This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspension stayed means the attorney has been suspended, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements.
Public reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

Working with Tim Shimko was problematic and unpleasant at best. Not only did he share confidential information with the opposing counsel when asked not to do so, he didn't follow through with details, as he agreed to.
He was unnecessarily belligerent and arrogant in his dealings with everyone- from opposing counsel to his client. And sadly, his strategies seemed flawed with less than successful results. I could not recommend him in good conscience. There are smarter, more effective and easier to deal with attorneys out there. A person going through litigation shouldn't be googling "anger disorders" in an attempt to understand their own attorney!

Used this "lawyer" on a commercial case years ago. Instantly shuffled it off to associate, who was competent. Associate left for greener pastures & the case was run by a paralegal. Was very unresponsive & just wanted his check so he lost interest & lowballed a settlement with a million excuses to accept. By then I was sick of excuses & condescending tone. The biggest laugh was when I got his itemized settlement expenses where he billed me for a $50+ lunch. Wow, hang on to your wallet.

Interacting with Mr. Shimko was absolutely horrible and I would advise any future
clients to stay as far away as possible. He was recently sanctioned by the Ohio Supreme Court
and it is a good thing. He did not follow through with what he said he would do in the discovery phase and refused to return my file at the end. He has a bad temper and turned it on me unnecessarily.
