Dinner to celebrate attorney's 60-year career

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The James C. Kimbrough Bar Association will host a retirement dinner to celebrate the 60-year career of Hilbert L. Bradley, a Gary attorney.

Bradley, the first African-American graduate of Valparaiso University School of Law in 1950, was the first African-American corporation counsel for Gary under then-Mayor Richard Gordon Hatcher. Bradley founded the Fair Share Organization in the 1960s to advocate for equal employment opportunities for African-Americans in Gary. He also founded the Indiana Coalition for Black Judicial Officers in the 1980s because of the lack of African-Americans on the bench in Indiana.

The dinner is at 6 p.m. Dec 3. at Avalon Manor in Merrillville. Tickets are $50 a person and attendees must RSVP to (219) 884-0696 by Nov. 25. Tickets may be purchased at McCain Law Offices, 5655 Broadway in Merrillville.

For more information, contact Trent A. McCain, president of the Kimbrough Bar Association, at (219) 884-0696 or TAMcCain@KimbroughBar.org.

  1. Contact Lea Shelemey attorney in porter county Indiana. She just helped us win our case...she is awesome...

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks

  5. Here's a recent resource regarding steps that should be taken for removal from the IN sex offender registry. I haven't found anything as comprehensive as of yet. Hopefully this is helpful - http://www.chjrlaw.com/removal-indiana-sex-offender-registry/
