Chosen by D Magazine as one of the Best Lawyers in Dallas, Tim’s mission on every case is always to get the insurance company of the defendant to pay top dollar for his client’s case, which allows his clients to put the maximum amount of money into their pocket.
In addition to being licensed as an Attorney at Law by the Supreme Court of Texas, Tim is a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association for Justice, both of which advocate and advance the rights of injured victims against insurance companies. “When you see the type of abuse insurance companies deal out to people by refusing to pay legitimate claims and when you see them offer pennies on the dollar, it gives me a lot of satisfaction to make sure our clients are paid fairly. In many cases we can get insurance companies to pay 10 to 50 times the amount of their original offers,” Tim states.
As a young man, Tim learned the value of hard work by working long hours for his father’s construction company. This lesson helps him every day as he engages in the hard work it takes to properly develop a case.
Tim received a BBA degree with a concentration in Finance from Southern Methodist University and a Juris Doctor (law degree) from South Texas College of Law. He lives in Plano, Texas, with his wife, Quyen Tate, and their two children where they are members of Prestonwood Baptist Church. During non-working hours Tim can frequently be found on a basketball court or soccer field with his children. Tim is involved in a number of charities through the “Making Lives Better” section of this website.
