Tom did an awesome job. This was a family law suit and he was very helpful, professional, and understanding. We were very lucky to have him represent us.

Angela K. Brand

Carrie is an excellent attorney, and I’m so thankful to have found her. There is not enough space to list all of the good things about her work because she’s that good! Carrie represented me in a challenging divorce case and helped me obtain a fair and equitable settlement. Her knowledge of the law and, in my case, the process helped to alleviate my stress because I knew I could count on her 100%. Carrie is a consummate professional who brings a supportive vibe to the care she provides. In the future, my family and I will continue to use Carrie for all our legal matters.

Client comment about Timothy P. Young

"Thanks for all your help Tim. You are one terrific guy and lawyer. So blessed to have you helping me through life's ups and downs."

Andrea, Client comment about Timothy P. Young

Thanks again for all your help, you cannot understand how helpful you were to me during this process! I hope I don't know anybody that needs to go through something similar, but if they do I will enthusiastically recommend you as a representative that is caring yet very knowledgeable and able to cut through to know what somebody truly needs.

Client Comment About Timothy P. Young

Tom did a great job supporting and defending us during a difficult time!


I have been a criminal justice professional for 50 years, in business for 30 years. Tom is the best attorney I met or employed in all of these years!

Mark L.

Many thanks, Tom, for all your help, guidance and hard work. But most of all your preparedness – you out wit them, out strategized them, and did an excellent job. We very much appreciate everything you did on our behalf. And in the process, feel we made a new friend.


My family has worked with this firm for decades, they have handled all of our estate planning needs. Working first with Mark Grua and most recently with Carrie S. Ihrig Freeman & Mark. Carrie helped me through managing my first Trustee role on a very involved/complicated estate. Carrie was very patient with me and compassionate. Her knowledge, experience, guidance and availability got me through the process successfully. We were able to meet all of the trust requests. The entire staff at Grua, Tupper & Young are a pleasure to work with and I will continue to recommend them.
