Highly recommended
He was very thorough and helpful with putting together my trust. My husband had just passed away at age 36 and I was in no way able to plan for the worst in case something happened to me. Tyler walked me through it and made all the arrangements to get my trust finalized. He even assisted with some checks that came in my husband's name that I was unable to deposit since his name was no longer on my account. I would highly recommend him and if I EVER need legal services again I will definitely use him. He even helped answer some contractual law questions I had for my son. For which he never charged me for. He is great.

Excellent service
I contacted Tyler last year to do a living trust, to me it seemed very complex because I am a business owner, property owner and have various other assets like cars and equipment. Tyler to all the time needed to explain how the trust works and and options that I should consider, the end result is what I consider a highly professional family trust that puts my mind at ease knowing this was done by a lawyer who not only specializes in wills and trusts but truly cares that it is done properly. Tyler is very "hands on", no dealing with a paralegal here.

Excellent Attorney
Tyler Melling provided excellent service at a fair price. While he is a young attorney, it was clear that he has thoroughly studied estate planning and is extremely professional in the way he dealt with us. Filling out his questionnaire made it easy to complete our Wills and other documents to give us peace of mind about our future. Tyler was up front about all costs and expectations and made sure that we knew all of our options while planning our future. We will be recommending Tyler to everyone we know!!

Estate planning Attorney | Jun 24
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Tyler Melling is an extremely intelligent lawyer, and is one who many other attorneys in the area turn to for advice when dealing with complex estate planning and probate issues. Hence, Tyler is a very reasonable person, which helps him to resolve many matters that other, less reasonable attorneys are often not able to resolve short of litigation, and as such, is well respected in the legal community--among other attorneys and in the courts as well."

"I endorse this lawyer. I very much respect Attorney Melling’s efforts to supply useful and quality answers to the questioners.

I would easily work with him should I have a matter that involved his jurisdiction."
