About Me

CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE; CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE.


 


Mr. Clinton is a well-rounded attorney with experience in a broad range of legal fields.  He is an experienced litigator, an entrepreneur and has served as an in-house general counsel. 


 


As a litigator, his approach is to prepare each case as if it will go to trial.  Ironically, being genuinely willing and able to take a case to trial often leads to more favorable settlements.  Mr. Clinton has successfully represented clients in disputes all over the United States.


 


As an advisor, Mr. Clinton’s experience as an entrepreneur and general counsel helps him understand his client’s needs from their perspective, while his litigation background allows him to better anticipate what could go wrong with any deal.

  • Benjamin S Haley

    Tim is a gifted lawyer and a fantastic colleague. I had the pleasure of working extensively with him on a major piece of section 1983 litigation. His work was top notch and he laid the groundwork for a fantastic settlement. He's a skilled advocate, a great writer, and he's got a sharp and creative legal mind. I look forward to the chance to work him again in the future.
