Tyler Texas Attorney

Tyler Lawyer | Mediator | Podcaster

AttorneyFlowers[1]I love helping people. Whether I’m helping my clients, or other lawyers, or people in my community, I feel like I’m doing what I was called to do when I am actually helping others. This desire to HELP people is what drove me to become a lawyer. It also drove me to write several books and to start my own podcast for solo and small firm lawyers.
