Attorney Timothy S. Riley

Divorce & Family Law Attorney

In practice since 1985, Attorney Timothy S. Riley attended the University of Wisconsin at Madison, majoring in Television Production Direction, with a minor in Political Science. He earned his law degree (J. D.) at the University of Wisconsin, School of Law, Madison, Wisconsin in 1985. He is a member of the Wisconsin State Bar, and in the Wisconsin State Bar, Family Law Section. He is also a member of the Board of Directors to the Stoughton Center for Performing Arts.

Timothy S. Riley is married with two children. He was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. He now makes his home in Stoughton, Wisconsin. A former professional singer and actor, Timothy has recently directed several musicals for the Stoughton Village Players. His mother, Jean Riley, was a founding member and performer with the Children’s Theatre of Madison.

Being his father's son, Timothy began skating at about the same time he learned to walk, and he played and coached hockey for years.

Timothy is one of three siblings who are third generation attorneys in the Riley family. His grandfather Miles C. Riley was a Federal Judge (referee) in bankruptcy, the Secretary of Commerce for the State of Wisconsin as well as a distinguished practitioner for several decades. His father John L. Riley was a renowned and highly respected attorney who practiced law for five decades. Incidentally, John L. Riley was also the first hockey coach of the modern era at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and is a member of several Hockey Halls of Fame.

While some might consider this lineage a genetic disease, Tim is proud of his heritage and credits his knowledge of the law, skills as an advocate and legal temperament to his heritage and lessons learned from his family.
