Timothy R. Fadel
Timothy R. Fadel is the son of legendary labor lawyer William I. Fadel, the nationally recognized expert on labor law and labor relations who represented organized labor for over 40 years. Labor law was a passion in the Fadel household and the topic of discussions at meals routinely focused on protecting the livelihood and legal rights of working men and women.
Tim is a proud graduate of the University of Dayton (B.A., 1998) and Cleveland Marshall College of Law-Cleveland State University (J.D., 2003). During the summer months of those years, Tim often clerked at his father’s law firm learning the basic fundamentals of the practice of law, particularly labor law. Following law school, Tim briefly worked at his father’s firm eventually leaving to become an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Cuyahoga County, Ohio. In 2010, he left the prosecutor’s office to rejoin his father at the Fadel & Beyer law firm focusing his practice on labor and employment cases.
Today, with his father retired, the lessons of his childhood have come full circle and it is now the son, Tim Fadel, who carries the standard of protecting the livelihood and legal rights of over 20,000 working men and women throughout the State of Ohio. It is his passion. His clients include International Union of Operating Engineers Local 18, the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers, and Grain Millers Union Local 19, and Service Equipment Maintenance Employees, Local 1.
Tim is a member of the Ohio State Bar Association and was selected as a “rising star” in the peer review ratings for Ohio’s Super Lawyers.
