Highly Recommended!
I could not have been more pleased with the services I received. I am from out of state but, due to circumstances of the case, had to hire a lawyer from Nebraska. I have worked for and with many attorneys and can honestly say that Timothy was by far the best. He was very informative, responsive, fair, knowledgeable, experienced and efficient. I always knew he was on top of everything and he always kept me informed. Not only was he trustworthy but it was also apparent from the start that he cares more about his clients than the money and will guide you accordingly. His experience and knowledge of the law and courtroom was evident. I would highly recommend Timothy Sullivan to anyone looking for a experienced, exceptional lawyer who is worth more than what he charges!

T. Sullivan
He worked with the insurance companies from my car accident so I didn't have to deal with them. He was always available to talk to if I had questions or concerns and always answered calls/emails in a very timely manner. I would definitely recommend him.

Custody case
Tim represented me when I was fighting for custody of my daughter. He not only helped me get 50/50 legal and physical custody, but also helped get my child support to only $100/month (and that was only necessary because of the arrangement that allowed her mother to carry health insurance). Tim did an outstanding job in and out of the court room, and even helped me with another matter since. I highly recommend his services if you're in need of a reliable attorney who will vet the job done. Thanks for everything you did Tim, I appreciate what you were able to accomplish for me.
