Helping Families Who Need Our Help The Most
Our purpose is simple. We help people in need. We help families dealing with serious birth injuries to children. We stand up for them. We stand beside them. We guide them through the legal process every step of the way. And we hold those who have harmed them accountable for their actions.
That's why I became a lawyer.
That's why I founded the Tyrone Law Firm, PC.
That's why we defend the rights of families throughout Georgia.
Everything our Atlanta law firm does flows from this central purpose.
To help people in need, just like you.
My father the doctor:
I have always imagined that my becoming a lawyer started with my father - the doctor. Not that my father pushed me to become a lawyer. He didn't. In fact, I don't think he ever mentioned it to me. Instead, it is what I learned from my father - about how to live a meaningful life, how to make a difference, how to care for people - that lead me to the law.
My father was not someone who taught his children by explaining. Instead, he taught by doing - by example. Even as children, we could not mistake his love for helping people. Whether it was the fact that he worked every day, seven days a week, or that he would often return to the hospital, or to check on a patient, after he tucked his children into bed, or that (at least the rumor in our house was) that he never missed a day of work (ever) in his entire career. That is the example my father set with his children.
I realized early on that the talents that you need for medical school - in math and science - were not talents that I possessed. But I still believed that somehow, I would find a way to look after people the way my father did.
My father died far too young (at forty-seven of a heart attack). I was seventeen. His death left all of us reeling. Among other things, it left me searching for another example of how to make a difference in the world by helping people. My uncles are both lawyers. My grandfather on my mother's side was a lawyer and a judge. There were also lawyers in the community I grew up in (Columbus, Georgia) who seemed to make a difference. It seemed that helping people who had been left damaged - and by helping families who were struggling with the harm to (or loss or potential loss of) a member of their family, you could make a difference as a lawyer. Since medicine did not seem to fit, I chose law as the path I would follow to try and help people.
So that's how it started. My path to law school and my profession as a lawyer started not with a lawyer, but a doctor. My father's example as a doctor of caring for other human beings has directed me to where I am today. Although I do not stitch wounds, remove tumors or set bones to mend, I have the opportunity every day as a personal injury lawyer to help my clients rebuild their lives.
Here For You
Every family I represent is suffering. I approach each case the same way my father would a patient - by taking their calls whatever the hour, by working tirelessly with only my client's protection in mind, by listening carefully to what's wrong and coming up with a solution that addresses their unique circumstances. I work this way because I want to make a difference in people's lives.
Just ask anyone we work with or read their testimonials and endorsements. The families and kids I represent know I will stand by them, will directly address their problems and will hold those who have harmed them accountable for their actions. By fighting for them and by recovering money for them - to provide for their needs and their families - I believe I am continuing my father's work.
