Before starting his own firm, Tyler practiced for six years, first as an associate attorney and then partner, at a civil litigation firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he primarily represented railroads and other clients in the transportation industry. Much of this work focused on wrongful death and serious personal injury cases as well as employment law, including matters arising under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). He later practiced with a financial services law firm after serving as Senior Trial Counsel with a national, non-profit public interest organization. Additionally, Tyler was previously an attorney with a business law firm in Raleigh, providing litigation support to a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee. He has been an Adjunct Professor at Trinity International University’s Trinity Law School and an Adjunct Instructor at the University of Memphis School of Law.
Tyler graduated summa cum laude from Wake Forest University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Latin with Departmental Honors. At Wake Forest, he was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa and Eta Sigma Phi (Classics Honor Society) and received the M.D. Phillips Prize in Classical Languages. He received his J.D. in 2006 from Vanderbilt University Law School, where he served on the Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law as an Articles Editor and received awards for attaining the highest grade in his courses on Evidence and Corporations. He further holds a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree in Taxation with a Certificate in Estate Planning from Villanova University’s Graduate Tax Program, through which he also completed advanced coursework in ERISA and employee benefits law.
Following his graduation from Vanderbilt, Tyler served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Walter C. Kurtz, a trial court judge in Nashville and later Senior Judge for the State of Tennessee. He then clerked for the Honorable Bernice Bouie Donald, who was at the time a United States District Judge for the Western District of Tennessee and later a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
A Life Fellow of the American Bar Foundation and Past President of the Eastern District of North Carolina Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, Tyler previously served on the Section Council of the North Carolina Bar Association’s Appellate Practice Section and currently serves on the NCBA’s Appellate Rules Committee.
