Biography

I am President and Senior Partner of Tauber Law Offices. I have been practicing law for almost 45 years, and I cannot imagine doing anything else. I love what I do.

Over the course of my legal career, I have handled many complex cases for clients in various areas of the law. I have significant experience with personal injury litigation, probate and estate planning, corporate law, municipal law, real estate, business transactions and general civil litigation. I have also represented the Town of Highland and the School Town of Highland for approximately 40 years, and I have significant ties to the community. Early in my career, I was involved in the landmark case of Doe v. Renfrow while representing the School Town of Highland, which I successfully argued before the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. That case continues to be recognized as legal precedent today.

Despite my dedication and love for the law, the center of my world is now the gift of my nine grandchildren.I am also very proud of the accomplishment of forming this very law firm with my children.

I am a 1971 graduate of Valparaiso University with a B.A. in Government and Spanish. I went on to receive my J.D. at Valparaiso University School of Law in 1974, graduating magna cum laude.

Upon receiving my J.D., I joined the American Bar Association and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana. Four years later, I was admitted to the U.S. Court of Appeals 7th Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court in 1981.

I was born in Hammond, Indiana and graduated from Highland High School in 1967. I am the proud father of four children: Tara, Justin, Brandon and Jared, and grandfather of nine. I enjoy traveling with my wife of over 45 years, and I am also an avid fan of the Chicago Bears, Bulls, and Cubs.
