    Tim did a great job holding my feet to the fire! He was opposing counsel in a DC family case involving military family issues, and complex custody challenges. He was not only professional, but he was fair, and demonstrated excellent client management. He gave enough to keep the negotiations going, but held back enough to ensure his client was ably represented. Through his work, both parties saved on the cost of a full trial. I might also add that he has a good sense of humor, is entirely approachable, and knows the law cold. When he is unsure about a given fact or reference, he indicates it and requests time to research the matter. Refreshingly civil and easy going, I highly recommend Tim to anyone seeking representation in family law in DC or MD.
