Patricia T. O. Pearson, Of Counsel
  • Patricia Pearson joined GTH in 2001 and is a member of our Defense Litigation group where she represents and advises clients in a variety of matters including employment law, products liability and construction defects. She particularly enjoys focusing her skill and years of experience on legal research and writing.

    Although technically not a Northwest native, Patricia has lived here since her family moved to Seattle from Pittsburgh when she was still an infant. She is a proud graduate of Garfield High School and a dedicated athlete who numbers yoga, running, tennis, swimming, cycling, downhill skiing and cross-country skiing among her favorite pursuits.

    Patricia and her husband met in the 1st grade and, after considering the idea for a few decades, they eventually married and became the parents of two wonderful sons. Whether she’s gardening, exercising, or co-coaching her son’s soccer team to a 7-1 season, Patricia loves being outdoors. In fact, if she could find a way to practice law out in the open air without getting wet, she probably would.
