    I graduated law school with Tim several years ago and have asked for advice from him countless times on real estate matters and oil and gas issues. Tim's advice has always been extremely knowledgeable and considers both regulations and case law. On a personal note - Tim also prepared my will for me and navigated slightly complex tenant in common issue. I highly recommend Tim for any legal issue.
