About Tim Smith

Mr. Smith has practiced as a trial attorney since graduating Notre Dame Law School in 1992. He has litigated cases across the country including cases in Ventura County, California and Middlesex County, New Jersey. He filed one of the first Ethicon PhysioMesh cases here in Michigan. Those cases are currently pending as part of a Federal Multidistrict Litigation in the Northern District of Georgia.

In 2017, he began representing Michigan cities and counties in what has shaped up to be one of the largest pieces of litigation ever in the history of our federal court system. Nearly every Northern Michigan and Upper Peninsula county retained Mr. Smith and his team to represent their interests in MDL 2804, In RE: National Prescription Opioid Litigation.

In addition to complex Federal Court MDLs, he represents individuals in a broad array of cases. In 1998, in Oscoda County, he obtained the highest plaintiffs verdict in the history of that county. He has a proven track record not only in injury cases, but divorce, criminal, and civil litigation.

In 2017 alone, he collected over $1,000,000 for a south central Michigan credit union.
