About me

Tim Sanders was born and raised in Marysville, Michigan, where he graduated third in his class at Marysville High School in 1996. He attended the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, majoring in political science. He received his Juris Doctorate from Michigan State University – Detroit College of Law in 2003, graduating in the top 25% of his class. 

While in law school, Tim received the Book Award in Professional Responsibility, which is given to the student who demonstrates outstanding scholastic achievement in a particular aspect of law. He also was a recipient of the Dean King Scholarship for high academic achievement. 

Following graduation from law school, Tim practiced law for nearly four years at the medium-sized law firm of O’Neill, Wallace & Doyle, P.C., in Saginaw, Michigan. His practice primarily consisted of insurance defense, contract actions, policy disputes, social security disability appeals, and asbestos litigation. In April of 2007, Tim relocated to Tampa, Florida. 

He decided to represent injured plaintiffs rather than minimizing the claims of injured plaintiffs on behalf of insurance companies. He began working in June 2007 as a Case Manager at Burnetti, P.A., while studying for the Florida Bar Exam. Tim passed the Florida Bar Exam and was admitted to the Florida Bar in May of 2009. At that point, he began practicing plaintiff personal injury law as an attorney at Burnetti, P.A, where. He represented injured plaintiffs in all facets of personal injury claims, ranging from presuit to litigation. Tim has participated in eight jury trials in Florida in the counties of Polk, Orange, and Highlands. 

Tim began working for Ligori & Cappy in March of 2013. He is an active member of the Florida Bar, Michigan Bar, Hillsborough County Bar Association, Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association, and Florida Justice Association. He is also admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
