Jon Patton is a partner at Tillotson Law and has been Jeff Tillotson’s right-hand man since 2014. Jon and Jeff met when Jon moved to Dallas as a young associate and joined the prominent boutique litigation firm Jeff had co-founded in the early 1990s. Right away, Jon helped Jeff pursue Lance Armstrong in a highly publicized arbitration that resulted in a $10 million award for their client. A lasting professional dynamic and friendship was born, and in 2016 Jon and Jeff founded Tillotson Law based on a shared vision of an elite boutique trial firm that could try any case for any client. Since then, they have carefully assembled a top-notch, specialized trial team passionate about trying and winning cases.
Jon has accelerated his career and developed his own clients by amassing an impressive array of experiences in a wide range of complex and high-stakes commercial and business disputes. He has extensive first chair trial and courtroom experience, and has earned the trust of clients on their most challenging problems. For example:
Jon graduated from Vanderbilt Law School and received his undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt, summa cum laude with Honors.
