Atlanta Lawyer Magazine featured Kevin Patrick for the “Keys to Success” portion of the magazine. Kevin serves on the executive committee for the Board of Directors for the Atlanta Bar Association. As a personal injury trial attorney in Georgia, Kevin believes in the importance of staying active in the Atlanta legal community. The tips that Kevin learned are attributable to the lessons taught by his father. These lessons are useful not only in civil jury trials, but most importantly, in life.
Atlanta Lawyer Magazine will often ask Georgia attorneys for their thoughts on various legal matters. This time, the Atlanta Lawyer asked about Keys to Success. To Kevin, it is quite simple:
“Arrive on time, which in reality is 10 minutes early, remember to stand up straight, and always tell the truth.”
We would invite you to check out the entire magazine.There are some other great quotes from other Atlanta lawyers. For example, ‘The only failure is not to try.” Don’t just show up: DO.” And, (on a humorous note), “Study hard so you can go to medical school.” 😉 There are a number of useful and interesting articles about the legal profession in Georgia too.
These keys in the Atlanta Lawyer Magazine are important to Kevin as a person and attorney, especially as a trial lawyer in Atlanta, Georgia. For example, Kevin has an automobile accident case starting trial tomorrow in Cobb County State Court. It is supposed to start at 9:00. Kevin will be there by 8:30. FYI — He gives himself not just 10 minutes, but 30 for trial. By standing up straight, it shows respect for the Court, his client, and the whole civil justice system. Finally, tell the truth. It’s easy, and always the right thing to do. To paraphrase Mark Twain, If you tell the truth, then you don’t have to remember the last thing you just said.
