Patrick Palace is a litigator who has made some life changes. He grew out his hair, sports athleisure wear more than suits, and focuses on legal technology and systems to expand his Tacoma, Washington, firm rather than trying to be the No. 1 trial lawyer and rainmaker. A workers’ compensation attorney who also does plaintiffs personal-injury cases, he acquired five law practices in two years. Palace is also a former Washington State Bar Association president, and he’s trying to convince other lawyers to embrace innovation and change in the profession rather than beat it back.
