There are many facets to a criminal case where your advocate needs to be exceptional: pre-charging, pre-trial, trial and post-trial/sentencing. Mr. Healy believes the key to successful defense of a client is thorough investigation combined with extensive courtroom experience and formidable trial skills. In part, Mr. Healy has honed these skills throughout his more than two decades of experience as a criminal defense lawyer by keeping up with cutting edge developments in the law and completing the National Institute of Trial Advocacy at the University of Virginia.
He is now using his experience to strengthen and bolster his associate attorneys with dominating criminal defense practices. He often preaches that a good criminal defense lawyer must be more knowledgeable about the facts of the case than anyone else in the courtroom. “When it comes to trial, you must be the most prepared person in the courtroom.” Tim says.
