Tim McNair is an attorney admitted to practice in 1981.

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 has been recognized as the leading pro bono attorney by the Erie County and Pennsylvania Bar Associations, and recently was awarded the George F.

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.
