    I could not have asked for a more hard working, consciousness attorney, zealous, caring advocate, and courteous and professional person with whom to work. Tim takes the time to connect with his clients and takes a personal approach to each case that he handles. If I were to ever have the need, I would choose Tim to represent my legal interests in a heartbeat.
