Timothy J. Gallagher has more than 20 years experience as a Trial Lawyer. For more than a decade Tim has strictly focused his practice in representing people who have sustained serious injuries from automobile accidents, medical malpractice and products liability.
Tim was born in Red Bank, New Jersey and raised in St. Charles County, Missouri. He is a graduate of Benedictine College (B.A., 1985) and St. Louis University School of Law (J.D., 1988); he is admitted to practice in Missouri, Illinois and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.
Tim started practicing law in St. Louis in 1988, with an established Insurance Defense firm where he had the opportunity to learn from highly respected personal injury defense lawyers. Early in his career Tim gained valuable trial and appellate experience which included being on the losing side of the largest personal injury verdict in the history of St. Charles County and winning a case in the Missouri Supreme Court.
In 1996 Tim "switched sides" and in association with his current partner Jennifer Finley began representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases.
Tim has tried dozens of cases to jury verdict in St. Louis City, and the Missouri Counties of St. Louis, St. Charles, Jefferson, Lincoln and Franklin. He has argued appeals before the Missouri Court of Appeals and the Missouri Supreme Court. He has won some cases and lost some cases. But most importantly, Tim has worked to help hundreds of people through difficult times in their lives.
For more than a decade Tim has maintained an AV Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell. Tim shared the top of the list for The Missouri Lawyers Weekly's "Top Plaintiff Lawyers 2008" for his role in winning the largest personal injury verdict in the State of Missouri that year.
In addition to his practice of law, since 2002 Tim has been serving his community as an elected member of the City Council of Richmond Heights, Missouri. He is an active member of Little Flower Parish in Richmond Heights and a volunteer coach for his children's sports teams.
