A lawyer with integrity and professionalism
Timothy and I have been colleagues for a couple of years now. Without hesitance, I can say that he is an incredibly hard worker and excellent attorney. In my opinion, Timothy's standout quality has to be his ability to unburden his clients of complicated legal processes, while genuinely caring enough to keep them fully informed of progress and options.

Good Attorney
He did a good job. I felt comfortable, and he explained things to me so I could understand my options. He returned by calls and emails promptly.

Knowledgeable, Compassionate Professional
Tim Follett was very thorough in explaining my existing trust when my husband died. I wish I had originally had him do the first trust. Very thorough with his work and follow ups. I appreciated his attitude toward family and his character. I will continue to use his services as he is one of those valuable people you need in your life.
