Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    30%
    Personal injury can occur under many circumstances, whether in a car accident, at a business or work site, as a result of an assault, because of a defective product, or for many other reasons or accidents. If you were injured and it was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. My personal injury practice includes brain injuries, wrongful death, slip/trip and fall cases, malicious prosecution, and false imprisonment.

    41 years

  2. Car accident
    20%
    Vehicle accidents can result in property damage, injury, pain and suffering (known legally as "non-economic damages"), and lost wages. If the accident was not your fault, you may be entitled to damages in all those categories. Your spouse also may have a claim because of your injury.

    41 years

  3. Insurance
    17%
    I represent clients whose insurance company has denied coverage, whose insurance is subject to a high deductible, or whose policy does not provide complete coverage.

    41 years

  4. Litigation
    15%
    My litigation practice involves negligence cases including motor vehicle accidents, premises injuries, false arrest/false imprisonment and malicious prosecution, construction site injuries, wrongful death, libel & slander, traumatic brain and other catastrophic injuries, products liability involving defective design and manufacture, breach of warranty claims, breach of contract claims, and bicycle and pedestrian accidents. My practice also extends to other areas where lawsuits arise.

    41 years

  5. Defective and dangerous products
    9%
    A defective product could be equipment, an appliance, medication you take, or anything else someone has manufactured. And it does not have to be something you personally bought. If it had a defect that caused damage or injury, you may be entitled to compensation.

    37 years

  6. Wrongful death
    9%
    If a family member died because of someone else's negligence, the estate of that person (the decedent), as well as family members who were dependent on that person may qualify for compensation for that loss.Contact me for a free consultation.

    39 years

After more than 20 years working "on the inside" as staff counsel for major insurance companies, I decided it was time to help others by using that experience and information. Now my clients have the benefit of that experience. Call me at for a free consultation.

Best Attorney
Tim was there for me when no other attorney saw promise in my case. He was patient with me as well as understanding in my circumstances. He helped me to understand all of my options and eventually got my case dismissed. I cant recommend him enough.

Excellent Attorney
It was a slip and fall case. Tim was very precise and guided us very well through the entire process. He gave us excellent advice without being pushy about his opinion. He did everything in a very timely manner without us asking him about it. Not only was he the only attorney willing to take the case, he helped us win! We would recommend Tim very highly!

Legal Road Map
I'd like to thank Mr. Fizer for his kindness in taking the time to explain all the various legal aspects associated with my type of situation. He obviously possesses an expertise in personal injury matters, facts and knowledge necessary for helping a prospective client in making a decision on whether to pursue their case or not. All the bases were covered in my initial consultation, and I felt confident that the counsel I received was accurate and complete. If you believe you have a problem with medical negligence or personal injury of any kind, I suggest you speak with an competent and experienced attorney such as Mr. Timothy Fizer.

Awesome
I was the target of a frivilous lawsuit and Tim was outstanding in educating me on my options, strategies and choices to make. While the situation was painful, time consuming and annoying, Tim represented me well including entertaining me with a verbal slap down of the opposition attorney at a deposition. His relaxed demeanor with court officials and competence was a relief in an otherwise tense situation. I would highly recommend him for litigations of that nature.
