Patricia Patton

Attorney in Washington County, Maryland

I was an attorney representing children in cases of abuse or neglect in Washington County, MD. In the late 90′s I enrolled in the Conflict Transformation Program (now the CJP) of Eastern Mennonite University with the conviction that I needed to be in an environment where there were constructive approaches to conflict and a determination to deal with it honorably.

After graduation I returned to my law practice with useful tools for coping with the challenges of my profession–not just the challenges inherent in dealing with specific conflicts, but the challenges of dealing with a steady diet of conflict.
