Our Attorneys

Timothy R. Trichler, B.B.A., M.B.A., J.D earned his Bachelors and Masters degree from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. He then went on to earn his Doctorate in Lansing, Michigan. He was a college professor for several years before committing all his efforts to practicing law in 1989.

Timothy lives on Lake Mitchell in Cadillac Michigan with his wife Deb. They have been married over 40 years. They have two children, Timothy Trichler Jr., MD, and Teresa Trichler, JD. and three grand children. In his spare time, Tim enjoys playing pool/billiards, fishing and training his Doberman. He generally stays in Cadillac in the Winter.

As a senior lawyer, Trichler now concentrates his practice in Bankruptcy and no longer takes divorce or criminal cases. Trichler states: “We practice bankruptcy because these cases really help people get their life back on track. It is very rewarding to make a difference.”

Attorney Teresa Trichler Womble was born and raised in West Michigan. She attended Grand Valley State University where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology, with a minor in English. Teresa stayed in West Michigan to follow her father’s footsteps and attend Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Teresa worked for her father, Attorney Timothy R. Trichler, growing up as an office assistant and paralegal, and was honored to continue working with him after she attend law school and passed the bar.

When Teresa isn’t working, she prioritizes spending time with her family and animals. At home are her husband, 12 year old Doberman Pinscher, 5 year old “free” cat, and bearded dragon. With ten nieces and nephews, she spends a lot of time at the park, zoo, and doing craft projects with the kids. Some of her favorite, and most time-consuming projects have been the quilts and Halloween costumes she’s gifted her family. Teresa also enjoys taking part in the Block of the Month Club at the local quilting shop. In the summer months, you can either find Teresa in her gardens, or volunteering in her community, most recently joining the City of Wyoming Community Enrichment Commission, which puts on the concerts in Lamar Park on Tuesday nights.
