Attorney and Associate Development Director


Tate was born and raised in rural Oregon: he has deep roots in agriculture and an appreciation for the value and use of natural resources, having grown up on a wheat and cattle ranch. Tate received his undergraduate degree from Oregon State University, then, after a stint working back on the family ranch, attended Lewis & Clark Law School, where he earned a Certificate in Natural Resources/Environmental Law. Tate was one of WRLC’s first law clerks.


Tate is admitted to practice law in Oregon and in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon.
