After rotational assignments to executive agencies during the administration of President Jimmy Carter, including stints at the Department of Justice and the Office of Management and Budget, Thimi joined the staff of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. In 1985, Thimi was appointed Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Columbia where he quickly developed a reputation as an outstanding trial attorney.
In 1989, Thimi returned to Maine as an Assistant United States Attorney in Portland.

In 1995, after 17 years of public service, Thimi left the United States Attorney’s Office and entered the private practice of law. As a private attorney, Thimi has developed a reputation for exceptional courtroom advocacy on behalf of clients in the areas of white collar criminal defense, commercial and employment disputes, regulatory compliance, taxation, environmental accidents and cases involving serious personal injuries and death. Among Thimi’s current and former clients are physicians and health care providers, large and small businesses, national insurers, real estate professionals, and scores of private individuals in need of an experienced and capable trial attorney. Thimi holds an AV Rating from the Martindale Hubbell national directory of lawyers, its “preeminent” rating for legal ability and ethical standards, in the areas of Trial Practice, Civil Litigation, Commercial Law and Criminal Defense.
