Timothy C. Parlatore concentrates his practice in the areas of white-collar litigation, investigations, and civil litigation. Timothy joined FisherBroyles after having built an impressive track record of legal victories across many jurisdictions. He is known for his legal acumen, thoroughness, compassion, strong presence, and fierce advocacy.

Mr. Parlatore has successfully handled a myriad of complex criminal cases including, securities fraud, mail and wire fraud, corporate espionage, Ponzi schemes, money laundering, public corruption, and Social Security, Medicare, and insurance fraud and murder-for-hire. He also handles a wide array of civil cases including defamation, shareholder derivative suits, professional malpractice, and intellectual property litigation.

Mr. Parlatore is no stranger to the spotlight, as he has proved time and again that he performs best under pressure and in high-profile cases where adept media relations are a necessity. He has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The NY Daily News, The NY Post, Sports Illustrated, Navy Times and Esquire Magazine for multiple high profile cases that he has handled. He made worldwide headlines for winning a not-guilty verdict for the men who parachuted off the World Trade Center and his accomplishments have been covered extensively in the New York Law Journal. He has appeared on NBC Nightly News, ABC Good Morning America, CBS Evening News and WPIX’s Morning Show. While he is comfortable handling such high-profile cases, he takes particular pride in the ability to handle cases quietly, without any headlines, to protect his clients’ images and reputations.

Mr. Parlatore’s career path to FisherBroyles is somewhat unique, because rather than working at a large law firm, he worked at multiple notable boutique white-collar firms, where he was able to work with and learn directly from several iconic defense attorneys, such as Edward W. Hayes, Ronald P. Fischetti, and Bruce Cutler. He ran a successful solo practice before joining FisherBroyles.

In addition to his impressive legal experience, Mr. Parlatore is heavily influenced by his military experience, as a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom. He served as a Surface Warfare Officer on board the USS NORMANDY, and later as Commanding Officer of a reserve military police unit, Naval Security Forces LaMaddalena. He was also a member of the US Navy Marksmanship team. He continues to serve as the Director of Officer Education for the New York Guard, where he holds a commission as a Major in the Judge Advocate General Corps.

Mr. Parlatore has donated his time to providing low-cost legal services to military members and has represented soldiers in several notable combat-related murder cases arising from events that occurred on the battlefields or Iraq and Afghanistan.
