About the author (2007)

Timothy N. Baldwin graduated from the University of West Florida in 2001 with a bachelor of arts degree. He went on to attend Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, where he received his juris doctor degree in 2004. After becoming licensed to practice law in Florida, Baldwin became a Florida state prosecutor under former state attorney Curtis Golden and current state attorney William Bill Eddins. In 2006, Baldwin started his own law practice in Pensacola, Florida, where he now specializes in property management representation. Like his father, Chuck Baldwin (who was the presidential candidate for the Constitution Party in 2008), Tim believes strongly in the principles that founded America, and he believes that to secure freedom for his posterity, there needs to be a resurrection and revival of the spirit of freedom in America.
