TIMOTHÉE VALLÉE

PARTNER

Timothee Vallee - VSB Notaires

PRACTICE, INVOLVEMENT AND DISTINCTION

His academic and professional career has been sprinkled with distinctions: honour roll in law school for his high-quality academic record; a scholarship from the Chaire du Notoriat; the Spiegel Sohmer prize for excellence in tax and commercial law; a prize for excellence from the Chambre des notaires du Québec; a diploma from the 4th World Notariat University in Buenos Aires. He was listed in the roll of the Order of Notaries in 2016 and practices primarily in real estate, commercial and business law. He is increasingly becoming a part of the legal community around Mont-Tremblant, the city where he grew up.

BACK-AND-FORTH

Timothée, what do you do to destress and zone out?

There’s nothing better than watching a TV show—right now I’m watching The Walking Dead—while drinking a good beer (one… not five!).

Besides your profession, what are you passionate about?

The stock market. I like to keep track of the market’s movements and try to figure out how it works.

What’s on your bedside table right now?

A Short Course in Intellectual Self Defense, by Normand Baillargeon. It's my fourth time reading it. Even if I don’t agree with all of his positions, I like how he shows how we think. It’s a true beginner’s guide to critical thinking.

Do you want kids?

In an ideal world, I'd like to have four.

Timothée is a very intelligent guy with an analytical mind.

TIMOTHÉE VALLÉE

PARTNER

Once upon a time, there was a young, ambitious notary with a tumultuous past, who almost missed out on his destiny. As he studied for his bachelor’s degree in security and police studies, Timothée’s constitutional law professor mentioned that he was a natural in law, and that he should think about changing his major. Feeling insulted by this unwanted advice, he rejected the idea… until he changed his mind. Let’s go back in time a little…

PEACEFUL TEENAGE YEARS

Timothée’s secondary school was coloured by music and politics. While other boys his age played hockey and obsessed over girls, he was more interested in politics, mass movements and large world conflicts. He even read the Constitutional Act of 1982, without understanding it. But it was just a matter of time.

FROM HERO TO ZERO

It was in cégep that his situation turned for the worse. Although a good person at heart, he fell prey to the negative impact of some of his peers. He left school to play music. For four years, he tasted stardom and the worldly excesses that come with it.

Somewhere along the way, he began to grow tired of this life without defined goals. He knew that he had been off of the straight and narrow for a while. He therefore decided to leave his band and Montréal to return to his native hamlet and start over from scratch. And that’s just what he did! However, our hero hit a wall: no one would hire him. Thanks to a contact, someone gave him a chance. That’s when he became a cook at a restaurant in Mont-Tremblant, La Forge Bar & Grill: a first step in the right direction.

A fear keeps him on track

But Timothée aspired to more; he wanted to give back to society, so he went back to finish cégep. His fear: falling back under the influence of the wrong people. So he gave himself a demanding routine. He was so dedicated that he even went into school on days when there was no class, so he could finish his work and study.

Then, during his first year of his bachelor’s in security and police studies, he reconnected with criminal and constitutional law. His professor saw his talent and great potential. However, afraid of being influenced by others once again, his defence mechanism kicked in, and he categorically refused to change programs. But Timothée ended up facing the facts and he switched to law, and then to the notarial profession, where he excelled. He even received the dean’s scholarship of excellence from the University of Montréal.

When finishing his studies, he completed an internship in a firm before being hired. He quickly realized, however, that the management at this firm did not share his values and vision of the profession. His fear of being influenced pushed him to take his destiny into his own hands, which led him to found his own firm, VSB Title Attorneys, with two other colleagues.

THE PENDULUM SWINGS BACK

Today, he is proud to own a company that reflects his vision. What he loves most in his profession is to explain abstract concepts in as simple a way as possible to help people make the right choices with the necessary information.

Timothée understands the consequences of bad decisions. Helping others means, in some ways, making up for his youthful indiscretions.
