BRATTLEBORO — Timothy J. O’Connor Jr.’s illustrious career spanned decades and touched the lives of Vermonters state-wide. He was a former Speaker of the House and a long time state representative. Known by many as “Mr. Brattleboro,” he not only acted as the moderator of the town’s representative town meeting for 22 years, his busy law practice served countless local residents through the years particularly in their real estate and estate planning needs.

His former office at 136 Western Avenue, the historic Henry W. Simonds building, is continuing O’Connor’s legacy and tradition under a new name. The Timothy O’Connor Memorial Branch of Costello, Valente &Gentry will continue to serve the legal needs and opportunities of Vermonters.

A socially distanced open house is planned at 136 Western Avenue today from 4 to 6 p.m. Food, beverages, tours, and remembrances of Tim will occur. Everyone is welcome.
