Mediated divorce
I am so thankful for Tyler and his team. Having known Tyler before my divorce I knew his work ethic and turned to him when my ex and I decided to get divorced. We chose to mediate everything and agreed to terms prior to hiring Tyler, but we needed help with the legal side of everything. There is no way we could have drafted, agreed to and submitted our divorce without him. Tyler and his team helped us through the entire process and because of that our daughter has 2 happy parents who don't hate each other and agreed to terms that were best for her. Absolutely recommend and will be using in the future for any legal documents I might need.

Tyler was exactly who we needed to help us!
I truly am impressed at not only how professional, knowledgeable, hardworking, and thorough the Tyler Pennington law firm was but also by how they made us feel that our case was a top priority. We were very well served and we always felt like we were part of a team with powerful resources representing us. Tyler and his staff were able to secure for us a very good settlement. We will always be grateful to him and his team!
