Over a three year period Mr. Pate has successfully defended my husband of criminal charges related to drug trafficking which could have resulted in a long prison term and within the past month prevailed in a civil trial that could have resulted in the forfeiture of his airplane. Mr. Pate proved to the court that my husband was not guilty of the trafficking/conspiracy charges two years ago and earlier this month he won the civil trial, my husband's plane will be returned to him after three years in forfeiture. During all of this time Mr. Pate was always accessible, always returned phone calls promptly and always kept us informed of the status of the case. We are not local to the Atlanta area and were unfamiliar with the legal community, we feel extremely fortunate to have worked so quickly and chosen so wisely in obtaining representation. We interviewed several attorneys who were recommended but knew very early in the process that Mr. Pate would have my husband's best interests and believe in his innocence. His intelligence was reassuring and his compassion comforting to our entire family. Our sincere thanks to Page and his staff, we highly recommend him should you find yourself in an unfortunate circumstance as we did.
I am very thankful that I was able to retain attorney Page Pate. I had retained several lawyers and released them prior to retaining attorney Pate. Immediately after meeting him I knew he was the man for the job. His demeanor was calm, and warm. He had a caring personality, and I felt that my case would be handled as if it were his only case. His knowledge of federal law, and his work ethics were very professional. He was able to take my case after several other attorneys had tampered with the case for almost twelve or thirteen months, and in SIX months Mr. Pate had shined some light and hope into the case immediately. My family went through a lot with this case. The stress, the anxiety, the distrust, the finances, and the concern we had for the outcome of the case. He did not feed us with a dream, he told us up front what he was capable of doing with the case. He kept us very informed and involved with the case. He meet with us as often as we felt the need to meet with him, and returned all of our phone calls. He is a patient man and listen to all of our concerns. I made several mistakes in looking for an attorney prior to finding Mr. Pate. He came highly recommended to me, with cases he had handled with very good outcomes. After researching Mr. Pate I was truly amazed and impressed with what other clients had experienced with him as their attorney. He lived up to everything I had heard/learned about him regarding his abilities as a federal attorney. He was definitely the attorney we needed. I can not thank him enough for what he did for my family with the outcome of the case, we were very pleased. He is a Number ONE attorney in my opinion!
My family cannot speak highly enough about Pate and Johnson Law Firm. This firm worked tirelessly for two years to represent my son who was innocent on all charges. Both Page and Jess treated my son, along with the rest of my family, with dignity and respect. They always prepared us with the court process, and gave us honest answers. They truly took an interest in his case and went to trial with the best defense. Thank you Page and Jess for working diligently on his case. I would refer your office to anyone in need of the best criminal defense!
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.
I would like to express my gratitude to Page Pate for handling my case with so much care and effort. Out of three different lawyers he is the only one who could handle my case and help people understand me. He offered guidance to me in a way I could understand and helped opposites understand each other. Thank you, Mr. Pate, for being such a wonderful person and an excellent lawyer.

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.
I hired Jess Johnson of Pate & Johnson to help me with a very difficult, persistent, and arcane legal matter that had been hamstringing me for over a decade. I had hired nearly a half dozen lawyers before Mr. Johnson and most of them took my money, never returned calls, and provided worse counsel than my family and friends. Anyone who has dealt with a legal issue understands its haunting and the legal system a mass production rending machine for those without a good lawyer. Mr. Johnson provided expert counsel, clear communication, and great results.
After a shocking discovery that my wife and I were being investigated for mortgage fraud, we began an extensive search for the best 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. There was 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, and carefully researching our documents. Within a very short period of time they found significant evidence to prove our innocence. Mr. Pate and his legal team then presented this evidence and 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 thankful my wife and I are that we found and hired Page Pate to represent us. He is a hard working attorney who is dedicated to delivering outstanding results for his clients. Thank you Mr. Pate, you have our deepest gratitude and our highest recommendation!
A HUGE thank you to Tom Church and the entire staff at Pate & Johnson...they are amazing! Tom was always prompt and responsive to answer any of our questions or concerns, of which we had many. He was kind, patient and reassuring every step of the way. There were decisions to be made, and Tom provided professional, well-informed advice. Admittedly, we were nervous about going to court, but as soon as Tom arrived, he was easily able to calm our nerves and prepare us for the proceedings. We would highly recommend Pate & Johnson, and particularly Tom Church, to anyone seeking a knowledgeable, caring and professional attorney.
After being charged with 7 counts of Sexual Exploitation of a minor I found myself in need a very skilled and respected Law Firm. After speaking with several firms I chose the Pate Law Firm. Immediately after hiring the Pate Law Firm Page Pate began managing every single detail of my case as if I were his only client. Within 24 hours Mr. Pate traveled across the state to make sure he appeared at my bond hearing, this effort would secure a very difficult bond and afford me the ability to remain out of jail while he defended my case. Throughout the entire case Mr. Pate was always very up front with me. I never had to wonder where I stood or what I should expect. Mr. Pate wasn’t always able to give me the answers I wanted to hear however what he did tell me was always very accurate and honest. I was never surprised or blindsided by anything. Because of the firms extensive history I was also very impressed and lucky to have resources that in the end would ultimately assist in allowing me to remain out of prison. After a year of motions, hearings etc. Mr. Pate ended up securing a probation only verdict in a case that was seeking a minimum of 5 years in prison. If you are looking for a firm that will exhaust every effort, provide extensive resources as well as be upfront, clear and forthcoming with you I would recommend the Pate Law Firm.
I highly recommend Attorney, Page Pate. From our first meeting with him we felt confident that he was extremely knowledgeable with federal criminal law. He did an amazing job representing our son. Due to his exceptional trial skills and expertise on federal law, our son received a phenomenally reduced sentence. Page is caring, sincere and a highly skilled criminal defense attorney.
After being investigated by the Department of Homeland Security for downloading illegal images of children on a family computer, a member of the family was charged with possession and receiving illegal images of children. Eventually we found out that no images or video of any kind were found on any computer, it seemed they were charged in an over abundance of caution because they were in the childcare industry. Our first lawyer encouraged them to take a plea deal of 3 years in federal prison and a lifetime on the national sex offender registry, expecting it to be the easiest way out with minimal damages. However we were all uncomfortable with this idea especially when no evidence was found and felt they had done nothing wrong. Mr. Pate took our case and immediately proved he had far more experience in the federal court system and trial than our first lawyer. Mr. Pate gave us the confidence to take this to trial and fight. After 20 months of being on house arrest, a lost career and their reputation in the community destroyed, the case was dismissed. Working with Mr. Pate and his associate was the best decision we made involving this situation. He is confident in his ability and took a respectful and non-judgmental approach to our case. It wasn't always easy to hear what he had to say, but he told the blunt truth that we needed to hear. Preparing for trial was immensely stressful for our family, but we are grateful to have had Mr. Pate by our side. A week before trial, as we are in Mr. Pate's office and he is preparing us for trial, the prosecutor called his office and informed him the case had been dismissed. We are confident we would have won the case at trial, but we are relieved we didn't have to go through what would have been a nasty and stressful court battle. Mr. Pate knew exactly what to do and the approach to take for our defense. There was very little evidence in the case and the prosecutor knew this. The DA made the right decision to dismiss the case because he wouldn't have had a chance against Mr. Pate and his associate. The biggest lesson our family and friends have learned from this horrible situation is, Don't EVER talk to law enforcement without a lawyer present. This seems like common sense now, but at the time we felt there was nothing to hide. If you are ever in need of an attorney to represent you, Start with Mr. Pate. You will not find anyone better. Thank you Mr. Pate for taking our side and fighting for us. We cannot thank you enough.
The one word I would use to describe Page Pate would be: honest. From his interviews on CNN to working with him for many years, he has always been a very straight forward and genuine person. I would trust his team's judgement on just about anything.
Page Page handled a case for my business in April 2013. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to hire the best!
Professional and Competent. Took care of my issue quickly and to my complete satisfaction.
We contacted Mr. Pate after researching the best attorney to handle the type of charge my son was facing. Because he immediately began an independent investigation of the case (and did not wait until near the trial date), we were protected from false witnesses, poor memories, passage of time, etc. When we finally went to court 15 months later, we felt as though Mr. Pate knew our family personally and that we had his undivided attention. His knowledge of the law convinced the judge to allow some essential evidence into testimony that had a significant positive impact on our case. His demeanor in the courtroom is so professional, and yet commanding. I could not imagine taking a chance on such an important and life-changing situation with any other attorney.
Fantastic lawyers! Very professional and knowledgeable highly recommend using them!
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!
During the the process of my legal matter, Tom took the time to thoroughly explain what was needed to be done. He stated there maybe somethings we didn't like to hear but he refused to leave any detail out of his explanation. I've never experienced a better lawyer. Tom was outstanding and I would recommend Pate & Johnson Law Firm to everyone.

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 Whistleblower 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 Whistleblower is not easy, especially while the case is under seal. It's an secret emotional rollercoaster 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.
