Timothy Engler

Tim Engler, '76, was inducted as a fellow into The American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL) in Boca Raton, Fla. on March 4, 2017. Tim is a partner with Rembolt Ludtke and practices in the areas of business and commercial litigation, construction, employment, personal injury, including wrongful death, and has an active mediation/arbitration practice.

“Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds, who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.

Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5800 members in the United States and Canada, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows. The College maintains and seeks to improve the standards of trial practice, professionalism, ethics, and the administration of justice through education and public statements on important legal issues relating to its mission.  The College strongly supports the independence of the judiciary, trial by jury, respect for the rule of law, access to justice, and fair and just representation of all parties to legal proceedings. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.”

Tim Engler’s practice primarily involves helping both businesses and individuals resolve disputes through litigation, arbitration and mediation. He has jury trial experience, experience as an arbitrator and mediator, and he is one of eight Nebraska lawyers admitted to the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals. Most of his practice involves commercial disputes, personal injury, both plaintiff and defense, and employment litigation.

However, Tim’s experiences also include handling cases that involve class actions, patents and other IP cases, securities fraud, and RICO. Tim is very active in the Bar Association and currently serves as the President-Elect Designate of the NSBA.

Tim is a 1979 graduate of the University of Nebraska College of Law (JD) and a 1976 graduate of South Dakota State University (BS). When not practicing law, Tim enjoys playing golf and attending Nebraska sporting events.
