Kira Patterson’s professional life thus far has been rich and varied. She has acted in professional theater, worked for a company specializing in public health, managed employees at a nonprofit theater company, and edited and researched as a paralegal – and that was all before law school!

Kira realized that becoming a lawyer would be a perfect way to combine these experiences: her strong public speaking, management, editorial skills, and degree in Psychology from Tufts University made her uniquely prepared for her time at USC Gould School of Law.

While at Gould, Kira was a devoted student who expanded her skillsets by becoming a research assistant, a teaching assistant and grader for undergraduate law courses, and an editor for the Southern California Law Review.

Her law school experience culminated in an opportunity for Kira to combine her interests of law and theater, and her piece “Affirmative Acting: A Note in Five Acts” was published in the Southern California Law Review.

Based on her background in theater, Kira is passionate about centering her work as an attorney on empathy. She aims to not only represent her clients, but to truly hear them; and she is thrilled to now be using her skills to advocate on behalf of consumers.

Kira is admitted to practice law in all State and Federal Courts in California
