Grant is a voice for those who have been silenced and ignored.
Grant Patterson’s practice focuses primarily on civil rights, mass tort litigation, and complex personal injuries. He advocates for those with diverse backgrounds and identities in cases involving widespread corporate injustices—from the sale of dangerously defective products to discriminatory employment practices—as well as government actors and institutions that target individuals based on their race, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religion.
Believing that every person deserves equal access to the rights, benefits, and privileges afforded to them under the law, Grant practices law to seek justice for all—especially communities that the legal justice system has historically left behind.
Prior to beginning his legal practice, Grant clerked at DiCello Levitt while in law school and served as executive editor for the American Journal of Trial Advocacy, Vol. 46. He also worked as a judicial intern for a federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama, clerked at a prominent immigration firm, and served as a legislative intern in the Alabama House of Representatives.
