Tyler Czapla

Sole Practitioner
Tyler, Texas

I'm Ty Czapla, a former Houston and now East Texas attorney with western roots and a deep appreciation and respect for the power of family.  I founded TLC Law, PLLC to help families traverse the often-complex family law system.  I also founded this firm to represent those families, and hard-working men and women, caught up in all-too-common legal controversies, such as landlord-tenant disputes, consumer law issues, employment discrimination, and contract disputes.

My passion for representing hard-working families and individuals stems from my upbringing.  I grew up in Gillette, Wyoming, on the sprawling high plains, roughly between Devils Tower (think Close Encounters of the Third Kind) and Yellowstone National Park.  My family has always been close knit and hardworking: my Mom owns and operates two daycares and my Dad worked at a coal mine and industrial parts company before retiring. I have, despite my hardheadedness, acquired their work ethic.  I also developed a great appreciation for children and the parent-child relationship, working as a teacher at my mother's daycare several summers and after-school.

After graduating with a political science degree and then a J.D. from The University of Wyoming, it was only natural that I gravitate towards a career helping children and families just like the ones I had grown to respect in my youth.  After working for two years as a motions practice attorney, perfecting my research and writing skills, I began taking family law and general civil litigation cases.  These cases opened my eyes and rekindled my passion to influence families and the working-class in a positive way; through affordable legal representation individually tailored to each client.

I am, first and foremost, a family man. I love the simple things in life; playing with my son and eating out with my wife. I also love art, specifically photography and acrylic painting. I bring a creative side to my work and am always looking to advocate for my clients in a creative, fresh way.
