A Message From Adam Bantner

“I have always been a hard worker, starting with my first job at the local pharmacy when I was fourteen years old. My work ethic has only strengthened since then. With the exception of two of my three years of law school, I have worked ever since. I am currently a small business owner running my law firm, The Bantner Firm. After several years of practicing law and raising my son, I began looking for ways to give back to the community that has given me so much. I began serving my Chamber of Commerce, our local Bar Association and our community. Soon, my peers and colleagues elevated me to leadership positions within these organizations. Additionally, I have earned the highest level of distinction offered by the Florida Bar – board certification. I am a part of a small percentage of Florida lawyers who can ethically identify as an expert in the field of practice, and upon deliberate reflection of my past and future, I’ve decided that I can be more impactful in my service to the community from the bench. It is for this reason that I ask for your vote in August 2018.”
