  • Allyson Shepston

    Tait is a very experienced and reliable attorney in many fields. I have referred a number of clients to Tait and will continue to do so; his experience and expertise along with his professional approach is a winning combination. He is supportive of his fellow attorneys in the community as well; I know this because I have called upon him to provide guidance to me in areas of law in which I am less familiar, and he is always willing to help. I highly recommend him.
