Top tax lawyer
Tyler has represented me in a Dispute with the IRS. He has been honest, brilliant, reliable, and one of the few attorneys who always returns phone calls. He is an outstanding tax lawyer.

Help with "keeping inherited family cottage"
I found Tyler via a NOLO book "Saving the Family Cottage." He was very responsive & extremely helpful. I would recommend him highly.

Responsive, listens and cost effective
I recently completed my divorce with Tyler on my side. Tyler was very responsive, knowledgeable (and where he himself had questions he would seek other opinions within the firm) and did not nickel and dime me to death. We ended up going to court after failed mediations, and he succeeded to settle for a lesser amount of monthly maintenance that I would pay, than what was offered at mediation. After completion I come to find out he was 1/2 the cost of my ex-spouses attorney and twice as effective.

Great Divorce Attorney
Tyler was a great help to me for my divorce. He handled all situations with professionalism. When it comes down to personality and understanding, he was great. His response time with any issues I had was almost instantaneous. I would recommend Tyler to anyone.

A Fair & Honest Attorney!
Could not have been more please with dealing with Tyler on my tax dilemma. The IRS sent me a back tax notice of $122,000 from my fathers Estate Sale. Within six weeks, Tyler had it resolved with no money due to the IRS. He is honest, fair and most of all no dollar signs in his eyes when dealing with an attorney. Great Job, Gary

Knowledgable, ethical and affordable
After interviewing 3 other lawyers in town, I hired Tyler for my divorce and I'm so glad that I did. Tyler was extremely knowledgeable on divorce and financial matters. In addition, he kept me sane when I really wasn't at times. Tyler consistently reminded me to "play nice", when that was the last thing I wanted to do. But he was able to show me how it made sense financially to keep things amicable with my ex-husband. One of the things I most appreciated is that Tyler answered my emails almost immediately and very thoroughly. Tyler also was able to recognize when something was beyond his area of expertise, and connected me with a specialist for my case. Divorce is never easy, but with Tyler and Culver's help, I was able to come out ahead financially and emotionally.

Amazing knowledge and understanding of finances!
Tyler was part of my divorce team and without him I would have been lost. His knowledge of tax and financial law relating to divorce was invaluable. He is great at responding to emails and phone calls and keeping me up to date with my case. Tyler was incredibly proactive in keeping my case on track and very good at keeping my ex from taking advantage of me financially. He has handled some retirement finances for me as well as prepared a new will and a trust for me so that my family is taken care.

Very knowledgable, ethical, professional
Tyler is always responsive to inquires and he is extremely knowledgable on a diverse array of legal subjects. I have come to rely upon Tyler's solid tax and business guidance.

Honorable and Reliable
I am in a business that requires me to work with several attorneys in other states, and while most of those attorneys have neglected me and been inconsiderate, Tyler Murray has been the exact opposite. Through every hardship I have faced Tyler has been extremely helpful, honorable, considerate, and reliable. One of the greatest things about working with Tyler is that he answers my questions immediately, honestly, and thoroughly. He is very knowledgeable in many areas of law. In fact, he has often even given me invaluable advice in areas of business that were unrelated to the reason why I even hired him. Whenever I need legal advice on anything Tyler is my first, quickest, and by far my best resource. And when I meet with him in person he goes above and beyond to thoroughly address any concerns I can even think of. In addition, Tyler is also very fair about the rates he charges. Instead of demanding a huge amount upfront, Tyler discussed with me what I could afford beforehand and made a generous effort to keep his costs well within my limit. And since at the time I was stuggling financially, I greatly appreciated that. I have worked with numerous attorneys in my career but none of them have been nearly as patient, understanding, and considerate as Tyler. I would recommend him to any of my friends as well as anyone who needs a great attorney. My only regret is that there are not more attorneys out there like him.

Always there for me
Tyler has represented me personally and assisted me with many issues for my business, including business incorporation, tax advising, and trademark issues. Tyler’s guidance has been very beneficial to my business. Furthermore, Tyler’s responsiveness is second to none; I am always impressed with his ability to return calls and emails expediently. In the courtroom, Tyler presents himself with confidence. I was impressed with how thorough Tyler was in explaining the process, my options and how he was prepared to defend me. Tyler’s hard work won my case, I am very pleased with his services. I trust Tyler with all my legal issues and I am confident that Tyler will be my attorney for years to come. I recommend Tyler to anyone looking for an attorney, you will be very satisfied with the service you receive.
