R. Levin Review
Our company received an unexpected Shareholder Derivative Action on Friday, May 30th. Due to upcoming travel and busy work schedules it was important we understand the action and formulate a response strategy as soon as possible. Mr. Lyttle was able to find time to meet on Saturday to review the matter and by Sunday evening hand delivered a review of the action along with a strategy for responding. Mr. Lyttle was extremely responsive to our requests and was able to present the action and strategy for response in a clear and concise manner! I highly recommend Mr. Lyttle.

A personal connection
Sean Lyttle will take your case personally. He will fight for you and only you, as if your case was his own. During my divorce case Sean took every avenue to ensure that my interests were his first priority. Sean was even willing to speak and handle my case, when needed, after hours. Sean Lyttle is truly a trustworthy and honest lawyer.

a lawyer like no other
i was having some legal issues with removing my former business partner from our business, as well as trying to get everything of the business transferred to my name. Sean was great help, he was always there for me when i had questions or concerns (or called me as soon as he was able). if it weren't for him, i fear my ex-partner would have come in, and taken everything i tried to salvage after she ran the business into the ground. when i was sued by former employees for non-payment of wages (my ex-partners handiwork), he helped me organize a case, gave me incredible advise that got me personally off the hook for her bad business practices. if it were not for Sean, i don't know where i would have stood business wise or financially. he goes above and beyond for his clients, and doesn't make you feel unaccomplished or uneducated for asking a legal question. i would recommend Sean to anyone in need of legal help and advise.

Divorce and Custody
I feel extremely grateful to have had Sean Lyttle as my divorce attorney. Sean understood the process, explained everything, and always responded ASAP. He respected all of the emotions that go along with a relationship ending and really took time to get to know me and my children so he could best serve us. I would recommend Sean 100%!

Preparing our living trust
We needed to prepare a new family trust as our old one was outdated. Sean was very professional, easy to talk to, and very accessible. He even came to our house for the consultation! I've never heard of that. The trust was done in a timely manner and I would trust Sean with all of my legal needs.

Smart, Personal Service
Mr. Lyttle help me establish my business. Getting through the complex forms to begin a business is difficult and time consuming. Mr. Lyttle was there every step of the way. His rates are also very competitive. I was much better off using a local professional like Mr. Lyttle than the "business in a box" type of online services, especially here in Las Vegas where you have city, county, and state issues. I would recommend Mr. Lyttle to anyone requiring legal services.

Committed to the end
At the most difficult time in my life, Attorney Lyttle came to save the day. I was in the middle of being my own attorney in my divorce. He stepped in and took charge of the situation and lead me through what was at times a surreal experience. He guided me through a painful processes to a conclusion that I could not have imagined. Although there are no winners in divorce, he secured the best possible outcome. The result was beyond what I could have imagined. I am truly blessed.

Great attorney, would highly recommend!
Divorce is no fun, but Mr. Lyttle made it as quick and painless as possible. He explained everything I didn't understand and was honest and up front about everything from timelines to cost. If I have another legal matter come up again, I will definitely be coming back to Mr. Lyttle!

Best, most honest attorney around.
I contacted Mr. Lyttle regarding a divorce, and I must say, I'm so happy I did. From initiation to completion, he was there every step of the way. He was attentive, compassionate, knowledgeable, and he made himself available to me when I had questions. He really seemed to have my child's best interest at heart and he worked really hard to get me everything I wanted from the separation. His expertise was head and shoulders above my ex's attorney, and I couldn't be more grateful.

Honest Lawyer?
A trustworthy lawyer is hard to find! Mr. Lyttle was able to ease my mind and handle the situation to our benefit at an extremely reasonable rate. We would definitely refer him to a friend and use his services again, if needed.
