Justice named Logansport Citizen of the Week
A long-time Logansport attorney who returned to the community to practice law after graduating from Harvard University Law School is recognized with a special city honor.
Robert L. Justice formally closed his law office in downtown Logansport last month. He followed in his father’s footsteps. The late Robert S. Justice also practiced law for decades in the Pollard-Nelson Home, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Robert L. Justice practiced locally for several years before he was appointed judge to succeed the late Norman Kiesling on the Cass Circuit Court bench. He later was appointed magistrate of Cass Superior Court II when it was created.
“The justice family may have had more members admitted to the bar than any other in the history of our community,” Mayor Dave Kitchell said today. “The Justices were blessed with a passion for practicing law, but were very much centered in their family’s heritage west of the city on the banks of the Wabash.”
Justice is a Logansport High School graduate.
The Citizen of the Week is sponsored by the Mayor’s Office and recognizes Logansport natives or residents who contribute to the community or are recognized for their achievements. Recipients received a certificate of appreciation from the city and a $20 gift certificate.
