Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Tim McNair is an attorney admitted to practice in 1981. He concentrates his practice in the field of litigation, representing people who have been injured physically, as in car crashes, at work, or financially through unfair and discriminatory job termination or refusal to hire. He also closes real estate and handles estate settlements.

Attorney McNair is a member of the American Association for Justice (formerly, Association of Trial Lawyers of America), the Pennsylvania Association for Justice (formerly Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association), Pennsylvania and Erie County Bar Associations. He has served as the Chair of the PAAJ Workers Compensation Section, the Erie County Bar Association Workers Compensation section, the ECBA Civil Rules Committee, has presented Continuing Legal Education Seminars for the PAAJ, and is an active member of the Erie County (PA) Democratic Committee, serving on the Executive Committee. He also serves as Board Chair of Empower Erie, a nonprofit aimed at getting state approval for the Erie County Community College. He serves on numerous boards and is active in several community associations.

He has been recognized as the leading pro bono attorney by the Erie County and Pennsylvania Bar Associations, and recently was awarded the George F. Douglas, Jr., Amicus Curiae Award by the Pennsylvania Association for Justice for his contributions to that Committee.

He is married with four grown children and two grandchildren and has resided in Erie, Pennsylvania for 37 years.

Among his most satisfying accomplishments was serving on the trial team in Bryan v. Erie County Office of Children and Youth, which resulted in an $8.7 million verdict for a child who was victimized by a sexual predator placed in his home by the agency.
