About Us

Serving Gwinnett County and Beyond for Decades

Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C began with the simple but important values of community involvement and connecting with people who need help. The firm was founded in 1988 by Ethel and Tom Andersen, who met while studying at Duke University.  Both later graduated from law school at Emory University in Atlanta, and after discovering their passion for helping others, Tom and Ethel started a firm that was rooted in the community and grown by a desire to serve. Tom Tate soon joined the firm, and thirty years later Andersen, Tate & Carr is the preeminent law firm in Gwinnett County and one of the largest firms in all northeast Georgia.  

Service is truly a way of life at Andersen, Tate & Carr.  Our attorneys are leaders in the community, serving on boards for nearly every charitable organization in Gwinnett County.  But the desire to serve goes beyond just sitting on executive boards. Our employees get their hands dirty every year for Gwinnett’s Great Days of Service, and we also host a cookout for the community to raise funds for Gwinnett’s Relay for Life, the largest such event in the nation.  These are just a few examples of the ways in which our firm seeks to give back to the community which has given us so much over the years.

Of course, we also care about our clients. Our attorneys inspire confidence by listening, understanding, and providing clear legal solutions. We pride ourselves on providing every client with the personal attention that makes for a successful attorney client relationship. We value the importance of one on one consultation, the longevity of client relationships, and the opportunity to serve all our clients’ legal needs.  The vast majority of our clients become permanent members of the Andersen, Tate & Carr family.

Our roots in the local community make us unique, but our attorneys practice throughout Georgia and the United States as well. We are known for our full-service approach to legal representation.  When a client’s legal needs involve several practice areas, we are poised to quickly and comprehensively address any such needs with a team approach. And with the recent opening of our Athens area office, we are expanding our footprint in an effort to better serve our clients’ needs.

Our attorneys are leaders in their respective fields, so we can provide the expertise and personal attention you deserve. We focus our efforts and energy on a favorable outcome. While we are committed to providing a wide range of services, we combine the personal attention and dedication of a “Small Town Firm” with the expertise and sophistication of a “Downtown Firm.” Every matter has unique nuances; therefore, we focus on personalized service – and have since 1988. This is how we distinguish ourselves today.
