Your District Attorney
After graduating from Northwest Guilford High School, Pat enlisted in the U.S. Army, where he worked as a combat engineer during a tour of duty in South Korea. When he finished his military service in 1994, Pat enrolled in the University of North Carolina in Charlotte, where he completed his Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, minor in Economics. While studying at UNC-Charlotte, Pat interned with the U.S. Attorney's office where he learned he had a passion for the law and was accepted to study the law at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, Mississippi.
He worked as an intern in the Alamance County District Attorney's office in the Domestic Violence Prosecution Section. Pat began his prosecutorial career in the 20th Prosecutorial District, working Anson, Richmond, Stanly and Union Counties. In 2006 he moved back to Alamance County when he accepted a job prosecuting for District Attorney Robert Johnson. In December of 2009, Pat was appointed to fill the vacant District Attorney position left by Johnson, who became a Superior Court Judge.
