Joe Bryant '64 and Kim Pearman '64
Kim Pearman ’64 (right) and Joe Bryant ’64 are both still working and practicing law 57 years later!
Kim and Joe met in law school in 1961. Joe was a track champion from Iowa and Kim was a three time All-American diver from USC. They got acquainted because of athletics and later joined together to produce a research legal paper even though Joe was in Section A and Kim was in Section B.
After law school, they went their separate ways. Joe joined the army and went to Vietnam, while Kim stayed in Los Angeles and went to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office followed by the District Attorney’s office.
Eventually, they both opened their own practices. Joe does Wills and Trusts in Culver City and Kim does Personal Injury and Criminal cases in Van Nuys.
The one thing these two alumnus agree upon is UCLA Law is “the best law school in the world!” They never miss an opportunity to support UCLA Law, to attend events and celebrations, and to make donations. They love their beloved alma mater and it shows!
