Attorney Profile:

Tim has been practicing law in Colorado for fourteen years, spending some time with law firms but primarily working as a solo practitioner. This time has involved constant Court appearances and extensive experiences working with families addressing sensitive issues concerning their children. Employment Law, Criminal Law and Civil Law experience accumulated when working with business owners, college students or hard-working people facing legal issues who needed someone who could understand and give advice on how best to move forward.

Twenty years working in restaurant kitchens (as everything from a Dishwasher to a Chef) before he attended Case Western Reserve University Law School has given him rare life experiences possessed by few attorneys. Tim believes this gives him a unique ability to relate to people from all walks of life, which leads to more effective representation.

Washing dishes as a college student, Tim worked a variety of positions in the restaurant industry, ultimately becoming a Sous Chef at the top French restaurant in Carmel, California. He managed a kitchen for a 500-bed hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and taught at the Culinary Institute in Denver. Coupled with his Bachelors of Science in Business Administration earned in Denver, this experience enables Tim to see challenges from a busines owner and management perspective as well.
