Tyler Carey grew up in Athens, Ohio and moved to Augusta, Georgia for college where he attended and graduated from Augusta University. From there, Tyler went to law school at Emory University in Atlanta. 

During his time at Emory, Tyler helped write an amicus curie brief to the United States Supreme Court in V.L. v. E.L on the importance of finality and stability in adoptions. The Supreme Court overturned the Alabama Supreme Court who had said a Georgia court erroneously applied Georgia adoption law to a lesbian couple. The Supreme Court thus said each state must give full faith and credit to all adoptions, regardless of sexual orientation.

During law school, Tyler clerked at The Keenan Law Firm, a plaintiff’s personal injury firm specializing in catastrophic losses from tractor-trailer wrecks, medical malpractice, premises liability, and negligent hiring.

Tyler has experience defending all sorts of crimes - from disorderly conduct, to armed robbery. Tyler's goal is to ensure his client's receive fair treatment in the criminal justice system, to look out for the best interest of the children, and to satisfy his clients.

When not practicing law, you can find Tyler on the golf course, at the movies, or spending time with his wife, two children, and chocolate lab.

One of the Greats Ones !
Tyler who is apart Strauss & Frost Law Firm did an exceptional job handling my brothers case and did everything he could for the best possible outcome! To me it wasn’t just about a pay day but that he genuinely cared about the well being and justice for his client! Tyler and his firm even check up on you months after the case and for that I’m truly grateful and wish I could do more to show my appreciation! Tyler, Strauss and Frost, definitely are recommended for all your legal needs!

Elite Professional
Mr. Carey is professional, communicative, and concise. He always made time for every question, and never treated anything we asked as trivial; he made sure of our understanding of the statutes of law, and helped with every step of the judicial process. We were always treated as if our case was as important to him as it was to us!

Great follow up
Tyler did a great job of handling the details of my divorce process. His best trait however was his consistent ability to follow up both by email and by phone with the numerous changes involved in the process. He weathered the back and forth of both parties to bring them to an agreement that met the larger goals of both sides.
