The Right Man For The Job
We were fortunate to find and enlist Timothy O’hara to represent us with some permit and legal issues with a new property. We were not looking to sue anyone we were just looking for justice and a resolve of our issues. We were pleased to find Mr O’hara was in full agreement. With his guidance and name behind us the city and the parties involved all worked to resolve our issues. We plan to retain Mr O’Hara as our family attorney.

Real Estate
I have only had the opportunity to utilize an attorney's services twice in my lifetime and I did not know what to expect when I contacted Mr. O'Hara. He proved very knowledgeable dealing with my problem and extremely competent. Timothy and his lovely wife Reena, were a pleasure to work with professionally and personally. I would highly recommend his services in handling any real estate situation you may have. If we were staying in the area, Timothy would be my go to person for advice and counsel in dealing with real estate issues. He is great!

I will use Tim O'Hara for all my real estate and legal needs.
Tim O'Hara assisted me in the due diligence and purchase of out of state replacement property during a 1031 exchange. He was instrumental in finding replacement property, conducting due diligence, examining all closing documents closely and even arguing with the seller's and escrow company regarding mistakes in their documents. His focus on detail revealed a "mistake" on the part of seller's that escrow did not pickup upon. A mistake that would have cost me over $100,000. I will use Tim O'Hara for all my real estate and legal needs.

I will use him in the future for any real estate deals.
"Tim O'Hara represented me in a complex purchase of a vineyard. He was knowledgeable and insightful to the many issues that could potentially impact the property. He was not afraid to modify contract terms, negotiate with the seller on my behalf and insisted on conduct thorough due diligence, even when the seller insisted it was not necessary." With Tim's help, all the issues were revealed, so I knew exactly what I was buying. Without hesitation, I will use him in the future for any real estate deals.

Failed to show up for Hearing
I hired to Timothy O'Hara to defend me at a hearing with the California Department of Insurance. Per his request I sent him signed contract and fee agreement (several times) and a $4,500 check. I also provided letters from a former boss and sibling. Tim was dismissive, disinterested and despite Tim rescheduling my hearing, failed to show up. Tim apologized profusely, stating he'd "never missed a hearing". Because of the nature of my hearing, his no-show constitutes gross negligence and may cause irreparable harm to my ability to make a living. I represented myself on 5/2/2016, but not being an attorney, was outmatched and defenseless. The reality here, Tim was dismissive and full of excuses. When you hire an attorney, you expect them to resolve the problem, not be the problem.
