When I was seven, my family's home was destroyed by a tornado at 2:22AM on 2/22/1975.  The insurer refused to pay for our home so we lived in a barn for an extended period. Ever since then I have always had a burning desire to hold insurance companies accountable. So when I decided to start a new lawfirm with my kids, 222 Injury Lawyers seemed like a natural choice for the name.  Let us know if we can help you.

| Hired Attorney
If you need an attorney, Tye Smith is your man
Tye Smith is an excellent attorney. He is prompt with his responses to your questions, explains legalese in ways that you understand and keeps you informed of the progress of your case, next steps, etc. Tye is well prepared before even entering the courtroom. He provides excellent trial preparation and when he enters the courtroom, you can be assured that you are in the best of hands. When you hire Tye, you can expect prompt and professional treatment from his entire staff. They are willing to answer your questions and respond to your communications promptly, whether the communication are via telephone or e-mail. Tye actually cared about my health and well-being throughout the process. As a victim of personal injury due to someone's negligence, Tye fought for me and my family and due to his compassion, I can say that he should be your attorney of choice during your time of need.

Wonderful
I thought Ty was an amazing lawyer. Always having great advice and always kept me in the loop regarding my case. I was very lucky that he was referred to me! I hope I never have to go through a case like mine but if I do he will be the one I call!!

Tye Smith Review
Very professional, knowledgebased of laws and insurance companies yet never treated me as lower class when I asked questions. God forbid I'm ever in a situation to need him again, but if I was, he is the ONLY attorney I would consider using - period!

Auto accident
He was very polite and understanding concerning the results of my auto accident. Never was he impatient no matter how many times I would question things.
