Financial markets and services Attorney | Aug 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"When an individual or an organization needs to turn to a professional for counsel and guidance, they must find someone who is highly competent and skilled in their field. Even more importantly, a client needs to trust an individual who is bound by sound principles and leads through ethical behavior. Tim Mahota is that person. I have known Tim for over twenty years now and he is someone who possesses all the essential character traits of a great leader starting with his integrity, intelligence and core values. As a professional, and especially as an attorney guiding and directing clients through a complicated compliance landscape, Tim’s personal integrity is the foundation of his work and makes him a person that friends, colleagues and clients can trust and follow. For those reasons, I have the utmost respect for Tim and he both my personal and professional endorsement."
