Jason J. Patton

I was born and raised here in Albuquerque. I received my B.A. from the University of Denver where I graduated with honors. Before attending law school I spent approximately fifteen years in the construction business. I have extensive experience in both commercial and residential construction, and I currently hold a GB-98 contractors license, which covers both commercial and residential general construction. While in law school at the University of New Mexico School of Law, I completed an externship at the New Mexico Court of Appeals as well as at the United States District Court. My wife and I are blessed with two daughters and a son. When not practicing law, I enjoy rock climbing, trail running and most of all, spending time with my family.
