Criminal Defense & Uncontested Divorce Attorney in Henderson, Tennessee


Lloyd R. Tatum

Attorney at Law

Practicing law runs in my blood. My dad was an attorney and a judge, and I had the pleasure of working alongside him for a portion of my career. I saw the difference my dad was able to make in the lives of others, and I knew I wanted to do the same. I am proud to represent the injured, the accused, and families facing life's toughest moments in Henderson and beyond. As Atticus Finch so aptly put it—"In this country, our courts are the great levelers." I strive to be a leveler, just like our justice system. Whether you've been accused of a crime, you're navigating a divorce, or you're dealing with another difficulty, I seek to ensure you're met with compassion, empathy, and fair treatment.

A Former Prosecutor's Perspective on Your Criminal Case

Perspective can be one of the most valuable tools an attorney can use when working on a criminal case. Seeing the situation at hand through another set of eyes can open up the possibilities for how to proceed. As a former prosecutor, I bring a unique perspective to the table when I'm advocating for the accused. I understand the tactics and strategies the prosecution may employ, and I know how to effectively prepare for any obstacles that may be thrown our way.

Criminal charges can be frightening to face. Your future, your freedom, and your life as you know it all hang in the balance. When the stakes are this high, put over three decades of experience and a keen legal mind on your side. I will strive to protect your best interests and advocate for justice.

When I enter a courtroom, I carry with me the knowledge and perspective gained from every previous case I handled. Each of my former clients has shaped me into the attorney I am today, and each successful case has sharpened my skills and equipped me with more tools to help you. I call on my past experiences, my legal education, and my smart instincts to provide the quality legal representation you need and deserve.
