First and best lawyer i ever hired
So many lawyers turned down the job because i heard no one ever had won against this employer i had to appeal the decision they tried to play me till the end but my lawyer mr Belt just gave them questions that they answered and basically “fried them with their own boiling oil” at the end coudnt ask for a better outcome if youre looking for best and straight to the point attorney here he is.

Best lawyer I’ve ever worked with
Tim is the best lawyer that I’ve worked with. I’ve had three divorce attorneys, two division of property attorneys, an auto accident lawyer and am presently suing my former employer for ageism and slander - in addition to workers comp initiation and termination. Out of 8-9 different lawyers Tim Belt was the only one that I was and am still thrilled to have worked with. My workers comp case was settled last year and I had a question today - Tim called me back in less than an hour despite his busy schedule with current clients. My only wish is that Tim could have handled all my legal issues as he is the only one I am totally satisfied with - at any price - there’s none better than Tim Belt

Underdog's Attorney
When no one else would help me and I was hurt, he did. He got me a 75k settlement for my CTS and trigger fingers. He fought for me against a huge billion dollar defense contractor. I was denied a third party WC admin who paid big bucks for doctors and ergo specialist to say my injury wasn't work related.

Thank you very much. It was my honor to help.

Works Hard for his Clients
Mr. Belt is an excellent attorney..I based this not just on winning or losing a case...He is very thorough and I could have not asked for a better attorney...There was nothing he could have done better while he represented me on a unemployment case...My first appeal hearing we lost...I proceeded to the second stage of appeal to Board of Review...He gave a excellent deposition on my behalf....Whether I won or lost wasn't my issue...He did everything humanly possible to help me with my unemployment case...Thats all anyone could ask for....There was never a question in my mind on whether he had missed a key point in my hearing or proceedings....I was wronfully terminated and held accountable for a rule violation that I had never committed... My hearing in Scranton, Pa was conducted by a Bias Referee who was personal friends with my prior employer, so because of that, I was denied my Benefits on purpose .... Finally after my higher appeal to Harrisburg Board of Review , Justice pervailed and I got a fair chance....Mr. Belt called me on the evening he received the judgement....He was very excited to tell me, but I was more excited for him because he had went up against a near impossible government court and had won his case ....In the end we all had one something...Even if I did not win, i have no complaints about Mr. Timothy Belt, he did his very best....

Gets the job done
One of the things I like most about Attorney Timothy Belt is the fact that he provides great communication with his clients. He is easy to get in contact with, returns calls promptly and keeps me informed as to what is going on with my case frequently and regularly. Questions and concerns are adressed quickly also. He makes one feel as though you and your case are important to him. He is very approachable and easy to talk to.
