Tim Hagerty

Tim Hagerty is a native of Louisville and a longtime member of the Cathedral of the Assumption. His greatest joys in this world are his wife, Tara, a Jefferson County Family Court judge, and his son, Jack, who recently received his MBA from the UofL College of Business. Tim is blessed with a loving, generous family, including his parents, Pat and Joe Hagerty, who have worked in the Sandefur Dining Hall for many years; his sister, Peggy, a Let’s Dance alumna and longtime Sandefur Dining Hall volunteer; his brother Mike, who serves on the Let’s Dance organizing committee; his sister, Kate (in Florida); and several loving sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews.

Tim has been blessed through his affiliation with the Cathedral to have had many opportunities to experience the joys of working with like-minded folks whose mission is to share God’s love with others in our community. At the initial suggestion of Father Bill Fichteman, Tim has been deeply involved for over 15 years with the mission of Nativity Academy, an independent Catholic middle school serving students of academic promise from families who demonstrate financial need. Tim’s service to Nativity has included serving for a total of 11 years on its Board of Directors, including serving as Board Chair from 2017 to 2020. Tim also had the opportunity for several years to represent the Cathedral on the Board of Central Louisville Community Ministries, including several years as its President. At the Cathedral, Tim has sung in the Cathedral Choir, served as a Sunday lector, taught religious education to high school students, been a member of the Social Concerns Committee and served on the steering committee for the 2008 Capital Campaign.

Tim is also active in the community beyond Catholic causes. He currently serves as Chair of the Public Policy Council for Greater Louisville, Inc., the Metro Chamber of Commerce, and previously served as Chair of its Environment and Energy Committee. Tim is a former Board member of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and has chaired its Energy and Environmental Council. Tim participated in the Leadership Louisville Bingham Fellows program in 2011 (Improving Louisville’s Infrastructure) and in 2019 (Improving Louisville’s K-12 Educational Attainment). He is also a 2004 graduate of Leadership Kentucky and a 2008 graduate of Leadership Louisville. From 2007 to 2010, Tim served as Secretary and General Counsel of the Bridges Coalition, which advocated successfully for the completion of the Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project. Tim was also the founding President of the 21st Century Society of the Louisville Orchestra (2002-2004). And in addition to singing with the Cathedral Choir, Tim sang for several years with the Louisville Master Chorale – and sang with the Yale Russian Chorus during law school.

In his day job, Tim is an environmental lawyer with Frost Brown Todd, a leading law firm with offices in 15 markets across nine states and Washington, D.C. Tim has practiced with Frost Brown Todd in Louisville for 24 years, following four years of practice at another firm in Washington, D.C. Tim recently served as the President of the Energy and Mineral Law Foundation, the leading professional association for energy lawyers in the eastern U.S. He speaks regularly at conferences around the country on environmental and energy law topics. Tim is proud to work with numerous companies across Kentucky and the U.S. who employee thousands of people and provide essential goods and services to our economy. And he is thrilled to be a partner at a law firm that both supports and encourages active, meaningful involvement in the Louisville community.
