    Tait is a very experienced and reliable attorney in many fields. I have referred a number of clients to Tait and will continue to do so; his experience and expertise along with his professional approach is a winning combination. He is supportive of his fellow attorneys in the community as well; I know this because I have called upon him to provide guidance to me in areas of law in which I am less familiar, and he is always willing to help. I highly recommend him.

  • Tyler Michael William Allen

    I have had a once in a lifetime opportunity in working for Tait. I couldn't find a better mentor and attorney to learn from the past couple of years. Tait is an outstanding attorney all around from his office to the courtroom. His attention to detail and trial skills are unmatched and just two of his qualities that I strive to possess myself. If I myself need legal assistance or advice, Tait is the attorney I always go to. You will not find a more trustworthy, thorough, and effective attorney than Tait. He is also pretty good at ping pong too.
