Tim’s unique and valuable experience in insurance defense litigation, and from years working as an attorney for insurance companies, puts him in an excellent position to take on national companies and large insurance companies. Prior to representing injured clients, Tim was a senior casualty attorney for both the largest insurance defense firm in the United States and one of the largest insurance defense firms in Florida, where he litigated multiple cases on behalf of Fortune 500 companies.

A former U.S. Army Ranger, Tim was injured in the line of duty. His experience developed and tested his leadership skills, and taught him to react smartly and quickly under pressure, but most importantly for clients, it brought him true insight into what it is like to suffer and recover from life-changing injuries.

Tim is a past recipient of the “Best of the Bar” award from the South Florida Business Journal and was recently voted one of the top Up & Coming attorneys in Florida Trend’s Florida Legal Elite.
