The Timothy Broas website highlights a man who is not only an attorney, but a gentleman who has made a commitment to community service and philanthropy. He earned his law degree from the college of William and Mary School of Law and served his clerkship in the New Jersey Supreme Court and then served associate positions at several law firms before becoming a partner at Winston & Strawn, LLP, and his current law firm. His practice areas include Washington, DC, New York and New Jersey. His clients include financial institutions, pharmaceutical corporations and major utility companies.

Based in Washington, DC, Mr. Broas represents high profile clients and concentrates his litigation efforts in white collar criminal defense, corporate investigations, securities litigation and congressional litigation. The cases he has taken on include bank fraud, money laundering, bribery and securities fraud. Mr. Broas has been recognized by his peers as one of the top white collar criminal defense lawyers in the country.

In addition to his work in the legal field, Timothy Broas is supportive of several health initiatives and puts his leadership skills to work with several nonprofit organizations and participation in charitable events. His efforts include serving as a Board of Trustee member of Partners In Health (PIH), in his list of charitable causes. In his never ending effort to give back to his community and to others who need help, he is a board of trustee member and works with Partners, which is an international medical organization, and works to improve health care options worldwide. His work with Partners in the United States includes working with Navajo Nation and its members who struggle with cardiovascular disease and hypertension, chronic health conditions.
