FSBR Welcomes Christopher Patterson to the Firm

Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC welcomes Chris S. Patterson to the law firm to handle municipal and intellectual property matters.  He becomes the 10th attorney at the firm, which opened in 2008 and now serves more than 100 townships, cities, villages, counties, drain commissioners, and public libraries.

Chris is a Michigan native from the Thumb area.  He served a two-year appointment as judicial law clerk for Judge Lawrence Zatkoff in the Federal District Court in Port Huron before joining Fahey Schultz.  Chris was also an extern law clerk for Judge David McKeague in the Federal Sixth Circuit Appeals Court, and was a summer law clerk for Judge Donald Teeple in Sanilac County Circuit Court.

Chris is a 2010 magna cum laude graduate of the Michigan State University College of Law, where he wrote for the Law Review, acted as a teaching assistant and research assistant, and received a merit scholarship.

“We are thrilled to have Chris join us,” said Steve Schultz, President of the firm.  “Chris brings substantial court experience to our team of municipal lawyers.  His addition will help us to continue responding quickly to the pressing needs of our growing municipal client base.”
