As the leader of MacElree Harvey’s personal injury practice, regional legal representative Tim Rayne has been assisting Chester County mishap victims get fair treatment from insurance companies for over 25 years. It is why he ended up being legal representative and what drives him every single day to tirelessly aim to get justice for his clients.
Since finishing law school, Tim has actually always been a different type of personal injury lawyer from those represented as “ambulance chasers” or on TV promising “big cash payments”.
Said Tim, “I believe a Personal Injury case has to do with accountability and fairness. In a normal case, the Defendant has actually broken a security rule and has actually triggered unnecessary injury and needs to be held accountable to make the community much safer. At the very same time, the victim has suffered injuries and has expenses that are worthy of to be fairly compensated. My mission is to win that fair compensation.”
Tim is one of Chester County’s own. His regional roots run deep. He was born and raised and has lived almost his whole life in Kennett Square. Tim’s parents, Malcom Rayne and Susan Woodward were both local teachers (in fact, Tim’s father was his fifth grade teacher). Inspired by two uncles who were local lawyers, George Brutcher/Kennett Square and Tim Barnard/ Media, Tim wished to be a trial lawyer from an extremely young age. He was likewise always entrepreneurial. He started a vehicle wash company as a young teenager, a fire wood cutting organization in high school and ultimately a house painting company in college working his way through the University of Delaware running the business between classes. Working full time, he went to law school during the night at Widener University, where he satisfied his now spouse of nearly 30 years, Amee. In his last year of law school, Tim got a clerking position with local legal legend, William Gallagher who directed the full-service Chester County company, MacElree Harvey and the rest is history. He has actually been at MacElree Harvey for his whole 25-plus-year legal profession, rising from Clerk to Associate to Partner and member of the firm’s Executive Group.
And it is quite a law practice to be proud of-top resources, top legal representatives and staff and more. MacElree Harvey has been acknowledged by U.S. News and World Report as one of the “Finest Law Office in America” and by the Philadelphia Organization Journal as one of the “Best Places to Work in PA.” MacElree Harvey has workplaces situated in West Chester, Kennett Square, Philadelphia, Centreville and Hockessin, Delaware.
Today, Tim deals with a variety of personal injury matters: automobile, truck, motorcycle, and pedestrian mishaps, slip and falls, hazardous product cases, canine bites and medical malpractice. “I like the reality that although I focus my practice in one area of the law, every case is different. I am a writer. I dig deep to learn more about my customer and try to really comprehend how and why the mishap took place so that I can tell a compelling story and win a reasonable recovery for my customer. My goal is also to teach the Defendant a lesson and make the world a more secure place.”
Tim has actually had some crazy cases in his profession: a customer who was seriously injured in an operating space fire, an automobile accident brought on by horses that got away from a local farm and crashed through a cars and truck window, and even a male shot in a hunting accident.
In addition to representing clients, Tim has made it one of his objectives to educate the public on how they can safeguard themselves and their families with correct insurance options. Tim’s book, Securing Your Household from Accidents, his hundreds of YouTube videos, blog sites on his website, www.timraynelaw.com, articles in the Daily Local -are all intended to educate individuals on important legal subjects and keep them safe.
“One of the most rewarding things to me is when something I’ve discussed in my articles or videos helps someone. For instance, a friend of mine was seriously hurt in a vehicle mishap, and I had the ability to get him a fair recovery solely because he had actually read my short articles and seen my videos about the importance of buying Underinsurance protection.”
Tim’s workplaces remain in Kennett Square and West Chester. In his free time, Tim enjoys taking a trip with his better half and his 2 kids, Sierra and Mac and delights in golf, paddle tennis and, yes, browsing. Ask him about it.
