Timothy G. Sellers Sellers, Hinshaw, Ayers, Dortch & Lyons PA, Charlotte
I would be a contractor. During the summer after my first year in law school, I worked as a drywall mechanic at Duke University Medical Center. There was a tremendous feeling of satisfaction as each room was finished and each part fit.
Vita: Born Nov. 24, 1954, in Goldsboro; bachelor’s from Davidson College and law degree from UNC Chapel Hill; wife and two children. Why he chose this field: I was a civil litigator for 25 years. My real-estate practice developed from “opportunities” I had, to solve complex problems related to real-estate issues, often in court. Memorable case: A second-mortgage foreclosure on the Raleigh Inn. As a result, our client obtained title to a hotel. We worked to find a purchaser while holding the first-mortgage holder at bay. We closed the deal, and everyone was paid. Passions: I am executive director of Carolina Peacemaking, a nonprofit ministry that helps Christians and churches resolve conflicts. Favorite book: My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. It challenges me daily. Favorite place: Bethany by the Lake, the name my wife and I have given our home on the western shores of Lake Norman. Hero: My dad, Ed Sellers. Dad will be 84 this month and is the embodiment of strength, quiet resolve and loyalty. Don’t ask him to: Tell anyone something that is not true because it will be easier or will make the person feel good.
