Tylden Shaeffer

I previously worked as a first chair felony prosecutor at the District Attorney's office, which gave me the experience needed to understand the law from both sides. I am well able to understand how the offense will work and can work to successfully combat it.

My experience working as a prosecutor is invaluable in my efforts to protect my clients. As I have worked on both sides of the law, I am able to understand their train of thought and can tell how they will react so that I am able to stay three steps ahead to building a solid defense.

I am aggressive and tenacious in my efforts to protect my clients. I understand that there is no room for anything less than my complete attention and I give 100% dedication to every case that I am presented with.

Personal interests:

I love to practice law.
