Cameron Atkinson is a Christian, a trial and appellate lawyer at Pattis & Smith, LLC, a former business consultant, a published constitutional scholar, and a general hell-raiser. He has taken on substantial roles in briefing cases to the United States Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the Connecticut Supreme Court, the Connecticut Appellate Court, and multiple New York appellate courts. His past experience includes working for a federal judge and a state prosecutor in Connecticut and a civil litigation firm in New York. Atkinson has also consulted for countless startups seeking investment and several private investors looking to speculate in various industry disruption ventures.
Atkinson currently specializes in criminal defense, civil rights, employment, and any other case involving constitutional law that strikes him as worth a good fight. He takes a special interest in First Amendment cases involving free speech and a person’s freedom to exercise his or her religion. While he now prefers to have his business consulting tied to his law practice, he will consider business consulting on a stand-alone basis.
Attorney Atkinson also maintains a podcast and produces scholarly journal articles on a semi-regular basis.
