More About Patti

Some people have a way of making the complicated look easy. Patti is one of those people. Bankers, private lenders, independent business owners and real-estate investors know they can trust her. Countless times, Patti’s helped them successfully navigate sticky situations around Commercial Lending, Commercial Real Estate and Corporate Law.

As a partner with Bishop & McKenzie, Patti brings a friendly and practical approach to identifying issues while providing insight and education. She’s focused on relationships and sees beyond the challenges. Patti knows that we are people first and lawyers second. It’s a principle that’s allowed her to build and maintain many strong relationships within the firm and beyond.

Patti supports industry and community organization such as Edmonton CREW and Basically Babies Ltd. But it’s no secret that perhaps her biggest priority in life is family. She finds endless joy in seeing her son develop into a good citizen and while she helps clients successfully navigate legal challenges, she also successfully navigates the seas by sailboat with family and friends.
