J.Robert Kinkle

Bob graduated in 1966 from Indiana University (Bloomington), College of Arts and Science, with an undergraduate degree in History and Economics and from the Indiana University School of Law (now Maurer School of Law) with a Doctor of Jurisprudence in 1969.

Bob began his legal career in the United States Marine Corps as a Jag Officer.  His service involved numerous trials as both a prosecutor and as defense counsel.  He was also appointed as a Special Trial Observed by the United States Ambassador to Japan to observe matters in Japanese courts involving U.S. Military Personnel. 

From May, 1973 to January, 1975, Bob served as the Police Legal Advisor to the Evansville Police Department, advising police officers on the street how to lawfully perform their duties. 

Bob began private practice in Evansville in 1975 and was a solo practitioner until 1978 when he and Gerald Evans formed the firm of Evans & Kinkle.  During this period of time, Bob was a part-time Deputy Prosecutor for the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office assigned to try numerous felony jury trials.

Since 1980, Bob has practiced with Vern Partenheimer under the firm name of Hall, Partenheimer & Kinkle in Princeton, Indiana.  While this has been a general county seat type of practice, Bob’s practice has involved a gradual transition away from criminal defense and personal injury to a concentration in the areas of real estate, including residential and commercial real estate transactions and coal, oil and gas leasing and purchases.  Other areas of practice now include municipal law, divorces, small business organization and estate planning and administration.  He has both defended and prosecuted several will contest cases.

Notable transactions have involved the development of a purchasing strategy, drafting documents for the purchase of the Gibson County Toyota, Indiana plant site.  Bob was also involved in the purchase of approximately 10,000 acres of the former Cypress Amax Mine in Warrick County, Indiana by Newmaster Development, LLC.  Notable municipal projects include representation to South Gibson School Corporation to construct both Haubstadt and Owensville Community Schools for approximately $22 Million, the recent remodeling of Gibson Southern High School for approximately $32 Million and the representation of East Gibson School Corporation in remodeling the Middle/High School Complex in Oakland City, Indiana.
