Lyman received his Juris Doctor in 2004 from Quinnipiac University School of Law in Hamden, Connecticut. Lyman is licensed to practice law in the state of Florida, including in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Lyman has received an "AV Preeminent" rating from Martindale Hubbel, which indicates the highest possible rating for legal ability and ethical standards as determined by his peers.
Since 2005, Lyman has concentrated his practice in the areas of real estate litigation, civil/commercial litigation, and government and municipal law. Lyman has represented homeowners throughout South Florida in disputes with financial institutions, construction companies, other homeowners, tenants, condominium and homeowner associations, and government entities at all levels. Lyman has also represented individuals and various business entities in civil and commercial disputes arising out of contractual disputes and other business-related matters, including from initial pre-suit negotiations through trial and successful appeal.
Lyman began his legal career with Pratt & Whitney’s Military Engines Division in E. Hartford, Connecticut, where he worked with the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), including the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Lyman also participated in negotiations between Pratt and domestic and international vendors related to the sale of military arms, including jet engines. Thereafter, Lyman worked with the Contract Development & Control division of the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners monitoring County contracts for compliance with federal, state, and local regulations, as well as reviewing Invitations for Bids (IFBs), Requests for Proposals (RFPs), bonds and insurance certificates, among other documents. Lyman’s experience at Pratt and Palm Beach County enabled him to acquire significant knowledge of the aerospace and defense industries, as well as the government contracting process, generally.
Lyman is a third-generation native of Palm Beach County, Florida, and grandson of the County's first Fire Chief, L.S. Bradford, a master machinist who established the Military Trail Volunteer Fire Department in 1949 and served in that capacity without pay until his death in 1970.
