Gregory Patton – About
Mr. Patton began his career defending large corporations and insurance companies against claims of negligence, defective products and malpractice. After two years as a defense attorney, he switched sides and has exclusively represented victims of negligence, personal injury, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, wrongful death, defective products, and other acts of negligence.
With jury trials being Mr. Patton’s strength, he has taken dozens of cases to trial against hospitals, insurance companies, large corporations, and other entities, resulting in multi-million dollar verdicts for his clients. His experience and expertise have resulted in large verdicts in a wide range of catastrophic injury matters, including birth injuries, brain injuries, medical malpractice, wrongful death, train wrecks, amusement park ride injuries, failure to diagnose cancer, negligent security cases, premises liability, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, invasion of privacy, breach of contract and many others. In 2003, Mr. Patton won the largest medical malpractice verdict for a brain injured adult in Orange County, California (over $17 million) and settled one of the largest birth injury cases in Arizona ($8 million.) Because he is known for his unwavering resolve to take cases to trial, many times defendants will opt to settle the case before trial.

He is a graduate of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy and a member of the following organizations: Million-Dollar Advocate’s Forum, an organization for exclusive membership by attorneys who have obtained verdicts and/or settlements of at least one million dollars, Arizona Trial Lawyers Association, and Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles.
