IN TIM'S OWN WORDS
“I do not take my clients’ trust in me for granted—I value it greatly. I realize how critical my involvement is in matters that have a significant impact on their lives. I treat my clients in the manner I would like to be treated if I were in their shoes. It is important that my clients see me as a steady hand that they can count on no matter how complex and fast moving a deal may seem, as that view will bring them back time and time again for future representation.”
