Tug Wyler. A dogged and irreverent NYC personal injury and medical malpractice attorney. He is at home on the streets as he is in the courtroom … and larger than life in both places.  

Once you have met him, you won’t ever forget him.

He lives by a few simple philosophical precepts. Here is the short list:

~ Know what you know and know what you don’t know.

~ Don’t dabble in matters of significant consequence.

~ If you’re a light sleeper and knowingly marry a snorer it’s your fault.

~ Own a dog.

~ Take the path of least resistance unless it really matters.

~ Know your balance and be mindful of change.

~ Accept what is.

~ If you can’t control “it,” don’t let “it” control you.

~ Trust is absolute.

~ If you lie, be truthful about it.

~ Stay away from dishonest liars.

~ Don’t be an annoying phony, there’s no other kind.

~ You have the power not to consent.

~ Negative energy comes back to its source.

~ Don’t harm others.

~ You’re not entitled to crap, so lose the attitude.

~ Own two dogs.

~ Stay in the moment.

~ We all profile, but don’t use it to pass judgment.

~ Know, acknowledge and embrace your flaws.

~ Make your faults known so you don’t disappoint others by being yourself.

~ We’re drawn to what is familiar, so make sure whatever that is won’t keep you down.

~ Beware of empathic listeners who hug you with their words – they have motive.

~ Don’t trap yourself in ambivalent relationships.

~ Everything is fair.

~ You are how you’ve acted so own your conduct.

~ When someone shows you who they are, believe them.

~ Own three dogs.
