After the shocking discovery that my wife and I were being investigated for mortgage fraud, we began an extensive search for the best federal defense attorneys in the country. Thankfully, our search lead us to Mr. Page Pate, who we found to be very professional and an excellent communicator who gave us straight and honest answers. We had no doubt that Mr. Pate was the best attorney to represent us and lead us through this crisis. Mr. Pate and his legal team took immediate action gathering information, researching our documents and within a very short period of time they found numerous documents and evidence to prove our innocence. Mr. Pate and his team then took fast action, presenting this evidence and their findings to the prosecutor, who after review, halted the investigation. Mr. Pates legal intellect and sound guidance was crucial in bringing this horrible event to a quick close. I cannot tell you how happy my wife and I are that we found and hired Page Pate. he is an attorney who is dedicated to delivering outstanding results for his clients. We give Mr. Pate and his firm our highest recommendation!

Page Pate and his partner Jess Johnson are top notch! Both are brilliant attorneys with incredible integrity. Page represented me in a successful 5 year long Whistle-blower False Claims Act Case pertaining to a Customs Fraud scheme carried out by Bassett Mirror Company, Z Gallerie and Macys. I had contacted other Whistleblower attorneys in Birmingham and Nashville prior to finding him. Those firms were quick to boast about their Qui Tam knowledge and successes, then told me my case would be too difficult to try and chances would be slim that the DOJ would take the case. I do believe they wrote me off as a dumb blonde who didn’t know what she was talking about.. Then I received a return phone call from Page Pate whom I had emailed just like the others with the details surrounding my claim. Despite his busy schedule and prestigious reputation as one of the best Federal Trial Lawyers in the US, he was unbelievably polite, respectful and took the time to listen, explain the process in it’s entirety and answer any questions. Page saw the potential of my case where the others didn’t. He and Jess worked very long hours preparing the claim, researching, making phone calls and attending meetings with me to assist the DOJ, Homeland, CBP, Commerce Department, IRS and various other agents. Page remained totally engaged with the government and myself throughout the 5 years it took the Government to settle with 2 of the 3 defendants for a total of $25M. Being a Whistle-blower is not easy, especially while the case is under seal. It’s an secret emotional roller coaster ride and no one can know you bought a ticket to ride! Despite my own ups and downs, Page and Jess got me thru it and I never felt “abandoned” throughout the process. $4.3 Million Dollars later, I am still thanking God every day for Page Pate and Jess Johnson and their belief in me and their ability to make a $25M case out of what other expert Qui Tam attorneys saw as impossible.

In 2017 my brother had recently got arrested facing some very serious Federal charges for the second time (He previously served 10 years in Federal Prison). We knew we had to act fast and get him the best defense lawyer or else he will end up facing a very long time away. After extensive online research we were set with Mr. Pate’s Firm. We knew that my brother’s life and future were at stake and we needed to make the right choice. We thank God everyday for choosing Mr. Pate. His professionalism, knowledge, and understanding was beyond what we could ever hope for. My brother was sentenced to LESS TIME than what he served his first time of being incarcerated when he had no priors. Mr. Pate is a true fighter for his clients. Definitely the best Criminal Defense Attorney. You couldn’t ask for a better firm and lawyer! Thank you truly Mr. Pate!

Mr. Johnson of Pate/Johnson handled my case with the utmost professionalism; filed a motion in court with a judge that was tough. Within two days of the motion the judge signed the order and the case was disposed of the way it was originally intended. The entire process was smooth and again, handled as professional as one could expect. I would recommend this law firm highly.

Pate & Johnson is representing me in a current case, and I have to say, they have been on the ball from the very beginning. They are competent, highly responsive, and have allowed me to rest easy knowing that I’m in good hands. In the future, I will be recommending Pate & Johnson to everyone I know for legal counsel and representation.

We have been clients of Mr. Pate’s for a while now. Mr. Pate has always answered any concerns we had, always up front and honest with us and I couldn’t speak any clearer when I say his job is his passion. Mr. Pate knows his clients so well he doesn’t even have to look at notes. That’s how much he knows your case AND you. If you are looking for a lawyer who will go above and beyond the call of duty Page Pate is the lawyer you seek. If you want justice Page Pate is the lawyer to contact. Mr. Johnson has communicated with us at times regarding issues as well. Mr. Pate and Mr. Johnson surpass all expectations of what a lawyer can do and has done for our family. Thank You So Much Mr. Pate.

Its not hard to explain how I feel about Page Pate and his firm. I have had a horrible experience where a prior partner of mine hooked up with one of my competitors and framed me to take responsibility for their illegal acts. The government came after me and I have gone though a few attorney’s who looked at me as a number and with $$$ signs. They did not care but pretended to care. They did not believe in me but took my money and did not put into my case the efforts that were necessary to prove my innocence. I almost gave up when I found Page Page and Pate & Johnson. Page took the time to return my calls, he and his associate/partner listened to me, took my case and in a short time frame knew more about my case than all the prior attorneys I had worked with. What I appreciate most is that Page takes my calls and talks to me and treats me like he really wants to help me vs. me just being a vehicle to make more money. He and his firm are the best and are top shelf. I am still in the middle of my litigation issues but I think I finally found the best firm to represent me. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a firm that cares and that will do what takes to win in the name of justice.

My father got cancer. He was an operator and maintenance man. He was working with asbestos and benzene and no one every told him of the dangers or gave him the right protective equipment. We look for many attorneys, until someone sent us to Attorney Pate. He spent time with my father and my family and brought a lawsuit. I wouldn’t wish asbestos or leukemia on even my worst enemy. It is a very emotional and stressful time, but at lease we have Attorney Pate and his team on our side. And maybe some justice one day.

I had property damaged by a government employee. Being in the Virgin Islands, the lack of accountability left me with a hefty repair bill. I had previously reached out to two other attorneys who seemed uninterested in my personal case, experience and troubles I had faced, and simply just wanted money. Discouraged, I gave up on the matter until a friend of mine referred Russell.
Attorney Pate was sympathetic and understanding from our first interaction and took time to explain with me the different options we had. He gave me his honest opinion and sure enough, he returned with a settlement some time later. From all of our conversations it was obvious he was passionate about laws do justice and wanted what was right for everyone.
From our first interaction I felt I could trust him and now after the case is closed I am very happy I came across Attorney Pate. An honest hard working man who went above and beyond for “the little guy”. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with him.
