Timothy Robert Muehleisen

St. Louis, Missouri

Timothy R. Muehleisen grew up in south St. Louis and has stayed close to home throughout his life. A 1994 graduate of Saint Louis University High School, he obtained his undergraduate degree in Business Administration (Marketing) from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1998. He then received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law in 2001.

Prior to joining Edelman deRoode, LLC, Tim spent 2 ½ years with Smith Amundsen, a law firm based out of Chicago, Illinois. While there, he handled matters in a variety of areas including labor and employment disputes, construction litigation, contract disputes, commercial litigation, premises liability, products liability, toxic torts and general insurance defense. Prior to his time at Smith Amundsen, Tim was a non-equity partner at the law firm of Moser & Marsalek, PC in St. Louis. While there, he concentrated his practice in defending personal injury lawsuits that were filed against his clients across the country. After 12 years spent mostly defending lawsuits, Tim decided that it was time to take that knowledge and skill set and begin practicing on the plaintiff side. During his career, Tim has tried and assisted with the trial of numerous matters in which favorable verdicts were reached on behalf of large corporations, small businesses and individuals. His efforts have resulted in defense verdicts in a number of cases where plaintiffs alleged multi-million dollar damages. In addition to his trial work, Tim has also handled more than seventy-five mediations/arbitrations and has been very successful with disposing of matters prior to trial, obtaining favorable decisions on Motions for Summary Judgment and Motions to Dismiss in both State and Federal court.

In 2011, Missouri Lawyers Weekly honored Tim as one of its 2011 Up & Coming Lawyers. The award honors attorneys under the age of 40. The recipient epitomizes excellence in the legal community and is identified as a leader in the community-at-large. In addition, Tim was also selected for inclusion in Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers as a Rising Star for 2011 and 2013, which recognizes attorneys under the age of 40 that have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

In his community, Timothy volunteers with Habitat for Humanity and is the founder and head coach of the Jr. Cougar middle school football program for the Affton School District in St. Louis. He is also a board member of the Greek Literary Association for Kappa Sigma Fraternity (Beta-Gamma Chapter at the University of Missouri-Columbia). Timothy is licensed to practice in the states of Missouri and Illinois, as well as, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri and the United States Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit.
