This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Knowledgable, Friendly, and Easy to Communicate With
Although I only consulted with Tim and did not know him previously or through any reference, it was a positive experience. He put in his time and energy to take a detailed review of my situation and communicate what he was thinking with me. He personally called me and emailed me to explain his opinions on my potential case, and he calmly answered my various questions. If I have any future legal matters I need assistance with, I will definitely come back to Tim!
