My case was complicated by the politics of the Family Court. Tim got to know the details of my case. He made sure that when a motion was brought to court on my behalf, he was prepared to win. He is respectful of the court. Gets to know the players of the case. He does his homework thoroughly. He does not give you false hope. He speaks straight up to you. I would absolutely recommend him. I wish I started my divorce out with him.

Tim and his team were the only lawyers I've worked with who understand and use Excel spreadsheets, online document sharing, and even projectors in court to more easily organize and help the judge, and even the forensic accountants -understand the facts of the case. The financials were complex, involving multiple currencies, countries and languages.
He also did the best and most thorough prep I've ever received before I had to go on the stand. I've been deposed several times before and wish he had prepped me then.
Lastly, we ended up with a pretty good resolution to the then two-year-long case. No divorce case ends perfectly, but I think this result was fair to both parties while not wasting too many more weeks in trial.
