When the stakes are high, Jordan Patterson is who you want on your team.
Jordan defends companies and individuals facing civil and criminal litigation as well as government investigations. She has helped clients navigate probes by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission related to allegations of fraud and corruption, including potential violations of federal bribery laws and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
Jordan has experience at all stages of litigation, from factual investigation and discovery to trial preparation and trial. She has also handled a variety of pro bono matters, previously representing clients seeking asylum and social security disability benefits. Before joining Lightfoot, she worked in the Washington D.C. office of a major international law firm.
A native of Tuscaloosa, Jordan attended the University of Alabama School of Law. She also received her bachelor’s degree in accounting from UA and was a member of the school’s 2012 national championship softball team. Jordan approaches her cases with the same competitive fire and resiliency that she brought to the softball field.
While in law school, Jordan clerked for a U.S. District Court judge and spent her final semester interning in the Civil Division at the Department of Justice. Outside of the office, Jordan enjoys cheering on the Crimson Tide, spending time with her family and her miniature Goldendoodle, Zoey, listening to live music, and exploring all that Birmingham has to offer.
