Cofounder and President
A native of Baltimore, Tim began his career with a goal to be the youngest Master Electrician in the State of Maryland. Through Tim’s hard work and commitment, he took every possible continuing education course offered through his first employer to achieve his goal. In 1982, at the age of 22, he passed and earned his Master Electrician certification, falling just 30 days short of being the youngest. While his goal was not quite attained, Tim was, and still is today, the second youngest person to ever become a Master Electrician in Maryland. He will employ this same drive and determination to your electrical project.
The following year he cofounded Larkin Electric. Tim continues to employ his hard work and commitment to bring unique and distinctive solutions to his clients in the Baltimore area.
Joe started in the Electrical business while still in high school, and continued his profession right after graduation. Joe earned his Master Electrician Certification while working for several electrical companies, including his cousin’s company, Larkin Electric. When his cousin, Jeffrey David Larkin, passed away unexpectedly, Joe and Tim wanted to continue the company to honor Joe’s cousin and to honor his wife and children. They knew that his legacy had to live on; hence, they cofounded, JDL Electric in 1983. Joe continues to study and keep current on new trends in the electrical industry, offering his knowledge, his years of experience, and a superior level of service to his clients and employees.

He brings the willingness and drive to do what it takes to get the project done.
