Tyler Talbert

“My job is to simplify complex legal issues—to take the complicated and make it clear. That is the key to compelling advocacy.”

pic-talbertTyler Talbert focuses his practice on providing high-quality appellate advocacy to clients and support to trial attorneys. Tyler briefs and argues civil appeals in the Supreme Court of Texas, Texas intermediate appellate courts, and the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.

His experience includes sovereign immunity and pleas to the jurisdiction, derivative litigation, personal injury, contracts, employment, and injunctive relief. Tyler assists trial attorneys in all aspects, from writing and arguing summary judgment and post-judgment motions, providing guidance on error preservation, and drafting jury charges.

There he served as Managing Editor of his journal and participated in Moot Court all three years, winning the prestigious Richard R.
