New Dinsmore Attorney Tim Wilson Inspired by Firm's Steadfast Commitment to LGBTQ+ Equality

November 10, 2021News Releases

In Dinsmore, I have found a professional home where my whole self, professional practice, and civic passions are aligned, valued, and celebrated.

Dinsmore is pleased to welcome private client and family wealth planning attorney Tim Wilson to the firm's Columbus office. Wilson has spent more than a decade at a number of other firms, largely practicing in tax, estate planning and estate administration. He shared his thoughts on why Dinsmore was the best fit for his practice, values and community work. Read what he had to say below:

I decided to join Dinsmore because of the firm’s prestigious reputation, nationwide presence and commitment to LGBTQ+ equality. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, it was vital for me to join a team that shares my values and in which I could thrive.

When it comes to thriving, the practice of law demands the whole of your person: energy, talents, heart and spirit. I have spent decades in environments where I could not bring my whole self to the table, and the impact of that was profound. Surrounded by the Dinsmore LGBTQ+ affinity group, which boasts more than 200 attorneys and staff members, I am now one of many whose whole self is affirmed, celebrated, and cultivated to thrive.

My practice centers around families, and I work hard to advance and protect the best interests of all my clients, including my LGBTQ+ clients. In addition to my practice, I also volunteer for the Human Rights Campaign as a member of its Columbus Steering Committee to assist in its efforts to advance full equality in Ohio and across the nation.

Dinsmore goes beyond a mere academic commitment to equality, and the firm’s intentionality has created a culture in which diversity is fostered and celebrated. Dinsmore's commitment includes policies like prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, providing equal medical benefits in same- and different-sex spouses, providing equal health coverage for transgender individuals without exclusion for medically necessary care, conducting trainings on LGBTQ+ equality, appointing a chief equity and inclusion officer, and serving the LGBTQ+ community through excellent legal representation, LGBTQ+ scholarships, and sponsoring numerous LGBTQ+-focused events around the nation.
