Forman Watkins & Krutz LLP
Tim was first inspired to become an attorney while watching Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird. When Atticus commanded a courtroom against all odds in a seemingly impossible case, it ignited Tim's desire to be challenged by interesting things and to do work that is socially valuable. Every day Tim gets to do just that, as he shows up to work to face fresh challenges that allow him to provide his clients with his best efforts. A considerate friend and genuine professional, Tim has a strong ability to take complex information and break it down into comprehensible parts, allowing no ambiguity between he, his clients, and the professionals on the other side of the case. A skill indispensable in litigation. While he enjoys his work, Tim is also actively involved in his community. He currently serves on the board of a local charter school where he enjoys participating in the challenging process of remaking the New Orleans' school system, one school at a time. Incorporating this philosophy into his work every day, Tim pushes himself and others around him to always strive to be better, creating an atmosphere of excellence which brings his clients not only great results, but peace of mind.
Tim enjoys a practice that presents new and varied challenges and opportunities. He has served as national trial counsel to several defendants in toxic tort litigation and has tried cases in several states in that capacity. He also represents parties in commercial disputes in Louisiana and Mississippi ranging from straightforward breach of contract actions to more complex matters involving multiple parties. Tim's commercial practice has included representation of a real estate investment trust in acquisitions, dispositions and financings, as well as representation of local Louisiana individuals and companies seeking advice on corporate and transactional matters.
