The Best Lawyer in America
Thank you Mr. Tatum for assisting me with my divorce settlement. His team made sure I got full control of my business back. You’re the best law firm in town. The professionalism and knowledge you have is unmatched. Miss. Thais was also very accommodating and made sure my concerns were heard whenever I could not reach Mr. Tatum. They always got back to me at their earliest convenience. If you booked with Mr. Tatum you’ll be in great hands he is a god fearing man who is direct and to the point.

5 Star For This Credit Specialist
I want to use this opportunity to say a BIG thanks to Hacknet Credit Specialist for what he did for me and my family. I used to have a couple of inquires, negative entries, charge-off, school loans bank judgment, credit card debts all these deprive me from purchasing a home but after interacting with him right now all those are not on my credit report him got all of them out of my credit and raised my score to 798 I also got a high credit limit of $10,000. Please do well to contact him for credit fixes on [email protected] +1 646 450 2754.

Larry is my Hero!
A good friend of mine who knew Mr. Tatum both personally and professionally recommended him to me for my divorce from my Narc ex-husband. He was very dedicated and professional and his primary focus was on protecting my family/property/and assets. He was diligent even when opposing council was stalling and was able to bring my case to a successful "DREAM CASE" conclusion. I highly recommend Larry and his team. Thank you so much Larry, you rock!

Glad I called
Mr. Larry Tatum was referred by a friend, and I’m glad I called. I was seen quickly, and he was thorough and clear of what documents he needed and why and what he could do for my case. I was happy with the attention my case got. Thanks!

Juvenile
Mr. Tatum was awesome. He helped my son more than I can express. He was very professional and got all the information he could before seeing the judge. He is the first attorney to take the time to listen.

Out of State Traffic Ticket
I was cited for running a red light while passing through GA. Mr. Tatum was able to get the charge reduced to only a minor violation so that it wouldn't negatively impact my NC driver's license and insurance premium. Mr. Tatum was available via phone and email to answer all of my questions, and the matter was resolved long before my actual court day. I highly recommend Tatum Law Firm.

Great recommendation
I would refer Mr.Tatum to anyone in need of thorough professional hard working attorney. He went over and beyond to meet my needs and request. It’s nothing like having an attorney that will fight for you and also has a sense of humor at the same time. But he always remained professional and he’s a very good spirited person. Thank you again Mr.Tatum for all you’ve done. I look forward to recommending you to others in need of your services!!

Great Attorney
Larry Tatum has represented me and my family on several occasions. We are proud to call him not only our lawyer, but also our friend. Mr. Tatum puts his heart and soul into a case, he studies and researches the details, obtains additional information and truly cares about his clients. Mr. Tatum's attitude towards his legal practice is based on Godly principals and I believe that is why Larry is so successful as an attorney. While working on my immigration case, Larry reached out to his network, involved our state congressman, pursued many alternatives, came up with the "out of the box" legal solutions, continued to encourage me and never gave up and achieved a positive outcome, that effected the rest of my life. I know if you choose Mr. Tatum to represent you and help him to get all the necessary detail for your case, he will do his very best. Thank you Larry.

Attorney Larry H. Tatum is practical, very knowledgeable and care deeply about his clients. When I hired Attorney Larry H.

I totally recommend his legal services.

We hired Larry two times to help our son out of a sticky situation. He provided excellent guidance and support. The end result was no record against our son.

Great Family Practice Attorney
Larry did a wonderful job walking my family through the ins and outs of executing powers of attorney when my father suffered a severe stroke that resulted in massive cognitive impairment. He gave wonderful counsel with grace and was able to inject appropriate humor to lighten strain of the challenges we were facing.

Larry represented me during a very difficult period in my life. His knowledge of family law is second to none. He was always well prepared and would let me know what to expect. He stayed focused on my best interest and the best interest of my children. He is very professional and ethical attorney and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Excellent Divorce Lawyer
I hired Mr. Tatum to represent me in my divorce and custody case. He was very easy to talk to, was responsive to my inquiries, and did very well in court. He was upfront with me about what to expect, and the results so far have been very favorable.

Family Court
I am pleased with Attorney Larry Tatum, getting my child support order reversed. He didn't try to charge me outrageous fee's, he accomplished, what he had promised, she showed that he was concern about the welfare of the child. I would recommend him to friends, and family members.
