Attorney Rick Patterson works diligently to protect sex abuse victims. In 2007, he was honored by The Santa Clarita Valley Bar Association in a lawsuit he initiated (with his own daughter as the plaintiff) in order to obtain an injunction against Jack McClellan, a self-proclaimed pedophile who posted pictures of young girls in Santa Clarita on his Internet website with details on where to find them.

Mr. Patterson also worked closely with Assemblyman Cameron Smyth on Assembly Bill 534, which makes it a misdemeanor to engage in surrogate stalking, which is the act of publishing photos, physical descriptions, and/or locations of children with the intent that another person would use that information to commit a crime against a child. Consequently, the protections won in the lawsuit were made permanent after the bill was signed into law by Governor Schwarzenegger.
