My name is Steven Patterson and I live in my hometown of Salem, Missouri. I am an attorney in Salem and focus my practice on real estate, estate planning, probate, and criminal law. Specifically, I enjoy working on boundary, easement, and title issues, as well as riparian rights and other issues related to private property. I provide estate planning services including wills, trusts, nonprobate transfers and powers of attorney.

I grew up in the area and graduated from Salem High School in 2003. After graduating from Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri in 2007, I returned to Salem and began working as a land survey technician at Ruble Surveying Co. At Ruble Surveying, I worked my way up and obtained my Land-Surveyor-in-Training license in 2012, during my first semester of law school.

During law school at the University of Missouri School of Law in Columbia, I made the Dean’s List five of six semesters and worked as a law clerk at Van Matre, Harrison, Hollis, Taylor & Elliott, P.C. After graduating from law school, I worked as an associate attorney at Allen & Rector, P.C. in Lebanon, Missouri for two years, which included managing their Waynesville, Missouri office for the last year. I had a general practice at Allen & Rector, P.C. which included matters in family, real estate, criminal, and civil law. I now live in Salem with my gorgeous wife Stevie, our son Jacob and golden retriever Abner. In my spare time I enjoy hunting, fishing, and sports.

My goal is to help you solve whatever problem you face, and to do so competently and in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
