Timothy M. Whiting graduated from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1994 and is licensed to practice in both Wisconsin and Illinois. Before opening Whiting Law Group in 2001, Tim worked with Hinshaw and Culbertson, a large, multi-state insurance defense law firm where he specialized in personal injury and medical malpractice actions on behalf of defendants, including physicians and hospitals. Early experience as a defense lawyer has given Tim a unique perspective and advantage in his representation of his clients who are victims of personal injury.
As a result of Tim’s success and commitment in representing his clients who were victims of the negligent conduct of others since 2001, Tim has been recognized by the Law Bulletin Publishing Company as one of the Top 40 Lawyers Under Age 40 in Illinois and as one of the top 100 lawyers in Illinois by the American Trial Lawyers Association. Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, the top legal publication which rates lawyers’ skills nationwide, has also distinguished Tim with the Highest Ranking for Legal Ability and Success for an attorney in his age category and experience level.
Tim has obtained successful personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice actions recoveries in nine different counties in four different states and he and his firm have recovered over millions for their clients in eight years. Tim is also a frequent lecturer at various bar association seminars throughout the state on civil and tort litigation matters and managing a successful law practice.

He routinely performs pro-bono legal services for Alderman’s Solis and Flores Constituents, Catholic Charities Free Supper’s Night, and the Law Center for Disability and Elder Victims.
