Professional Background

In 2002 Tim started working in civil litigation with Landye Bennett Blumstein LLP. While there he gained extensive experience with civil motion practice, court rules, and case valuation. After finishing law school Tim worked in a general practice with Robert Ireland, now Ireland & Ireland, PC. There he managed the firm’s civil litigation cases, while also gaining experience with business transactions, basic estate planning, and family law. In 2006 Tim joined Smith & Greaves LLP to work in their creditor rights and collection litigation practice.  He left in 2011 to start his own practice with friend and colleague, Michelle Freed.

After graduating from Willamette University in 1997, Tim worked with Volunteers In Asia teaching English in Vietnam. Tim volunteered at Dalat University, and then taught at the Vietnam-USA Society. Tim returned to Portland in 2001 to attend law school.


Tim was born and raised in the Portland area. His playground growing up was East Multnomah County, Mt. Hood, and the Columbia Gorge.

Tim spends his free time enjoying the Northwest outdoors, reading, watching documentaries, and playing chess.  Tim has two children who rule the roost, and so in actuality he has very little free time.
