Lincoln's Law Partners

In his nearly 25 years as a lawyer in Springfield, Illinois, Abraham Lincoln had three partners. He joined John Todd Stuart (1837-1841) as a junior partner, then started a new practice as a junior partner with Stephen T. Logan (1841-1844).

After he and Logan dissolved their partnership, he took William H. Herndon (1844-1861) as his junior partner. With all three, Lincoln functioned as a general practitioner, taking a wide variety of civil and criminal cases.
