Board Member Profile: Tim Walters

Back

Tim Walters is a Community Representative on The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland Board of Directors, nominated by Merrick House. After having spent most of his life involved in community advocacy, Tim has brought a wealth of experience with him to the Legal Aid’s leadership, and he currently chairs Legal Aid’s committee to review grievances from clients.

Tim believes that his experience on Legal Aid’s Board of Directors is a great learning experience that keeps him continually engaged. He is appreciative of how Community Representatives have gained a greater voice in both the operation and the budget priorities of the organization. Thomas Mlakar, Legal Aid’s Deputy Director for Advocacy, works closely with Tim and feels fortunate to have his advice and counsel, “Tim is a tremendous leader, in every sense of the word. He brings a wealth of experience with him, and he’s not afraid to be direct. We are lucky to have him.”

Tim feels it is significant for everyone to realize that the mission and the needs on the ground far exceed the budgets. He thinks that no one should be left without access to justice, and that securing it should be important to everyone in society, not just those involved at Legal Aid.
