My name is Tim Flaherty. Over the years, I have represented thousands of people against criminal charges, ranging from misdemeanors to serious felonies.
While still in law school, I was a law clerk for a firm that specialized in death penalty defense cases. Following graduation, I worked as a Public Defender for three years before starting this law firm.
I focus 100 percent of my time and talents on criminal defense. I protect my clientsâ rights with passion and purpose, always doing whatever it takes to get the best outcome in a case. I aggressively negotiate with prosecutors, working to suppress illegally obtained evidence before the trial, and using my extensive courtroom experience at trial. I will manage every case myself, and will work to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
And criminal defense is the only area of law I've ever practiced in.
This is the only type of law I have ever practiced.
As a private attorney I can choose and limit my case load to suit my clientsâ needs. I determined that if I was going to open my own practice, I would do things differently. While I may have carried upwards of 200 cases at any given time as a public defender, as a private attorney I can choose and limit my case load to suit my clientsâ requirements.
Allotting enough time is critical in defense work. It means that details are not missed, my clients and I can work directly as a team, and clients have access to me anytime they have a concern. Exhaustive reviews and analysis can be done on every case. This allows me to dedicate all of my skills and creativity in defending every client.
