Tim Kolaya


Tim Kolaya concentrates on commercial litigation in federal and state courts, as well as arbitration panels, with a primary focus on real estate and construction matters. Tim counsels clients on a wide array of disputes involving commercial transactions, contract challenges, class actions, construction defects, real estate transactions, business torts, fraud, deceptive and unfair trade practices, fiduciary relationships, insurance, products liability, and personal injury claims.

Prior to joining Stumphauzer Foslid Sloman Ross & Kolaya, Tim worked for more than 11 years at the Miami office of the international law firm of Greenberg Traurig, where he tried several cases and handled significant litigation matters on a local and national level for a variety of clients.  From defending Fortune 500 companies in class action litigation to representing local companies in contract disputes, Tim understands the level of focus and preparation that is necessary for each matter he handles. 

Before deciding to return to law school to become a lawyer, Tim studied civil engineering at the University of Miami and continued on to obtain a Master’s Degree in civil engineering and construction management from Georgia Tech.  He then worked as a project manager for two of the top 100 largest construction companies in the country, overseeing all aspects of his projects, which included office buildings, condominium towers, restaurants, municipal buildings, and manufacturing facilities.  With this technical background, Tim is quickly able to learn and understand his clients’ business needs, and puts his analytical thinking to work when resolving his clients’ legal matters.

In addition to his active law practice, Tim is a member of the Civil Rules Committee for The Florida Bar, the Board of Directors of the University of Miami Law Alumni Association, and the Spellman-Hoeveler Chapter of the American Inns of Court.  Tim also dedicates significant time as a volunteer leader for the Parkinson’s Foundation, where he serves as a member of the national Development Committee and Chair of the foundation’s South Florida Chapter.
