Education and Honors
Before attending Chapman University’s School of Law and then graduating with honors from the University of Utah’s Public Policy Master’s program, Tyler graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Arizona State University. In addition to clerkship experience at the California and Arizona Courts of Appeals, Tyler has argued at the Federal Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and assisted with drafting briefs presented to the Supreme Court of the United States.
Tyler has presented state-wide for the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), the Alzheimer’s Association, AHCA, ALFA, and KFNX’s Successful Aging radio program. In addition to co-authoring a resource guide that reaches 50,000 readers each year, Tyler has been published in the Arizona Republic, the Glendale Star, the Peoria Times, and Luke News. Tyler served as Executive Editor for Chapman Law Review, is an accredited VA Attorney, belongs to the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, has sat on the board for Parkinson Network of Arizona, and currently sits on Arizona Health Care Foundation’s board.
As a shareholder at Jackson White, PC, Tyler has assisted thousands of people with all stages of the ALTCS process, from pre-crisis planning to the highest level of appeal, always with the resolve to help his clients obtain long-term care coverage as quickly as possible. Tyler further partners with dozens of long-term care facilities around the state to prevent coverage gaps by helping their residents navigate the ALTCS process and qualify for coverage.
These endeavors stem from Tyler’s compassion for one of Arizona’s most vulnerable populations, older people in need of care. Tyler loves finding creative ways in which to partner with healthcare professionals and create unique solutions for mitigating bad debt and helping those in need qualify for benefits that cover their costly long-term care expenses.
Tyler looks for any opportunity to play golf, which often involves taking his community partners out for a break from their typical day-to-day. Meditation is another big part of Tyler’s life, and he volunteers at continuum of care communities to train older people in the practice of meditation. Yet another of Tyler’s passions is music, whether playing guitar or banjo in his band or traveling the country to see his favorite musicians perform.
Most important to Tyler, though, are his wife and five children, and he loves spending one-on-one time with each of them, be that while surfing in Southern California, snowboarding on a powder day in Utah, taking a ride in the family’s VW Bus, or simply talking about their successes and challenges over a delicious, healthful meal.
