In 1999, Jeanne T. Tate started her own law firm after many successful and distinguished years at Shackleford, Farrior, Stallings & Evans, P.A., where she became one of the firm’s first female partners in the firm’s 90-year history, and Hill Ward Henderson, P.A., where she was the firm’s first female partner.
Jeanne’s goal was to create a law firm dedicated solely to the practice of adoption law, so she could continue the work she had done in the field since the early 1980s. From the beginning, the firm and its clients have been supported by a group of paralegals and legal assistants with an exceptional level of competency and professionalism.
The firm has long been devoted to pro bono service. The firm handles most of the indigent adoption related cases from Bay Area Volunteer Legal Services (“BAVLP”). Members of the law firm serve as mentors to BAVLP’s pro bono attorneys and to Bay Area Legal Services’ attorneys and staff.
