He is a planner by nature, and one who enjoys thinking ahead with an individual and family concerning the care of loved ones, protection and preservation of assets and legacy, charitable giving and settling the estate with the least time, hassle and expense.

Tim earned his law degree from Boston College School of Law in 1984; his Bachelor of Arts degree from Bowdoin College was earned with summa cum laude distinction in 1980 with majors in music and economics.

He is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and is a member of the Massachusetts Bar Association, WealthCounsel™, the Norfolk and Plymouth Estate Planning Council, and is a board member and officer of the Massachusetts Forum of Estate Planning Attorneys, Inc. (2008-, Pres. 2012, 2017).

He was recognized by the Massachusetts Bar Association as one of three recipients of its Going Green Award for innovation in greening the practice of law.

He has developed numerous trademarked programs and resources that make the estate planning and probate processes more accessible, organized, and easily maintained.

Tim and his wife, Ruth reside in Medfield, Massachusetts and have been blessed with eight beloved children, including four by adoption.

“Tim is not only extremely patient in explaining somewhat confusing legal concepts — even multiple times — and in answering questions on our part, but he also displays both sensitivity and compassion in his counseling. We have found that dealing with these issues involves emotions and issues of family dynamics, and Tim accounts for these when providing legal advice and recommendations.”

“I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Tim over many years now. He has guided my husband and me through a myriad of issues from buying investment property to starting my business. Just recently Tim counseled us on creating a Family Trust Plan for our children. His knowledge has been invaluable to us.
I have also worked with Tim professionally as we share a common interest in the financial world. He has a dogged determination to provide the best possible experience for those who engage with him.He is a skilled professional indeed.”

“For over three years, my husband and I kept putting off our estate planning. Once we met with Atty Borchers, we had a clear understanding of how to protect our assets, and visual aids and instructions that were easy for us to understand. After a few meetings to discuss our options and decide on a plan, all of the paperwork was expeditiously prepared and it was done! Atty Borchers is knowledgeable, compassionate, and efficient. His staff is wonderful also. We are so happy he helped us and removed a heavy burden in our lives.”
