Any legal problem can seem overwhelming. At Tatum & Tatum in Henderson, you have access to a local lawyer who has more than 30 years of experience solving legal problems. I understand that no legal problem occurs in a vacuum. For that reason, I take the time to get to know clients as real people facing a legal challenge, not just another file number. Crafting solutions to legal issues is best handled in context. To that end, I work with clients every step of the way to personal results while standing strong to protect the rights of my clients.
An Experienced, Versatile Lawyer You Can Trust
Since earning my law degree and passing the Tennessee Bar in 1985, I have had a busy, fulfilling career. Serious cases and complex problems are no stranger to me, as my work has included intensely contested divorces to death penalty trials, criminal appeals and other litigation in federal court.
Continuing A Family Tradition Of Dedicated Legal Work
I spent a year as a prosecutor in Henderson County before entering private practice. My approach to the law is modeled on figures such as Abraham Lincoln and the literary hero Atticus Finch of To Kill a Mockingbird. My father, F. Lloyd Tatum, was a renowned Tennessee lawyer and longstanding Court of Appeals judge — known to some as the criminal defense attorney for Buford Pusser, a legendary 1960s law officer made famous in the Walking Tall movies.
Across my practice areas, a reputation for personal service, hard work and vigorous protection of my clients' rights has brought many referrals from attorneys and people I have helped. In 2009, attorney Lloyd R. Tatum was selected by his peers for inclusion on 2009 Mid-South list of Super Lawyers* in Tennessee. He was also selected as one of the best lawyers in Tennessee in 2005 and included on the list of the Top 101 Lawyers in Tennessee in 2004.
