What influences helped Tim make the decision to pursue a career in family law? Keep reading to learn more about his story.
Why Practice Family Law?
Tim was first introduced to law by his oldest brother, who is a trial lawyer in Wisconsin. Before his senior year in college, he spent the summer with his brother where he shadowed his work. From this experience, Tim was able to see first-hand what it means to be a lawyer and how he could positively impact people’s lives.
Tim went on to attend Widener University School of Law. During his last semester, he was selected to serve in the school’s Civil Law Clinic where he handled many family law cases. It was through this experience that he realized he could make an immediate impact by focusing his practice on family law.
Now 21 years into his practice, Tim knows that being an effective divorce lawyer requires both empathy and honesty. Whether someone is dealing with divorce, child custody, matters of support, or all three, he knows the stress and concern it places on his clients.
As a divorce attorney, Tim is able to help clients avoid making self-destructive choices and rather think about the long-term impact their choices may have for them or their kids. Family law is how he uses his skills to help others and this is why he has chosen it as the focus of his practice.

I recently had a phone consult with Ryan Skyler after speaking with Tim Colgan months ago, in regards to a divorce complaint my husband has filed and has claimed we've been separated for a year not living together and that is not the case at all. Everything he's claimed is not true. But I am physically disabled and currently going thru the disability process and therefore do not have a source of income at this time. I was told it was $1500 for a retainer, but I have not been able to find anyone to help with that amount. I do have $500 I could put down towards a retainer. I'm really concerned about the paperwork I'm receiving from his lawyer and I need to claim spousal support. I really really need help. I never expected this to happen, and I do not know much about this process. Please let me.know if there's anyway we could try to work together.
