Attorneys & Staff

Roberts Tate, LLC is a litigation boutique specializing in business litigation and consulting, complex litigation, construction litigation, ad valorem tax litigation, real property litigation, valuation litigation, and internal corporate investigations. The focus of Roberts Tate is simple - to provide sophisticated counsel and representation to our clients with a focus on securing favorable results as quickly as possible. The attorneys at Roberts Tate --- James L. "Jay" Roberts, IV, Jason M. Tate, Laura P. Roberts and Lacey Houghton --- have impeccable qualifications which enable us to provide the quality of representation generally associated with a larger firm, but with the more personalized and efficient operations of a smaller firm. This results in high quality and cost-effective counsel to our clients. Our slogan defines who we are and what we do "Client Focused. Result Driven."

The attorneys at Roberts Tate have a proven track record of success. All of the attorneys at Roberts Tate graduated with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law. After graduation in 2001, Jay clerked for the Honorable Anthony A. Alaimo in United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia before going on to become a partner at Gilbert, Harrell, Sumerford, & Martin P.C. in Brunswick, Georgia. Jason, on the other hand, began his career working in the Atlanta office of a large regional law firm before being appointed as an Assistant United States Attorney with the Department of Justice assigned to the Organized Drug Enforcement Task Force ("OCEDFT") in the Southern District of Georgia and then returning to private practice with Gilbert, Harrell, Sumerford, & Martin P.C. Laura worked at the Brunswick law firm of Brown, Readdick, Bumgartner, Carter, Strickland and Watkins, LLC for ten years practicing and successfully trying cases and securing judgments for her clients in a variety of areas including insurance defense, torts, employment law, civil rights, contract disputes and environmental litigation. Laura was named as one of Georgia's Legal Elite in the area of Family Law by Georgia Trend Magazine for 2012. Jay was named as a Super Lawyer in 2009-2011 and 2014-2016, as was Jason in 2010 - 2015.

It is by this standard that all attorneys at Roberts Tate are measured.
