I am a health professional that has been working in a high intensity life or death environment for over 30 years . Due to the increasing severity of a medical condition , I could no longer perform in the capacity needed to do my job .
I hired Mr. Tyson to help with the daunting task of the application process necessary to file for a long term disability claim . I frankly was not healthy enough to deal with the overwhelming task of obtaining records and the necessary communications with the insurance company .
I can't tell you what a relief it was to turn it all over to Mr Tyson and his staff ---they handled everything needed to file the claim . Not only are they the utmost professionals , but they are also understanding and compassionate when dealing with a client undergoing debilitating health issues that are life changing . Their expert handling of this process was invaluable , and I think that because of their expertise I was granted my benefits on the initial submission . I have to say that Ms. Dentson , his paralegal was of great assistance , as was all if his staff . They took a tough burden off of me , and did a great job .
I highly recommend Mr. Tyson and his staff at Marcellino and Tyson !
Thank you again !

After exhausting the appeal process on my own to reinstate my Long-Term Disability benefits with the insurance carrier, I turned to Bryan Tyson for help. After our initial meeting, I knew that I had chosen the right attorney. Bryan was methodical in his approach, explained why each step was necessary, and nothing was done without discussion, my input, and approval. In less than 6 weeks from when the insurance company was served with the lawsuit, my case settled through mediation! It was during mediation that I gained even more respect for Bryan. He was confident and well-prepared; the amount of research that he did "behind the scenes" was truly impressive. Bryan is a man of integrity who, through this process, also taught me a valuable lesson of patience ... and good things really do come to those who wait.

I had a difficult ERISA case that wasn't going to net a large amount of money, but Bryan knew that I was in the right and went to bat for me without any hesitation. He walked me through the steps that were needed to be taken and was able to settle my case in a short amount of time and for more money than I would have expected. It is great to work with a lawyer that is a straight shooter and explained why we needed to follow a certain path to have the best success. I would confidently send anyone that I know to this law firm.
