LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Two local "legal celebrities" were honored by the Tippecanoe County Bar Association.
It was a night to "Hail to Our Chiefs." A reception was held for Indiana Appeals Court Chief Justice Margret Robb and Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Brent Dickson.
Both are Purdue grads who, before being appointed to the bench, were long-time practicing attorneys in Tippecanoe County.
"It is wonderful warm fuzzies just driving into Lafayette. It's a delight. These were great friends when I practiced law here for 17 years and we've maintained relationships since that time," said Dickson.
"It's special. I practiced here in Tippecanoe County, I still live here in Tippecanoe County, I try to continue to participate in the Tippecanoe County Bar Association," said Robb.
Dickson and Robb both said it's a great feeling to have so much support from the people who helped them get to where they are today.
