Excellent job protecting me has a client
Mr. Dickson handled my divorce that went to trial and lasted 11 months. The ex wife went through 4 lawyers during the process and she never did get one as good as Mr Dickson. He kept me informed through out the entire process. Mr.Dickson is very dedicated and honest in all aspects of the terms and he does what is right for his clients. Mr.Dickson background through his career comes from Military and civilian law enforcement and the values for upholding the honest truth puts him in a different category than others in his field. I wont ever look for another attorney as long as he is available.

Lyle is a very good attorney, the best I've ever had for my family law issues
I've hired 2 other attorneys for my child support in the past. Lyle is the only one who kept me informed of the procedures, aggressively represented me, and got results. Unfortunately, the other lawyers seemed to just collect a paycheck and went through the motions acting like they were watching out for me, but never even filed discovery requests. Lyle went well beyond that to help increase my support from a dad who was hiding his assets.

DRUNK DRIVING CASE DISMISSED
I was arrested for drunk driving by the state police. Lyle worked for months to get the case fully dismissed, getting the LIvingston County Prosecutor to agree that I was arrested illegally. Lyle was great, reasonably priced, and he was always around to answer my calls.

Great Job, Great Lawyer, Dedicated to my case
I was charged with a criminal offense. I wasn't guilty. Lyle was able to get my case dismissed when every other lawyer wanted me to plea to something I didn't do. Lyle was great, and answered his phone whenver I called, even at night. Thanks to Lyle, I have been cleared.

Lyle is a dedicated, competent, and client-focused attorney
Lyle Dickson did a fantastic job of helping me and my family out during some very difficult times. He is a dedicated, competent, and aggressive attorney who always has the best interest of his clients first and foremost in mind. Upon reviewing his credentials prior to hiring him, I quickly observed that his life has been committed to serving the community and the nation, as demonstrated by his service in the military, his years as an award-winning police officer, his service as an attorney (including the number of volunteer hours he’s served over his career), and the personal time and money he spent traveling to New Orleans to assist the victims of Hurricane Katrina, among other things. Mr. Dickson has a strong, positive moral compass and believes in doing things right. Prior to selecting him as my attorney, I had a lawyer tell me that Lyle "sometimes advocates too hard for his clients." Are you kidding me? Once I heard that, I hired him immediately. Once I did, I found those rumors to be absolutely true. He fought for me as if I was a member of his family, and we came out victorious as a result. If you are looking for a strong, intelligent, articulate attorney with a proven track record of courtroom victories, Lyle Dickson is your man. If any of my family members friends need an attorney in the future, I will recommend Lyle without hesitation or reservation. I give him my highest recommendation.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2021.

Suspension issued in MI, 2021
updated on 06/16/2021

Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

Suspension issued in MI, 2017
updated on 11/16/2017

Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

Lyle's comment: “Lyle was a Military Police Sergeant when asked to become an Officer with the Judge Advocate Corp. After commissioning, Major/Attorney John WOJCIK, General Counsel of MIARNG, made patently false statements about Lyle to the General and Congressman Mike Rogers. Lyle filed complaints with the Army and filed suit, AS DIRECTED by the Army. For this, the AGC decided to discipline Lyle, and let WOJCIK get away with his, now acknowledged, lies. APPEAL PENDING WITH SUPREME COURT. Not client related.”

Reprimand issued in MI, 2012
updated on 10/10/2012

Reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

Lyle's comment: “Lyle was negotiating a case for a victim prior to suit. Lyle was reprimanded when he re-contacted the identity thief who stole his clients identity. The thief said she was represented by an attorney, but the attorney's info could not be located, and Lyle sought clarification. It turned out the attorney was newly licensed & did not appear in the Bar Journal, nor in any court records. This alone has impacted Lyle's rating, but not his outstanding quality of work for his client.”
