  • Derek Paul Adler

    I have endorsed Tate for criminal defense, but that's honestly not fair. If I could, he'd receive an endorsement for criminal, contract, personal injury, property disputes - almost everything. This man is brilliant, reliable, and a great person to have in your corner. Highly recommend his services!

    It would be an understatement to say that Tate Helms is brilliant, hard-working and dedicated. He is the smartest and hardest working attorney I have ever met. I have referred many clients to him, and all have had nothing but positive remarks about Tate. If you want the best, hardest working and smartest attorney on your side, Tate is your man.
