    Attorney Profile

    With a reputation as one of Rhode Island's leading family law attorneys, Timothy J. Conlon is the founder of his own firm based in Providence, with offices in Rhode Island and Connecticut. He provides dedicated assistance to people throughout the state who are facing family crisis - the end of their marriage, difficult issues of child custody and visitation, or the division of complex assets, including family business. He has zealously advocated on behalf of child sexual abuse victims and their families, winning the ‘Case of the Year’ award from Rhode Island’s Association for Justice for his work representing victims of clergy abuse.

    A forceful advocate for his clients in the courtroom, Mr. Conlon also has extensive experience in mediation, negotiations and arbitration, and he will where applicable attempt to have his clients reach an accord on these issues through those alternative dispute resolution methods.

He has also assisted victims of domestic violence who are seeking appropriate protective orders. Mr. Conlon's successful track record and high degree of ethics in all of these endeavors have earned him the high regard of his fellow professionals. He has received an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo. In addition, he has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America. Admitted to practice before all Rhode Island state courts, Mr. Conlon is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island.

    After graduating from Vanderbilt University Law School in 1980, Mr. Conlon served as a law clerk for judges on the Rhode Island Superior Court.
