Accomplished Fort Wayne Family Lawyer Delivers Effective Counsel


Legal challenges are seldom welcomed, but sound advice from an experienced attorney gives you the best chance at a positive result. Patterson Law LLC in Fort Wayne has been fighting to help Indiana clients and their families protect their interests and overcome tough times since 2012. We handle a full range of family law matters, including divorce actions, child custody proceedings and alimony disputes. Our firm also assists with other legal concerns that can have a significant effect on you and the ones you love, such as personal injury litigation, estate matters and bankruptcy filings. Through honest advice and aggressive advocacy, our firm will stand with you in pursuit of a favorable outcome.


Don’t take on tough legal challenges on your own. When so much is on the line, you deserve a lawyer who is:

  • Accomplished — Our firm has established a strong record throughout the area. Even when facing tough odds, we aren’t intimidated and won’t let you be either.
  • Strategic — Certified as a Family Law Specialist by the Indiana Family Law Certification Board, Rex Patterson works one-on-one with clients to gain a true understanding of their values and goals. From there, we explain the legal options and develop a thorough strategy designed to achieve your objectives.
  • Respected — Whether you require assistance with a domestic legal matter, an injury suffered in an accident or a serious debt issue, the law firm you choose to represent you makes a difference. The reputation we’ve built will ensure that your concerns get the respect they deserve.

We have the experience, skill and determination to assert your rights effectively. From your consultation through the conclusion of your case, you will see why colleagues and former clients recommend our work.

Areas of Practice


In Allen County and throughout the surrounding area, we deliver tenacious representation in situations relating to:

  • Family law — We handle all types of family law matters, including marriage dissolution, adoption,guardianship proceedings and the negotiation of prenuptial agreements.
  • Divorce — Going through a divorce is a life-changing event, but you can’t lose focus on alimony, property division and parenting issues. In uncontested cases and highly charged breakups, we tenaciously pursue a favorable result.
  • Child custody and support — Even when everyone claims to be focused on a child’s best interests, serious disputes can occur. Whether you’re looking to resolve a custody, child support or grandparent visitation conflict, our firm works to create the best environment possible for young people.
  • Personal injury — If you’ve suffered a personal injury in an auto accident, fall or some other type of incident caused by someone else’s negligence, we’ll fight to bring you the compensation you deserve. For cases involving deadly harm, we represent plaintiffs in wrongful death litigation.
  • Estate planning and litigation — To help transfer assets properly and honor decedents’ instructions, we offer knowledgeable estate planning and litigation counsel, including the preparation of wills and trusts.
  • Bankruptcy — When debt problems become overwhelming, we can outline potential remedies that can help you rebuild your credit. In bankruptcy actions under Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, we obtain solutions that discharge debt and establish fair repayment plans.
  • Real estate — Completing a real estate transaction properly requires skillful legal guidance. Our firm explains each detail of the process and safeguards your rights.

Regardless of your particular legal needs, we’ll aggressively pursue a lasting solution and look to employ alternatives to litigation, such as mediation, when that’s in your best interest.
