Local InterestBY TRACIE TOMAKThe Law Of- fice of Tomak and Podolsky, PLLC, prides itself on be- ing “A different kind of law firm.” We are frequently asked by potential clients what wemean by different. The clients that hire us tell us that we are in fact different.How We Began:The law office literally began in a small basement office of Tracie Tomak’s mother’s home. Tracie passed the Mich- igan Bar Exam and ordered some busi- ness cards. Within two months, she could not keep up with the number of clients being served from a residential location. She next rented space from an attorney in Marshall, and within four months, she could no longer accommo- date her number of clients. Tracie rent- ed space from a Battle Creek attorney and was barely keeping up when she met new attorney, Kellie Podolsky. The two attorneys rented a large six-office suite and later merged to form Tomak and Podolsky, PLLC. They purchased their current office at 601 South Shore Drive in 2014, the same year Attorney Kimberly Wickham joined the firm.
