Passion, Responsible, Caring
Mr tyler, was on top of my case from the start. He was very professional and obviously Knows the law and how to debate legally. But besides him knowing not what to say or what to say, I really enjoyed how he listened to me and believed me, even when it felt the whole world was against me. He was smart and tactical, using the officers own foolish wording against them. Pressuring questions and forcing responses from the deputies that they did not want to answer. He's approach was perfect, smart, and planned always called made sure i was in the loop. Thank you Mr tyler, for justice

Outstanding A++ Representation
Derek M. Tyler was the absolute **best choice we could have made** for our case. From the initial phone call to the final time we shook hands, Derek was professional, compassionate, understanding, knowledgeable and reassuring. He always told us the truth, yet made us feel confident. Derek's experience in his field and diligence with our case was fantastic. For anyone looking to have an attorney treat them like family, we would point you to Derek Tyler. If any of our family members or friends ever need help, we will be recommending Derek - for sure. We cannot thank you enough, Derek. Great job from beginning to end. We appreciate it ALL. A++

Professional attorney who cares
We hired Mr. Derek Tyler to represent my fiancé for a traffic ticket resulting in injuries to us. He was always in contact with us. He went above and beyond to help us understand the process. He went for a Not Guilty verdict and accomplished that. He didn't just want case dismissed. He believed in us and we believed in him. I would highly recommend Mr. Tyler for your attorney!

If you need a lawyer Mr. Tyler is your guy
Mr. Tyler took my case and made me feel like it was of the utmost priority to him. He had mulitple ideas to fight it and fight it he did. He always did what he said he would and returned calls in a prompt manner. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome in my situation and it was all because of Mr. Tyler. Thank you so much!

I was falsely accused of something that I did not do by some very vicious people. This started a two year investigation by the Sheriff's Department. After two years Derek Tyler got on the case and stopped the investigation cold in its tracks. The investigation vanished into thin air where it belonged. Derek is a great lawyer who really cares about his clients.
