Tressler Family Timeline

1909 November 23


Attorney Todd A. Tressler, II, comes from a long line of professionals in the real estate industry. His maternal family has a lengthy generational knowledge of this often complicated business, which can be traced back to 1909. In fact, Tressler & Associates was founded on the 100th anniversary of his family’s real estate company. With a family history of 113 years in the real estate industry, it’s hard to find anyone else with a comparable background. Tressler & Associates has a deep understanding of real estate law and can help you through various challenges.

Attorney Todd A. Tressler, II set up the main business phone number for the firm on Thanksgiving. Todd shared with his mother that he needed a business phone number and she had saved Todd's grandfather's phone number after he passed in 2005.



The Great Recession that occurred during the 2000s was the greatest economic decision since the Great Depression. Tressler & Associates first opened its doors in 2009 during the midst of this global financial crisis, which was an extreme challenge as a real estate-backed law firm. While the Great Recession caused many difficulties for many, especially those needing to buy or sell real estate, we persevered through these obstacles and are still providing legal services to our community over a decade later.

Over the first six years, Tressler & Associates grew too large to handle. There were mistakes that needed to be righted, and where others might have buckled, Tressler & Associates “Righted the Ship” to where the firm is supposed to be. Now, there should be no fear of ever letting down a client from overextending ourselves. Tressler & Associates knows what the firm’s mission is, and now the firm is healthier than its ever been.

Tressler & Associates stands out as a “Purpose Driven” business. This means the firm’s fiduciary duty is not to make a profit, but to complete a goal within the industry of law. In one of the least respected industries in the country, the firm aims to be something that people look to and know they can trust. Being attorneys who people can trust and believe in may sound like an old-school approach, but it's for the betterment of the community. That’s a mission the firm has maintained for this long, and won’t let up on.
