Serving Lake, Marion & Sumter Counties
Genuine and down-to-earth, attorney A.J. Rohe enjoys helping people. It was a personal experience with the law when he was young that encouraged him to pursue a career in the legal field.
“The law is more complicated than most people realize,” A.J. says. “I know. I was one of those people!”
Fortunately for residents of Lake, Sumter, and Marion counties, his practice is available to a variety of clients, including those in need of services in civil litigation, real estate, family law, estate planning, probate, guardianships, taxation issues, personal injury, medical malpractice, criminal law, transactional work, and DUI. There are presently four attorneys on the team, which includes A.J., Thomas Holden, Ashley S. Hunt, and Kristopher A. Vanderlaan. Personal injury and medical malpractice cases are handled in conjunction with attorneys from other firms. A fifth attorney will soon be joining the firm.
What started as one person working nearly exclusively in family law has grown into a practice that is 14 strong. The four attorneys and 10 support staff members see to it that every client receives quality, personalized attention and care.
“We keep very current on changes in the law in order to offer our clients the best solutions,” A.J. says. “We explain the procedures thoroughly and make sure our clients understand the process every step of the way.”
In a further effort to stay on the cutting edge of the law, the professionals at Rohe Law dedicate time every morning to staff training and improvement.

He has been practicing law for more than 12 years.For A.J., the most rewarding aspect of his career is helping someone in need.
The firm’s main office is located in downtown Tavares, and their second location in Oxford, just half a mile from The Villages, recently opened.
“The addition of our second office allows us to expand our services into Marion and Sumter counties,” A.J. says. “We’re excited to assist even more clients with their legal needs.”
“When someone walks through our door in what they believe to be a desperate situation and we’re able to get them pointed in the right direction, that’s what practicing law is all about,” he says. “We provide each client with a clear, logical plan and give them our unembellished opinions and straight-forward options regarding their case. I think our clients appreciate our honesty.”
