The following is an announcement from Kimball & Kimball Law Firm:
On November 1, 2012, Attorney Jay Kimball will be moving his law practice from the second floor of The Centre at 590 Main Street in Lynnfield, to his home at 618 Main Street, two doors from the Centre, at the intersection of Main and Summer Streets, across from the Town Common and Meeting House.
Kimball is excited about the move but fondly recalls walking up to the second floor office as a child after school to visit his father, Attorney John Kimball, Sr.
“After my grandfather died, my father, with whom he practiced, moved his office from Melrose to Lynnfield in 1951, where he practiced from his home at 345 Chestnut Street for a couple of years before opening the office at The Centre in 1953."
After graduating Harvard College in 1966 and Boston University Law School in 1969, Kimball worked for the Federal Government for a year before joining his father in Lynnfield, when the law firm of Kimball & Kimball was born.
The family legal tradition started with Kimball's great grand uncle David P. Kimball, a Boston lawyer who practiced law in the 1800's, followed by Kimball's grandfather Henry Horton Kimball who practiced law in Boston and Melrose in the early 1900's, with whom John Kimball, Sr. worked prior to the move to Lynnfield.
The tradition and firm have continued with Kimball's sister Marilyn Kimball of Gloucester, and sons Jason and Matthew, all of whom are attorneys, as well as his daughter Laura, a para-legal. "We have a long proud history of practicing law in my family. and serving our clients”
