Partners’ son brings Washington, D.C. experience and pro bono passion to SCV
(SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – February 14, 2020) – Award-winning law firm Owen, Patterson & Owen, LLP (OPO) has expanded its team with the addition of a familiar face. Beau Goodrick, son of partners Susan and Greg Owen, has returned to the Santa Clarita Valley to join the firm and try to give back to the community that gave him so much.
“Already accomplished as both an attorney and young leader, Beau is a great addition to Owen Patterson & Owen,” said partner Richard Patterson. “He brings to the firm valuable legal expertise combined with a heart for doing charitable work, which we think will benefit both the firm and the SCV.”
Goodrick returned to the Santa Clarita Valley after working in the Washington, D.C. office of an AmLaw 100 firm, where he specialized in corporate litigation. He earned his law degree from the Emory University School of Law after receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Southern California. He is licensed to practice in both California and the District of Columbia, as well as in front of each of California’s four United States District Courts, the Eastern District of Texas, and United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
“Coming back to Southern California gives me the opportunity to combine two things that are important to me: Doing what I can to assist people through difficult situations and doing it here at home,” said Goodrick. “I am excited for the opportunity to help people through my work at a well-respected firm; that my parents are two of the partners is more of a bonus.”
Through his work at OPO, Goodrick will focus on representing victims who have suffered injuries due to the negligence of others. He also plans to continue providing pro bono legal assistance. His past work includes representing an immigrant family through the asylum process as they fled gang violence, helping draft a petition for habeas corpus in an attempt to get a new trial for a Texas death row inmate convicted on discredited science, and successfully appealing the dismissal of the claims of a pretrial detainee treated unconstitutionally while in custody for charges that were dropped.
