Tyson Logan loves representing and fighting for people who would otherwise have nowhere else to turn. Tyson is a passionate trial lawyer. He is a people person. He is inspired by the opportunities regular people still have — with the help of hard working trial lawyers — to stand up in court and fight against the rich and powerful. Tyson has fought for and won substantial jury verdicts and settlements across the country, involving wrongful death and personal injury and especially in the areas of traumatic brain injury, carbon monoxide poisoning, and other cases of corporate negligence and recklessness.
As a teacher on staff at Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyer’s College, Tyson has been fortunate to work with the best and brightest trial lawyers across the country. Tyson was recently chosen and listed as a 2016 “Super Lawyer” and he was previously selected as a SuperLawyers “Rising Star” from 2012-2015 in the Mountain States. Tyson is also a member of the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 and the National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers. He is also a member of the American Society of Legal Advocates Top 40 Under 40 in Wyoming. Tyson has represented numerous CO poisoning victims, oilfield, mine, and railroad workers involved in industrial accidents and disasters resulting from companies’ disregard for federal safety laws and industry standards, and in complex personal injury and wrongful death cases in Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Utah, California, Alaska, and across the west.
Tyson has presented to trial lawyer groups across the country on issues related to trial skills and strategy, communication, and carbon monoxide poisoning. Tyson has been studying and working with brain-injured patients and medical experts to learn and create new ways of effectively communicating in difficult circumstances—he presented Communication is (Never) Easy, incorporating creative ideas on communicating and working with brain-injured patients, at a Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association seminar in November 2015. Tyson has a unique interest in meditation and mindfulness and its applications for trial lawyers. He recently spoke on these issues as a staff presenter at the 2015 360 Advocacy Voir Dire seminar in Aspen, Colorado. Tyson also presented on carbon monoxide (CO) issues and Ego in the Courtroom at the 2014 Melvin Belli Society Annual Seminar, as part of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Annual Convention in Baltimore, Maryland.
In 2015 and 2016 Tyson successfully settled a carbon monoxide poisoning case on behalf of the family of McQuen Forbush, a young Marine who was killed in a CO poisoning incident in an apartment complex in Boise, Idaho, and his girlfriend Breanna Halowell, who suffered CO poisoning and brain injury as a result of the incident. Tyson and his team reached confidential settlements with five separate defendants before the plumbing company defendant and the defendant plumber settled claims against them for an additional $1 million. The case is ongoing.
Notably, Tyson and fellow Spence partner G. Bryan Ulmer also represented a young woman who was poisoned with carbon monoxide gas from a dangerous furnace inside an apartment in Casper, Wyoming. The young woman suffered a brain injury as a result of the landlords’ reckless disregard for their tenants’ safety. The Wyoming jury returned a $28.5 million verdict, including punitive damages against the building owner and the apartment management company. Lompe v. Sunridge Partners, LLC, and Apartment Management Consultants, LLC was recently reported as one of the Top 100 Verdicts of 2013 by the National Law Journal.
Tyson represents and is investigating a number of other victims who have suffered death, brain injuries and other harm due to carbon monoxide poisoning and other catastrophic events in Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, Idaho, Utah, California, and across the country.
