About Tim

What types of legal issues do you help individuals and businesses resolve?

My practice primarily focuses on helping developers, landowners, and business owners negotiate real estate transactions, including:

  • Sales and acquisitions of industrial, commercial, warehouse, and marina properties;

  • Land developments; zoning and land use issues; and condominium developments and administration;

  • Commercial, shopping center, industrial, and warehouse leasing;

  • Residential leasing and for-sale-by-owner transactions.

I also advise owners of closely held businesses and entrepreneurs with entity selection and formation, corporate governance, and contract negotiation.

What skills help you advise the client and achieve the best results or outcomes?

A lawyer must first listen to the client’s story and learn his or her needs, goals and problems before he or she can hope to achieve the best result or outcome for that client. As a former journalist who’s conducted hundreds of interviews, I am an experienced and patient listener. I also have the communications skills to convey the client’s message in a clear and effective manner in order to achieve the best result.

What case did you find the most rewarding to work on?

Each time I get to help someone achieve one of their goals or solve a problem is rewarding in its own way.
