Guardianship and Adoption Success!
Counselor Tyrell helped us through a very scary guardianship and adoption process. We had never been through anything like that before and the waters were extremely difficult to navigate as we worked to get all the necessary documents, signatures, interviews and court orders in place. Adopting a child, especially a child with which you've bonded, can be incredibly stressful and worrisome because until it is all done there is the constant fear some agent or agency may deny your application for a myriad of possible reasons! Add our unfamiliarity with the adoption process as a whole and you get the fearful, frantic couple that was us for the 3 years that it took to complete the adoption. The difficulties stemmed from the number of transactions that needed to take place between the State of Nevada, our daughter's birthplace and the current location of the birthparents which encompassed 3 different states altogether. Counselor Tyrell was very thorough and precise in providing guidance to us and helping us meet every requirement put forth by all jurisdictions/agencies involved! She was accommodating and informative EVERY step of the way. She held our hand through the entire process and was our constant rock when we would have bouts of discouragement! Her determination and concern for the success of our adoption application was clearly genuine to us. She became far more than just legal counsel. She became family to us and it's a relationship we will continue to maintain for the rest of our thankful lives! We cant say enough about her competence, drive, character, and compassion! Counselor Tyrell is everything we could have hoped for in a lawyer and in a friend affectionately known by our daughter as "Auntie Elyse"! My family greatly recommends her and the entire law firm of Trent, Tyrell & Associates!!

Adoption
The adoption of our grandchild was a very emotional and stressful time for my wife and me. We consider ourselves very fortunate that Elyse Tyrell was our attorney in this matter. We found Elyse to be not only extremely competent and professional in handling the legal aspects of our case but also very caring and compassionate during a difficult time for us. Taking into account that it was necessary for me to retire in order to stay home and care for a 7 year old child, Elyse did much of the work pro bono. I highly recommend Elyse Tyrell and would not hesitate to seek her counsel if the need should ever arise again.

Professional office and staff
I had a great experience with Mrs. Tyrell and her staff. She put together my advance directive and living will prior to the birth of my baby. She answered my questions and made me feel comfortable with decisions made. Her and her staff were efficient and timely with putting together the documents and recording them. I would definitely recommend her and her staff .

Estate planning
Elyse Tyrell was outstanding. She assisted my wife and I with our estate planning. She created out trust and put together a very professional package for us. Both she and her staff were complete professionals and explained everything throughout the process. I could not have been more pleased. I will be staying in touch with Ms. Tyrell for her assistance when I need to change or update my trust in the future. I am very happy that Elyse Tyrell was my attorney and would recommend her to anyone looking to put their affairs in order.

Outstanding Attorney
Elyse is an outstanding attorney. We hired her in 2012 to handle the settlement of my wife’s mother’s estate. Unfortunately, another beneficiary of the estate was being difficult with the settlement of the estate and the distribution of assets was subsequently delayed. Elyse stepped in to protect my wife’s rights and we were highly impressed for multiple reasons. First of all, Elyse is simply a very good attorney who knows her stuff. She is very knowledgeable in the area of probate and trust matters, and this served us well. Secondly, Elyse is tough and committed. She tenaciously followed through on what needed to be done to seek justice in this matter despite the other parties’ attempted delays and excuses; she did not let them get away with any of it. Finally, Elyse’s communication skills and responsiveness are outstanding. She always communicated clearly, very quickly, and in a concise nature to swiftly get to the root of a particular issue. Given the aggressive and highly adversarial nature of the opposing party, her rapid responses and strength of resolve made a huge difference. In the end, justice was served. We were so impressed with Elyse that we have since hired her as our personal trust attorney. She has served us well in the years since and continues to do so to this day.

Amazingly Helpful
We had a family member pass away in Nevada and we are from California. We were in the dark as to how to proceed with the will and probate, in another state. We were referred to Elyse from friend and it was the best thing for us! She met with us immediately and put everything together in record time. She was responsive to phone calls and emails, sometime within minutes. Handled everything from start to finish. Professional, prompt and reliable.

Excellent Probate Attorney
I was referred to Elyse Tyrell after a friend found out I was in need of a probate attorney. I had a dear friend pass away unexpectedly and he had left me in charge of "most" of his assets. Unfortunately, my friend did not have everything in order as he thought. It has been a very lengthy, legal ordeal. I am thankful for the countless hours Ms. Tyrell and her staff have spent to provide me with peace of mind and to finalize my friends estate. So many people advised me to let everything go but I am glad I had her advice and am doing the right thing to tie up all lose ends so that his estate can be finalized properly. I am thankful and forever grateful for her expertise, time and compassion during such a stressful process.

TRUSTED
In 1999 I needed a POA contract written and called Elyse. I went to her having no idea what I exactly needed but handed her the form she explained it to me simply to me so I can understand. My transacting went smoothly and I worried for nothing. I have been using her ever since, even for other matters I call her and she sends me to the right direction either with an associate or an other attorney. I have also referred many of my friends to her for some simple guardianships to complicated probate court. My husband and I just recently sat down with her to do our estate planning and living trust. I thought it would be complicated and difficult because of all the businesses we own , properties and kids but again she made it simple and easy for us . So we totally recommend Elyse Tyrell to anyone . Thanks Elyse for everything

Estate Planning, Guardianship a
After interviewing 3 other attorneys, we selected Elyse because she always responded to our phone calls and email messages. Because she was so responsive to our questions, we knew she took an interest in our case and that we were important. Her retainer was competitive and I am not one to say "what should be charged." I believe that her engagement terms were competitive. Our case involved a living trust, a medical directive and planning for my mother's (82 years of age) estate, which involved her four (4) children. I have already referred four (4) of my associates to Elyse and they are all self-employed with families. Elyse should be commended for her hard work, excellent communicating skills (always tells you the facts) and she cares for her clients.

An attorney who advocates for her clients' justice
I have had the pleasure of attorney Elyse Tyrell representing my company as a private guardian for numerous cases over the past 10 years. She has been an exemplary model for all attorneys who are hired to protect the health and welfare of vulnerable incompetent adults. Her heart for justice is as magnificent as her knowledge of elder law. Mrs. Tyrell is an exceptional lawyer. Her legal team offer professional and timely services. I would highly recommend Tyrell's law firm.

Piece of mind
Mrs Tyrell created our living trust for us when our first child was born. It was hard to think about and make plans for your child's future without you when this amazing time in your life is just beginning. Mrs Tyrell and her staff helped this process to be a pleasant and painless experience. It is piece of mind knowing that I had the opportunity to make sure that my child's future is planned out. I can't thank Mrs Tyrell enough for her professionalism and care throughout this process. I highly recommend her.

Very understanding
Mrs. Tyrell helped with my estate planning. She was quite easy to talk with and was very understanding when I had questtions. Knowing how important this matter was to my wife and I, she ensured we were fully informed of all the options available to us, guided us through those options and even had her staff call us afterwards to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. My wife and I were very pleased with the handling our our estate planning by Mrs. Tyrell and were probably even more impressed with the compassion and fairness in which we were dealt with.

EXCEEDED ALL MY EXPECTATIONS!!
I am so thankful that Elyse Tyrell was recommended to me by a highly respected Las Vegas professional. I live out of state and I needed legal representation for a complicated probate case. Initially, I was so overwhelmed and I had so many questions and concerns. I could not have been more impressed with Elyse and her legal team. From the first phone call and throughout the entire legal process, they were extremely kind, compassionate and very helpful. Everything was explained to me step by step and all of my many questions were answered. I would highly recommend this very professional law firm!! I am so grateful !!!

Elyse is extremely knowledgeable and helpful explaining the process of estate planning and the entire process was completed in a timely and efficient manner. The entire firm is customer oriented and thorough. We are very happy to be protected by such a wonderful lawyer and look forward to recommending and using her in the future.
