​After law school, Tyler was a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Bernice Bouie Donald, who was then a United States District Judge for the Western District of Tennessee and who now sits on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. He also taught at the University of Memphis School of Law and served two years as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Walter C.

Great lawyer and helpful at all times
Mr. Brooks has helped me with multiple legal issues and responded quickly to any questions I had. Working with him is a pleasure as he explains each step along the way or why certain actions have to be taken.

Thank you.
Tyler explained that my case was not within his scope of practice but he gave me several referrals along with contact information. This really sped up my search.

Prompt Lawyer
I have consulted Mr. Brooks regarding a business agreement dispute. He made very sure to get all the details he needed to establish first if it was right for him without charging a penny. He spared no effort in providing me with an IP lawyer when he realized it wasn't his practice area. Mr. Brooks is the type of lawyers that would help a person in the time of need regardless what day or time of the week it is. Thank you Mr Brooks.
