Partner and Trial Attorney
Tim Sulolli has learned that success in the courtroom is not necessarily
achieved by trying to impress jurors with legalese. Instead, he has found
that the best outcomes result when jurors have a clear understanding of
the case. "What I try to do is present the case so the jury follows
it," he says. "I don't use complicated legal terminology;
I try to keep the case simple so the jury understands it."
Sulolli has followed that precept since launching his legal career in 1998
and has used it to secure numerous sizeable verdicts and settlements for
After receiving an undergraduate degree in business administration from
the University of Michigan-Dearborn in 1995, he attended the University
of Detroit-Mercy School of Law and got his J.D. in 1998. During law school,
he interned in the office of Southfield attorney Geoffrey Fieger and took
a job there after graduating. After a year, he moved to another Southfield
firm and then in 2004, he came to Goodman Acker P.C., where he has been
a partner since 2011.
Throughout his career as a Detroit personal injury attorney, he has focused
his practice solely on personal-injury litigation. He currently concentrates
his work on cases involving medical malpractice, vehicle accidents, and
premises liability, and has recorded a number of successful outcomes for
his clients. In 2012, for instance, he settled a motor-vehicle case for
$750,000 on behalf of his client and her husband, who were injured when
their vehicle was rear ended by a flatbed tow truck.
Like the other attorneys in the firm, Sulolli believes it's important
for lawyers to be active in professional organizations. He is a member
of the Michigan Association for Justice and was elected to its executive
board in 2011. He is also a member of the Albanian American Bar Association,
is active in the Albanian community in the Detroit area, and speaks fluent
Albanian. While Sulolli enjoys his professional and community activity,
it's his daily practice that brings him the most satisfaction. "I
like helping people who have been injured," he says.
