He competed in numerous American Mock Trial Association tournaments held in several different states, including Florida, Georgia, Texas, and Nebraska. After graduating from UCF, he wanted to join a local Sarasota law firm to gain legal experience prior to attending law school. Subsequently, he joined Hale Law. During his time at Hale Law, Tyler has continuously striven to bring passion, motivation, and dedication to all of his work in order to ensure a strong and successful personal injury case for each of the firm’s clients. While at Hale Law, he has also cemented his interest in litigation, and he cannot wait to see where it takes him in the future. This fall, Tyler will start his first year of law school at Thomas M. Cooley School of Law in Riverview, Florida. After graduating, Tyler hopes to return to the Sarasota area to practice law in the community that helped shape him into the person he is today.
