Tim was always eager to explain and guide us through what would have been a very stressful situation..He responded quickly to all our questions and concerns.
I will use him for all my legal needs.

I've known Tim since the late 1960's and he has handled all my legal needs since he was licensed.
I've never hesitated to refer Tim to friends or family, for legal, tax, estate planning, or accounting advice.
He was always at the top of his class, and continues to have a keen mind.
His tax and accounting background are a great mix.

I have known Tim since 1985 and not only have I referred many of my clients and friends to him, but he has taken care of my own personal estate planning issues. I have the highest degree of confidence in Tim's legal knowledge, effectiveness and professionalism.
