Tim Tesh’s office handled our PI case with expert care from start to finish. His office obtained a settlement that was much higher than expected.
Tim took on my case and helped me through a very scary and difficult time. I was hit by a car while on my Scooter. It was the other drivers fault. I was hurt badly and missed over 1/2 year of work. I always felt like they were in control of everything, and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Very happy with how they handled everything.
Tim handled my personal injury case very well. He stayed in contact, kept me informed and didn’t let the insurance company run me over. I would absolutely retain Tim again.
Cares for and fights for his clients like they are family!!!!!!!!!!!!
I met and hired Tim about 2 years ago. My neighbors dogs had attacked me and ruined my left hand. After trying to work with the insurance company. I was frustrated and in a lot of pain . If you want someone who will fight for and take care of you like Family, do the beat thing ever for yourself and talk to Tim. 🙂
I have worked with Tim as an expert and as a lawyer and I have always learned something new from him in how he approaches his cases and deals with his clients. I have also referred family and friends to him and he has always achieved great results.
