Tim Bates was a claims adjuster for a major insurance company prior to accepting an academic scholarship to Southern Methodist University School of Law. Graduating law school near the top of his class, Tim worked for the largest law firm in Dallas. Tim’s first legal duties included defending litigation claims for clients, Ford Motor Company, Cigna Health Plan, Kodak, Travelers Insurance Companies, Eastman Chemical Company, and others.

Tim was born in a federal housing project with little chance for a quality education and success in this world. Because of this background, Tim rejected a lawyer’s life of representing the rich and dedicated his law career to representing and fighting for real people with real injuries. Most of these fights are against major corporations on a contingency fee with Tim advancing case expenses.

In March 1991, Tim started the Bates Law Firm, realizing that injured people and their families needed better representation. In 1994, after winning several trials, he became Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

Tim Bates is a Member of the National Trial Lawyers and is recognized as one of the National Trial Lawyers TOP 100 TRIAL LAWYERS.

Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1994.

Life Member of the MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR ADVOCATES FORUM and MILLION DOLLAR ADVOCATES FORUM, the Top Trial Lawyers in America. Membership is limited to trial lawyers throughout the United States who have won multi-million dollar cases.
