Tim White has a Personal Injury client base as diverse as Australian society itself and embraces unique elements related to his varied outside interests.

Chief among them is Tim’s membership of the Air Force Reserves, in which he serves as a Legal Officer with the rank of Squadron Leader. This pursuit has inspired Tim to become one of very few Adelaide lawyers to specialise in representing Defence Force personnel and their families.

Tim has assisted veterans from World War 2, Korea and Vietnam, as well as currently-serving personnel from Middle East conflicts. He has tackled historic and complex claims on behalf of veterans exposed to atomic bomb tests at Maralinga in the 1950’s and bombing at Hiroshima.

An important legal precedent has been credited to Tim, through his successful pursuit of a stress claim for a Vietnam veteran. Reaching the nation’s second-highest court, the six-year legal battle saw Tim draw on the lessons he has learned from another of his outside passions – marathon running.

Indeed the same tenacity, commitment and discipline that Tim shows on long-distance runs is also a distinctive feature of his service as a lawyer.

In addition, Tim thrives on the wide variety of his clientele – from CEO’s to apprentices. He devotes unquestionable commitment to clients injured in motor vehicle accidents, at work and those suffering life threatening diseases due to exposure to asbestos.

His desire to fight for the underdog is his strongest professional motivation; and one which has made him a pillar of the firm through his long career with TGB.
