Christopher Patterson Named a “Top 5 Under 35” Attorney

Christopher Patterson, an associate attorney with the firm, is recognized as one of the “Top 5” attorneys under the age of 35 in Ingham County for 2017. The award recipients were selected by the Board of Directors of the Ingham County Bar Association. Chris was recognized at the Association’s Annual Barristers Night in late March. The Board of Directors made its selection based upon the nominees’ commendable character, integrity, judgment and legal scholarship; service to the profession and the Bar; service to the community; and reputation for the advancement of the highest legal standards and professional responsibility.

Chris joined Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC in 2013, after serving a two-year appointment as judicial law clerk for the Honorable Lawrence P. Zatkoff in the Federal District Court in Port Huron, Michigan. Chris is a 2010 magna cum laude graduate of the Michigan State University College of Law, where he wrote for the Law Review and received a merit scholarship. He is a highly active attorney in the areas of municipal law and commercial and real property law. His experiences and skills enable Chris to capably manage municipal matters—big and small—for the firm’s municipal clients and bring an extraordinary and informed insight into the judicial process.

Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC was founded in 2008 and has grown from 4 to 15 attorneys in the past 9 years.
