I was born in 1983. I finished my elementary school studies in Törökszentmiklós in 1998. I sat for the final examination in the Grammar School of Reformed College of Debrecen in 2002. I graduated summa cum laude (with the greatest honour) from the Faculty of Law at University of Szeged in 2007.

During my university studies I qualified as a sociological and business English translator. With regard to this qualification I was registered as a legal English translator by the town clerk of Törökszentmiklós.

In the academic year 2004/2005 I won the second prize in the competition of the Pan-European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers whose title was A European Future Towards Fair and Just Compensation of Victims. Therefore I took a one-month work experience in the Plymouth office of Bond Pearce Solicitors.

In the first term of the academic year 2006/2007 I studied at the Faculty of Law at University of Potsdam as an ERASMUS scholar.

From 9 July 2007 to 31 March 2011 I worked as a trainee attorney in the law office of my father, Dr. Csaba Pataky. On 9 March 2011 I passed the bar examination, on the basis thereof I have been practising as an attorney since 1 April 2011 as a member of the Bar Association of County Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok.

Since September 2009 I am also a PhD student at the Faculty of Law at Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church and then at the Faculty of Law at Pázmány Péter Catholic University. My field of research is the compulsory motor vehicle third-party liability insurance, with special regard to the European motor insurance directives. In June 2012 I completed my PhD studies.

I am the member of the Hungarian Scientific Association for Transport, the Association of Traffic Judges (its new name: Association of Traffic Law), the Insurance Law Section of the Hungarian Lawyer’s Association, the Hungarian Association of Penal Law as well as the Pan-European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers (PEOPIL) and the Institute for European Traffic Law. In October 2010 I was elected to one of the members of the Full Executive Board of the Institute for European Traffic Law. In September 2012 I was also elected to one of the members of the Full Executive Board of PEOPIL.

As of September 2012 I participate in the post-graduate training related to insurance law.

I regularly participate in conferences in Hungary and abroad as well, I delivered several lectures in foreign languages as well.

My special fields of interests are civil law, with special regard to tort law, insurance law, company law, private international law, international trade law and traffic (criminal) law.

I am fluent in English and German.

Our law office was built in 1970 as an office building of the attorneys’ cooperative according to the then rules of law. In the 1970s there were 8 attorneys in this attorneys’ cooperative. From 1975 to its termination in 1991 Dr. Csaba Pataky was the head of the Attorneys’ Cooperative of Törökszentmiklós.

In 1991 the property of attorneys was privatized and then Dr. Csaba Pataky purchased the portion of the Bar from this real estate so now this is our own property.

In 2002 we had the building renovated fully, we have completely and exactingly furnished it with first rate office furniture and original paintings. Under these original circumstances we are entirely at our domestic and foreign clients’ disposal.

Our office is situated in a frequented and undisturbed place of Törökszentmiklós, in the vicinity of the main roads, railway station and bus station. The place is suitable for absorbed and undisturbed work as well as scientific activity.

Our clients feel pleasantly in our law office where we ensure the most important thing, the atmosphere of calm discussion to our clients.

Both of us have access to TAKARNET database which means that we are entitled to download an extract from the land register and a map section of real estate from the Internet. Both of us have electronic signature which is among others necessary for the registration procedures of companies and other business associations as well as for order for payment procedures.
