The best lawyer during a difficult time

I hired Tyler to represent me in a post-divorce modification action. I wanted to move out of state with my children. Tyler took the case to trial and we achieved my goal of being able to leave the state. He was such an amazing advocate and partner throughout many months of difficult and emotional litigation. His communication is superb and he responded to all calls and emails the same day; I never needed to hound him for anything. He is super knowledgeable about family law and, having clerked for numerous judges, is clearly very familiar with the court system. If you want a talented, proactive and motivated family law attorney on your family’s side, hire Tyler. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

There's No One Else I'd Rather Retain for Family-Related Matters

Mr. Summers is the most professional attorney with which I have ever dealt. His attention to detail and passion were able to get me the best results. He treated me like family; there's no one else I'd rather retain for family-related matters.

A Compassionate and Effective Lawyer

I retained Tyler to represent me in obtaining a restraining order against my ex. Tyler was so compassionate when listening to my story, and he knew exactly what needed to be done. When we walked into the courthouse to obtain the restraining order, Tyler was extremely knowledgeable about the court's inner-workings. He also took special care to explain everything that was going on in the court room. If you want an honest, hardworking, and extremely smart attorney on your side, Tyler should definitely be on your list. I recommend his services wholeheartedly!

Great experience with a complicated prenuptial agreement

Tyler did an amazing job working with me on a complicated prenuptial agreement. I could not have had a better experience working with him on this process. Tyler was able to draft strong, non-standard language very quickly. I was nervous going into this process, not knowing what to expect, but I felt very comfortable working with Tyler and he explained legal technicalities very clearly to me.

Simply the best

I retained Tyler Summers, Esq. as my divorce attorney. I was very impressed with his knowledge of family law and his ability to explain things to me in such a way that I would understand, while also being sensitive to what I was going through emotionally at the time. Tyler kept me informed of every step of the process. I was included in on every call, email and trip to court. He took time to go over everything that I had to deal with, and did so in a calm, and non rushed way. He made me feel comfortable from that first moment I walked into his office until the case had been settled. I feel very lucky to have worked with Tyler during this process. And not that I want anyone else to have to go through a divorce, but if you find yourself in that situation, I highly, highly recommend Tyler!!! With hiring him, you would be getting a caring, professional, knowledgeable and honest attorney. I am happy that I had Tyler on my side during my divorce. Thanks for everything!

He's response time is impeccable and he makes me feel like I'm his only client when I know I'm not. He is calm, smart, and yet a fighter in the court room. He has had my back and protected myself and family. He is hardworking and a great lawyer!

Professional, Compassionate and Personable Representation

I hired Tyler to represent me in a sensitive legal matter. He offered me an unique balance of compassion and professionalism. Tyler also demonstrated a strong knowledge of the applicable law relating to my case. I felt reassured and confident with his understanding and explanation of the Massachusetts Court system, which made my situation tolerable. I would certainly hire him again, as well as highly recommend his services to others.

Professional, Encouraging, Honest

I was fortunate to retain Tyler Summers, Esq. as my divorce attorney. He has a keen understanding of family law, and is informed and realistic about the possibilities for a positive outcome. He took personal interest in me and my case, and the effects that the outcome would have on my family, particularly my children. I was grateful for his sensitivity. For me, and I imagine many, divorce was a particularly anxiety provoking experience.

He carefully explained the process to me, while always monitoring my level of comfort as we explored strategies and possibilities. He was also honest and fair as we discussed fees and compensation for the settlement. I found him to be appropriately motivated to pursue a just resolution, doing a thorough financial evaluation and requiring the same of my estranged spouse.

In short, while I hope no one ever has to experience divorce, it is a reality of our society. I cannot imagine a more professional, encouraging, and honest partner in the journey than Tyler. I would certainly consult him if I needed any additional legal advice.

I can't imagine ever using another lawyer. Tyler is an outstanding family lawyer. I am a "Very nervous " mom when it comes to my child and Tyler is there to answer all my questions right away, walk me though every step and problem. Honestly he makes you feel like you are his only case, and only focus. Though in reality he has many cases, but you would not ever know or feel that. He is trustworthy and has always had my back, and my case is not easy by any means. He's calm level headed and knows what he is doing, but when needed he's there ready to fight and trust me you want him on your side not against you! My experience with this law firm and with Tyler as my lawyer has been nothing but great!
