Timothy Snowball

Timothy R. Snowball is an attorney at Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF). His practice spans PLF’s issue areas, with a particular focus on individual rights, including Americans’ Fourth Amendment right to be free from arbitrary warrantless searches in the comfort and safety of their homes. Tim is licensed to practice in California, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and various U.S. District Courts.

Tim graduated with honors from Grossmont College in 2011 with an Associate’s Degree in Political Science. After Grossmont, Tim transferred to UC Berkeley, where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Government and Politics. After finishing at Berkeley, Tim matriculated to The George Washington University Law School in Washington, DC, where he received his Juris Doctor.

At GW, Tim served as a Notes Editor on the Federal Circuit Bar Journal and coach on the Mock Trial Skills Board. He was also an active member of GW’s chapter of the Federalist Society. Upon graduation, Tim received both the President’s Volunteer Service Award and Pro Bono Service Award for having donated over 500 hours of pro bono service.

Before joining PLF, Tim had stints at the Institute for Justice, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, U.S. Department of Justice, Orleans Public Defenders Office, and over a decade of management experience of both small and large teams.

Tim is a regular op-ed contributor to several national publications, including The Hill, The Daily Caller, and The Daily Journal. Additionally, he has participated in over 80 media interviews on regional and nationally syndicated broadcasts. Tim also regularly provides content on the PLF Blog, and has been featured on PLF’s YouTube channel. He regularly delivers speeches and presentations on the U.S. Constitution, individual liberty, and the rule of law.

When he is not fighting to protect and enforce the Bill of Rights, you can find Tim being a huge film nerd, at the gym, with his nose stuck in a book, or exploring the greater Sacramento area.
