Tyler Rands

Founding Attorney


Tyler Rands is the founding attorney of RandsLaw and is licensed to practice law before the State and Federal courts of Idaho.

Mr. Rands grew up in Fairfax, Virginia, in the suburbs of Washington D.C. It was there that he gained a love and interest in our nation’s history—from visiting the numerous museums and monuments, walking the battlefields of Antietam, Manassas and Bull Run, and visiting early colonial historical sites at Williamsburg and Jamestown. Mr. Rands loves all things related to history, but especially pertaining to the Civil War and World War II.

Music has always been a large part of Mr. Rands’ life. In addition to singing, Mr. Rands plays several instruments and has participated in numerous choirs and bands, playing everything from jazz to blue grass to barbershop. He has been a member of several award-winning barbershop quartets.  When not spending time with his wife and six kids, you will find him singing.

Mr. Rands attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, where he obtained a B.S. in Microbiology. He planned on attending medical school before changing course and attending law school instead. He obtained his law degree magna cum laude from Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. Mr. Rands would soon trade the green grass and lush forests of the East for the rugged mountains and beautiful skies of the West.

Mr. Rands began his legal career as a law clerk for the Honorable Darrel R. Perry and later the Honorable John M. Melanson of the Idaho Court of Appeals. After his clerkship, he worked for a local firm in Twin Falls, Idaho for several years before opening RandsLaw.

Mr. Rands has been a presenter on contract matters as well as posthumous collections through probate both at local and statewide conferences.
