Prior to opening her own law office in 2008, Rebecca Sargent had been Senior Vice President & Senior Trust Officer at Union Trust Company since 1994. Before that, she practiced law at Loughlin & Wade in Portsmouth, NH, where she concentrated her practice in estate planning, probate, and real estate. She merged her private practice with the practices of Jeffrey Jones and Roberta Kuriloff in 2013, thus forming Jones, Kuriloff & Sargent, LLC.
Rebecca holds a B.S. degree in Business Administration from The Pennsylvania State University and a J.D. degree from the University of Maine School of Law. She is admitted to the bar in Maine and New Hampshire. She is a member of the Maine, New Hampshire, and American Bar Associations as well as the Hancock County Bar Association. Rebecca graduated with honors from the National Graduate Trust School at Northwestern University and ABA Stonier Graduate School of Executive Bank Management at Georgetown University. She served as a member of the Advisory Board for the Certified Trust and Financial Advisor Program, the Certified Council of the Institute of Certified Bankers, through 2016.
Rebecca believes in giving back to her community, so she regularly volunteers her time for local organizations. Current commitments include roles as: Honorary Trustee of the Maine Coast Memorial Hospital; Governance Committee for the James Russell Wiggins Down East Family YMCA; Board and Executive Committee of the Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce.
In addition, Rebecca has been an instructor in various estate planning investment topics for the American Bankers Association and at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, New Hampshire College, Acadia Senior College, Belfast Senior College, and Ellsworth and RSU 24 Adult Education.
An Ellsworth native, Rebecca's passions include gardening and golfing. She might argue that between work and weather, there's never quite enough time for either.
