Tyler Ayres is an outstanding attorney
Tyler represented me in 2 different cases. He took the time to understand my situations and was always there to address any questions or concerns I had. Tyler treated me with respect during the whole process. The outcomes of both cases ended up favorably and I couldn't be more thankful.

What a stellar guy!! Goes above and beyond. Always available never let me or my family down. Was always there through those dark days. I recommend him to anyone that would actually like an attorney that treats you like a friend and not a time clock! Even to this day 5yrs later he or his office will reach out to check on our family. What an experience! He kept me out of jail. All charges dropped. And kept me from losing my license and job. Thank you Tyler for all you and you firm did for me and my family!!

A good choice
I was in town from out of state and was in need of an attorney that would handle my case accordingly, which he did. I didn't have much experience with the legal process, but thankfully Tyler did, and had my best interest in mind. Good attorney.

Better then Perry Mason
This is an attorney that WINS. If there is a way to go, he will find it, and if there isn't, he will help you get through with very minimum collateral damage. Tyler has outright won cases on my behalf, twice. One of those was due to an adjustment he made on the fly while we were at the stand before the judge. I'm sure a lot of attorneys are intelligent with their prep work.. But how many can execute like that? I'm proud to know Tyler, I will always refer him to my family and friends, whoever you are I would hire this man.. If you like winning.

Trouble in Paradise!!!
I have had issues ongoing with the law since 2007.........I never could get caught up. Tyler got the ball rolling so I could move on to bigger and better things in life for me. I was up to my neck in court issues for things I had done in the past that kept following me and catching up. I couldnt keep my head above water with the simplest of things. He took charge and drove 3 hours to where I was to support me in front of judges. Never complained. He cared what happened to me!!! Thank you Tyler for all you did for me. It's behind me now and I can see a future ahead of me!!!

My go to Attorney!!
I have been represented by Tyler Ayres now for the past few years. He has helped me and my family so much for issues that came up that were unexpected. I didnt have the knowledge he had on pursuing the legal help....... so he dug up the information (Im sure wasnt easy) and settled my case with exceptional results.....:) Thank you Tyler for being there for me as usual. What a great way to say thanks!!

Integrity, honesty, thinks critically, knows the law.
Mr. Ayres is an attorney who is always expanding his knowledge and skills in his area of law. I am continuously impressed at the lengths he goes to in making sure his clients are treated fairly and equitably. I highly recommend his services.
Posted by Dave | December 11, 2014
YES...there is such a thing as an honest attorney!!!
He cares. Thats all that really I need to say. Tyler under promises and under delivers. His concern for his clients is unmatched. I have used him for several legal matters and will continue to use him because I know he truly cares about my well being.

2nd DUI Found a personable Lawyer who treated me with respect.
Unfortunately I have had some troubles in my past that have required a Lawyer & my past experiences were much like the stigma that Lawyers have earned themselves. Their reviews are nothing like the one I am going to leave today for my Lawyer, Tyler Ayres. Tyler Ayres is the one in ten thousand who is actually trying to help you. Tyler helped me with a DUI charge which was actually my second DUI. I knew I had broken the law, could have hurt or killed someone behind the wheel. I felt like I was a piece of junk, a real screw up. The first thing Tyler did was treat me with respect even though I screwed up & felt like a screw up. He talked to me about getting the right kind of help, not just whatever the Court would order, but Tyler saw value in me & wanted me to see that same value. That was huge. Tyler did represent me & very well. He told the Judge the areas I am working on & where I was getting help. I received a greatly reduced fine & no jail time, on a second DUI, that is unheard of. I listened to many horror stories of what happens after a second DUI. If it was not for Tyler Ayres seeing the value in me, setting me on a path to recovery & self love & seeing the value in myself, I am sure the Judge would not have seen the value in me & I really could have been put through the ringers. The Judge could see I was on a good path & he was right, I have been sober & finding my self worth ever since. I never thought I would hear or especially say this is the same sentence... "I have found a Lawyer who is truly a good man" Tyler Ayres is a Great Lawyer & a very good guy! I have spoke with him a couple times since & given him updates of how well I am doing & just give him an update. Thank you Tyler, for seeing the value in me & helping me find it myself.

Did a very dumb thing.
I did a very dumb thing, and broke the law. I called on Tyler to help me out with my situation. He not only is a professional but he cares about his clients. Treats them like family not criminals. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs his services. Class act.

Current client

He is by far the best and most honest lawyer I have dealt with in the last 18 years. Now by the best I mean he WILL give your case everything he can for the most fair out come. .and by honest I mean he WILL do what he says he will. If you are ever in need of someone you can trust when it comes to your FREEDOM Tyler is the man to call.

Knowledge, skill, experience, and results with a personal touch.
With my past experiences with attorneys I usually spoke to their assistant or receptionist much more than I spoke with the attorney. When the bill came the fee seemed much higher than the value I received. This was not the case with Mr. Ayers, I did not always speak to him directly but I new that he was personally involved in my case by the results I obtained and by a personally phone call by him to insure my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered. Ayres Law Firm is has saved me far more money than I have ever paid them.

Ayres Law Firm
Tyler sheds the preconception that attorneys are greedy con artists. The Ayers Law Firm will settle for nothing less than an aggressive and fair defense for his clients. They were able to bring the truth to light and in doing so I kept my freedom. Tyler and his team stuck through it with me until the end and the results could not have been better. Despite me being a "high maintenence" individual they were always helpful, honest and responsive. I could not be any happier and I think of the Ayers team everyday.

Miracle DUI Attorney in Utah
My son was represented by a public defender who did not show up in court and who ignored several of my messages while my son was incarcerated with a $2500 bond for a failure to appear while being represented by the public defender. I had lost hope when my family friends and I met with Attorney Ayres. The first question he asked was "Where is your son? He has to come home" ! In three days my son was home released on his recognizance. Such unmatched parental love in an attorney combined with interest in the human being and in the details of the case was an absolute miracle for me!

Best utah attorney
Tyler ayres is a Awesome trust worthy attorney! The fact that he offered me free advice during his busy day speaks volumes of his charater. A true good guy! If I EVER need to hire a attorney he is the guy!

Honest representation
Tyler is honest to a fault. To a lot of lawyers, that just means not telling an absolute lie. He tries to adhere to the truth not just in the words but in the proportionality of the varied interests involved. Don't try to hire him if you're just trying a scam to get rich, but if you have a legitimate claim that you need to be made whole, Tyler is your guy. He has advised me on several business matters and I have found his advice of much greater value than he charged me. He has also tried to save me money by advising me what I could get done on my own.
