Tyler Dupuy

Personal Injury Attorney Fort Myers, FL

Tyler Dupuy is our managing personal injury attorney based out of the Farah and Farah Fort Myers office. Managing attorneys help ensure smooth operations within the office, guide newer attorneys, lend their experience on challenging cases, and encourage the client-first mindset Farah and Farah is known for. Tyler is a little different because he maintains a full caseload of his own clients in addition to his managing attorney role. Not many attorneys can juggle so many responsibilities, but Tyler's depth of experience makes it look smooth.

Behind his kind demeanor, you’ll find a highly-seasoned advocate who holds nothing back for his clients. Rather than take lowball offers and move on to the next case, Tyler employs dogged persistence that continually achieves highly favorable outcomes for his clients.

From Assistant State Attorney and Insurance Defense to Litigation and Leadership 

During law school, I served as President of Moot Court, clerked for the Hon. Ivan F. Fernandez at the Florida Third District Court of Appeal, and represented my law school on the Board of Governors for the Florida Bar Law Student Division. The many “lessons learned” from this early experience led me to join the State Attorney’s Office as an assistant state attorney right out of law school. In this role, I prosecuted thousands of misdemeanor and felony crimes from some of the worst offenders in our area.

After leaving the State Attorney’s Office, I joined a defense firm where I defended large corporations and insurance companies in personal injury cases. This experience served me well when I joined the ranks of Farah and Farah to help build up the Fort Myers office. 

Knowing what tactics the defense team will try and use to impede my client’s case is easy because I used to help write that playbook. Now, I use my experience on both sides of the courtroom to chart the most advantageous course of action for my client’s case. 

In addition to a full caseload, I’m a Managing Attorney at Farah and Farah Ft Myers, with a team of over 20 top-tier legal professionals working collaboratively to get the best results possible. Other firms can be quite compartmentalized and competitive, but we prioritize working together to capitalize on shared strengths.   

I’ll Handle the Legal Side; You Focus on Getting Better

Having the ability to take a client who is often without hope, who has serious injuries, and feels powerless and leaving them with peace, justice, satisfaction, and hope is what it’s all about for me. Clients that come to us are searching for someone to help guide them through the process. I meet my clients exactly where they’re at and ensure they know I’m rolling on the legal side of things while they focus on getting treatment. One of my very top responsibilities is regularly being in touch with my clients. Updating clients on the steps of their case and explaining the process helps them have confidence that I know what I’m doing and they know I’m fighting for them. As an attorney, I’ve learned persistence really pays off, and I use this trait to my advantage. I’ll take whatever avenue I can take to get my client’s case where it needs to be. 

An example that immediately comes to mind is when my client was in a large chain retail outlet store when she slipped on a foreign substance in one of the aisles. The store’s owners were adamant they had a whole reporting system they used for keeping the entire store clean morning, noon, and night. When I requested a month’s worth of these reports to see the condition of the store leading up to my client’s accident, I only received three. In reality, the company just wasn’t doing them. The store set out with a good goal of store safety, but by not doing these safety checks, they were careless, unconcerned with customer safety, and simply didn’t do the right thing. If you put the picture of a giant corporation that pretends to care but actually doesn’t in front of the jury, you can get the client a better value. In the end, persistence paid off, and I was able to secure a great outcome for my client.   

We Do Things Differently Here

From an attorney’s perspective, I think our greatest advantage is the family feel we have here at Farah and Farah. True, we are definitely a big firm, but we don’t have a “size matters” mentality. In fact, many clients have come from that setting to our firm. Not because their attorney at the mega-firm wasn’t competent, but that all too many feel like they weren’t given the time of day. Working together as a family-built business is intentional straight from Eddie and Chuck, who are both still very much engaged in the day-to-day. 

It’s really neat to see the top-named partners in a firm still engaging in cases and with clients rather than leaving that to someone else. This gives our entire team across every office a clear picture of how we’re supposed to treat clients. There is an expectation from the firm and the clients that they’ll be treated right. As an attorney here, you have to meet those expectations. I guide and mentor our newer attorneys here on this very subject. The “Farah Way” all starts with putting clients first in everything we do. Other big firms can be individualized, where no one crosses the aisles to help one another, and there’s a constant air of competitiveness. That’s just not how we do things here. If we have a tough case, we’ll have 30 attorneys together to roundtable. The perspective and ideas we develop as a team are how we go from a “just okay” result to the best possible outcome for our clients. 

Southwest Florida is My Home Too

I’m from Southwest Florida and feel blessed to live and raise my family here. My wife Kelsey and I live in Alva, FL, with our baby girl, Piper Grace, dogs (Chevy & Ruby), and horses (Sonny & Mae). We are active in the equestrian community and truly anything having to do with the outdoors. I love that there are so many state parks within an easy distance to hike or boat around. 

If it’s the weekend and I’m not in the Farah and Farah office, we love getting out on the water to any of the little islands around here. Cayo Costa, a beautiful barrier island state park, is one of our absolute favorite spots. 

“Tyler Dupuy is one hard-hitting attorney. His relentless approach to each case he undertakes—no matter how big or small—is how he’s secured such a long list of fantastic outcomes for truly grateful clients. The success of our Ft. Myers’ office is largely a testament to his leadership; indeed, the entire firm is lucky to have such power-hitters among our ranks.” – Chuck Farah, Senior Partner at Farah & Farah
