Timothy J. Conlon is one of the leading divorce attorneys in Rhode Island and the surrounding region. He is well-versed in difficult family law conflicts such as divorce, child custody, visitation, child/spousal support, interstate relocation, property division and more. Perhaps one of Tim's strongest assets is his skill and tenacity in digital discovery during family law cases, uncovering hidden assets and other secrets the other party may be hiding during a divorce or separation.

Our firm has also worked extensively with child sex abuse victims and their family members in advocating for just compensation from predators and abusers, as well as their employers. Tim and his team have an impressive track record of success in securing compensation from organizations such as schools and religious institutions who employ sexual predators.

Tim has always been a hard worker, paying his way through college by working as a laborer in the construction industry. He studied Music and Electrical Engineering, as well as Philosophy and Political Science at Brown. I was teased as a ‘crusader rabbit' by a high school teacher - who liked to pick on my less verbal classmates, and found me jumping to their defense. He didn't want to joust with me in front of the class, and I now know that he knew then I was more than his match. I just hated to see someone taken advantage of.

"One of the things that means a lot to me is the cards that I get, sometimes years and even decades after representing a client, telling me I made a difference. I get one every year from a client whose case closed 15 years ago. She was on the wrong end of parental alienation, and barely saw her children. Her ex had convinced them she ‘abandoned' them, and instilled deep anger that caused them to act out to avoid ‘having' to visit. It took many months, but we got through it, and I get pictures of her and the now adult kids enjoying trips and holidays - time together." - Attorney Tim Conlon
