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. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  2. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.

  3. This article is excellent and should be required reading for all attorneys and would-be attorneys, regardless of age or experience. I've caught myself committing several of the errors mentioned.

  4. Bill Satterlee is, indeed, a true jazz aficionado. Part of my legal career was spent as an associate attorney with Hoeppner, Wagner & Evans in Valparaiso. Bill was instrumental (no pun intended) in introducing me to jazz music, thereby fostering my love for this genre. We would, occasionally, travel to Chicago on weekends and sit in on some outstanding jazz sessions at Andy's on Hubbard Street. Had it not been for Bill's love of jazz music, I never would have had the good fortune of hearing it played live at Andy's. And, most likely, I might never have begun listening to it as much as I do. Thanks, Bill.

  5. The child support award is many times what the custodial parent earns, and exceeds the actual costs of providing for the children's needs. My fiance and I have agreed that if we divorce, that the children will be provided for using a shared checking account like this one(http://www.mediate.com/articles/if_they_can_do_parenting_plans.cfm) to avoid the hidden alimony in Indiana's child support guidelines.
