Noah found his readiness for law after earning degrees in religion. What might seem like an unlikely path was actually an ideal preparation for his future in law. He spent his undergraduate years intensely studying texts, listening carefully, and contemplating tough questions – skills that make a thorough and prepared attorney. Paired with his passion for helping people and for doing what’s right, his educational course shifted.
After completing his law degree in Iowa, Noah returned home to the Peoria area where he interned with a local judge. It was through that experience that he met the team at Quinn Johnston. He valued the breadth of experience and success in the firm, but it was the down-to-earth people that made him feel like it was a place he would fit as an attorney.
Noah joined Quinn Johnston as a summer associate in 2021 and became a full-time associate in 2022. He focuses his practice on civil litigation with an interest in family and criminal law, but his priority is clear. “I am a thorough, hard worker. If there is any way I can help a colleague or client succeed, I will find it.”
Noah lives in Peoria with his wife. True to character, he serves on the Peoria Bar Association Pro Bono Committee and provides services through the Prairie State Legal Services Peoria chapter.
