Kevin Bart McCarthy, U.S. Trustee at the United States Department of Justice, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in transportation law.
Inspired by his father, who was a renowned lawyer and representative at the largest industrial corporation worldwide, Mr. McCarthy desired to enter the field of law. Earning a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Notre Dame in 1970 and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Indiana University in 1972, he was admitted to practice law in the States of Indiana and Illinois, as well as before the U.S. District Courts for the Southern District of Indiana and Central District of Illinois and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. At the inception of his career in 1972, he served as a bail commissioner for the Municipal Court of Marion County, Indiana, for one year before becoming the assistant regional counsel for the Federal Highway Administration and first assistant and chief counsel for the Illinois Department of Transportation until 1979.
Between 1979 and 1982, Mr. McCarthy served the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, D.C., as counsel for the committee on interstate and foreign commerce and as assistant counsel and counsel for the committee on public works and transportation. Holding a private practice in Springfield, Illinois, between 1982 and 1987, he joined the U.S. Department of Justice in Springfield as an acting U.S. trustee. Since 1988, he has excelled as a U.S. trustee for the Department of Justice in Indianapolis. In addition to his legal pursuits, Mr. McCarthy holds a diploma and a licentiate in sacred theology from the University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, which he cites as a crowning moment of his career. Looking toward the future, he intends to ease into a part-time role with the Department of Justice and enjoy life with his wife and family.
