Tyler Mathis joined the personal injury team at Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, P.C. in June 2020. Tyler’s practice at BBGA includes medical malpractice, car and truck accidents, nursing home abuse, and other personal injury cases.
He is so grateful to have the opportunity to work on plaintiff cases that help to right a wrong that has been done to a person.
“I am very passionate about working on the plaintiff’s side of the law. When my grandmother was killed by a negligent truck driver, a plaintiff’s attorney took our case. The attorneys worked diligently and compassionately on our case. It was a very difficult time for my family and knowing that someone had our back meant a lot to us. It inspired me to want to be a plaintiff’s attorney and do that for other people.”
Tyler was born and raised in Dublin, Georgia, and graduated from Georgia College and State University, in Milledgeville, with a degree in Political Science.
After graduating from GCSU, Tyler earned his J.D. at the University of Georgia School of Law. During law school, Tyler spent four semesters working at The Veterans Legal Clinic at UGA Law, which serves Georgia veterans and helps them get the benefits they’ve earned through their military service.
Tyler also founded the UGA School of Law’s First-Generation Student Association and was the recipient of the Stacey Godfrey Evans Scholarship, which is awarded to first-generation college graduates. The student group focuses on social issues that are relevant to first-generation graduates and is an addition to the First-Start Scholars Program.
Tyler lives in Athens with his wife, Lanie, and their two dogs, Dooley and Ellie. In his free time, Tyler enjoys visiting his family in Middle Georgia and cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs.
