Brian Steed Tatum, the founding partner of Tatum Law Firm, worked
for the Atlanta, Georgia, and Raleigh, North Carolina, offices of Morris,
Schneider & Prior, LLC in the litigation department. After managing a branch
office and after obtaining a M.B.A. from Duke University, Mr. Tatum moved
to Charlotte, North Carolina, to start the Tatum Law Firm. Observing that
when a law firm gets big, customer service starts to become a second
priority, Mr. Tatum started the Tatum Law Firm to serve the needs of clients
who still desire and deserve excellent customer service.
