Crabtree & Patterson
As Chief Deputy Prosecutor and Criminal Court Judge, David Patterson worked every angle of the biggest cases in the district for over 30 years, presiding over 30,000 cases. He has teamed up with Seth Crabtree to make that skill and experience available to the clients of Crabtree & Patterson.
As an attorney, Crabtree has fought all the way to the Tennessee Supreme Court - and won - changing Tennessee law statewide to the benefit of the criminally accused. Read about that victory here.
Additionally, he has taken several of the most severe criminal charges - Felonies with a penalty of 25-60 years in prison - all the way through jury trial - and won. He has secured not guilty verdicts and several full acquittals, exonerating his clients. You can read about those here and here.
