Thankful is an understament
Words cannot express how thankful I am to Ty. Owning a small business is hard enough but when I had a suit come up and I was put in contact with Ty we instantly hit it off. He's a no games kind of guy but at the same time has compassion to the situation. When it was time to get down to business with settlement Ty was on point and stuck to the plan to get us in and out with as little time wasted as possible. I recommend Ty to anyone in need of an honest, hardworking, compassionate attorney. He's the best!
