Patrick Ray was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee and raised in Birmingham, Alabama and Jacksonville, Florida. Patrick graduated from the University of North Florida, attended the University of Florida, and received his law degree from Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law in 1993. While at Cumberland, he was a member of the Trial Advocacy Board and placed in several trial competitions.
For almost 20 years Patrick has fought for the rights of injured and hurting people. He has obtained Social Security Disability and SSI for thousands of people throughout Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, and Tennessee.
Patrick has is a firm believer that everyone who wants to work should work. However, if the time comes where one is injured or sick and can no longer work, one should be able to get the benefits from Social Security that are rightfully owed. Unfortunately, the system has made it very difficult to qualify. Patrick enjoys the challenge of making a client’s unique case fit into the system and win.
In addition to Social Security Disability, Patrick has tried 50 personal injury jury trials to verdict as sole or lead chair throughout Alabama. He has also recovered millions for injured people. He is admitted to practice in Alabama state court, as well as the Northern, Middle and Southern Districts in Alabama.
Patrick is accredited with the Veteran’s Administration to represent disabled veterans in their claims for service connected disabilities. He is a member of the American Bar Association and the Birmingham Bar Association.
Outside of the legal world, Patrick has enjoyed coaching Upward basketball and flag football for several years. He and his wife Carla are the parents of three children.
“I have been fighting the little man’s fight since I began my career. These are the small cases that don’t make the headlines, but mean a lot to my client, and mean a lot to me. I like to think I have helped make several thousand people’s lives a little better, one at a time.”
