Brent A. Patterson, Partner

Brent A. Patterson, originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Brent spent his summers at his grandmother’s home in Franklin, North Carolina. Upon his graduation from Louisiana State University, he moved to Winston Salem and graduated law school at Wake Forest University in 1992. Brent worked for two years in Charlotte for the law firm of Blakeney and Alexander doing primarily labor and employment defense work. He moved his practice to Gastonia, North Carolina in 1994.

After “changing sides,” Brent realized that he wanted to work fighting for individuals against businesses and insurance companies who were trying to deny these people their rights. His focus has been on personal injury, medical malpractice, worker’s compensation and general negligence claims.

Brent spent ten years with the Tim L. Harris firm and as a partner in its successor, Harris, Ragan, Patterson & Rodgers. Patterson Adams was formed when Brent and Scott discovered that they shared a common interest in giving personal attention to each case including trying cases no matter the size in order to protect the rights of working people. Both Brent and Scott are dedicated to client service and seeking justice for the little guy. Brent has tried cases all over Western North Carolina, but has concentrated in Gaston, Cabarrus, Rowan and Mecklenburg Counties. He has taught a number of Continuing Legal Education classes on negligence and Trial Advocacy.

Because of his trial experience and dedication to his clients, Brent is often sought out by other attorneys that do not focus on injury claims. He has developed strong referral relationships in both North and South Carolina with fellow colleagues that practice in several different areas of the law. He is the past President of the Gaston and 27A Judicial District Bar Associations and is active in the community. Brent lives with his wife Benet, of twenty-six years and their two children.

Scott M. Adams, Partner

Scott graduated from law school at Wake Forest University in 1997 and immediately went to work representing injured people by opening the Concord office of Tim L. Harris & Associates. He was amazed to learn how poorly injured people were treated by the insurance companies who were supposed to be "on your side," and quickly realized that he had chosen the right area of the law. Scott loves to fight for "the little guy" against these powerful companies and to do whatever is necessary to insure justice for his clients.

While working for the Harris firm (later Harris Ragan Patterson & Rodgers), Scott met Brent Patterson, who shared his philosophy of client service, hard work, and dedication to justice. It was while the two were working together as partners in that firm that Patterson Adams was first conceived.

Scott has tried cases throughout North Carolina, but has spent most of his time representing the people of Cabarrus and Rowan Counties. Scott believes in giving every one of his clients the kind of personal attention and concern that is not possible for the lawyers at the big city Mega-firms. Scott lives with his wife, Jolene, and their three children in Concord, where he is actively involved in the community.
