Biography

Prior to forming Edelman & Muehleisen, LLC, Tim spent 5 years with Edelman, deRoode, Muehleisen and Alton, LLC concentrating his practice in a variety of personal injury and workers compensation matters, along with minor criminal and traffic matters.  Before that he spent 3 years with Smith Amundsen, a multi-practice law firm based in 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 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 taken cases to conclusion through trial of settlement on behalf of individuals, corporations, and small businesses.  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.
