Workers Compensation

With a long experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants, Bel Air Maryland Workers’ Compensation Attorney Timothy A. Cook is well aware of how insurance companies operate in their effort to avoid paying fair compensation to the injured. Although federal and state laws protect workers who are injured on the job, there are many requirements and extensive paperwork with timeliness that could seriously affect your workers’ compensation claims if not correctly filed and documented. Valid claims are frequently denied.

Juvenile Law

The defense of minors charged with criminal offenses in Harford, Cecil, and Baltimore Counties, is something Timothy A. Cook, Attorney at Law is well equipped to handle. If your child or teenager is in trouble with the law, you need an experienced juvenile lawyer on your side.

Serious Traffic Violations

If you’ve been charged with a serious traffic violation such as hit and run, vehicular manslaughter, reckless driving, fleeing and eluding the police, or driving while suspended/revoked, you need a traffic lawyer experienced in defending clients against these serious charges.

Car Accidents

If you’ve been injured in a car accident through no fault of your own, you need an experienced car accident lawyer who can go up against the insurance companies and win. Don’t try and navigate the system alone – we work for you to get the best settlement possible.

Bicycle Accidents

Serious bicycle accidents are unfortunately becoming more common. If you were injured in a cycling accident caused by someone else, working with a seasoned bicycle accident lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents

Unfortunately, not all drivers like to share the road with motorcyclists. If you sustained serious injuries in a motorcycle accident that was not your fault, you need to consult with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. Doing so can help you get a fair settlement with the insurance companies.

Domestic Violence Cases

As an experienced domestic violence lawyer, Timothy A. Cook is familiar with the ins and outs of domestic violence cases, from protective orders to court appearances and even trials. You need an experienced criminal attorney on your side.
