Pat was born and raised in Columbia. He attended Dreher High School downtown and went to the University of South Carolina where he obtained a Bachelors of Science degree in Accounting with a minor in Political Science. While attending USC, Pat found his love for helping people in need while working for attorney Richard “Dick” Harpootlian.
After graduating from USC, Pat went on to obtain his law degree from the Charleston School of Law. While in law school, Pat clerked for several top attorneys in Harpootlian, including A. Camden “Cam” Lewis, and Keith Babcock, as well as both the 1st Circuit Solicitors Office and the 9th Circuit Solicitors Office.
Upon Graduating from law school and passing the bar he worked at the Richland County Public Defender’s office where he handled over 700 General Sessions cases. He then prosecuted DUIs for the City of Columbia. After a short time as a prosecutor, Pat found himself really missing helping those in need, so he branched out and started the Law Office of Patrick C. Sharpe, L.L.C.
In his free time, Pat enjoys watching sports and spending time with his dog, Foxy.
