Law & Policy Staff Attorney
Coalition to Stop Gun Violence
Tim Carey, J.D., serves at the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence as a Law & Policy Staff Attorney. He is responsible for working with the Senior Director of Law & Policy to analyze and draft legislation, perform legal research and writing, and find ways to make complex legal information accessible to those who need it.
Before joining the CSGV team, Tim was deeply involved in child welfare law and policy advocacy. He was a Child Advocacy attorney in Baltimore, Maryland, representing children ages 0-21 in abuse and neglect cases. As a law student in Georgia, Tim weathered multiple legislative sessions working as a child policy advocate and in the office of a state senator. Tim was drawn to CSGV after witnessing the irreparable damage gun violence causes the youth and communities he has worked with.
A native to Maryland, Tim received his bachelor’s degree from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in Philosophy and Psychology, focusing his research on social justice education. He earned his juris doctorate from Emory University School of Law in 2018 and specialized in child welfare, mental health, and civil rights law. When he’s not immersed in legal materials, you can find Tim running, playing music, and caring for animals.
