What do you really need in an attorney?

You need an attorney who will listen closely to you, gain an understanding of your unique needs and goals, and take the time to explain your options in plain English, without all that confusing “legalese.” You need an attorney who will treat you with respect and provide you with exemplary client service. Finally, you need an attorney who understands the law and is willing to do whatever it takes to protect your interests and those of your family.

At The Tyra Law Firm, you can expect all of this and more. Whether you need help in the area of family law, estate planning, elder law, a personal injury, or a combination of these services, we are here for you. As a sole practitioner, attorney Neil Tyra will work with you personally to handle all of your legal matters. Contact our Rockville law office today to schedule a consultation with Mr. Tyra to discuss your specific legal needs.
