Kristi Browne spent most of her career as a plaintiffs’ class action attorney representing individuals in consumer fraud, securities, mortgage fraud, antitrust, ERISA and employment cases. She also represented businesses in breach of contract cases, control disputes and trademark infringement actions. Class action work has provided her with the opportunity to hone her skills at complex litigation–everything from how orange juice is made to the intricacies of the mortgage backed securities market. Ms. Browne also practices in the area of education advocacy, representing parents like herself who have children with special needs to obtain services from their school districts.

Ms. Browne joined The Patterson Law Firm, LLC in September 2005. She has argued appeals in front of the Illinois and Wisconsin appellate courts as well as the federal courts of appeals for the Seventh and Fifth Circuits and has prepared appeals in the Eleventh Circuit. She serves on the Judicial Evaluation Committee for the Lesbian and Gay Bar Association of Chicago and is also an active member of her local PTA. She has been named an Illinois Leading Lawyer for 2016 in commercial litigation.
