The Best
Timothy was amazing. I called him on the phone and he told me some really funny jokes. I knew this was the lawyer for me. We met at a poolhall to discuss my case. I offered to buy him a drink, but he politely declined. We ordered some pizza, and the waitress got the order wrong and brought us buffalo wings. I was pretty mad and was about to complain but Timothy told me to relax. It's evident that he really respects people. I gave Timothy a high five and he told me about some great movies. We also talked a bit more about my case. In the end, Timothy said that he couldn't take my case for personal reasons. I was a bit saddened by this but I understood. I appreciated his professionalism and thought it was a great experience even though I did not retain him. I highly recommend him.

The Law Offices of Tim O'Hare Gave Me My Happiness Back
Words can not describe how grateful I am to the entire team at The Law Offices of Tim O'Hare. In April 2017, I suffered from a personal injury that resulted in two major surgeries, one in-office procedure, and countless physical therapy sessions. The toll that this injury took on not only my finances but my mental and physical health is something that I am still struggling with two and a half years later, but thanks to Tim, Dustin, David and the rest of the team I am able to finally to start to heal from the tragic incident that had occurred. After the incident took place I was afraid to seek out help to see what options I had, but rest assured I am thankful every day that I found these incredible individuals. Every step of the way I felt secure, safe, and heard, and every question, no matter how silly it may have been, was answered with the utmost respect and detail. If you want a team that makes you feel as though you are part of a family, do not look any further than The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare. Every single person treated me as though we were long-time friends and the immediate comfort that I felt each and every time I walked into the office is something that I still appreciate. When you are going through a legal circumstance, it can be a very stressful process to work through. I can’t even fathom what this process would have been like had I not had the team that I had. Every single person worked tirelessly for over two years to get me the settlement that they thought I deserved, and the way that they took care of me along the way has had me in awe since the very beginning. Please, if you are seeking legal representation give The Law Offices of Tim O’Hare a call. I promise you that you will not find more trustworthy, compassionate, loving, selfless, sincere, intelligent and hard-working individuals to help you through this process. My life is forever changed in such a positive way because of the team, and I am so ecstatic for the future.

Best Lawyer in the DFW area!!
My experience with Tim O'Hare and his office was nothing short of amazing. I was involved in my first car wreck and had no idea where to start. With so many personal injury lawyers out there I was unsure of who to choose. I came across Tim's office and set up a consultation. From start to finish they made the process so seamless and easy. They maintained constant communication throughout the entire process and im so grateful I chose them to handle my case. Tim, Dustin and Martha are the most genuine people I have met and I am more than happy with the final result of my case!!

Car accident
I was seriously injured in a car wreck last year. From the moment I called this firm, I knew I was in good hands. They say they treat you like family - this was true. They never made me wait for an appointment, didn't let the insurance company get away with anything (although they tried), made sure my medical bills were covered and I received the wages I lost. If you are ever injured in a car wreck, you can't go wrong picking this place. This is the way professional offices should be right here. Thanks to all of you!

The BEST!
Tim and his team could not have been more professional and thorough in handling our case. Being involved in an accident while on vacation out of state creates a lot of uncertainty, especially with a toddler, and Tim immediately eased my concerns and took the lead on handling all of the details I did not have the time or knowledge to handle. I heartily and readily recommend Tim and his firm to handle any of your personal injury cases.

Multitalented Attorney
Hiring Tim was one of the best decisions I’ve made. He approached the work with tenacity, anticipated potential problems, and operated with my best interest in mind. His professionalism and energy both inspired my trust. I’ll hire Tim again in a heartbeat.

Extremely fair and competent attorney
Tim O'Hare was all I could ask for in an attorney. First and foremost, he treated my money as his own, always making the best decisions for me instead of simply running up costs and billable hours as so many attorneys do. Second, his knowledge of the applicable laws was always above and beyond, and he handled my case quickly and expertly. I would strongly recommend Tim and his law office.

Honest attorney. Excellent law firm. Great results!
I was in a car wreck and totaled my vehicle. I'd never used an attorney before and wasn't sure how the process worked. The Law Offices of Tim O'Hare took care of everything. They worked with the insurance companies, the hospital, and my chiropractor. I sent them the bills and they handled the details with integrity and skill. My medical bills were all covered and I received an excellent settlement on my vehicle. The office staff is experienced and answered my questions quickly. Tim O'Hare is an honest attorney and will make sure you are taken care of. I highly recommend this firm.

Highly Recommend Dallas Personal Injury Attorney Tim O'Hare
I have known Dallas Personal Injury Attorney Tim O'Hare professionally for over a year. He was the first person I contacted when I had a question about how to handle a situation regarding a breach of contract situation. His advice was sound, objective and ultimately proved to be very helpful. This experience paired with Tim O'Hare's reputation and proven ethics, honesty, tenacity and dedication lead me to contact him when a dear friend was involved in a car accident. She needed an attorney she could trust, and I knew that Dallas personal injury lawyer Tim O'Hare would be the advocate she needed in her time of need. Although the case is still in progress, I am very happy I made the recommendation. Tim O'Hare and his team of Dallas personal injury attorneys have made the healing and recovery of damages a much less painful process for her. Thank you Tim O'Hare for your honesty, ethical business practices and aggressive approach to defending your clients!

An attorney you can trust
I used O'Hare Law Firm very recently for an auto accident I was in. The minute I talked to them on the phone I felt very assured that this firm would take care of me and fight for my case. I was even very pleased to talk to Mr. O'Hare directly. I was always kept informed of what was going on and was very pleased at the resolution of my case. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who has ever been involved in a car accident.
