Former American football wide receiver, Plaxico Burress’s wife is Tiffany Burress. Plaxico was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers eighth overall in the 2000 NFL Draft. He has also played for the New York Giants and the New York Jets. He caught the game-winning catch of Super Bowl XLII as the Giants beat the New England Patriots. Plaxico played college football at Michigan State.
The couple first met in Pittsburgh. At that time, Plaxico was playing with the Steelers, and Tiffany had just finished her first semester at Duquesne Law School. These two lovers got married in the year 2005. They are blessed with two children, a ѕоn Elijah born in 2006, аnd a daughter Giovanna Burress born in November 2008. Unfortunately when Giovanna was born, Plaxico was in the jail for the infamous self-inflicted gun shot incident which we’ll talk about later.

Currently, she is working as аn attorney аt Dario Yacker Suarez & Albert in Nеw Jersey. Shе iѕ specifically a Nеw Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer.
Tiffany is a kind of woman who knows how to balance work and personal life. She is a kind and emphatic lady as ѕhе handles bоth legal аnd emotional issues of families that come to her. Shе deals with cases rеgаrding financial hardship, injury, divorce, оr separation. Tiffany iѕ a member оf Passaic County Bar Association, Bergen County Bar Association, Essex County Bar Association, Union County Bar Association, Nеw Jersey Women Lawyers Association, аnd National Association оf Professional Women.
Apart from being a lawyer, Tiffany is also a businesswoman. She launched her own clothing line, meant for pregnant women. It’s called Joiful Maternity. Mrs. Burress says that she couldn’t find any clothes that worked for what she herself wanted them for – a woman who’s on the go, still works, goes to dinner, has events. This idea came to her mind when she was pregnant with her first child, Elijah Alexander. She then created a collection of maternity clothes that could go from casual to corporate affairs while remaining stylish, comfortable and affordable. Tifanny has never though had any formal training in designing clothes. She just sketched her ideas and the designer Mychael Knight fine tunes those sketches for her.
Plaxico is also a fan of her wife’s designs. He says that her designs are exceptional. According to him, they are what the modern-day mother would want to wear. Plaxico himself is surprised at this hidden talent of his lady. Her designs are available at joifulmaternity.com. We are not endorsing them, just spreading the word, trust us!
Also, being from law background Tiffany says that working on this business has been easy for her. She says that there a lot of things in the business apart from being a designer like dealing with contracts and legal issues. Mrs. Burress says, “I still like having my legal background. It’s benefited me in every possible way.”
Tiffany and Plaxico’s marriage haven’t always been easy. Once Plaxico was carrying a gun at a club in Manhattan. He was carrying the gun in his jeans pocket which accidentally got triggered and he shot himself in the thigh. The injury wasn’t serious but he had to serve a 20-month sentence in an upstate New York prison on a weapons charge. Plaxico was in jail when his second child, his daughter Giovanna, was born. He didn’t find out about her birth until she was 5 days old. How unfortunate is that for a father!
With their two young children, the couple currently lives in the New Jersey suburb of Totowa.
