L.P. Spinks, Jr. (1921-1971), practiced law in DeKalb from April 1946 until his death on April 7, 1971. This picture was taken of him at his desk in his law office in the old Commercial Bank building in 1966.
James D. "Jimmy" Spinks, son of L.P. Spinks Jr., has practiced law in DeKalb since February 1, 1972. Neither of the three generations of lawyers in the Spinks family practiced law with the others.
