Who We Are
Our Vision and Philosophy
We are a law firm that values leadership, connection, and solving interesting problems, while creating opportunities to help others and have fun in the process.
We add value. Value isn’t about the exchange of time for money. Value is anticipating problems before they happen, connecting people as a result of years spent building relationships, helping clients set a course for growth and putting it into action.
Lots of lawyers can perform a task for a fee. We’re different. We see lawyers as facilitators: “Here’s how we can get this done.” NOT “Here’s why you can’t do this.”
Some attorneys have dreamt since childhood of becoming the next Atticus Finch, Matlock, or Johnnie Cochran. Adam Fetterman wanted to be a race car driver. He took the long way to get there.
Growing up in south Florida, Adam spent his after-school hours helping his parents in their small, growing law firm and his weekends watching races at the old Moroso racetrack. He got his first job outside the family at the age of fourteen as a bag boy at Publix and worked there all through high school.
Like many kids who want to escape their small-town life, Adam left for Boston and attended Brandeis University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology. After a stint studying and writing poetry and cooking in restaurants, Adam realized law school might present a better opportunity to explore his strengths. He was right, and graduated with honors from the University of Miami School of Law, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Business Law Journal, interned for a federal judge, and competed on the national trial competition team.
After launching his legal career in the mountains of North Carolina (where he is still licensed to practice), Adam returned to Florida to put down roots, start a family, and build his practice. Building on a foundation of public service developed as General Counsel to St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara, Adam stepped into politics and had the honor of representing the Treasure Coast as a member of the Florida House of Representatives from 2008 to 2010. His experience inspired him to use his leadership skills to serve many charitable organizations and initiatives and build a law practice serving the needs of small businesses, non-profits, and local governments.
Service to the community is a core value for Adam. In 2012, he and his wife Mindi founded The Inner Truth Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the needs of survivors of sexual abuse and rape. As chair of the St. Lucie Children’s Coalition, he led a team to save the Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County and guarantee its continued existence. He has led numerous community building initiatives including successful campaigns to fund school security needs, critical capital development, and crucial county-wide infrastructure.
Adam has served on the boards of the Boys and Girls Clubs, Healthy Start Coalition, and the Florida Justice Association, and volunteered for numerous local organizations. He currently serves as President of the statewide Florida Association of Police Attorneys and on the Board of Trustees for St. Lucie Medical Center. In 2018, he completed Leadership Florida’s Cornerstone program, Class XXXVI, one of fifty leaders chosen annually from around the state to work together to build a better Florida.
And in 2010, he finally started down the path to make his childhood dream come true. On the weekends you can find him on the racetrack, not on the sidelines, racing all over the state of Florida, with his son Noah as his crew chief. When not racing, Adam and his family enjoy rock-and-roll, bicycling, watersports, cooking, and of course, shopping for the coolest socks he can find.

Musician and composer, amateur botanist, science fiction writer. Attorney Brook Miscoski has taken a unique path in his pursuit of the practice of law, and that has made all the difference.
Born in rural New Jersey, Brook spent his early years learning the game of golf on a course built by his father and grandfather and watched his first 76ers game in nearby Philadelphia from a fire escape. He still hates the Lakers and Celtics to this day.
Relocating to Florida in search of opportunity and independence, his family settled in Martin County where he developed early on the thick skin needed for the practice of law in response to the cries of “Yankee go home.” Brook found his place in music, taking up the trumpet in the local church band, and in exploring the local ecology, sparking the love he has today for Florida’s beaches and landscapes.
Brook pursued degrees in music from Florida Southern College and the University of South Florida, where he had the pleasure of hearing his own music compositions performed by the Florida Orchestra. After completing his master’s degree, Brook traveled the country tutoring and teaching, exploring our country from the Mojave to Glacier National Park to Elliot Bay.
Looking for an opportunity to combine the creativity of music with an intellectual, problem solving pursuit, he made his way to the Northwestern University School of Law. He took in everything the great city of Chicago had to offer, served on the Law Review, and graduated cum laude. He was invited to serve in the University’s Center for International Human Rights and led a team of ten researchers investigating death penalty practices around the world. Their work culminated in a presentation of their findings to the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France.
Graduating into the late 2000’s recession wasn’t easy, and Brook’s opportunities brought him to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where he rose to managing partner of a small business law firm, spearheading both a transactional and litigation practice. He found in this practice the appreciation he has working with businesses and non-profits in a cost-effective, sustainable manner where the relationship between attorney and client is more partnership than simple production of tasks. But coming home at night to a house full of dogs and cats was no substitute for the family he missed back in Florida, and Brook returned to the Sunshine State in 2018.
Outside of the office, Brook can be found chasing his beagle Daisy as she hunts crabs at Walton Rocks Beach, gardening in his yard, playing in the Port Saint Lucie Community Band and the Treasure Coast Symphony Orchestra, or working on the next great American science fiction novel.
