How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Bankruptcy helps provide a way for individuals to help minimize economic and property loss in the midst of uncertain and sometimes unforeseen circumstances.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Clients must educate themselves on their issue. It helps the client understand the strengths and weaknesses in their case and gives them a more realistic expectation of the outcome.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes; document review is an essential part of my practice.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Because of the complexities involved in bankruptcy law, I do not provide coaching to pro se clients.

Timothy L. Dave

Prior to establishing The Law Office of Timothy L. Dave, P.A., and being admitted to the Florida Bar, I interned for Jackson & Alexander, P.A., while attending law school. Prior to law school, I was Protective Investigator for the Florida Department of Children & Families in Jacksonville, Florida. Prior to working for the State of Florida, I served in the United States Navy, United States Naval Reserve, and the Florida Army National Guard, where I received a commission as a Second Lieutenant in 2001.

My military experiences, which included travel to many countries around the world, allowed me to see injustices and violations of basic human rights that we take for granted in the United States. Also, my time as a Protective Investigator for the Florida Department of Children & Families gave me insight into the legal ramifications of removing a child from a home and the subsequent consequences.

Caring, sensitive to the concerns of each individual client, knowledgeable and, when necessary, able and willing to advocate for my clients in court.
