Tymon is the best!
I don’t think I could have hired a bette attorney for my case. Tymon was incredibly informative & made the complicated legal process very clear. He was always prepared, and was always quick to reach out to me with developments. I would highly recommend Tymon Bay.

Custody battle
I could not have been any happier in hiring Tymon. My case was a difficult one and Tymon gave me confidence from the very beginning and made things easier for my family and I. I live on the west coast and Tymon made me feel as if we were in the same county. As complicated as my case was, Tymon won my case and made my family very happy. If you want reassurance, confidence, and ease of mind, I highly recommend Tymon.

Incredibly helpful!
Tymon was my lawyer for my divorce case. He was extremely helpful and flexible with the situation, and he made everything so easy for me! I would definitely go back to him if I need legal help again, and I would encourage anyone else to do so as well.

Tymon is knowledgeable and honest lawyer
I was not asked to write this review by anyone. Out of gratitude I write this review. I will summarize this review at the beginning. If you need a knowledgeable and honest lawyer, then look no further than Tymon Bay. Why do I make this statement? My journey with Tymon started on April 27, 2018, when I desperately needed quick legal advice on a Beneficiary Deed and probate estate. I was told by Jasper County appraisal district that a Beneficiary Deed for Carthage real estate in my name was not valid because of a date error. I contacted Tymon and he agreed there was a legal date problem with the deed, which meant I owned nothing. However, Tymon stated I think you may still legally own the property and I can research this for you if you want. The legal investment was minimal compared to the potential gain. At this point, I committed to have Tymon legally represent me. Three months later Tymon pleaded to the court they I legally owned the property - I will not explain the complex details. To my surprise, I was awarded 100% ownership of the property. The property was subsequently sold for $300,000. During this journey, I felt Tymon's consulting charges were fare - no overbilling. Also, I was continually amazed with Tymon's knowledge of the law and his willingness to admit when he did not know the answer but would perform research. This was an extremely unusual and complicated case involving probate and deeds.

Best attorney in the area
I first contacted Tymon to handle my divorce. He was very professional and polite. He treated me like a person with feelings and not just another client and a paycheck. Over the course of a two year grueling divorce, Tymon worked very hard to keep everything fair. He always had my best interest in mind and communicated with me regularly. Tymon is very patient and understanding. Since my divorce he has also handled another case for me and I couldn’t be happier with the result. I am very grateful for the hard work Tymon put into both of my cases. I hope I don’t ever have the need for an attorney again but if I do, I will hire Tymon again.

Valuable and inciteful one-hour consultation
On April 27, 2018, I had a one-hour telephone consultation with Tymon Bay. The topic was Beneficiary Deed and probate estate. Typically, Tymon knew the answer to my questions from his experience/memory. What truly impressed me was when Tymon did not know the answer, he stated let me check the law. He immediately did internet research with law records and cited the legal reference found. No BS – just the facts. My need for legal representation continues and Tymon is my go to lawyer.

Business Contract
Tymon wrote a business contract for us, and he did a great job. He explained things well, made several good suggestions that we had not thought of, and got the contract written on our timeline. We will use him again when our business needs a contract written.

Professional, efficient....
Mr. Bay was hired to handle a case for us. He was extremely kind, ethical, professional, and handled our case very quickly. He explained everything very clearly step by step as to what he was doing and kept us informed along the way. His price is reasonable, and for everything he did for us, was well worth hiring him for! He treated us with respect and honored our privacy with professionalism. I have a child whom is a minor during this process, Mr. Bay talked to him as an adult, he spoke TO him, not AT him which impressed me as his mother!! I would highly recommend Mr. Bay and his team to anyone needing representation. I will absolutely not go to anyone else now since dealing with Mr. Bay.

Will Contest
Tymon is a good honest Attorney. He handled a Will contest for me. He is good about answering questions and explaining how the Law works. He used visual aids to aid the Jury in understanding what had happened in a Guardianship and Conservatorship for an Adult Person with Alzheimer's Dementia. He is good at questioning Witnesses. Unlike the other Attorney for the Defendant's he used real evidence and not made up information. He had another Attorney from the firm to aid in this matter to help her get the experience she needs. He has the education and experience to fight for your rights. He is in a well established and respected law firm in this area. The other Attorneys, Paralegals and Staff treat you with respect and gratitude. Tymon is very good to work with.
