BPR Story Features Patton Documents

95 Charlotte

Siemens Family Law Group’s office in the historic    Patton-Parker House.

Blue Ridge Public Radio did a story this week on the historic documents found in the ceiling of the Patton-Parker House during renovations last year. The documents provide glimpses of Asheville’s past through records of the Patton family, which played an influential role in various areas of the city’s history.

The documents have since been donated to Pack Memorial Library in downtown Asheville, and pictures of a few of the pieces are displayed throughout the building at Siemens Family Law Group.

The story, along with a slideshow featuring some of the donated documents, is available on the Blue Ridge Public Radio site: Historic Patton Documents Find New Home at Pack Library.

We are proud to share that Brenda Coppede and Diane McDonald of Siemens Family Law Group are in Haiti this week, with Consider Haiti, running clinics in Mountrois, Ivoire and Fond Baptiste.  Brenda planned this medical trip using her remarkable energy and talent for effective communication.  The focus, drive and intelligence Brenda brings to her lawyering works well, even in a country as tough to navigate as Haiti.  Thank you Brenda for all your good work, here at home and abroad!
