Product description

Product Description

Rarely do we live the life we originally intended. We make up our minds and charge down the path we’ve chosen, only to find ourselves arriving at an unexpected destination. We don’t know how it happens, but after enough time has passed, we’re able to look back and assemble the puzzle pieces to make sense of it all.

This is the business of Joseph A. Garofalo’s autobiography, except his life’s puzzle pieces are not made up only of choices and events. They also predominately take the form of people. His story introduces the many relationships that make up who he is today—those who influenced him, the woman he married, the friends he made, his coworkers and bosses, his clients, and eventually, the partners he selected for his law firm.

His story that begins in a working-class Chicago neighborhood and ends with cofounding his own firm, as well as owning a California vineyard, is an inspirational journey of self-discovery that will draw out readers’ introspection and appreciation. Because it is more than a story. It is a series of life lessons that can only be expressed in this way by one who’s learned them himself.

About the Author

Joseph A. Garofalo is a graduate of North Park College and DePaul University School of Law and a member of the American, Illinois State, and Chicago Bar Associations. He was admitted to practice law before the US District Court, Northern District of Illinois, including the Federal Trial Bar, and the US Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit. After working as an associate for seven years, he left to cofound his own firm, which is now called Garofalo, Schreiber & Storm, Chartered.

Garofalo's career focus is workers' compensation and employers' liability, and he has extensive litigation experience before the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission, the Circuit Court, the Appellate Court, and the Illinois Supreme Court. Additionally, he's lectured on the topic before the Chicago Bar Association and a variety of business groups and insurance professionals.

Garofalo and his wife reside primarily in Park Ridge, Illinois, and part-time at Garofalo Family Vineyards in Healdsburg, California.
