Milwaukee lawyer Franklin Gimbel It has been practicing law since the 1960s and has been at the center of several important cases for many years.This week’s Gimbel chats with Libby Collins WTMJ conversation..
Some of their chat was transcribed by eCourt Reporters, Inc..
LIBBY COLLINS: Frank, let’s start from the beginning. How did you grow up as a Jewish child, Milwaukee?
Franklin Gimbel: Now let’s talk to Libby. I grew up in the western part of Milwaukee during the first 11 years of my life. And my people lived in low apartments on 40th Street and Auer Street. They paid a monthly rent of $ 40, which was my mother, my father, and I had a brother named Stanley. Then, until I was in sixth grade, I went to a place called Townsend Street School in Sherman Boulevard. It was during World War II. And being a Jewish child in that particular neighborhood was not necessarily wine and roses. We often face about our religion and we fisted on the streets. So there was some troublesome time during that period to answer your question.
LIBBY COLLINS: How did it affect you?
Frank Lindimbel: You realize that you have to be tolerant of each other, regardless of the difference. So this guy uses the differences that we all happen to be the same, whether you are black, white, brown, Asian, one religion or another. I think I’ve come to believe that it shouldn’t be the people we interact with as the basis of conflict. And I think I’m still thinking about what I’m doing and thinking, how to put the law into practice, and how to serve the community.
LIBBY COLLINS: Looking back on those days, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Franklin Gimbel: Well, early on I respected the law. And I respected the law because I think I had a kind of natural ability to communicate verbally with people. My mother and father didn’t go on to college, but my father had two brothers who were lawyers. My mother had a brother who was a CPA and a brother who had a PhD in engineering and retired as a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.And I’m a well-educated role model that has grown up in a family of people who have been able to succeed in a variety of ways, including 40 days and better abilities than the $ 40 / month flat in Auer.
