Tim maintains a national trial and appellate practice. He has tried more than 40 cases in state and federal courts located in 25 states. He also has handled dozens of appeals across the country. Tim is often retained by clients in cases that involve significant reputational risk, large damages claims, investigations by government regulators, and/or class allegations.

Tim’s peers consistently have ranked him as one of Illinois’ top litigators. He has been named an Illinois Super Lawyer each of the last six years and was named one of Illinois’ top 40 lawyers under 40 by the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin in 2011. Said one competitor who recommended that his client retain Tim to argue an appeal:

Elliott’s argument was masterful, polished and articulate.... The result speaks for itself: Elliott persuaded the appellate court to reverse the trial court one day after oral argument.

Tim also actively participates in public service and pro bonowork. Currently, he serves on the DuPage County Board (which manages a $430 million budget in a county with 950,000 residents) and the board of Metropolitan Family Services of DuPage (one of DuPage County’s largest social services organizations). Previously, he served as President of the DuPage Historical Museum Foundation (2010-2014), member of the DuPage Water Commission (2008-2010), and Glen Ellyn Village Trustee (2013-2016). Tim regularly is appointed by the Seventh Circuit to represent indigent parties in criminal and civil appeals
