Greenville, South Carolina attorney Doug Patrick's law practice emphasizes complex litigation in areas including business disputes, catastrophic personal injuries, and wrongful death. His success in the field of law has led to recognition by a number of respected organizations, such as the International Society of Barristers, American College of Trial Lawyers, and Best Lawyers in America. His honors include receiving the 2015 Founders Award for outstanding service by the South Carolina Association of Justice and being named Lawyer of the Year by the American Board of Trial Advocates in 2013. Closer to home, the Greenville County Bar Association awarded Doug its Tommy Thomason Award for service to the profession and community in 2015.
Doug is known for his work ethic, attention to detail, and perseverance on behalf of his clients. But he also never forgets the personal side of legal matters affecting his clients' health, families and livelihoods; he is equally known for the honest, caring approach he takes to each matter a client entrusts to him. His approach to law also has deeper roots. In Doug's words:
I consider the practice of law part of my service to my Lord and creator. For this reason, I have always endeavored to place the needs of my clients above all else. When a client places their trust in me, I consider their case regardless of size or complexity to be my most important mission.
Doug endeavors to be active in his church and the Greenville community, and has also performed mission work abroad. Married for 40 years, he is blessed with three sons and six grandchildren (so far).
Frequent lecturer for the South Carolina Association for Justice (formerly SC Trial Lawyers Association) Annual Convention, Auto Torts and Young Lawyer Seminar, and for the South Carolina Bar Association Bridge the Gap Program, 1996-2004.
