Hello! I think it’s important to tell you a little bit about myself given how important hiring an attorney is. I have been licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania since 2014. I have extensive experience in criminal defense, civil litigation, personal injury and workers’ compensation matters. I attended law school at Widener University School of Law in Wilmington, DE where I graduated with honors and finished in the top twenty percent of my class while earning Dean’s List Honors and Certificates of Achievement in several subjects.


I grew up in West Chester attending SS. Simon & Jude and then Bishop Shanahan High School in Downingtown. I attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan where I graduated summa cum laude while earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation Flight Science. I hold multiple pilot certificates including a commercial pilot certificate and certified flight instructor privileges.


After I earned my bachelor’s degree, I felt a desire and an ability to do more for people. I enrolled in law school the following year. I began my legal career as an unpaid student intern at a small law office in West Chester. Through hard work and determination, I earned a position as an Associate Attorney. There, I learned to advocate on behalf of those injured in accidents, as well as those facing criminal prosecution.


After several years of hard work that firm, I took my experience and joined a large firm specializing in insurance defense in Allentown. I quickly discovered that the drive I had for law and my desire to help people were not being fulfilled when my clients were large insurance carriers. I decided to take that experience on the “other side” and use it to my advantage and to the advantage of those injured in accidents. I have appeared in almost every district and county court in the region and worked on behalf of hundreds of clients facing a variety of legal hurdles.


I currently reside in Northampton. I am an avid fan of both the Philadelphia Phillies and the Philadelphia Eagles. I have a background in music, and I have played concert piano since 4th grade. I also have a passion for animals, and I am the proud father of two adopted pets: a dog named Nox and a three-legged cat named Jaco.

Great representative for inexperienced people when it comes to law
Tim was a great representative throughout my whole trial. He was there whenever my family or myself had questions or whenever we had any doubts. This was my first (and last) offense which means I was very lost when figuring out what exactly I had gotten myself into. Tim was very helpful in making me understand exactly what was expected of me in court and when filling out paperwork for my case. With his help I got into ARD, something I really thank him for as I had to go through reconsideration after my case was denied at first. He made sure to keep in contact with everyone who could possibly help me and was very quick at answering and sending me emails regarding updates on my case. Overall, I had a very pleasant experience with him and he made this process feel easier than what I had expected.

Responsive and Dedicated Lawyer
So grateful for everything Tim and his associates have done for me! It was my first, and hopefully my last, time going to court for a traffic violation and I had no idea what to expect or what course of action was best for me. Tim was very helpful in addressing all of my questions and concerns in a prompt and thorough manner. I can not recommend Tim Kraeer enough!

Victory lap
Tim definitely deserves a victory lap on this case. I called around and spoke to a dozen lawyers about my case and everyone of them kind of shot me down and discouraged me I never received a speeding ticket in my life in one day I received a speeding ticket wish I knew for sure I was not speeding because I barely do the speed limit. The whole situation about how I received a ticket was very odd a silver F150 sped past me and my truck which is a black Dodge ram and seconds later I’m being pulled over for speeding so I said nothing to the officer just took the ticket and called A dozen or so or Attorneys who all but gave me hope but when I spoke to Tim I felt as if he actually believed me he explained it to me in detail what could possibly happen but when I got to the hearing he had me pull into the parking lot and sat in my truck I was expecting to go in and see the judge about 15 minutes later he came out and we met for the first time he looked at me and said not guilty and I said thank you very much I cannot believe that this happened so fast and without me even going in to see the judge thank you Tim You definitely have a great career ahead of you

Excellent lawyer, easy to work with
I had a fender bender in my neighborhood, where the other driver initially asked to "just forget it" so we didn't exchange insurance. A year later, he decided to report it to his insurance and they came after me for thousands. I approached Mr. Kraeer with questions about what my options were, and he made several clear and helpful suggestions. Fortunately, we didn't have to go to court, but only because I had Mr. Kraeer in my corner to help guide me to the right decision about how to handle it. He is honest about what is and is not relevant or will help build a case (yours and theirs), very knowledgeable with regard to all aspects of the law, and easy to work with. He is a great listener, and explains things very clearly in terms I was able to easily understand. I would definitely recommend him as a first stop for legal advice, and if your case goes to court, hiring as your lawyer.

Very Grateful
To my attorney Tim, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for all the care and concern you have shown me, and for working tirelessly to ensure that the law worked in our favor. If it weren’t for your analytical skills and knowledge, the matter wouldn’t have been settled by now. Thanks once again for your legal advice, time, and efforts!

Outstanding service
I came to Mr. Kraeer for help with a criminal charge that I was facing. From the start, Mr. Kraeer was attentive, caring, and thoughtful toward my matter. I appreciated this because the situation was sensitive, and I was embarrassed. Mr. Kraeer was prompt and answered all of the questions that I had. He thoroughly explained various scenarios regarding the outcome of the charge in a way that was clear and factual. Mr. Kraeer went above and beyond in my opinion in terms of representation. I felt safe, secure, and confident in his leadership and pedagogical knowledge regarding Pennsylvania law. He exceeded my expectations in every way. I would not hesitate to contact him again for his services, and I highly recommend him as a lawyer.
