For Tim Downie, achieving significant results in the face of adversity and helping people who need it most is the core of his practice in personal injury law.
Representing people who are injured – whether at work, through exposure to asbestos or as a result of a motor vehicle or public accident – is a role he takes seriously, conscious that all have entrusted him with a significant issue in their lives.
Making sure their faith is repaid with courtesy, compassion, good advice and efficient resolution of their issue, is what matters most.
For many of his clients it will be their first experience of the law and Tim aims to make as bearable as possible a legal process which is stressful enough without the added pressure of coping with an injury or illness.
Tim completed his law degree at the University of Northern Territory in 1995. He joined Slater and Gordon in 2001 and was Practice Group Leader for the Motor Vehicle Practice in WA before transferring to SA as the State Practice Group Leader.
