About Sanders B. Patton, Senior Litigation Attorney

Sacramento divorce attorney Sanders B. Patton strongly believes everyone needs help in times of distress. Divorce is no different.

“Helping others to navigate the complicated process and sorting out the problems that come from dissolving a marriage, making simple that which is confusing, is important to me,” he said.

“Mr. Patton works extremely well with all parties involved in the family law process. His experience in criminal defense taught him to achieve the best result possible when the stakes are at their highest.

“This is not a quick process, and it is often overwhelming,” he said. “I am here to guide you through, answer your questions, and provide guidance on the direction your case can take. Most of all, I am here to fight for you and to ensure the best outcome given the circumstances.

“I will listen to your concerns, advocate for your rights, and always give you my honest opinion about your case.”


Mr. Patton is licensed to practice in California.


Mr. Patton earned his Juris Doctor from Thomas Jefferson School of Law. He received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Southern California.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
  • “It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
    – Mason B.
  • “Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
    – Mark L.
