With their roots firmly planted in Polk County, two former public defenders partnered up for hometown law firm.

Adam Stohler and Ivey Prevatte are making a home in downtown Lake Wales. Adam Stohler was born and raised in Madison County, Indiana. He moved to Lake Wales in 2003. He attended Warner University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. After graduating in 2005, he married his wife Maggie and started a family. He worked as an admissions counselor for Warner University before making a move to Spokane, Washington. While in Washington, he attended Gonzaga University School of Law. He returned to Florida in May 2009, and hit the ground running as a public defender for the tenth Judicial Circuit Court of Polk County and Highlands. After 5 years, he knew the time had come to take the next step in starting his own firm.
