Social security disability case
Best attorney ever. She took every call and returned every email. Explained everything in a manor in which I could understand. Sat down with me 2 weeks before my social security hearing and went thru medical records with and provided honest feedback. She wrote a brief for the judge the day of my hearing. She was well organized and ready to fight for me. I was made to feel like I was the most important person. Love her spunk and drive along with her big heart. Thanks for the wonderful job you did for me Ann. You will never be forgotten. Susan Dole

I’ve hired Ann Tycer to represent me in my fight for disability benefits after finding many recommendations for her, but even those did not do justice to her professionalism she gracefully applies while making you feel like a beloved family member. She has a way of connecting on a human level, you do not feel like just a client but a person she truly wants to help. She has taken the anxiety out of this difficult venture and that alone places her at 100 stars in my book!

The AMAZING Ms. Ann Tycer
Ms. Tycer was and still is a Godsend to me. She endured with Grace and total Professionalism, a long, 3 year social security disability battle by my side, while providing accurate information, timely submissions, wisdom and positive support. She cared for me and about me as if I was one of her very own Family Members. Her kindness and her sincerity is genuine...I'll NEVER forget her or her permanent impact on my life. She's IS a WINNER who naturally emits Style and Class!! Brava Ann, Brava. Job exceptionally well done!!! Thank you so much once again for doing what you were born to do. Helping those unable to help themselves in the SSA Disability arena. Sincerely and with Much Respect, Larnetta

Ann Douglas Tycer (June 2017)
Ann D. Tycer: Mrs. Ann did a tremendous job representing my disability case. She treated me and my wife like part of her family and gave us both the confidence to easily present the case. She led us through the legal maze that resulted in a winning disability claim. She even turned my verbal missteps into a positive. I am sure without her legal expertise the outcome would not have been positive. Thank you so much Mrs. Ann David

Honest, Thorough and Caring
I worked with Ann in the past year and the she was so nice. The service she provided was above and beyond what I expected. She took the time to explain things to me. She has so much experience that she was able to tell me about past situations where she helped clients and what the outcome was. It really put me at ease. You can tell that Ann really loves her job and truly cares about her clients. I would recommend Ann to anyone that I know and I would trust her to get the best possible outcome.

Thank you Ann!
Thanks to Ann Tycer, I was able to win my social security disability case before it went to a hearing. Mine was a rare win, since Trigeminal Neuralgia is not listed with social security, but Ann proved to be top notch. In addition to her professionalism, she's a very kind and caring person, which made this otherwise stressful time go on rather smoothly. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Goes Above and Beyond
Ann Tycer with Larry R. Williams Attorneys at Law is an absolute warrior when it comes to being an advocate for her clients. She represented me in obtaining my Social Security Disability benefits even when she and I initially thought it would take a miracle to be approved. Ann weathered every storm with me, and give me encouragement every step of the way. She did not falter in any process. We spent time going over records and dates and possibilities until she felt confident in going into a hearing with me. She expertly guided me through every step and scenario right up to the day of my hearing before the administrative judge. Ann is excellent at representing her clients, but she is so much more by being a true advocate of the person in need. I would highly recommend Ann Tycer with Larry R. Williams Attorneys at Law.

Couldn't be in better hands!
I received excellent care from Ann Tycer. She is compassionate and thorough and made the legal process, a potentially intimidating scenario, easy to navigate and understand. I would highly recommend her services.

Helped me when I needed guidance.
Very knowledgeable, professional and had all the answers to my question. Saved a lot of time turning to her expertise rather than trying to navigate on my own.

I am a client of Ann's. I have had her for only 2 months My first impression of her was and is a lasting one. Very understanding to your needs , and will work hard for you to get what you deserve. I went to her to file an appeal for my social security she came through in only a couple of months. She has a unique way of making you feel like family instead of a client. She is awesome to talk to and will go the extra mile if need to. Whatever it takes she'll get you there and be by your side all the way.. Couldn't have done this without her, She has been a blessing.

Look no Longer!
I have known Ann Tycer for over 15 years and in this time I have been struck by her clear personal mission to help those in need. She is a diligent student of the Law as it pertains to Social Security Disability and has been winning Social Security Benefits for her clients for 23 years. Attorney Tycer knows the system, the workers and the judges who hear these cases and has remained always in the best standing with the court system and the Bar in Middle Tennessee. Lastly, Ann raised her children in Middle Tennessee, in this community. She is not from New Jersey, Texas or California, only to fly in the day of the hearing and fly out as soon as its done. Ann has maintained a deep professional relationship with the Social Security system in Middle Tennessee for the entirety of her successful career helping us win our Social Security benefits.

I became a client of Mrs Tycer in 2013 after being denied by Social Securty twice. I was blessed to have come in contact with this sweet ,concerned ,and professional attorney.

Mrs.Ann did everything she stated she could do and I was very pleased with having her representing me on my case.I was granted a fovorable decision at my hearing.l would most defiantly recommend this great hardworking and attentive attorny to every one I know that is trying to apply for there disability .

high praises
I couldn't have asked for a better attorney to handle my daughter's disability case. She, and her colleagues as well, are superior, and I highly recommend her, and the law office. I have, in fact, recommended her to several people. I especially appreciate Ms. Tycer's efficiency, as well as her responsiveness. We were successful in securing the award, and even now, I can contact her for information that I may need. Could not have been better.
