Tara Helms grew up on a small farm in Blount County, Alabama. One of
her strengths as a lawyer is her ability to relate to people from all
walks of life. She received her law degree with honors from the
Cumberland School of Law in 1998, where she served on Law Review and the
National Moot Court Team and became the first lawyer in her family. Tara Helms was inducted into Cumberland’s Curia Honoris Honor Society
and the Order of Barristers upon graduation. Mrs. Helms was admitted to
the Bar of the State of Alabama in 1998.
Tara Helms believes that the most important role for a lawyer is to
follow the course of action that is best for the client. Mrs. Helms
appreciates the fact that personal injury cases can be stressful for
clients and their families. With that in mind, she welcomes the
opportunity to go to trial, but also advocates resolving cases if the
resolution is fair and promotes the well-being of the client. Tara
Helms has had a first-hand experience with a family member who has been
involved in a lawsuit after being seriously injured in a car wreck. Therefore, she has a deep understanding of the emotional impact of
dealing with a client’s injury, as well as how difficult and stressful a
personal injury case can be for clients and their families.
Tara Helms volunteers in community service projects dedicated to aiding
underprivileged and injured persons. Mrs. Helms is very active in the
Christian Women’s Job Corp (“CWJC”) which is a faith-based non-profit
organization. Mrs. Helms is married to Jimmy Helms and has two girls.
She lives with her family in Arab, Alabama.

during their time of need. She has represented hundreds of individuals
within the State of Alabama, as well as across the United States.
