6 Questions with Ty Stimpson
1. What’s the most valuable lesson you learned from your education? From your previous work?
One of the most valuable lessons I learned from my education is, “It’s not where you start but where you finish.” Although cliché, it has held true throughout my career.
2. Why did you choose to work in this industry? Tell us about any valuable lessons you learned in your career.
For nearly a decade, I have been seeking justice for individuals in our community. I’m passionate about my community and love to help those who may need a trusted person to stand by their side during a difficult time and advocate on their behalf. The opportunity to join Patterson Law Group and continue seeking justice for individuals in my community was a perfect fit.
A valuable lesson I learned early in my career is to be over-prepared and expect the unexpected. Starting as early as peewee football, I remember being taught important life lessons like “if you’re not first, you’re last,” “if you aren’t early, you’re late” and “you’re never to rest until your good is better and your better is best.” Therefore, I make sure I’m as thorough and prepared as possible for any twists and turns a case may bring.
3. Describe a time that your career was rewarding and a challenge that you’ve overcome.
There is nothing more rewarding than when a family embraces you after getting justice for their loved one. I have been blessed to have those opportunities happen often in my career. In my new role at Patterson Law Group, I hope to have more of those moments as we get more justice for more families.
4. What causes are you passionate about?
There are so many causes and organizations that are near and dear to my heart, I can’t possibly choose just one! I’m involved in several organizations such as the Boys & Girls Club and Tarrant Area Food Bank. I’m truly passionate about advocating for underserved communities.
5. Describe the impact you hope to bring to Patterson Law Group and its clients.
I am a battle-tested trial attorney who’s willing to fight to ensure each of our clients receives the justice they deserve. Having been lead attorney on thousands of cases, including several jury trials, our clients can rest assured that we will never run or back down from a trial if necessary.
I hope to continue building on the reputation Patterson Law Group has as being the premier personal injury law firm in Texas. In addition to being known as skilled litigators, we are a firm that cares and gives back to the community. We are not just attorneys. We are your neighbors and your friends, working together to make our communities great.
6. Tell us about your personal life (family, pets, hobbies).
I am married to my beautiful and talented wife, Jordan Rolfe Stimpson, who is a practicing attorney in Fort Worth. We have two children, an angel son, William Fitzgerald, and daughter, Wyatt Frances, and our Goldendoodle, “Ro.” I enjoy playing golf, going to live sporting events, attending concerts and trying new restaurants.
