Before moving to the St. Louis area with my family in 2002, I grew up in a small town in western Kentucky called Central City. There, I was ingrained with small town values: hard-work, responsibility, and community. Although this poor coal mining community did not have much, we prided ourselves in the way that we treated others. I still see that pride when I return there to visit my grandmother every summer and help with the “Sack Lunch Program,” a local faith-based organization focused on providing poor children with sack lunches during the summer when school is not in session.
Because my family values our faith, I enrolled at Chaminade in 2004. While there, I learned that every human life has dignity, that every persons deserves compassion, and that no one goes through life alone. Chaminade made me the man I am today. Upon graduation in 2011, my classmates and teachers awarded me the “Esto Vir” Award (Latin for “Be a Man”), the highest honor given to a student upon graduation. It remains one of my proudest accomplishments.
After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts, I returned to Kentucky to attend the University of Kentucky College of Law. As a Third Year law student at UK, I helped to lead the Trial Advocacy Team to a 3rd place finish at the National Trial Competition in Austin, Texas, the highest finish for UK in the school’s history. Moreover, as an overachieving student, I gained the requisite legal knowledge necessary to serve my clients.
I always say that life is the best education one can get. Even though I received the best education from some of the best institutions in the country, my most cherished and valuable education came from the summers I spent back in Central City serving poor children or the weekends spent talking with homeless men at a local shelter in St. Louis. As the owner of The Taormina Firm, I hope to use my vast education—both learned and experienced—to help you and your family “Make the Law Work for You.”
