Chaunte J.. Tate, Associate

Representing families is not just my job, it is my passion. I understand my clients are real people with real problems and I strive to support and guide them through the complex legal system to resolve those problems. I take the trust my clients put in me personally and I give myself to every case. I entered this practice area because I care deeply about children and families. Children deserve to grow up healthy and happy with the love and support of both parents and it is my commitment to advocate for their best interests. Divorce proceedings and child custody battles can be daunting and overwhelming but I will walk with my client every step of the way. I take great satisfaction in giving my clients hope for a brighter future. I am in your corner.

I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois but I am a southern bell at heart. I migrated to the South to attend North Carolina and Agricultural and Technical State University. Shortly after graduation, I moved to Atlanta to attend Emory University School of Law. While in law school, I conducted and presented research on three special topics: child welfare law and policy, child rights of incarcerated parents, and the effects of early marriage in modern America. Collectively, those experiences piqued my interest to carve out a niche to help children, families, and the community.

Prior to joining The Cherry Law Firm, I worked as a litigation associate in a mid-size firm here in the Atlanta metro area. I also clerked in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia where assisted four judges and helped solve legal issues revolved directly around the intersection of family law upon bankruptcy filings.

When I am not practicing law, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, playing softball, walking the beach in north Florida, or reading a book under a tree at Piedmont Park.
