Daniel Timm, CCSK Law

I am a family man, businessman, and attorney from Valparaiso. After 11 years in business and law as a financial advisor, Chief of Staff for the Porter County Assessor’s Office, and most recently as a Corporate General Counsel in the tech industry, I decided in 2018 to bring my experience to CCSK Law to work with small business owners & corporations, as well as private clients in business, contract, litigation, real estate, labor, and employment areas of law. My understanding and experience in business provides my clients practical solutions for execution in a variety of capacities. As an active volunteer & community leader, I can attest that my purpose for practicing law is my passion to serve. I really enjoy problem-solving for people, great companies, and in public service and helping them all achieve their desired results. So, I’m on a mission to bring a practical approach to the law and change the expectation level that people and companies have for the legal profession by delivering excellent and expedited client service while delivering fantastic results.
