Tim graduated from Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1983. He has been practicing law since his admission to the bar in Wisconsin in 1983, followed by admission to the bar in Minnesota in 1984. He has been practicing in Rochester, Minnesota since 1985 concentrating in matters pertaining to real estate and small business. In that time, Tim has examined title and handled the closing of thousands of real estate and business transactions.
Tim is committed to providing personalized legal services in an effort to assure that his clients are well informed and enjoy a positive experience in the closing of their transaction. He conducts all closings himself in order to provide the best, most timely and useful advice to clients. Like a title company, we charge flat fees for most closing services pertaining to a residential real estate transaction or refinance. Unlike dealing with title companies, however, our clients have the additional benefit of legal advice available throughout the transaction typically at no additional charge.
