Great Lawyer
Tyler turned a felony possession and domestic assault & battery into something anyone would be lucky to get. He kept me informed throughout the process. He also explained the options and possibilities and respected my choices. He is a professional, skilled and knowledgeable attorney.

We could not be more pleased
We talked at length before hiring Tyler (Christians Law, PLLC) about whether we wanted to save money and do the immigration process by ourselves, or pay an attorney. We concluded that the process was so stressful and complicated that it would be really nice to have somebody who knew the law and the intricacies of the system. We got very lucky because we found Tyler on our first attempt. At that point we weren't even worried about what kind of person they might be as long as they could do the work. But any stress we ever had about what to do or uncertainties in the process was quickly relieved by Tyler explaining how things work in a very patient way. The firm is made up of kind people. But also ethically and professionally they always excelled in their work. Unfortunately, we don't need them anymore because we have done everything we wanted to do. But they are worth knowing and worth hiring.

We had the best experience with Tyler Christian. He helped the doctor to get his designation as a Civil Surgeon for the USCIS back. Tyler was always very responsive, knowledgeable and helpful with a positive attitude. Also, the price was very reasonable. We highly recommend Tyler Christian and his team.

Great lawyer, respectful and detailed oriented. Made our case so much less stressful!
Tyler helped us from the start with getting our paperwork in order, through the interview process and finally received my wife's green card. I have known him for a long time and had total confidence in him guiding us through this difficult process. He was always there to answer our questions and always helped us stay positive. I would refer my friends and family to him in a heartbeat, thanks for everything Tyler!

awesome attorney
Tyler is the best attorney I have ever hired. He is knowledgeable, approachable, and great to work with. He is empathetic with you and works hard on your case and will try to help you in anyway he can. He took the time to explain to me the issues and potential solutions in an easy to understand manner, complete with a timeline, and potential outcome with plan of action with regular updates after each timeline. I am glad to have hired him.

Excellent attorney for complicated cases
I hired Tyler for my adjustment of status interview. We were quite close to the interview date and had a complicated charge against me in my home country. Being a detail-oriented person, Tyler quickly understood the charge and came up with a good defense plan in case needed. While Tyler calmed us down and prepared us very well for the case, he was also up front on the potential of waiting up to a year to get approved; In the end, our interview went quite well. Approximately, 3 weeks after the interview, we received a notice stating that our case approved without any issues. His flat fee is also quite reasonable. i strongly recommend him for anyone in need of such a service.

Great service
I am so happy I hired Tyler. Not only is he intelligent and expert in immigration topics, he is also a very kind and wonderful person. He went above and beyond to deeply understand my case, provided a detailed analysis and communicated information until I understood them. My case is resolved sooner than expected because of his attention to detail paperwork. I want to thank him for his service.

Very professional, always ready to assist. Me and my wife hired Tyler for my permanent residency through marriage. Tyler was in top of everything, he prepared and predicted the case very accurately. Based on my experience and the clarity he had on everything I highly recommend him.

Smooth Sailing with Tyler
Tyler helped my husband and me navigate through the complex immigration process of adjusting my husband's status and obtaining his permanent residency. Tyler guided us through all of the forms, and he was always very patient and responsive with all of my questions (I had a lot). Honestly, he made an infamously nightmarish process enjoyable, and we were shocked at how fast we received my husband's green card! The most rewarding aspect of hiring Tyler was our ability to breathe, not worry, knowing that our case was in good hands.

J1 to F1 status
Mr. Tyler Christians is a honest, trustworthy and a reliable lawyer. A professional one who is going to guide you in your case doing his best. He’s fair and I highly recommend him because he not only is a great attorney but he also cares about people. I needed help providing evidences to the immigration office when transitioning to a F1 status and he gave me the necessary legal support to represent my case. A week ago I got my status approved, I am really thankful for Mr. Christians and all his legal help.

A good dependable attorney and counselor
I approached Mr. Tyler 2 months ago regarding a legal 'situation' I was/am in. Still have an active engagement with him. Like anyone facing a possible legal issue, I was depressed, scared to the extreme, apologetic, mopey and had lost my mind. And on top, the fear of expenses and legal costs. I confided my case into Mr. Tyler and must frankly say talking to him alone each time was a big help to my fragile state of mind. His objective assessment and analysis greatly helped me see beyond the smoke and fog and get some clarity. Initially I was a bit apprehensive as he primarily dealt with immigration law and my case was more on the criminal side, but after talking to him the first times, I got a feeling his knowledge and clarity on all areas was awesome and helpful. Very approachable over email/phone/in person, he came across to me as with good analysis, trustworthy, firm communication. Money wise too, I felt he was very flexible in his rate quotes and understood his client's ability and means and was very supportive, dependable If you are an ordinarily person like me with limited legal knowledge, i 'd suggest to consult/hire him without a doubt.

If your life depends on it, depend on Mr. Christians!
I am the owner of an educational institution and often come in contact with students that are in desperate need of good legal representation. At times, their lives depend on the outcome, as it did with my student. Mr. Christians was incredibly sincere in all of his interactions with us and very thorough in all of his instructions and explanations. He always gave my student the ability to make decisions with full knowledge and understanding of the legal ramifications. He made every attempt to understand and respect her culture and how it impacted her situation. He kept us informed on a regular basis and assured my student often when the fear over the possible outcomes would consume her. He would come to my office to meet with her when she was in school so she would not endanger her non-immigrant status. He was very responsive and very experienced and did not waste his time or ours. When certain filings did not result in the outcome for which we had hoped, Mr. Christians was already prepared to move forward with the next option available to my student for remaining safe while legally residing in the U.S. His efforts, his support, and his experience all resulted in her receiving her legal permanent residency and avoiding the grim fate that awaited her should she have been forced to return home. Mr. Christians, by my account, saved her life. At the very least, he gave her and her children the possibility of a bright future. He did his job and much more. If you are in need of sincere, informed, and reliable representation, I can not recommend any one more capable and ready to provide that for you than Mr. Christians.

Non-Profit Director
In my career, I advocate on behalf of international refugees and asylum seekers to help them understand and employ their legal rights and responsibilities as new comers to the United States. I have worked with Tyler Christians for approximately 3 years on a number of occasions to help process Green Card applications, Asylum cases, advise on criminal allegations and juvenile affairs. He is not only acutely knowledgable of the written law, but equally as important, he knows how to navigate how the law is interpreted and applied by each character within the legal context in which he is working ( local law enforcement, federal agents, DA's, judges, trends and policies, etc). He knows what is happening on a policy level as well as what is happening on the ground. Along with his technical ability, he has demonstrated the upmost integrity in his personal vision and character. He listens well, asks good clarifying questions, is resourceful and communicates his legal strategy in a clear and concise manner. He is organized, persistent and practical, and works well under pressure. He has treated each of my cases with the same due diligence whether complicated or simple. Working in the non-profit sector, my budget is limited for both me and my clients. Tyler is one of the few lawyers I have worked with who deliver a premium experience even on a budget. With most lawyers, you get what you pay for and when you don't have a lot you get less time and thoughtfulness towards your case, because at the end of the day its about the money. Tyler is different. When he takes a case with me or one of my people at an agreed price, he is committed to the task of providing the best legal service and concern he possibly can and nothing less. If he is not able to deliver his personal best with excellence, he will let me know up front and spare both of us the disappointment. He doesn't have a problem saying yes, and he doesn't have a problem saying no. That is so refreshing this world! I find this a rare trait working with attorneys, but working with Tyler has broken the stereotype that "all lawyers are the same", they are not. I was fortunate to find an attorney who is good at their job and still cares about people. This has been my experience with Tyler Christians. I would highly recommend him.

Mr. Tyler Christians is an amazing lawyer! Reliable and trustworthy. I’m beyond grateful to have found him and have had him represent me in my time of need with my immigration situation. Mr. Tyler is very passionate about his job, 100% dedicated to the client and if needed with no doubt, he will always go beyond! always surpassing your expectations!! He sure is not your typical lawyer.. He cares extremely about his client. He will ALWAYS be responsive & with certainty make sure you’re aware & comprehensive of everything that is occurring with your case. The one thing I loved the most about Mr. Tyler is that he is very straightforward. You will definitely not regret the experience/service you will be provided by him. I highly recommend him! He was a total blessing in my life! The outcome of my immigration case was a total success, I received my green card in less than a year, just like he had stated.
