Michael J. Lyons (1949-2021)
In memory of our beloved founder, mentor, and friend, Michael J. Lyons who passed away on December 9, 2021. We will all miss his wit, his stories, and his friendship.
Michael received his law degree from Widener Law School in 1976 by studying at night while working full-time at Wanamaker’s in Center City Philadelphia. After graduating law school, he worked for corporate law firms, but soon realized his need to break away and start his own practice, which he did in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. Betting $200 on an Eagles game to continue paying the rent for one of his early offices (they won), Michael eventually found his way to his first partner in law, Steve Lagoy, to form Lagoy & Lyons, LLC. He got his big break when he handled the zoning and land development for the Glen Eagle Shopping Center.
For more than 30 years, Michael J. Lyons represented businesses and individuals throughout the Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania area and beyond. His practice concentrated primarily on real estate matters and estate planning.
Michael was a fixture in the community as a well-known and respected real estate attorney. It’s hard to find a building in West Chester, Chadds Ford, or the surrounding area that has not been touched by Michael’s diligent pen.
Outside the office, Michael enjoyed playing golf and was an avid Villanova basketball fan.
