  • Jason F. Hahn

    Tim is an excellent litigator on a wide range of practice areas, as well as a very talented and intelligent appellate practitioner and legal writer. I worked with him several years ago on a number of cases and he truly cares about his clients and their well-being, and is tenacious in pursuing their interests. I would recommend him highly for employment law matters, criminal defense, commercial and construction litigation, as well Federal litigation and the various other practice areas in which he has expertise. He has particular experience in representing both individuals and business entities.

Professional Misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Censure
    issued in AZ, 2001


    Censure means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State censures the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

    Tim’s comment: “This was a reprimand dating back to 1997 when I failed to attend two court appearances while being admitted to the hospital for a life-threatening condition. No clients were impacted by my absences. The court hearings were rescheduled.”
