Antelope Valley Estate Planning law firm partner Kevin Von Tungeln of Thompson Von Tungeln was recently named as one of nine finalists in the 2009 Antelope Valley Business Person of the Year.
To be selected, each of the finalists had to demonstrate exceptional business skills and an outstanding commitment to the Lancaster community.
“I am grateful to be accorded such an honor,” said Von Tungeln. “There are so many Antelope Valley business people who are not only very good at what they do but who are also extremely involved in this community. To stand among them is, indeed, humbling.”
While earning a degree in electrical engineering, Von Tungeln found out that he was more a “people” person than a “thing” person. So Von Tungeln entered law school, graduating from the University of New Mexico Law School in 1990 and beginning his practice in the Antelope Valley with the firm of Cosgrove, Mchelizzi and Schwabacher, Ward and Bianchi. Soon afterward, he became a solo practitioner and then a partner with Mark E. Thompson.
“Kevin understands that our firm exists to serve people,” said law firm partner Thompson. “He's continually working to provide excellent customer service, always improving the clients' experience.”
In addition to Von Tungeln the group of nine included a retailer, owner of a motorcycle dealership, fast food franchisees, a rancher, owner of an automobile dealership, a dentist, and another attorney. Franchise owners of several McDonald's®, the husband and wife team of Fran and Hernando Marroquin, were named the 2009 Business People of the Year.
Since 2007, this award has been annually presented by the Antelope Valley Press, Antelope Valley Board of Trade, and the Greater Antelope Valley Economic Alliance.
