Tim and wife, Alison, have lived on West Ave for 17 years, along with two sons, with whom they have spent countless hours at Lombardy Park and walking through the Fan. Tim has served as General Counsel to the Henrico Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program, was the Secretary, Vice Mayor and Mayor of the West Avenue Improvement Association, and is the President of the Fishing Bay Trace Home Owners’ Association. As an attorney with the law firm of Cook, Heyward, Lee, Hopper & Feehan, he represents individuals and professionals with business, employment, and commercial real estate matters. By some standards his tenure as a Fan resident is short; by others he’s an old hand. But what he hopes he shares with all who choose to make the Fan their home is a reverence for the rich traditions and architecture of the area, the gratefulness of being able to live within such a diverse neighborhood, and the opportunities that the future holds for the Fan.
