I have hired Mr. Shields many times over the past 20 years concerning legal matters. Through those experiences, I have come to respect his judgment and recommendations, found him knowledgeable and experienced in small business and personal legal matters, and trust him as a person. His fees are reasonable. Tim is punctual for meetings and is conscientious about returning phone calls expeditiously as he can.

– E. Robert Kendziorski, Real Estate Investments and Sales

I highly recommend Tim to anyone who is looking for an honest, passionate and committed corporate counsel.

I have had the opportunity to work with Tim as my corporate counsel on two of my ventures. Tim always strived hard to resolve issues quickly and efficiently. He is a true professional.

– Kimber Patrick, US Bank

I had the good fortune to meet Tim about ten years ago and have had the privilege to work side by side with him on complex litigation matters. He takes a personal interest in his clients from the inception of their relationship through litigation. His lifelong work ethic is evident in his commitment to the law, detail oriented research and preparation, and successful outcomes for his clients.
