TRANSACTIONAL AND GENERAL PRACTICE LAWYERS

 
 

Timothy W. Sargent, Esq.

Timothy hails from Morrisville, Vermont where he was born and raised.  He attended Peoples Academy and then ventured off to Bates College in Lewiston, Maine for his undergraduate degree.  His love of Vermont and environmental/land use issues is why he ultimately returned to Vermont and attended Vermont Law School (graduated in 2003).  Since November 2004, Timothy has practiced with his father (Richard Sargent) at Sargent Law Office.  Areas of law Timothy focuses on include transactional issues, commercial law, environmental law & consultation, contract law, probate matters, land use, municipal law, general litigation, and business development.  When not practicing law, Timothy can be found either on the golf course, hiking a nearby peak or on the ski slopes.  Timothy is also an active member in the community and is part of the Morrisville Rotary Club, a Morrisville Water & Light trustee, a board member of the Ron Terrill Scholarship Fund and an avid fan of Peoples Academy athletics.  He has also taught business law at Johnson State College, is a member of the Vermont and Lamoille County Bar Associations, and a member of the Sterling Chapter of the Green Mountain Club.  By retaining Timothy’s services you will hire someone who will not only work diligently on your behalf but who also retains an expansive knowledge of the law/environmental issues.  Moreover, he has a deep understanding of the people and landscape that define the fabric of our wonderful community.
