I DEFEND PEOPLE ACCUSED BY THE FEDS. IF THE FEDS COME KNOCKING, I'M HERE TO HELP.
  • I defend individuals and companies under investigation for or charged with federal and serious state court offenses. Successes include dismissals of tax evasion charges and of federal drug conspiracy charges (after pretrial suppression of all evidence); trial acquittals of charges of failure to file tax returns and of alleged violations of the Lacey Act (involving the buying and selling of tigers); decisions not to prosecute after federal investigation of FCPA -- Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, of various federal fraud charges, of environmental crimes, of mortgage fraud, and of drug possession with intent to distribute; and, a drastically reduced federal sentence after appeal to the United States Supreme Court, which reversed and remanded an Armed Career Criminal Act mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years, resulting instead in a sentence of “time served” (just under four years).  Defend individuals and companies accused of Covid-related fraud, including PPP Loan fraud.

Timothy received a significant number of 4+ stars in 2017

Thorough, kind, professional
Tim and his assistant Dan are fantastic. My company and I were being investigated through the federal government. I retained a high profile, well-known criminal law firm in Newark NJ and was not a priority and the firm seemed uninterested in assisting me - just being paid, and getting my case resolved for them as fast as possible. After some research I learned I could secure another attorney to represent me. I spoke to several and felt Tim was the most genuine. He offered hours of his time, prior to asking for a retainer. Tim did more in two weeks then the other law firm did in 2 months. Tim and his team provided much needed, emotional support, legal advice and understanding during the investigation. Once I obtained the services of Timothy Anderson - the prosecutor and his team spoke twice - and never contacted him again. I feel confident that his diligence, knowledge and level of expertise would have led to a favorable decision if my case did progress. My advice - if you ever find yourself a subject of a criminal investigation - interview the attorney, read reviews, and pay whatever it takes. Big high profile firms that represent individuals on TV (housewives), may not be your best option.

Amazing Attorney
From the moment we spoke Tim & his colleague Dan gave me a sense of calmness as they would bear the stress and work towards a favorable and successful outcome which allowed me to focus on my family. At all times Tim and Dan was always their to answer any questions and fully walked myself and my family through the overhaul process. Tim is 1000% committed to his client and constantly running with ideas/scenarios to ensure the outcome is favorable. I truly am grateful to them both for leading this case to an amazing outcome! They are the team to have your back when you need it!!

Very thorough and helpful
Mr. Anderson went over the details of my case with me, as well as contacting the agencies involved to try to understand the situation I was in. He interviewed my as length to understand all that had occurred, and thankfully nothing came of the case. He helped to keep me calm and rational during everything that occurred, and that was something that was also very needed during that time.

Tim is an honest hard working lawyer that you would want on your side. I brought him my federal case after leaving another attorney. He helped me through a long drawn out case that i couldn't be happier with the end result. He is very knowledgeable in federal law and he is a genuinely nice person. I would highly recommend Tim as he is a top notch attorney.

Excellent Fereral Attorney
If your reading this review, you need the best legal guidance and best attorney in your corner to help you navigate the complex and slanted legal system you're being faced with.Tim Anderson is your attorney! Tim Anderson has been my attorney for over five years representing me in the most difficult and complex case imaginable. Tim is an attorney that actually cares about his clients. We worked very closely together, and yes even Sundays during the planning stages. Because of the complexity of the case, most attorneys would have gone for a settlement, collected their fee and you're screwed. Tim listened to me, knew there was merritt and knew I wanted to go to war against the Federal Government. WE worked toward that goal and got the Feds to listen to reason. Tim Anderson cares about his clients. That's who you need to represent you. The outcome!!!! Beyond favorable...Talk to Tim Anderson, you won't be sorry.

Highly recommended lawyer!
I would highly recommend Tim Anderson as your lawyer. Tim helped my mother in a difficult federal case dealing with Medicaid. My mother is an immigrant from Ukraine and was going through a hard time dealing with her previous lawyer with whom she had a serious lack of communication and understanding. It was simply too overwhelming for her to be confronted with all the complicated and confusing court dealings and not have any concrete explanation as to the law and how best to proceed. Luckily, she found Tim online and made a timely and appropriate switch of counsel. If not for Tim's painstaking effort and hard work in resolving her matter before the court; I do not think that her case would come out in any way favorable to her. If you are looking for a good and honest lawyer then you should go with Tim.

Rare to Find An Attorney Who is Considerate and Cares
I had the opportunity to discuss my legal issues with attorney Anderson, despite not meeting in person. Unlike any other attorney, I found him to review and understand my issues at hand and offered me a straight forward accurate assessment....my case is past statue of limitations.  His office did not try to shake me down for initial consultation fee. He appears to be considerate and caring at a human level and treats people in need with respect.  There are not too many attorney around who would be willing to help, without first asking "what's in it for me".  All I can say is his approach to communicate with me helped me significantly, and earned himself my respect during the encounter.

Dedicated as He is Skilled
Although we met by my very unfortunate circumstances, I was quite fortunate to have retained the skilled representation of Tim, along with the assistance of fellow attorney Dan Pedersen from his office. Tim and Dan demonstrated the upmost skill and knowledge in regards to the law, which they were just as easily able to implement into THE best possible conclusion for my case. Just as importantly, their genuine concern and attention proved that they have the best "bedside" manners of any attorneys in their field. For all the reasons above, I will be eternally grateful to them both. As such, if you are staring into the abyss of federalized version of Hell, I highly recommend their services above ANY other.

Thank you, Michael. You are a class act. I am thrilled with the result of your case, and I wish only the best to you and yours. Be well! Tim

Right lawyer for a difficult situation
A family member was stopped, questioned, searched and arrested without probable cause. Tim stood firm in his belief that an improper search and seizure would not hold up in the light of day. Through perseverance and the submission of solid legal briefs all evidence was excluded and charges expunged. I found Tim to be a calming presence in an otherwise stressful situation. He was patient when patience was called for and assertive when need be. He showed genuine caring for his client and was focused on helping us move forward with life beyond the charges at hand.

Mr. Quiros
Mr Anderson was the kindest most honest Man and Lawyer me and my family ever met. He went out of his way to meet me on a personal level with my children and wife. Every time I reached out to Mr Anderson weather day or night he either answered or got in touch with me later that day. He was so well informed of not only my case but the law! Outstanding individual. Recommend him to any and every one!
