Timothy Patterson is the senior shareholder of Booth Patterson, P.C., where he has remained since
beginning his practice in 1968. In his 42+ years as an attorney, he has been an active trial attorney, trying
hundreds of cases ranging from simple municipal ordinance violations to complex zoning, condemnation,
contract, personal injury and contract cases. His vast experience as an active practitioner, mediator,
arbitrator and facilitator has provided him with the tools and expertise required to serve as a neutral
mediator. In addition to serving as a neutral on Oakland County Circuit Court Case Evaluation Panels, he
also serves as a volunteer for the Oakland County Circuit Court Early Intervention Conference Program
and as a Discovery Master.
Patterson’s commitment and passion for facilitation and mediation were instilled early on in his legal
career. He served as Circuit Court Clerk for the Honorable Frederick C. Ziem who delegated to him the
responsibility to conduct pre-trial conferences with the goal of effectuating settlements. He served as a
volunteer for the pilot facilitation and settlement day programs instituted by the Oakland County Circuit
Court. He has continuously updated his skills and training through ICLE sponsored advanced mediation,
negotiation and dispute resolution trainings. He believes that most litigation can be prevented or
concluded by respectful, attentive and purposeful mediation.

In June of 2008, Patterson was recognized by the Oakland County Bar Association for 40 years of service
to the legal profession. He has been recognized as a Distinguished Fellow for the Waterford Foundation
for Public Education. In 2003, he received the Presidents Award for the Clarkston area Chamber of
Commerce. He served as President for the Clarkston Chamber of Commerce from 2003 – 2004.
