I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science and Business Administration from the University of Arizona with Honors in 2008. I went on to study law at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, and graduated cum laude in 2012. While in law school I excelled in trial practice, advocacy, and criminal law courses.
During law school I interned in the homicide division of the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office in Detroit, Michigan where I learned the difference a good criminal defense attorney can have in a high stakes case. I saw firsthand how essential it is for the criminally accused person to have a zealous, dedicated, and passionate attorney to represent them in court. I went on to clerk for the Honorable Patricia Fresard of the Third Judicial Circuit in Wayne County, Michigan, and then the Detroit based firm of Mogill, Posner, & Cohen which focuses their practice on criminal defense, family law, and professional responsibility litigation. Both experiences provided opportunities to work on various criminal trials and appeals from the standpoint of the litigator and the judge.
I became a lawyer to be a voice for those who feel they are not being heard. Whether it is being charged with a crime, going through a divorce, or dealing with social services regarding the removal of a child, people often feel like no one is listening. I have made it my mission to ensure my clients’ voices are heard. Every person deserves their day in court and a lawyer who cares about their case just as much as they do.
Since joining The Law Office of Jeffrey J. Timlin, I have focused on representing the criminally accused in juvenile, misdemeanor, and felony cases, representing parents in dependency and neglect cases, and representing individuals going through divorces or child-custody cases. The most gratifying part about my job is assisting a client in receiving a favorable result in their case.
