PRLog - June 12, 2012 - WATERBURY, Conn. -- In December 2011, civil litigation attorney Tavis O. Tindall purchased and began to renovate a 1908 Victorian-style clubhouse at 64 Holmes Avenue for his law firm. By January 3, 2012, the firm was fully moved in and operational. “For the past 15 years, I have been practicing law, and I have been fortunate to represent many great clients across the state through my Waterbury office plus a satellite office in Hartford. Since first establishing my law practice in 1997, I had always hoped to purchase my own building to allow for future expansion. This beautiful, historic building meets that goal.”

Specializing in civil litigation, the Tindall Law Firm, LLC represents clients in the areas of personal injury and workmen’s compensation cases. The firm also helps clients in the areas of real estate transactions, family law, wills and trusts, and criminal law. Tavis Tindall, and his bi-lingual Spanish-speaking paralegal staff of three, includes paralegal and office manager for ten years, Ms. Omayra Pizarro; paralegal Maria Morales-Grant who has been with the firm since December 2008; and Ms. Tawnisha Nieves, paralegal with the firm since August of 2011. Kelly Tindall, Attorney Tindall’s wife, also assists the firm with office-related work and was instrumental in creating the historically-
In one month’s time, under Kelly Tindall’s skillful renovating and decorating insightfulness, the firm’s staff moved into the 3,413 square foot former clubhouse turned commercial property after significant renovations. Previously utilized as the offices for the Waterbury chapter of the American Red Cross, Kelly Tindall explained that, “Our objective for the past six months has been to renovate the building back to much of its original beauty when it was built in 1908. We wanted especially to showcase the beautiful grand entry hall and spacious conference room that overlooks the expansive wrap-around front porch.”
Tavis Tindall gave much credit to the exceptional talents of his wife, Kelly, and the lightning speed renovation expertise of Tom Pellicano, owner of Grandview Homes in Southbury, and his staff. Attorney Tindall stated, “The combination of Kelly’s instinctive decorating sense and Grandview Home’s extensive building and renovation experience, enabled us to renovate this building and occupy it within one month of purchase.
Grandview Homes worked immediately after we closed on December 3 until we moved in on December 27. They began by putting a new roof on the 104-year-old building. They then replaced the front porch pillars and the wrap-around front porch. Nick Dauti of N&D Masonry then expertly restored the front walkway and steps in elegant fashion.
While Grandview Homes renovated the exterior, they were also restoring the building’s grand entrance foyer, and the first two floor’s walls and ceilings. Once completed, they painted all nine rooms and offices, the kitchen, bathrooms and hallways.
In March, they installed new vinyl siding after we had occupied the building for three months. This was an extreme makeover in just a few months’ time, and the results are stunning. Grandview Homes’ timely quality work allowed us to be fully operational by January 3, 2012. After that, they respectfully worked around our thriving practice to complete all of the renovations.”
Tindall also had high praise for Thomaston Savings Bank. “They were instrumental in facilitating the purchase of this property during these current times of low property values. We had been searching for financing to help cover the purchase cost plus our immediate need to restore and occupy the building within a very short time of initiating those renovations. The financing that Thomaston Savings Bank’s staff developed for this unique situation was invaluable to making this purchase possible. We can’t thank enough Patricia Clemente, Anthony Gugliotti and Rosemary Briglia from the Thomaston Savings Bank branch in Waterbury for helping us to secure the needed financing in such a timely fashion.”
Real estate broker Colleen Platt of the Washington Agency in Torrington was responsible for negotiating the sale, and Tindall also gave her high accolades for her skill and attentivefollow through in securing the purchase. He also spoke appreciatively of the professional landscaping services provided by Stephen M. Somosky, Jr., president and owner of Landscape Solutions of Connecticut, LLC of Glastonbury, Connecticut, who helped transform the outside entrance to the building.
Attorney Tindall also praised family members who have played an instrumental role in helping with the move and with many tasks that were an essential part of the move and renovation, most notably the hard work of his father-in-law Robert Hughson.
Tavis Tindall was very complimentary of his skillful and hard-working staff for the vital role they have played in the success of the firm. He spoke gratefully of the firm’s loyal client base. “Our objective in serving every client is to provide high quality service and zealously advocate for their interests, while upholding the highest level of ethical standards. We provide a warm, friendly atmosphere within our firm and we sincerely care very much about our clients. Every client is treated like a member of a family, with respect and appreciation.It is with sincere appreciation that I thank all of our clients through the years for helping with the success of our firm and making this building purchase possible.”
