During his time with the TABC, Tim litigated $665,892 in civil penalties and was involved in the cancellation or denial of 128 permits. Tim also litigated one of the largest civil penalties in the history of the TABC: Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission v. Airport Marina Hotel Inc., SOAH Docket No. 458-04-6606 (May 11, 2005).
In 2006, Tim went into private practice, founding Griffith Firm. In 2020, Griffith Firm was renamed Griffith & Hughes.
