Personal snapshot

Greta grew up in a large family in South Bend, IN, and knew she wanted to stay in the area after law school to work with her father, Chuck Roemer, in his law practice. She and her husband, Jay (who is a partner at THK as well) delight in their three “adulting” children. Within the office, Greta is appreciated for her wonderful banana bread which she brings in frequently. In college, she played tennis for Notre Dame but now prefers yoga and biking. She spends her extra time these days trying out “whole food plant-based recipes” and feeding them to family and friends.
