  • Lana Lea Traynor

    I have co-counseled with Tyler Smith on several complex civil litigation matters in the education/administrative areas. Tyler has an unmatched ability to review a case and offer sound legal advice during emotionally charged meetings. This is not easy to do. Tyler fights "for the little guy," as do I. He is not dissuaded by seemingly impossible odds. He surrounds himself by other attorneys and individuals who can assist him (and the client) in achieving the best possible result for the client. He seeks assistance when needed, but allows co-counsel to participate in the legal ego and no second-guessing. Again, not easy to do. Tyler coordinated the overall legal strategy in an organized manner. On more than one occasion, I sought his counsel with respect to difficult and sensitive matters. Every time, I was impressed by his clear-headed, objective analysis and followed his advice. Without reservation, I would co-counsel with Tyler again if given the opportunity.
