Tylan Ricketts

Tylan Ricketts is originally from a small town in Southwest Kansas. He and his five brothers were homeschooled by his saintly mother.  From there, he attended Benedictine College and graduated with dual degrees in Philosophy and Theology. From there, he attended St. John Vianney Seminary in Denver, Colorado with the intention of being ordained a priest of the Diocese of Dodge City. God called Him out of the seminary and he entered law school at Ave Maria School of Law and graduated magna cum laude, with his Juris Doctorate. He is licensed in Florida and practices estate planning, probate, and business formation at Willis and Davidow, LLC in Naples, Florida. He is an inaugural member of the Southwest Florida Catholic Lawyers Association.  After law school, Tylan married his fellow classmate, (Kelly) and instantly became a step-father to her beautiful daughter. After Kelly's untimely death in 2020, Tylan still maintains a close relationship with his stepdaughter, and teaches her Sunday School class.
