    MARK A.TATE
    Primary areas of practice:
    Personal injury, products liability,
    premises security, medical
    malpractice, legal malpractice, birth
    trauma litigation, asbestos litigation.


    Mark Tate, the founder of Tate Law
    Group, LLC, is a personal injury
    attorney dedicated to securing
    justice for each of his clients.
    Drawn to practicing law in
    Savannah by the city’s beauty and
    people, Tate has established a
    prominent practice through
    obtaining success and results for
    his clients.

    How long have you been
    practicing law? 16 years.
    Why did you become a lawyer? I
    became a lawyer to help ordinary
    people be treated fairly and
    properly by insurance companies
    and corporations.
    In your opinion, what is the
    public’s biggest misconception
    about lawyers? People do not fully
    grasp that personal injury litigation
    is funded by Plaintiffs’ counsel and
    if the case is lost, not only does the
    lawyer not get paid, but he or she
    loses all the case expenses, which
    frequently exceed six figures.
    What is your favorite law-related
    movie, and why? The Verdict with
    Paul Newman, because it quite
    accurately depicts the shenanigans
    some lawyers defending the
    medical industry engage in, as well
    as demonstrates that a jury is the
    best method to defeat deceit.
    “In order to be a good lawyer,
    one must…” Know when to act
    quickly, know when to move slowly
    and know how angry to be at
    whom and when.
