Bio & Experience

Biography

Born and raised in Lubbock, Texas, Tim Goss attended college at the University of North Texas graduating in 1983 (B.B.A.). Following college, Tim enrolled at Baylor University School of Law, where he was the Casenote Editor for the Baylor Law Review (1985-1986) and graduated cum laude and first in his class in 1986.

Experience

Mr. Goss has over 35 years of experience litigating high-stakes cases.

Prior to forming Freese & Goss, Mr. Goss was a member of the Dallas office of Andrews & Kurth, L.L.P, where he began his legal career in 1986. He specialized in savings and loan litigation, securities litigation, and other complex commercial disputes. In 1992, he joined the Dallas office and was a partner of Scott, Douglass & Luton, L.L.P. In 1994, he co-founded Capshaw, Goss & Bowers.

After forming his own firm and switching to the plaintiff’s side, Tim specialized in consumer class actions, in particular abusive mortgage lending cases. He was appointed class counsel in dozens of nationwide class actions. As a direct result of his efforts, the United States Congress passed private mortgage insurance legislation, which resulted in mandated cancellation of hundreds of thousands of mortgage insurance policies. The passage of the legislation resulted in several billions of dollars of savings for homeowners nationwide. Tim also pursued litigation against a large collection agency and obtained a million-dollar class action recovery for the benefit of the Attorneys General for 5 states.

Since forming Freese & Goss in 2007, Tim has dedicated his practice to representing individuals harmed by the negligence of others. He has successfully pursued mass tort cases on behalf of thousands of victims of wrongful practices by companies that have manufactured or distributed dangerous drugs, medical devices, and other consumer products. He has also represented individuals fatally and catastrophically injured in accidents, 18-wheeler collisions, and workplace incidents. Tim has successfully recovered $1 billion dollars in recoveries for his clients.
