About Me


Timothy M. Kolman, Esquire

Mr. Kolman was born in London, England and received his first law degree from the University of Glasgow in Scotland where he graduated with high honors. His second law degree was awarded from the University of Pennsylvania Law School where he was an Editor of the Law Review. Mr. Kolman is a member of the bars of the United States Supreme Court, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the United States District Court for the Eastern District and the Western District of Pennsylvania.


An accomplished and highly experienced lawyer, Mr. Kolman has counseled hundreds of clients through complicated employment matters. A combat veteran who genuinely cares for his clients, Mr. Kolman prides himself on his tenacity, availability and his extensive trial skills, believing that the employees who he represents deserve an equal shot against the big corporations and their blue chip law firms.
