The founder of DeMore Law Firm, PLLC, Timothy J. DeMore focuses his practice exclusively on plaintiff's personal injury and wrongful death litigation. From the firm's offices in Syracuse, New York, he provides representation to clients throughout the state who have suffered economic and noneconomic harm due to the negligence or recklessness of other persons or entities. The types of cases that Mr. DeMore has handled have arisen out of incidents involving medical malpractice, truck and other motor vehicle crashes, pedestrian knockdowns, defective products, and construction site accidents.

During his career, Mr. DeMore has been able to obtain numerous high-dollar settlements and jury awards on behalf of his clients. Some representative results include a $5 million award from a hospital for a client who was severely injured due to a surgeon's negligence, a $1.5 million verdict on behalf of the estate of a client who was struck and killed by a vehicle while she was walking in a grocery store parking lot, and a $1.8 million settlement for a woman who was injured when her vehicle was rear-ended by a big rig. These and other successes have earned Mr. DeMore an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.

As an undergraduate, Mr. DeMore attended Gettysburg College, and he received a Bachelor of Arts in 1995.
