In over 35 years of practice, Timothy W. Monsees has handled cases in over 20 states. In the past, Tim worked for law firms specializing in defense of insurance companies and product manufacturers. That experience now helps him understand his opponent, since he restricts his practice to representing victims of wrongdoing.

His peers in the legal community have recognized him with a Martindale-Hubbell rating of “AV,” which sets him at the top of his profession in both legal ability and professional integrity. For many years, Tim has been recognized as one of The Best Lawyers in America for his work in personal injury and medical malpractice. He has also been honored as a Missouri “Super Lawyer” for attorneys falling into the top 5% of the profession. 

That said, he is perhaps most professionally honored to be recognized as one of the Top 10% in his profession in “Client Satisfaction” by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys. Client satisfaction, after all, is what it is all about.

Tim is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia, where he attended both undergraduate and law school. A Kansas City, Missouri native, he returned home to practice law upon graduating law school in 1981, where he graduated in the top 10% of his law school class and was awarded the distinction of “Order of the Coif.” In 2011, Tim was honored to become a member, by invitation, to the American Board of Trial Advocates, the most prestigious organization of trial attorneys in the United States.

Active leadership involvement in local, state, and national legal communities assists him in locating other attorneys and experts with information that will better serve his clients. As a sustaining member of the American Association for Justice, the best resources in the nation are available to Tim’s practice. His membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum is a testament to his history of million dollar results for his clients.

In 2013, Tim published Preparing For a Personal Injury Case, a quick and comprehensive guide to the most commonly asked questions about personal injury cases and what to expect. It continues as a solid reference to the kinds of questions clients can and should ask as they choose an attorney and venture into personal injury litigation.

Most importantly, Tim has a family, and they provide daily inspiration for his representation of families like yours.
