Tyler joined TorHoerman Law in 2013 and has spent a majority of his time with the firm working on our mass tort litigation.
Tyler is a homegrown THL hero, having joined us after clerking at THL while attending Saint Louis University School of Law.
Tyler was born and raised in Madison County, IL.
He attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Human and Organizational Development with a concentration in public policy.
While at Vanderbilt, Tyler was not only on Dean’s list and several academic societies but also was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity and was a disc jockey for the college radio station WRVU.
It was during his undergraduate years that Tyler learned he wanted to pursue justice for those injured by dangerous drugs and medical devices, as he was an intern for attorneys Tor Hoerman, Steve Davis, and Eric Terry.
Tyler obtained his law degree at Saint Louis University School of Law and he was active in the Public Interest Law Group and competed in the ABA Law Student Division Client Counseling Competition.
During his second year in law school, Tyler convinced THL that we couldn’t live without him, but Tyler remained a clerk until he was properly hazed by THL as well as the IL and MO bar examiners.
Since joining the THL team, Tyler focuses his energy on representing clients who have been wronged by the tortious acts of others, including cases such as catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, toxic torts, maritime law, products liability, pharmaceutical and medical devices, and other mass torts.
Tyler is a member of the Illinois and Missouri bars and has been admitted to several federal courts (the Northern District of Illinois federal court, the Southern District of Illinois federal court, and The Eastern District of Missouri).
He is also a proud member of American Association for Justice, American Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Association, Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis, Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, Illinois State Bar Association, and the Missouri Bar Association.
Tyler enjoys volunteering his time in civil rights cases as part of the pro bono program in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.
Outside of the office, Tyler spends his time with his family, including his wife and daughter.
