Support continues for Patterson Law’s newest Pictou County additions.
Published November 25, 2021
Rick Goodman Q.C. and Greg MacDonald Q.C., senior lawyers in Patterson Law’s New Glasgow office, agree whole heartedly with the comments of George White and Gerald Green regarding the addition of seven new lawyers to Patterson’s Pictou County offices.
Rick and Greg, Pictou County lawyers for 45+ years, members of the northern Nova Scotian business community, and lifelong residents of New Glasgow are thrilled to share their support for Patterson Law’s latest additions and the inherent benefits now being received by the region.
Current member of the Recruitment and Retention Committee of the Pictou Medical Society and past member of Pictou County’s Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Committee, Rick understands firsthand how important the presence of professional legal services is to growing communities such as Pictou and New Glasgow.
“The additional lawyers joining Patterson Law assure Pictou County residents that they will continue to receive expert legal help within their own community,” said Rick. “From an economic development point of view, this is crucial infrastructure and an important benefit to all northern Nova Scotian residents.”
Greg’s extensive practice in real estate purchase, sale, migration, and mortgage transactions as well as a busy wills and estates administration section exemplifies the positive impact that providing high quality legal services from directly within northern Nova Scotia has on the region. His ability to provide a breadth of transaction solutions while remaining local to Pictou County is a feature, he knows Patterson Law’s newest additions will expand to their own respective areas of law.
“Patterson Law has always done their part to support lawyers in the pursuit to serve their own local communities,” said Greg. “We’ve experienced the support when merging our own practice, Goodman MacDonald with Patterson Law, and we now have the privilege of witnessing this support from the other side. As the need to support economic growth in northern Nova Scotia increases, supporting northern Nova Scotian lawyers to continue to practice within their own communities becomes even more important for keeping local talent in the region. This sets Patterson Law apart from the masses who outsource this work to other cities.”
