About Me

Active family man.  Two kids, many sports hobbies.  I strive to ensure that my clients will be there for their families as well.  I understand how important that goal is. 


Among my hobbies is flying small airplanes.  I am happy to take a case some distance away.  Out of town cases have the added benefit of being able to log some time flying there.  I will appear for the court hearings, and will always be completely prepared.  Some attorneys miss important issues concerning the client, the facts of the case, or the applicable law.  That will not happen with me.  I am conscientious about the representation, and have a strong support team.

  • Jack Jay Boltax

    I have known Tim professionally for many years. He is dedicated, persistent, extremely knowledgeable and personable/ He has all of the characteristics of a top notch criminal defense litigator. He gets better plea bargains and lower sentences for his clients than other attorneys that I know. He has excellent trial skills as well. He gets along very well with judges and prosecutors, making it easier to get his clients good results. If I were in trouble I'd hire him to get me out of a jam.
