Boehl Stopher & Graves, LLP, was originally founded in 1895 as Blakey, Quinn & Lewis. Through the early 1900s, the Firm acted as adjusters with authority to settle claims on behalf of insurance companies. Mr. Joseph E. Stopher was one of the first attorneys associated with the firm to try cases beginning in the 1940s. Since that time, the firm has become known as one of the ‘Most Prolific Trial Law Firms’ in the state according to The Kentucky Trial Court Review.
The Firm became known as Boehl Stopher & Graves, LLP in April of 1993, coinciding with the move of the Firm’s Louisville office to the Aegon Center at Fourth and Market Streets. Although the Firm name has undergone five alterations since its inception, the firm has never merged in its history making it somewhat unique. All growth has been internal.
