Timothy BaldwinTimothy K. Baldwin's practice is primarily that of an appellate litigator. He also represents clients in business litigation and employment matters. Tim has read every published decision from the Rhode Island and United States Supreme Courts from October 2012 to the present. He is an excellent researcher, writer and drafter, and persuasively applies the facts to the law both in written and oral form. He researches a wide array of issues arising in civil and criminal litigation, and monitors legal developments in state and federal courts. Tim has significant expertise in criminal reentry issues, and assisted in the creation and ongoing support of H.O.P.E. Court, the first federal reentry court in Rhode Island.

The Rhode Island Supreme Court licenses all lawyers in the general practice of law. The court does not license or certify any lawyer as an expert or specialist in any field of practice.

She represents school committees and other municipal employers in negotiations, and before administrative bodies and in the courts. On a daily basis Sara advises employers regarding best practices and compliance with federal and state labor, employment and education law. She also regularly prosecutes interest arbitration hearings on behalf of municipal employers. Sara has represented an employer in Superior Court and before the Supreme Court, successfully defending against a complex claim seeking injunctive relief, and prosecuting a matter of first impression addressing the intersection of state education and labor law.

Commission for Human Rights and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Among other issues, Matt has litigated contract and insurance disputes, benefits claims, discrimination claims, collection actions, and tort actions. He is a native Rhode Islander, and a member of the boards of directors of the Providence Community Boating Center and the East Side/Mount Hope YMCA.

Tim also represents employers in employment litigation matters before state and federal courts and administrative agencies. In addition, Tim counsels employers in all aspects of labor and employment law.

Prior to beginning his legal career, Tim worked in the commercial construction industry for several years in both unionized and non-unionized environments. During much of that time, Tim worked as a foreman/general foreman for a large Boston-based labor and demolition subcontractor with a unionized workforce, and he managed numerous commercial construction projects for the company throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Tim’s hands-on labor relations experience provides him with real world skills and unique insight into the issues presented by both unionized and a non-unionized workforces.
