About Timothy

Learn Timothy’s areas of practice.

Timothy was born in Philadelphia and later attended West Chester University.  After obtaining his Bachelor of Science in Business Management, Timothy returned to Philadelphia where he attended Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law.

Since 2015, Timothy has worked primarily on family law matters, including divorce, custody, support, and other family-related cases.  Timothy has developed a variety of litigation skills in his early career through regular court appearances in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. 

Timothy is certified by the Institute of Divorce Financial Analysts as a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA®). The Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts (IDFA™) is the premier national organization dedicated to the certification, education and promotion of the use of financial professionals in the divorce arena. This certification denotes Timothy as highly proficient in the area of financial matters regarding family law.

He consistently shows his adversaries that he is as comfortable in the courtroom as he is in the office.  Timothy’s critical analysis enables him to give his clients as many options regarding their case as possible, allowing the client to choose the litigation strategies that suit their specific goals.

Timothy approaches difficult family matters tactically, focusing on settling disputes and preventing others from happening altogether.  He strives to maximize his client’s legal rights and entitlements and develops resolutions that satisfy his adversaries.

In addition to family law, Timothy has experience with various personal injury matters.  He was the coauthor of an Appellate Brief to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania, in which he argued the misapplication of the Rules of Civil Procedure.  The Superior Court ultimately reversed the trial court’s decision with respect to that issue.

Timothy demonstrates continued commitment to the community and has spent countless hours championing the legal rights of the underprivileged.  During law school, he volunteered at the Pennsylvania Innocence Project, an organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted prisoners.

Thank you, Tim!!
As a man and a father going into the Philadelphia Family Court system in a contested divorce, the odds are stacked against you. You will face an archaic, disorganized court administration that considers husbands guilty until proven innocent. You will face biased, drunk with power judges, who are more concerned with proving their liberal bona fides and getting re-elected, rather than looking at the facts and following the law. Tim has been there with me every step of the way. He was always available to talk to me and to guide me through an emergency situation. Tim's strategy helped us neutralize the idiotic decisions made by a family court judge. Tim is straight and honest. He gives you his best legal and common sense opinion. He doesn't play dirty games as many bottom-feeding divorce attorneys do. Tim ensures that everything is done by a legal cannon and, at the end of the day, his approach wins. Tim's legal and negotiating skills are hard to match. Working in a very challenging legal environment, he has achieved an amazing result for me and my daughter. Tim's personality, his legal talent and ability make him a rising star in a legal community. I would give him more stars, if I could! Thank you, Tim!!

Extremely Professional & Honest Attorney/Firm
I have been dealing with Zlock Law since a little before Tim joined the Firm. Everyone at Zlock Firm is exceptional and professional at what they do. However, even tho Kevin is amazing, Tim has been my “go to” attorney through multiple visits to Bucks County courthouse. Without him I would not have achieved what I have “custody wise” with my step children and my biological daughter. It was and still is a very tough thing to go through but it’s easier to deal with when you have an attorney like Tim that basically lays all possible outcomes in front of you prior. Tim is exceptional at what he knows and he is also upfront, honest and also compassionate. I highly recommend Tim to anyone with difficult custody or family issues.

Thank God For Tim !
I was recently faced with a legal matter and consulted with and hired Tim. Tim’s understanding of Family Law is Outstanding. He took the time necessary to prepare for a court hearing and knew every aspect of the legal process. As a result of Tim’s knowledge and expertise, the case was dismissed by the Judge. Way To Go Tim !

I could never thank Attorney Grisillo enough!
My custody battle has been the scariest and most stressful experience of my life. I would never be at the point I am now in my fight for my children without Timothy Grisillo. Tim has fought for my children and I beyond all expectations. Tim's knowledge and "know how" is impressive to say the least. The emotional toll when fighting for custody is indescribable for me but Tim helped me stay on track and focus. Tim did this not just as the professional I hired but also as a man that genuinely cares about his clients. Timothy Grisillo has stood by me many times in court. Tim helped me win increased time with my biological son. Where other attorneys told me I would lose, Tim helped me win Loco Parentis standing for my non biological son. As it is the court who decides how much time you get with your children it is a very scary and stressful experience. Tim's professionalism, composure, and obvious dedication to your case makes you feel safe and well taken care of while you are in the court room. Never at any moment over a whole year of having Tim as my attorney did i feel like "I just had a lawyer". I felt like I had the "best" laywer and a good friend fighting for my children and I with everything they had. I am very grateful to of been represented by Timothy Grissillo and the caring people at Zlock Family Law. As my fight continues I know I am in good hands.

Great Lawyer
You wrote a review for Zlock & Coverdale A moment ago 5.0 star rating9/30/2019 Lets admit that going to court is not fun for any one, especially family court. There are always two sides to every story, there are children involved, and there are always true and untrue accusations and allegations made against both parties involved. With all of the stress one may have to deal with during the physical part of the breakup of a family, it's no wonder Emotions are high! This is where Zlock and Coverdale come in to play. Not only do they fight for the right of the child, but they do so in a manner that is professional and understanding to both their client and the Judge. Believe me when I say this, those are the only two people that matter. Tim Grisillo has been my lawyer for the whole time that I have had to attend Bucks county court. He has been an excellent Lawyer and an even better teacher when it comes to showing me how to strategize my emotions in a way that the court can actually see through all the "he said/she said" and cut right down to the point that I am a good Parent. Not only did Tim make the Judge realize that I am a good parent, but he also helped me with acquiring the time and days that I needed/ wanted with my child. Tim has been there for me even on his vacation! I mean, come on, this guy answered my phone call while he was on the beach. What lawyer does that? Definitely not a five star rated one, I can tell you that much. Although my custody order is now in place and It was a long hard fight to get it. I am glad I had the right team on my side to do so. If I need to go back to court again in bucks county, best believe I will use Zlock and Coverdale. In the end, not only am I satisfied with the results that Zlock and Coverdale help me achieve, but my daughter will be happy too. That is whats most important.

Excellent attorney and law firm
Over the past three years, I have been involved in a custody battle with my children's mother that has been incredibly overwhelming. During that time period I had been represented by both Zlock and Coverdale and was always immensely impressed by their professionalism and ability to move mountains in a court room. That being said, over the past several months, the situation escalated to the point where the Zlock and Coverdale firm assisted in filing a petition for contempt hearing and I was represented by Timothy Grisillo on the day of court. Although, I was extremely uneasy being represented by an unfamiliar face, I was not disappointed by the outcome and would recommend his assistance to anyone looking for an attorney worth the money.

Extremely Competent
I found Tim to be very competent and I am extremely happy with the outcome that he helped me get. I did not make it easy for him but was still able to get a positive result for me anyway. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Competent attorney
Tim Grisillo represented me in the matter requiring Court appearance. He was calm, confident and was clearly at easy in dealing with the opposing side. It was entirely not a stressful event, and the outcome was positive, exactly as I wanted it to be.
