At Tate & Tate, we believe that everyone deserves personalized and reliable legal guidance. We encourage you to take an active role in the legal process so that you can feel more empowered with every decision. Together, we’ll work to keep your future bright.

Practice Areas

Estate Planning & Estate Administration

We handle most kinds of estate planning and administration matters, including those involving wills, trusts, family limited partnerships, conservatorships, guardianships, powers of attorney, advance health care directives, and more. In addition, part of our estate planning practice focuses on veterans’ benefits, Medicare, and other elder care issues.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

If you are unable to continue working because of a physical or mental disability and have seen an initial appeal denied by ADDS for non-technical reasons, we can guide you through the appeals process and help you secure the benefits you deserve.

Traffic & Misdemeanor Criminal Defense

Whether you’ve just been arrested or need help with appealing a municipal court conviction, we are ready to defend your rights and secure you a favorable outcome. Even when we can’t beat our clients’ charges or get them dismissed, we can usually still find ways to have them substantially reduced. Get in touch today to learn more.

Our Attorneys

Father-son attorneys Patrick H. Tate and Patrick L. Tate bring nearly 50 years of combined legal experience. As a military veteran, the elder Tate focuses on SSDI cases, while his son helps clients navigate probate law and misdemeanor criminal defense cases. Reach out today to learn more.
