Law, Order, and Patriotism Famous American Lawyers Born on the Fourth of July
PETER ANGELOS Maryland personal injury attorney Peter Angelos has been practicing law for more than 50 years. Angelos studied at Eastern College of Commerce and Law and the University of Baltimore School of Law, and was valedictorian of his class at the latter. He’s perhaps most famous for representing the State of Maryland in a lawsuit against the tobacco industry, which lead to the recovery of $4.5 billion. He was also one of the first to take a case challenging the use of lead paint in residential housing. KATHLEEN KENNEDY TOWNSEND Yes, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend is one of those Kennedys. In fact, she is the oldest child of Robert F. Kennedy, brother to former President John F. Kennedy. Townsend studied at the University of New Mexico School of Law before going on to work as an attorney in Connecticut. She later served as the lieutenant governor of Maryland and as the chair of the Democratic super PAC American Bridge 21st Century.

July may just be the most patriotic month, and there are few professions more in line with patriotism than practicing law. Laws embody the ideals our country was founded on, and by challenging and upholding them, lawyers help keep them up to date. To celebrate that mission this month, we’ve put together a short list of some of the most famous lawyers born on the Fourth of July.
CALVIN COOLIDGE Apart from being the 30th president of the United States, Calvin Coolidge was also a top-notch country lawyer. Instead of attending law school, Coolidge apprenticed with the Massachusetts law firm Hammond and Field before going on to open his own law office practicing commercial law in 1898. Presidents John Quincy Adams and Gerald Ford were also former lawyers born in July, though they weren’t lucky enough to claim the fourth as a birthday.
