“Working at Wexler Wallace allows me to be a part of a hard-working team and make a positive difference in people’s lives.”
Tim joined Wexler Wallace as a summer associate during law school, and has remained an invaluable asset to the firm ever since.
Tim’s practice is directed to representing plaintiffs in cases against medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Over the course of his career, he has spent a substantial amount of time involved in ongoing litigation and is a member of trial teams at both state and federal levels. Tim served as a member of the trial team that achieved a $3.27 million jury verdict in Huskey v. Ethicon, Inc, a pelvic mesh case in the United States District Court in West Virginia.
In addition to his pelvic mesh casework, Tim is experienced in cases involving product liability and employment litigation. He thrives when working with engineering expert witnesses, defending depositions, and engaging in Daubert briefing. Tim is known for his ability to navigate the intricacies of complicated litigation, and he has a knack for identifying, distilling, and understanding complex engineering content often associated with federal multidistrict litigation (MDL) and state court proceedings.
Tim played an instrumental role in the Kaiser v. Ethicon, Inc. et al. case, where he took the lead on legal briefing prior to and during the trial. Tim’s legal theories, which included successfully arguing that the court should not require proof of a safer alternative design as part of the Plaintiffs’ prima facie product defect case, provided a solid foundation for the trial team to argue the case. Tim’s contributions to the case continued at trial, where he drafted and argued jury instructions, and handled the directed verdict arguments. Thanks in part to Tim’s exceptional work, the jury returned a $35 million verdict for the Plaintiffs in the Northern District of Indiana.
