So enough about our résumés. This is a big decision you need to make—which attorney is right for you? Why don’t I take a minute to tell you a little bit about who we are and why I believe that our law firm will be the best fit for you and your family.
My name is John Medler. I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. When I was fifteen, I tried out for a high school play, South Pacific, at a local high school near my house. I got a very minor part in the play—I used to joke that I was a tree. But the star of the play was a red-headed girl named Tammy. I fell head-over-heels in love with her in 1978, and I have never turned back. We have been together for over 40 years. She is the love of my life.
After high school graduation, I went to Brown University in Rhode Island, while Tammy went to Washington University in St. Louis. We had a long-distance relationship for four years and ran up a lot of long-distance telephone bills. In 1985, Tammy and I both attended the same law school, Washington University Law School in St. Louis. We married during our second year of law school and began a family shortly thereafter. We were penniless but happy, and excited about the future.
