Tim Feth began his legal career with Rafel Law Group in 2016 and became a partner in 2022. Before practicing law, he grew up in eastern Washington, graduated summa cum laude from Central Washington University with a degree in philosophy, and earned his law degree from the University of Washington with honors.

Tim represents community association clients in nearly all aspects of general counsel and litigation. He enjoys the many challenges of community association law and helps his clients navigate, among other things, rule enforcement, governing document amendments, discrimination claims, budget ratification, and contact review. He appreciates the opportunity to help his clients not only resolve disputes, but to avoid them in the first place. He also assists community association clients in pursuing building warranty claims before litigation and, when needed, successfully litigates construction defect cases to resolution. Tim also represents non-community association clients in litigation and has experience with view disputes, boundary disputes, commercial disputes, and condemnation.

When he’s not in the office, Tim enjoys playing and watching soccer, making cocktails for his book club meetings, and spending time with his wife, Tiffinie, and son, Ozzie.
