She’s the best!!!
I have worked in the legal system over half my life, but when the tables turned and I needed representation, she was right by my side! She and her paralegal walked me through the toughest time of my life!

Phenomenal Attorney
My experience with Hyder law was amazing from the start. I could tell that Ms. Hyder was a very knowledgeable woman who was ambitious and passionate about her job. I knew I was in the right hands for my divorce case with a minor child. Ms. Hyder responded quickly for any questions that I had in a timely manner and broke down anything that I didn't understand. She's an honest woman who will tell you what you need to hear versus what you want to hear. Ms. Hyder and her team did an amazing job with ensuring that I understood all facets of the process. she was very professional and her team handled my case with care and urgency. they took the time to understand my concerns and made sure to follow up frequently. overall my experience with Hyder Law was amazing. I would highly recommend for anyone who needs help.

Ms. Hyder is a suburb lawyer that clearly states the facts and lays out all the recommendations for your specific case. She highlights all the critical details required in order to push through the course of action that is best suited for your situation. She consistently updates your case with relevant information and keeps you informed throughout the whole process. She has assisted me with all my questions and research I needed and helped me into a program designed for me, as a Veteran, to receive all the necessary assistance I require. I would absolutely recommend Ms. Hyder for any case.

Excellent attorney
Our experience with Hyder Law was positive from the first moment we consulted her. Ms Hyder was attentive, through, and helpful through our difficult time. She knows the law inside and out. She always responded quickly and effectively with any questions or issues as the arose. She fought for my child just as she would her own. I highly recommend Hyder Law.

The Best!!!!
Upon our initial consultation with Ms. Hyder she was hired. In my family's opinion she took our case personally and fought hard every time we were in the court room. Ms. Hyder is professional and knows Tennesee law, she was great to work with and got everything we asked for in our case. If there is someone looking for someone who is going to give of themselves and work hard for you then you have found that person in Colleen Hyder.

Have and Will hire again
Colleen Hyder to me is a woman of integrity, dedication, and motivation. She is an experienced professional, who has an exceptional knowledge of the law. Her immaculate ethics and unparalleled work ethic makes her an outstanding attorney who is capable, thorough, and hardworking. She is straightforward and will not tell you what you want to hear, but is informative on what you need to know. I highly recommend her, and feel fortunate to have hired such a family oriented and compassionate attorney such as herself.

I rest assured that my case is in the hands of a reliable and concerned law firm. Her consideration for keeping me informed on the steps accomplished, suggested actions available and information yet to be attained has been a welcome relief.

Shes a pitbull!
Ms. Hyder , is so caring! She took payments. She responded to every call personally. She went above and beyond, actually going to the police and helping file papers.

I would recommend Colleen Hyder to anyone!!
My name is Pat Jones and I have used Colleen Hyder twice already and would recommend her and will use her again if the neeed arises. My first matter was a financial matter. Not only did she take the time to explain to me all the ins and outs regarding my particular situation she never once made me feel as if i was being judged or looked down upon. She was very helpful in giving me advice, informing me of my rights and the laws and what steps would be necessary to remedy the situation. The second time I went to her it was a matter in a different state where she was not licensed. Although it was something she could not help me on, she referred me to another lawyer who was qualified in that state and then told me of the laws in TN to have general information of possible outcomes to prepare me for when I met with the other lawyer. She is on time for her appointments, looks you directly in the eye and actually listens and helps. Although I hope to not have another situation that needs the services of a lawyer I would most certainly go straight to Colleen Hyder again!

I fired her and she still failed
I have multiple emails from my ex’s attorney that show he took me to court many times bc she failed to turn over or file documents I had given her for months. She did not return my calls or emails and straight out lied to me. I would not trust her especially if you are a woman.
