Proudly Serving the Town of Vermilion and Surrounding Region for over 40 years

John H. Reynolds Q.C practised law in the town of Vermilion from his articling year until his retirement in December 2015. Beginning as Tibbitt & Reynolds, the office relocated to the Vermilion Professional Building after its construction in 1975 and continues to operate from that location.

Walter O. Flemke articled in Edmonton, Alberta and joined the firm in 1989. In 1992, he became a partner and the firm became known as Reynolds & Flemke. Our firm name changed again in 2015 to Vermilion River Law with the addition of Rebekah H. Warkentin as a partner. Walter retired in December 2020 after more than 30 years of practising law in Vermilion.
