About Me

I became an attorney because I want to help people.  If you have a legal problem, perhaps I can help you.    Please call me at (763) 450-9494 to set up an appointment to discuss your situation.


You may think that attorneys are expensive.  However, I find that the cost of not taking legal action now to protect and enforce your rights may be more costly than hiring an attorney now.  You owe it to yourself to find out what your legal options are.  Please call me at (763) 450-9494 now to set up your initial consultation.  Mention that you found my profile on Avvo to receive a special discount.


Everybody who calls gets a free mini-telephone consultation (less than 5 minutes).  There is no consultation fee for bankruptcy, criminal defense, social security, or unemployment appeal cases.  Otherwise, a 30-minute initial consultation is $75.00.  If you can't come to me, I'll come to you.  There may be an additional fee if you want to meet somewhere other than my office, even if you qualify for a free consultation.  All fees must be paid in advance of our consultation.

    I have known Tim since law school. After that I appeared in front of his judge when he was a law clerk. In addition I practiced almost daily in the district where he clerked. Tim is hardworking, dilligent and very bright. He clerked for one of the most respected judges in the 10th disctrict and handled very complex, and intricate legal work for the judge. As a result he has a well honed legal mind. Afterward I have had the opportunity to see Tim in Court on several occaisions. He is an excellent and thorough advocate for his clients. With Tim you can expect vigorous, complete and thorough representation. If there is a particularly complex legal issue, you should look no further than Tim!
