Since graduating from law school, Tim has always been a personal injury lawyer unlike those depicted as “ambulance chasers” or on TV promising “big cash payouts”.

Tim said: “I think a personal injury case is about liability and fairness. In a typical case, the defendant broke a safety rule and caused unnecessary injury and should be held accountable to make the community safer. At the same time, the victim suffered injuries and has expenses that deserve to be fairly compensated. My mission is to obtain this just compensation.”

Tim is one of County of Chester clean. Its local roots are deep. He was born and raised and lived most of his life in Kennet Square. Tim’s parents, Malcolm Rayne and Susan Woodward were both local schoolteachers (in fact, Tim’s dad was his 5th grade teacher). Inspired by two uncles who were local lawyers, George Brutcher/Kennett Square and Tim Barnard/Media, Tim wanted to be a litigator from an early age. He was also always enterprising. He started a car wash business as a young teenager, a firewood cutting business in high school, and eventually a house painting business in college, working his way through the University of Delaware operation of the business between classes. Working full time, he went to law school in the evenings at Widener University, where he met his wife of nearly 30 years, Amee. During his senior year of law school, Tim landed a clerkship with a local legal legend, William Gallagher who ran the full service County of Chester firm, MacElree Harvey and the rest is history.

Today, Tim handles a wide variety of personal injury cases: car, truck, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents, slips and falls, dangerous goods cases, dog bites and medical malpractice. “I love that even though I focus my practice in one area of ​​law, every case is different. I’m a storyteller. I dig deep to get to know my client and try to really understand how and why the accident happened so that I can tell a compelling story and achieve a fair recovery for my client. My goal is also to teach the accused a lesson and make the world a safer place.”

Tim has had some crazy cases in his career: a client who was seriously injured in a fire in an operating room, a car accident caused by horses that escaped from a local farm and crashed through a car window, and even a man shot dead in a hunting accident. .

“One of the most satisfying things for me is when something I’ve talked about in my articles or videos helps someone. For example, a close friend of mine was seriously injured in a car accident. car, and I was able to get him a fair recovery only because he read my articles and saw my videos on the importance of buying underinsurance coverage.”
