About Nelson Tyrone

About me

Nelson Tyrone devotes his practice to representing people who have been seriously injured and to representing families who have lost a loved as a result of another’s negligence.

Background

Mr. Tyrone is a graduate of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia (CLA&S 1992) and received his law degree (with honors) from the University Of Georgia School Of Law (1998). Mr. Tyrone first practiced as an associate attorney with Atlanta’s pre-eminent criminal defense law firm, Garland, Samuel & Loeb, P.C. While an attorney with Garland, Samuel & Loeb, Mr. Tyrone represented clients in a variety of major felony and white collar criminal defense work in both state and federal courts and received acquittals from juries in a variety of major felony criminal prosecutions.   Among the cases he was involved in were the defense of Baltimore Ravens defensive back Ray Lewis and the defense of the United States Government's prosecution of the Gold Club in Atlanta, Georgia. After leaving Garland, Samuel & Loeb, P.C. he worked for Butler, Wooten P.C. in Atlanta and Columbus, Georgia working primarily in the areas of medical malpractice, aviation and auto products liability work.

Since 2002 Mr. Tyrone has practiced as Nelson O. Tyrone P.C. – representing people who have been severely injured and families who have lost a loved one as a result of a Defendant’s negligence. He is very selective about the cases he is willing to take on as the time and effort involved with each client allows him to only represent a few clients at one time.   He is often brought in to cases by other attorneys to lead the trial of their client’s cases. He prepares every case for trial – believing that is the best way to obtain full justice for his clients.

He has represented individuals in thirty-seven (37) jury trials in state and federal courts in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, Nebraska, Mississippi, Ohio and New York.
