ADELE I. STONE

ATTORNEY/SHAREHOLDER & OFFICE HEAD, FORT LAUDERDALE OFFICE, BUCHANAN INGERSOLL & ROONEY, FORT LAUDERDALE

Stone started with a small Hollywood firm with eight lawyers. After two mergers, she became a shareholder at Buchanan. “I don’t like first days on the job, so I’ve only worked for one law firm my entire career,” she says. Buchanan, a national firm, has Florida offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Tallahassee. Stone currently chairs The Innocence Project of Florida, which seeks to exonerate innocent people and get them released from prison.

SOMETHING SURPRISING I was born on an Air Force base in Morocco (my dad was enlisted in the Air Force). I don’t know why people find that so intriguing, but they do.
NEW HOBBY I have been more engaged in birding these last couple of years. I found that birders are very nice people.
