Tim has had over 20 years’ experience in personal injury law, including 13 years as the South Australian Practice Group Leader of the national law firm, Slater + Gordon.
Tim completed his law degree at the University of Northern Territory in 1995. He joined Slater and Gordon in 2001 and was Practice Group Leader for the Motor Vehicle Practice in WA before transferring to SA as the State Practice Group Leader.
Tim practices in all areas of personal injury and compensation law, and is passionate about representing people who are injured at work as a result of a motor vehicle accident, public accident or professional negligence, or suffered through exposure to asbestos.
For Tim, a particular attraction of Johnston Withers Lawyers is being able to offer his expertise in asbestos litigation to our country offices, specifically Whyalla, a town with a history of heavy asbestos exposure through the ship building industry.
Tim takes his role seriously, conscious that all his clients have entrusted him with a significant issue in their lives. He strives to make sure his client’s faith is repaid with courtesy, compassion, good advice and efficient resolution of their claim.
For many of his clients, it’s their first experience of the law. Tim aims to make the legal process as bearable as possible, which is stressful enough without the added pressure of coping with an injury or illness.
