Karl was born and raised in Middlebury, Vermont and began his legal career in 1966 as an associate at the Middlebury firm of Underwood, Lynch & Ketcham.

For nearly fifty years, Karl practiced in the areas of real estate, estate planning, municipal, land use, personal injury, probate, and business law.

In addition to practicing law, Karl was actively involved in the community and civic service. Karl served in the Vermont Army National Guard from 1966-2001 and retired with the rank of Colonel. He was on the Board of Directors of the Addison County Chamber of Commerce between 1967-1973, served as President of the Middlebury Rotary Club (Rotary member from 1968-present), was an incorporator and organizer of the United Way of Addison County, Inc. and the Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Association, Inc., and served as a Selectman on the Town of Middlebury Select Board for nine years (Chairman for two years).

Anthony R. Duprey, Esq

Anthony grew up in Ferrisburgh, VT and graduated from the Vergennes Union High School Class of 1989.  With great anticipation, he returned to Vermont’s beautiful Champlain Valley after college and law school in the Midwest. After his return to Vermont, he settled back in the Vergennes area.  Upon graduating law school in May and being admitted to the Vermont Bar in October, 1996, he “hung his shingle out” opening his own law office in Vergennes, VT.  The support of friends, family and neighbors in the community quickly led to busy law practice.  In October of 2004, Anthony joined the firm and is now a managing shareholder at Neuse, Duprey & Putnam.

Anthony lives with his wife and five children in Waltham, VT.  He is an active member of the community; serving on the Bixby Memorial Library Board of Trustees and the Town of Waltham Planning Commission.  When not at the office, he enjoys coaching Little League and being involved in the many activities of his church, Victory Baptist Church.

Benjamin W. Putnam, Esq.

Benj joined the firm in 2005 and has built an extensive practice representing landowners, municipalities, business owners, and individuals in the greater Addison County community.  He enjoys the diversity of a rural law practice, which offers the opportunity to solve a wide variety of legal challenges both large and small.  Benj has successfully closed countless residential, commercial, and agricultural real estate transactions; he has represented clients at all levels of the Vermont court system; and he works hard to provide thoughtful representation to individuals in need of wills and estate planning, trust and estate administration, and land use and real estate advice.

After attending local Addison County schools, Benj attended college and law school in California and Texas, participated in a international moot arbitration competition in Vienna, Austria, and completed an internship at the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in Arusha, Tanzania.  Following these far-flung adventures, Benj came back to his senses and returned to Vermont, where he served as law clerk to the Hon. William K. Sessions, III, Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Vermont.  After his clerkship, Benj was excited to have the opportunity to devote his skills and energy to serving clients here in the greater Addison County community.

Benj lives with his family in New Haven, Vermont, where he serves on the Town Planning Commission, participates in other local boards and activities, and enjoys getting outdoors and enjoying all that Vermont has to offer.
