"I work as a private investigator and I've worked with many different attorneys. The more I work with Tim and get to know him, the more impressed I am. His integrity and intelligence make him a truly great attorney. I realized pretty quickly that Tim has a knack for paying attention to case details and coming up with creative approaches. He cares about his clients first and foremost and it's reflected in how he does his job. I would highly recommend him."
