Tiede Metz & Downs, a downtown law firm with a long history in Wabash, recently announced that attorneys Jordan Tandy and Josh Petruniw have been made partners in the firm.
Managing partner, Steve Downs, made the announcement. “These are two very engaging, articulate, and intelligent young men, and our firm and community are very fortunate to have them here. They will both fit into our community very well and will be extremely successful in the practice of law.”
Mr. Tandy joined the firm in 2010. He earned his undergraduate degree from Ball State University, his M.B.A. from Valparaiso University, and his J.D. from the Robert H. McKinney School of Law at Indiana University. He currently serves on the boards of directors for the Wabash County YMCA, Wabash Kiwanis Club, the Wabash County Hospital Foundation, 85 Hope and the Wabash Marketplace Public Arts Committee. He and his wife Ashley reside in Wabash and are members of Zion Lutheran Church.
Mr. Petruniw joined the firm in 2011. He earned his undergraduate degree from Wabash College and earned a dual M.B.A. and J.D. from the Kelley School of Business and the Robert H. McKinney School of Law at Indiana University. He serves on the board of directors for the Community Foundation of Wabash County and Wabash Marketplace, and he is also a member of the Wabash Rotary club. His wife, Kristen, is a guidance counselor at McCulloch Junior High in Marion. They reside in Wabash.
“I have enjoyed becoming part of the Wabash community,” Tandy said. “I am honored to be a part of this firm which has provided quality legal representation to this community for many years.”
Petruniw continued, “I look forward to many more years of service to the people of Wabash and surrounding areas with Tiede Metz and Downs. Jordan and I have been great friends for a long time and this is a wonderful opportunity for both of us.”
Tiede Metz & Downs is engaged in the general practice of law. The firm organized in 1986 when original partners Charles Tiede, Don Metz, and Downs purchased the Ko-We-Ba office building at 99 W. Canal Street in Wabash. Mr. Metz passed away in March 2006, and Mr. Tiede retired in December 2012.
Albert J. Schlitt, who was admitted to the Indiana bar in 1966, operates the firm’s North Manchester office.
