Theresa Quigley was at Payne, Wood & Littlejohn from the early 1990’s and became a partner at Farrell Fritz in 1998 by virtue of the merger of PWL into Farrell Fritz. I worked in real estate and was with the firm until 2014.
What are your “vital stats”?
My life is a balance of family and profession. My husband and I are married thirty years. We have raised five children who continue to be involved in our lives even while they build their own successful and productive lives, albeit scattered across the country.
What does your job as Executive Managing Director/General Counsel of Saunders entail?
Using every piece of knowledge gained in my life as a lawyer, a town board member, a member of the community, a business person, and helping the 180 agents here at Saunders successfully market properties here on the East End of Long Island.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
My husband’s home made pizza with pepperoni and fresh mozzarella cheese. It is delicious and has my two favorite foods … bread and cheese.
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to? Why?
I would not really go back in time; I am happy where I am. Even though there were some traumas that would have been best not to have happened, on balance, I have the gift of a great childhood, loving parents, a fulfilling career, a good marriage and children who are strong, content, and smart, and whom I love completely.
Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?
Morning coffee with my husband; the day is before us and we have no clutter preventing us from having a conversation.
What is the best gift you have been given?
My children: Sally Ann, Helen, Joseph, Rodger, and Doris Cornelia.
