Timothy W. Schulz Esq.
Because complex litigation often raises multiple issues spanning a broad range of disciplines, it is important that a litigation attorney possess a breadth of experience from which to draw upon to successfully represent his or her clients’ best interests. Timothy W. Schulz is a former police officer with the Atlantic City Police Department in Atlantic City, New Jersey. After suffering injuries in a serious on-duty automobile accident and, after ten years of service, he retired from law enforcement and attended law school at the Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
During his law school years he worked in Miami, Florida as a summer law clerk for Roy Black, Esq., one of the country’s most premier criminal defense trial attorneys, was a judicial intern for the Hon. William H. Hoeveler, United States District Court, Southern District of Florida, and spent a semester working full-time as a Certified Legal Intern with the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s Office, where he tried several felony jury cases to verdict under the direction and supervision of a senior Assistant State Attorney.
Upon graduation, Tim was hired as an associate attorney by Black, Srebnick & Kornspan, P.A., in Miami, Florida, where he continued to work with Roy Black, Esq., co-counseling and co-trying numerous state court criminal cases and trials, including a nationally televised murder trial covered live by Court TV. Tim also co-counseled a case in which Albertsons, a Fortune 500 Company, was charged with corporate criminal manslaughter in the death of shoplifter during a struggle with supermarket employees. A dismissal of that case was ultimately obtained. During his five years at Black, Srebnick & Kornspan, Tim developed a special niche in crime scene investigation, criminal forensics and the cross-examination of expert witnesses in areas such as forensic pathology, ballistics, trace evidence, and DNA comparisons.
In 2000, Tim decided to apply his trial experience gained in Miami in the area of commercial and business litigation, and joined the litigation department at Greenberg Traurig, P.A., one of the largest and most respected domestic and international law firms today. While at Greenberg Traurig, Tim represented a number of Fortune 500 and other publicly traded and private companies in a myriad of complex litigation matters, often dealing with multi-million dollar disputes.
Realizing that market forces have fueled a desire by both small and large businesses, as well as individuals, to lower their overall litigation costs, Tim founded Timothy W. Schulz, P.A., in 2007. The Firm prides itself on providing the same level of legal services as one receives from much larger firms, but for a significantly lower cost. Since its inception, the Firm has continued to steadily grow as its clients have realized the benefits that a smaller, more cost effective, law firm can bring in certain litigation matters.
