Our History

Nearly all counsel with PATTON TRIAL GROUP have 15 years or more of litigation experience. What now constitutes PATTON TRIAL GROUP was the Southern California Offices of McDowell Shaw Garcia & Patton. Christopher Patton was the primary trial attorney and Managing Partner of the Los Angeles/Ontario, Orange County/Newport Beach and San Diego Offices of McDowell Shaw Garcia & Patton. In 2021 David McDowell started his move toward retirement, and Shaw & Garcia opened a Northern California firm, paving the way for the opening of the offices of the PATTON TRIAL GROUP.

With offices in Ontario, Newport Beach, Walnut Creek and San Diego, PATTON TRIAL GROUP has the capacity to cover the entire state of California.
