She understood me
We definitely met under less than ideal circumstances, but nonetheless it was I'm so glad we did. When something traumatic happens to you dealing with the the most basic tasks now become a choir. The accompanied anxiety and an even embarrassment can be overwhelming. Tara understands all of that. With her you immediately feel heard. She took my case and truly fought for me while carrying all my emotions to take to ensure I wasn't overlooked or undermined. If your looking for someone to champion your case, she's the attorney you want on your side.

My Super Hero
If you are looking to put your faith in a lawyer and trust in a law firm than look no further than Tara Tighe, Esq. & TLT Legal Services. From the beginning to the conclusion of my personal injury case, she was instrumental in accessing the best PT personnel to fit my injuries & was the ultimate advocate in securing my post injury settlement. I highly recommend TLT Legal Services!!

Absolutely amazing
Going through an accident is horrible, but going through it with Ms. Tighe on your side, everything will change. Her humanity, compassion, help, guidance, care, will absolutely give you the hope and support you so desperately need. Without her, my son’s pain and suffering would have never been acknowledged. She truly is amazing!

Most patient and trustworthy attorney!
In the wrongful death case in support of my late father, Tara Tighe was patient, informative, diligent, and accessible. Tara carefully and professionally navigated family dynamics in order to best represent the interests of the beneficiaries. She also took the time to explain and walk each of us through the legal process, and helped us each to understand the legal proceedings that will follow a death in the family. Tara also used her discretion in this case to ensure that only the affected and contracted parties were notified of any updates. I appreciate all that Tara has done for me and other parties involved.
