Biography

Timothy (TJ) Walczak is an owner and founder of Walczak Hernandez, P.C. TJ’s unique focus and passion for his clients stems from over 16 years of public service, which leads to great client satisfaction. TJ concentrates his practice on family law and real estate law. TJ is honorably discharged from the U.S. Air Force and has spent over 16 years serving the public both as a police officer and firefighter.

He personally experienced divorce and the complexity of raising children in a two-household environment. This experience allows him to advocate effectively and empathize with his clients.
