Tim Flaherty

Tim Flaherty, Criminal Defense LawyerI am attorney Tim Flaherty. Since 2001, I have defended thousands of people against criminal charges ranging from misdemeanors to serious felonies.

I focus 100 percent of my time and talents on criminal defense. I protect my clients’ rights with passion and purpose, always doing whatever it takes to get the best possible result in a case. Through negotiating with prosecutors, working to suppress illegally obtained evidence before the trial, or using my extensive courtroom experience at trial, I will work to achieve the best possible result in your case.

I moved to Florida in 2001. After moving to Florida, I worked as a Public Defender from 2001 until March of 2004 when I started my own firm. During my time as a Public Defender, I defended thousands of misdemeanor and felony cases. While I enjoyed my role at the P.D.’s office and gained a lot of experience, I realized that the crushing case load made it very difficult to devote the time to each case that every client deserved.

I decided that if I was going to open my own practice, I would do things a lot differently. While I may have carried upwards of 200 cases at any given time as a public defender, as a private attorney I can choose and limit my case load to suit my clients’ needs.

I know that allotting enough time is critical in defense work. It means that details are not missed, my clients and I can work closely as a team, and clients have access to me any time they have a question. Exhaustive reviews and analysis can be done on every case. This allows me to devote all of my talent and creativity to defending each client.
