Born and raised in West Chester, Rob Lyons has seen the region go from farmland to a thriving suburban community, one where he chose to plant the seeds of his own family and business. As a practicing attorney since 1980 and a Butler County Court Judge since 1999, Lyons loves having the opportunity to help people.
“In both jobs, you often encounter people at difficult times in their lives,” Lyons says. “It is very gratifying and rewarding to help people navigate through trying situations and help them make a positive change in their life.”
One of his most personally gratifying moments was when his youngest of four children, Kara Lyons, chose to practice law at the family’s firm, Lyons & Lyons. Together, they continue to positively impact the community around them in order to ensure that West Chester and Liberty Township remain among the best places to live.
“I’ve always wanted to help people in my hometown, and that’s what we’ve done,” says Rob Lyons.
His main areas of practice are criminal defense with a concentration in the areas of D.U.I. and traffic cases, personal injury, auto accidents, probate, estate and financial planning.
Rob received a B.S. degree in business from Miami University, Oxford, in 1977, and a J.D. degree from Chase College of Law, North Kentucky University in 1980. He has served as Judge in the Butler County Area I Court since 1999. He has been a business law and a criminal law instructor at Miami University. Rob began practicing law in 1980. In 1983 he opened a law office in West Chester and in 1991 Rob founded Lyons & Lyons Co., L.P.A. He has been obtaining successful outcomes for his clients in State and Federal courts for decades.
