“Ben represented me in a personal injury suit. We sued for medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering following an auto accident where the other driver ran a stop light at 50 mph and hit me broadside. I suffered a herniated disc and nerve damage to my right arm. Ben was most helpful, kept me informed of all my options each step of the way. We are now waiting for a final settlement number from the insurance company.”
“I hired Ben to assist me with the formation of an LLC. Since I had a minority partner on this deal he also advised us and created a purchase agreement.

Ben has been great for my businesses and I would recommend any of the services he offers.”

Mr. Tyree kept me informed regarding how the case was progressing, he contacted me regarding what I would consider a just settlement, and he handled all aspects of the case for me, including repayment to Medicare for medical bills they had paid. He was very professional. I felt very well represented. I will contact him again if I need legal services in the future. I highly recommend him.”
