A native of Charlotte, Patrick received his Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science, with a Minor in Criminal Justice, from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. While pursuing his degree, Patrick maintained leadership roles with several student organizations, including the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity and the Inter-Fraternity Council.
Upon graduating, Patrick followed his passion for the law and politics to Washington, DC, where he served for two years in a government consulting role with CGI Federal, a global financial software services firm. During his time with CGI Federal, Patrick provided financial and technical consulting services to several government agencies tasked with various missions, including national security and law enforcement. These collective experiences ultimately inspired Patrick’s decision to pursue a career in law.
When he’s not in the office, Patrick loves to spend quality time with friends and family, playing golf, tennis, and chess, and of course, playing with his two-year-old German Shepherd, Sammie.
