Pat Cote Practices What He Teaches
There is an oft-misquoted maxim from George Bernard Shaw that “He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.” Patrick Cote is living proof that even time-honored maxims coined by brilliant playwrights are not always true. Judging by the expanded role he takes on with the criminal defense attorneys for whom he works, Cote is every bit as good at doing as he is at teach-ing. The current Vice President of AALPI's Board of Directors has had a long career of doing and teaching. In fact, by the time Cote arrived in Arizona for the second time in his career, in 2006, the East-Coast native had already had a distinguished career in law enforcement.
