Tim Michael Flaherty is a criminal defense attorney who has more than 12 years of experience fighting for the rights of those accused of misdemeanor and felony crimes. He is the founder of Flaherty Defense Firm in Fort Walton Beach, Fla.

Flaherty earned his juris doctor at Southern Illinois University of Law in 2001. Soon after, he moved to Florida and became license to practice law in the Sunshine State. He worked as a public defender in Shalimar, Fla., where he defended thousands of clients who were facing a variety of charges.

Flaherty used his experience as a public defender to found his own firm in 2004. Working as a public defender gave him valuable knowledge, but it did not allow him to devote time to each client. As a private practicing attorney, he is able to work one-on-one with clients and devote more time to each case.

As a public defender, Flaherty sometimes would carry more than 200 cases at any given time. Now, he has vowed to limit his case load to suit the needs of his clients. Understanding how to help clients and what they need is crucial to getting the best possible results.

Flaherty practices in a wide range of criminal defense, including driving under the influence, drug charges, traffic crimes, sexual offenses and domestic violence. The firm also handles cases for out-of-state visitors, such as Spring Break arrests and minor in possession.
