Ste 400, McKinney,
As a former prosecutor, I evaluated criminal cases from the prosecution’s side. I looked for legal and factual problems to overcome and obtain a conviction. Now, I identify those problems and use them to benefit my clients.

Our family was very fortunate to have Kristi Tyler represent our daughter during difficult times. At our first meeting, Kristi was super patient listening to every detail of the situation. She was never judgmental and worked very hard to allay our fears and give us hope. Kristi is professional, thorough, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. Kristi’s communication skills are excellent. She did an excellent job of keeping us informed and answering our calls, texts, and emails anytime we had questions. We believe Kristi Tyler is the best and our family has the utmost respect for her.
I could have not asked for a better, professional, more kind and got the job done attorney, than Mrs. Kristi Tyler. She was court appointed and treated me no differently than someone who was privately, hired. Both my cases were dismissed. She kept informed every step of the way and always gave all of the court information needed to ensure I was always at the correct court and on time. If I ever need an attorney again, lord knows i hope i don’t, but i wouldn’t hesitate to contact this firm again and will send any one who need a great attorney, to this firm as well.
