Speaker Information

J. Timothy Nardell

Featured keynote speaker, attorney J. Timothy Nardell (Nardell Chitsaz & Associates LLP) is a graduate of UC Berkeley Boalt Hall School of Law, has been a civil litigator for over 20 years and has been recognized as a Super Lawyer for Northern California every year for the last decade. Tim contacted Legal Aid about how he could best help Marin’s low income immigrant residents. He immediately jumped in and has taken on several housing and employment matters from Legal Aid of Marin on behalf of low income and immigrant workers and tenants. After personally inspecting an apartment complex and meeting with tenants and residents about habitability issues, Tim agreed to represent the tenants in their fight for better housing. In addition, Tim brought to quick and successful resolution the wrongful termination and wage violation case of a low income senior who was extremely grateful for Tim’s efficient and excellent results.
