Why let Tim serve you?

I consider myself lucky to be an attorney. For some of life’s biggest moments – adopting a child or buying a home for example – I get to be there for clients, helping to make it happen. Those moments are important to you, and they should be important to your attorney. I am proud of the work I do for my clients and will be happy to talk with you about your situation.


A native of New York, Timothy moved to eastern North Carolina a decade ago and began practicing law. His work is primarily focused on real estate transactions, adoptions and terminations of parental rights, and  LGBTQ rights. Timothy is proud to serve this community through his legal work, but also through his involvement in several charitable organizations and boards.

He received his Bachelor’s Degree with Honors in both Psychology and Sociology at Brockport College and his Juris Doctor Degree from New England School of Law, where he served first as an associate and later as an editor for the New England Journal of Civil and Criminal Confinement. Timothy was a three-time recipient of the New England Law Academic Achievement and Dean’s Merit Scholarship.

Timothy is a dedicated attorney who works hard to represent his client’s interests and to protect their rights. He knows the importance of having an attorney who communicates with his clients and listens to his client’s concerns.
