About me

Tim Tate, of Tate Law Offices PC, is a Texas personal injury lawyer who represents injured victims in car accidents, truck (18-wheeler) accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and wrongful death cases.  The law firm’s mission is to get its clients top-dollar settlements for their injury cases. Please visit our website for information about your injury case.


For over two decades Tim Tate has represented victims of injuries day-in and day-out throughout the state of Texas as well as in numerous other states.


Chosen by D Magazine as one of the Best Lawyers in Dallas in 2011 and 2012, Tim’s mission on every case is always to get the insurance company of the defendant to pay top dollar for his client’s case, which allows his clients to put the maximum amount of money into their pocket. Tim is a lifetime member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum and is a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association for Justice, all of which advocate and advance the rights of injured victims against insurance companies.  “When you see the type of abuse insurance companies deal out to people by refusing to pay legitimate claims and when you see them offer pennies on the dollar, it gives me a lot of satisfaction to make sure our clients are paid fairly. In many cases, we can get insurance companies to pay 10 to 50 times the amount of their original offers,” Tim states.


As a young man, Tim learned the value of hard work by working long hours for his father’s construction company. This lesson helps him every day as he engages in the hard work it takes to properly develop a case and battle insurance companies.


Tim received a business degree in finance from Southern Methodist University and a Juris Doctor (law degree) from South Texas College of Law. He lives in Plano, Texas, with his wife, Quyen Tate, and their two children Michelle and Daniel.  The family attends Bent Tree Bible Fellowship.  Michelle is a student at The University of Texas at Austin and Daniel is a student at Baylor University.  Tim is involved in a number of charities.
