“We are all so deeply saddened at the loss of our great friend and colleague. Tim was truly one of a kind. He will be remembered for his zealous and passionate advocacy for his clients, his loyalty, humility, charm and quick wit, and his gentle, personal touch with all whom he came to know,” Rose Law Firm managing member Robyn Allmendinger said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Susan, and daughters, Elaine Ruth and Vivian. It was exceedingly clear to everyone that knew him that his wife and his girls were his ultimate joy.”
