A total professional of great integrity and diligence.
As a journalist, I sought to copyright a catchphrase based on my name that I could protect and use for commercial purposes. As a friend, I was aware of his legal background, so I sought his counsel. Mr. Herndon walked me through the process with great care and diligence. He was a total professional, personable and accessible for any questions I may have regarding the entire process. I would not hesitate to recommend the legal services of Mr. Herndon and look forward to working him again.

Foreclosure Help
Tucker was willing to meet with me and spend the time explaining how the legal process and foreclosure laws work in Tennessee. He negotiated with my bank and was able to help save my house. I greatly appreciate his help. Thanks Tucker!
