Ashley Patten (“Patten”) is the founder and General Counsel for Patten Title. Before coming to the great state of Texas, Patten roots grew up in Clinton, LA, and he received his college diploma from Louisiana Tech University and juris doctorate from Loyola Law School in New Orleans, LA. After graduating law school in 1998, Patten was admitted into both the Louisiana Bar and Texas Bar.
Patten got his start in the title business in Dallas, TX when he accepted employment with a law school classmate in 2000. Shortly after joining, Patten was made partner and nominated to expand the operation to Houston, a challenge he readily accepted. Patten executed a Closing Services Agreement with American Title Company and was given a 30-day window to secure office space, staff, and begin operation, all of which came to fruition as planned.
As general counsel for Patten Title Company, Patten enjoys providing both his staff and customers with insightful direction and expertise, which allows the company to be solutions-oriented, especially in the face of difficult transactions. With over two decades of experience as a preeminent fee attorney and now title agent, Patten has developed an industry-wide reputation for being honest, endearing, and possessing expertise that enables the closing of even some of the most difficult transactions.
