I've hired Tom twice to date and I've been very pleased with the results. Each time my situation centered on Employment agreements. Most recently, we worked through a Non-Compete and Non-Solicit agreement dispute with my previous employer. Throughout the process, Tom was responsive and knowledgable. His letters on my behalf were convincing with cases cited to support our position. I'm happy to have had Tom in my corner, and recommend him to others.

My wife and I live over 500 miles from Tennessee and we hired Tom to help us collect a long overdue debt owed us from an old business acquaintance. Tom provided us with honest and professional representation while keeping our costs down. His advice was spot on and if in the future we were to need an attorney in Tennessee we would use Mr. Shumate and recommend you do the same.

I retained counsel from Tom out of state (more than 2k miles away). He was very clear with regards of the process and on what needed to be done. Likewise, his responses where quick, concise and communicated the critical points of the situation. He also made great suggestions, offered different perspectives while helping resolve the matter quickly and hassle free.
I would definitively recommend him for any business related matter.

Tom represented my company in a complicated matter. He analyzed it and after one month had it settled to our satisfaction. We have now decided to use him as our Corporate attorney.

Mr. Shumate represented me on a case in which l could not
get a clear certificate of title on a vehicle l purchased.
He was very professional and by following his instructions
the matter was resolved in my favor.
l would highly recommend him for any legal problems
that may arise.

I hired Tom to help clear up an employment contract dispute with a previous employer. Tom was quick to respond (unlike other lawyers in the area) and was eager to look over the facts regarding my case. Once Tom had a clear understanding of the issue at hand, he explained the options available to me and provided clear expectations of the possible outcomes while simultaneously offering his professional guidance. In the end, Tom was easy to work with, knowledgeable, and helped me reach the outcome I desired in a quick and timely manner. I would recommend Tom's services to anyone needing guidance with regards to employment law and any issues contained within.

Very knowledgeable & responsive when I needed help with a contract that I signed. Very pleasant personality to boot, which is not always the case with most pompous attorneys! I highly recommend Attorney Shumate.

I had no idea what I was dealing with coming into this experience and Tom did an outstanding job of explaining everything that was happening/ needed to happen. He explained it all in a way that I could understand easily and I felt completely at ease with him as my lawyer.

Tom provided excellent advice every step of the way. He was very knowledgeable, and kept me well informed of the applicable law, and my position during the duration of the lawsuit. I have complete trust in him. He also listened to my (uninformed) opinion, and explained the legal process very well. I would recommend him to anyone.
