Vincent V. "Trey" Tumminello III
Taylor, Porter, Brooks & Phillips, LLP
Areas of Practice:
Commercial Transactions and Commercial Litigation.
Favorite BRBA project or event:
Belly Up with the Bar. Belly Up is a great opportunity for the Baton Rouge legal community to come together for a fun night to benefit a great cause. The food is always great.
I am the oldest of four siblings, who now live in Fort Worth, Houston, and Chicago. I married my incredible wife, Amanda, in 2014. Since we don't have children at this point, our only dependent is our dog, Ed.
Baton Rouge traffic, particularly the absurd bottlenecks at the I-10-110 merger and the 10-12 split.
I, admittedly, have very strange musical taste but my favorite genres are big band music (Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc.) and 90s to 2000s country (Garth Brooks, George Strait, Reba).
Favorite attorney portrayed in a movie:
Vinny Gambini, "My Cousin Vinny" -- not just for the namesake!
New Southern Pecan Pie. It basically combines cheesecake and pecan pie. I really need to turn that answer into "kale" or "grilled chicken breast," but I'm not there.
I recently had the honor of coordinating the Taylor Porter flood recovery work crews to help our impacted employees clean out their homes. While it was a heartbreaking experience to see our co-workers lose everything, it was also a meaningful opportunity for teamwork and generosity, watching all of Taylor Porter come together to help our fellow attorneys and staff.
Just finished Stephen King's "11/22/63" and started "Live from New York" by James Miller and Tom Shales.
Advice for law students:
Treat law school like a job. Get to school early. Stay until 5:30 p.m. every day. Then, go home and think about anything else. Do that every day and then you generally won't have to work as much "overtime" around exams.
If you could be anyone else for a day, who would you be?
I'd probably choose any incredible athlete (like Lebron James or Usain Bolt) just to feel what it'd be like to be that athletic.
How to you begin your workday?
I take our dog, Ed, for a walk. The length of the walk generally depends on how long it takes me to get out of bed.
What was your first job?
I was a "chicken stacker" at Southern Cold Storage. Shipments of chicken would come in, and we would load them onto pallets to be frozen. The biggest advantage was staying cool in the storage facility during the summer.
