“I have had the pleasure of dealing with Tim Marshall both for personal legal matters as well as building a Charitable Trust that benefits the wider community. Tim’s attention to the cause, determination to get a result and calmness throughout really highlights the professionalism, manner, skillset and talent that Tim holds. Tim’s integrity to deliver results, efficiency to get information and his emphasis on customer service really showcases his passion and focus. The way Tim also brings his team into the understanding and conversation showed me his leadership, and passion for mentoring. Tim’s passion for what he does certainly shines through and I do not hesitate to recommend him to family, friends and acquaintances.”
