As a third-generation attorney, JT grew up listening to the “war stories” of his grandfather and uncle (both distinguished attorneys). Because of this, JT knew he wanted to be a lawyer at an early age. He has learned the importance of listening to his clients. With his years of experience, he offers clients a unique approach to the law practice in truly caring about their personal and emotional needs that go along with their legal matters. JT feels that: “Being a lawyer has given me the opportunity to fix bad situations that clients find themselves in. I have never had a client that wanted to have to come see me (a lawyer)! They are real people with real problems. I respect them. I am old fashioned in that regard.”

JT’s “Why”

Rarely on a man’s death bed has he said: “I wish I had spent more time at the office!” Being a husband, father, and respected man are JT’s first priorities in life. He has an incredible wife, Gina. They have six children, five grandchildren, a wonderful dog, and a cat (JT is allergic to cats). They live on a lake, push a lot of water and participate in water sports. He is an avid golfer and loves mother nature and hunting with friends. He is fine with having his friends cheat on him in cards. He “says” he can still play a pretty good game of chess. JT and his wife say they are lucky enough to be able to travel a lot (primarily in the winter). Those who know JT, know him as “THE IRISHMAN.” St. Patrick’s Day is BIG in his family. He claims that he usually wins “all” of the costume contests and is full of blarney (we can’t help but believe him!).
