William T. Fleming

also known as Tim Fleming

About me

William “Tim” Fleming is a criminal defense and family law attorney in State College, Pennsylvania, with over 31 years of experience in both prosecution and defense of criminal cases, and family law representation. 


            As a former Assistant District Attorney, and First Assistant District Attorney in Centre County, Tim has a unique perspective as a criminal defense lawyer, and is intimately acquainted with the tactics used by aggressive prosecutors.  Tim understands that the best defense is the ability to anticipate and know the offense against a client in criminal court.


            Tim has owned and operated his own law office in State College for over fourteen years. Prior to that, he was a partner in the law firm of Lee, Martin, Green and Reiter in Centre County for sixteen years. He started his career in criminal law in Centre County in 1984.


            Tim has handled difficult, high level criminal defense cases in Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Huntingdon, Mifflin, Juniata, Perry, Union and Snyder Counties.  He is the father of two college graduates- a daughter who is a graduate Susquehanna University and a son who is a graduate of Penn State University, in State College, PA.  Tim understands a parents’ and student’s investment in a college education and the value of protecting that asset from the stigma of a criminal record as the result of criminal charges.  He has represented his student clients in Student Conduct review conferences at Penn State for over twenty years, and is familiar with the student disciplinary proceedings at other universities such as Bucknell University, and Susquehanna University.


            Tim has also been an active participant in pro bono representation for Mid Penn Legal Services and the Centre County Women’s Resource center, and has been the current President for the Centre For Alternatives To Community Justice for the past four years, and a past member of the Board of Directors for the State Theatre, both in State College, Pennsylvania.


            Tim also practices Collaborative Divorce and Family Law, and is an active member of the Collaborative Practice Group- Central Counties Collaborative Law Community in the Centre region.  He is also a Member of the Centre County, Pennsylvania, and Middle District Federal Court Bars.



            Tim has been a resident of Centre County for all of his thirty one years of professional practice in law.
