Who is Lucille Barrett?
Lucille Barrett is the late grandmother of our founder, Faith Hill (née Barrett). Lucille was a pillar in her community, church, and family. She was a wife and mother to ten children and many grand and great-grandchildren. She was a woman of great faith and encouragement and continuously encouraged our founder throughout life and law school. While attending law school in Chicago, Illinois, our founder often found herself visiting with her grandmother Lucille. They would spend countless hours conversing about various topics. Lucille also assisted Faith with any and everything she needed for law school and always had a hot meal ready for Faith and anyone else who visited. At 90 years old, Lucille would not and did not let anything stop her from attending her granddaughter Faith’s law school graduation. She attended beaming with pride and more encouraging words for the future. She holds a special place in the heart of our founder. The name “Barrett Partners Group” has been kept and maintained by our founder, despite her name change, to continuously honor her grandmother, a woman who continuously inspires Faith to keep pressing forward, providing service to others, and maintain a caring, compassionate, and empathetic heart to all. All of these traits were Lucille and Faith aspires to salvage the bad reputation that lawyers have by exhibiting such traits. Finally, Lucille always had words of wisdom, and one particular quote that Faith will always remember and encourages her clients to note…
