BBGA Personal Injury Attorney Tyler Mathis recently graduated from the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association (GTLA) Leadership Education & Advanced Direction (LEAD) Program.
The LEAD Program is a selective, highly acclaimed program that trains young, promising trial lawyers who have been identified as potential leaders with the necessary tools to take the next steps in their legal careers, both in and out of the courtroom. Participants are selected through a competitive application process and are purposefully chosen from diverse geographic locations and areas of trial practice
“As a plaintiff’s attorney, I am passionate about seeking justice for those who have been wronged,” Tyler said. “My involvement in LEAD allowed me to learn from some of the nation’s leading trial lawyers. Because of the skills and insights I’ve gained through LEAD, I will be able to provide an improved level of service to not only my clients but also to the community,” he said. “Participating in LEAD also allowed me to establish lifelong relationships with my LEAD classmates, who are among the most talented and accomplished young attorneys in Georgia.”
In all, Tyler said the group completed 44 hours of lessons by some of the best trial lawyers in Georgia.
Tyler joined the personal injury team at Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, P.C. in June 2020. His practice at BBGA includes medical malpractice, car and truck accidents, nursing home abuse, and other personal injury cases.
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.
GTLA is dedicated to protecting the Constitutional promise of justice for all by guaranteeing the right to trial by jury, preserving an independent judiciary, and providing access to the courts for all Georgians.
