Tim is an experienced solicitor of 42 years standing. Earning his law degree from Sydney University, following his secondary education as a boarder at Riverview, Tim specialises in the area of property law, conveyancing and commercial leasing, with a special interest in the sale and purchase of motels throughout NSW. Tim conducts matters for individuals and corporations, his clientele tending to be predominantly from the motel and retail industries.

Tim’s down-to-earth approach and generosity with his time ensure that his clients are made to feel completely at ease and are clear about each step in the legal process. His work in the wider world prior to becoming a solicitor, including as a taxi driver and telephonist as he worked his own way through law school, after which he was initially admitted as a barrister in 1975 working with the Commonwealth Crown Solicitors Office, has given Tim the ability to enjoy communicating with people from all walks of life. He has conducted motel and property law matters for clients throughout the whole of NSW, and regularly has repeat clients, all of whom value his expertise, friendly approach and dedication to their specific work needs.
Tim has given numerous motel seminars, covering topics such as the process of purchasing and selling a motel, whether freehold or leasehold, financing, and providing general advice about things to be aware of and pitfalls to avoid.
Born and raised in Wingham, Tim has strong roots in the mid north coast community. He has been President of the Taree and District Eisteddfod since 1977, receiving an Order of Australia medal in 2002 for service to the community of Taree, particularly through his voluntary Eisteddfod work. He is also a past President and current member of the Manning Valley Businessman’s Association. More broadly, Tim served for a number of years as a Director on the St Vincent’s College Board in Sydney.
Happily married to Bev since 1975, and the father of their seven children, Tim is a devoted family man who claims to be able to speak “teenagers talk” and regularly photographs their currently 14 grandchildren. An amateur train buff, outside the office you may well find him at his drum kit or enjoying his model railway.
