Tati is the oldest daughter of Roger Johnson and Piper Scholfield. She
has two younger sisters, Tosca and Thisbe, both of whom are beautiful,
brilliant people, and a 4-year old basset hound named Odin.
Growing up, Tati’s parents owned a farm outside of town, so the Johnson,
Vorhees & Martucci office became her second home. She has known partners
Scott Vorhees and Patrick Martucci since she was tiny and many of the
other attorneys and staff members have been a continual presence in her
life. Her uncle also works as the office manager of the Joplin office.
She got ready for prom in the Joplin building and did her homework at
the conference room tables.
“No one walks into our office on the best day of their lives. They
come in when tragedy has turned their world upside down. It takes incredible
bravery, strength and trust to ask for help. We won’t ever take
that for granted or take it lightly. We will take your phone calls, respond
to your questions with honesty, compassion and respect. We will aggressively
pursue the course of action that is best for you. We know where the courthouse
is and we aren’t afraid of it.”
Tati grew up watching her father tirelessly fight to help clients take
back control of their lives. She watched the passion with which he cared
for the people who came to him for help. So, when it came time to make
a career decision, law just made sense. “This place is my home;
these people are my family.”
The thing Tati most enjoys about practicing law is helping people who have
been injured due to someone else’s carelessness and poor choices,
get their lives back in order.
