About Timothy

Learn Timothy’s areas of practice.

I am a commercial real estate attorney who represents businesses and individuals in court litigating business disputes, contract enforcement actions, replevins for commercial lenders, summary dispossess matters in a commercial setting (representing landlords or tenants), commercial collection matters,  construction liens, disputes in connection with the sale or purchase of commercial real estate, and other real estate related matters. I have extensive experience trying cases in State and Federal courts in New Jersey. In addition, I have substantial experience in residential and commercial real estate transactions including contract and lease negotiations, and land use and zoning applications. Having this combination of transactional and litigation background is invaluable in advising clients who are trying to stay out of court, and representing those clients who happen to find themselves in court.

Tim McKeown was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him.
Prior to my engaging with Tim regarding a commercial legal issue, I hadn't been exposed much to the legal process. Tim brought not just a great depth of knowledge to the process, but he was able to give me a clear and simple understanding of what was happening on a level that I could relate to. He was terrific at guiding me through each step of the process and managing my expectations. He also did a really great job of inspiring my confidence. Extremely professional, easy to talk to, Tim was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him.

The most I ever learned was from Tim.
Tim was first my attorney for a relatively minor landlord tenant case. He quickly demonstrated his professionalism, patience and knowledge of the law and became my attorney for my business. Tim's counsel proved invaluable to me and I credit him for making my business a success. His friendship and support at the time of the death of my husband proved beyond measure the capacity and committment that this man possesses. Tim has been my attorney for over 10 years.

Commercial Real Estate Negotiations
Tim is very knowledgeable and brings alot of common sense to the negotiations. I found him to be pragmatic and to the point on the issues. I used him to review Employee Contracts, Franchise Agreements, Franchise Transfers and Real Estate Negotiations. I found his negotiation skills to have been better than most in obtaining the best possible scenarios for my firm. He is very approachable and is my first resource for any work in NJ.
