Tim Kneis

Tim Kneis is a paralegal who works out of our Oakland office where his work focuses on several probate and post-death trust administrations.

Originally. Tim was working as a Trust Officer at a bank and a law firm he worked with closely was looking for a probate paralegal, and he thought it would be a nice and challenging change. In his role at our firm, Tim takes great pride in knowing that the services we provide the clients is tremendously helpful during what can be a difficult time following the death of a loved one.

Outside of work, Tim unwinds by reading and playing golf.
