Adam Stelly

Adam Johnson star logo tiny

Adam grew up in Moss Bluff, cruising Ryan Street and blaring Kris Kross. After graduating from Sam Houston, he obtained an undergraduate degree from L.S.U., followed by a Juris Doctor from Southern. While at L.S.U., he traded his fraternity dues for a motorcycle and a Members Only jacket, but this was short-lived. Nonetheless, it’s evidence of an adventurous spirit, coupled with occasional poor decision-making. Adam ultimately found the love of his life, Ashley, behind the bar at Walk-Ons. They have two very cute sons, Jack and James. He practices law with his dad, Terry, and brother, Jonathan. You’ll often see crowds gather outside the courthouse when news spreads he has successfully channeled his inner Matlock and exonerated a client - this is when he shines bright like a diamond, has moves like Jagger, and performs a highly technical “happy dance.”
