Practice Areas

Family Law

Are you separated? Have you and your spouse agreed on issues such as child custody, property division, etc.? Is your former spouse late on alimony or child support payments? Has your income recently diminished to the point that you’re having difficulty making your child support payments?

If any of these questions sound similar to your circumstances, or if you are experiencing other domestic issues, then you need to talk to an attorney who can explain your rights and how to best achieve the results you desire. Tyler practices in Family Courts throughout Upstate South Carolina, helping clients bring closure to sensitive times in their life and establishing a more positive tomorrow.

Estate Planning & Elder Law

Are you a newlywed? Are you newly divorced? Have you and your spouse recently had a baby? Maybe you have just welcomed a new grandchild into the world? Have you and your partner just purchased a new home? Did you just win the lottery? Have you recently relocated to South Carolina from another state?

If any of these life-changing scenarios resemble your life, then now is the time to review your estate plan, and if you have no estate plan in place then now is the time for you to develop one for the future. Contact Tyler to discuss your specific estate planning needs.

Additionally, Tyler also counsels families with loved ones who are facing the prospect of needing significant medical assistance or are already receiving some form of home healthcare or long-term healthcare in a facility. This situation can be daunting for the entire family, so let Tyler discuss the options and alternatives with you.


Has your loved one recently passed away? Did he or she leave behind a will? Did the deceased own assets when they passed, regardless of whether or not he or she had a will?

If so, then a probate estate needs to be opened and a Personal Representative (also known as an Executor) needs to be appointed by the Probate Court. Tyler can help you through this legal process during emotional and trying times. Whether you have a small probate estate to administer or extended probate litigation, Tyler has experience in this delicate practice.

Additionally, many people are unaware that if their loved one does not have proper estate planning and becomes incapacitated during their lifetime, Probate Court is the place to seek the appointment of a Conservator or Guardian to make financial or healthcare decisions for the incapacitated person. Tyler can help you establish a Conservatorship or Guardianship to assist your loved one.

Automobile Accidents & General Civil Litigation

Have you been injured in a car wreck? Did you incur devastating medical costs from your injuries? Did you lose wages from work while you were recovering? Has your family also suffered because you were unable to perform your daily duties around the house during your medical recovery?

If this has happened to you, then you need an advocate to maximize your financial recovery. Contact Tyler before you talk to an insurance adjuster.

Tyler also handles a variety of general litigation matters. No issue is too small to call – if it matters to you, it matters to Tyler.
