The law firm of Powell, Powell & Powell was first established in historic downtown Crestview, Florida, in 1951 by our founding partner, Gillis E. Powell, Sr. (1920-2011). As a young child in the 1920’s, Gillis Powell Sr. often attended court in DeFuniak Springs with his grandfather, Walton County Judge A.R. Campbell and his great-uncle, attorney Knox Gillis. Our family has had lawyers and judges for many generations in Crestview and DeFuniak Springs.
Crestview is the county seat of Okaloosa County and is strategically located in the north end of the county near Interstate 10 (I-10). Powell, Powell & Powell’s Crestview office is situated on Main Street in the heart of Crestview across the street from the Okaloosa County Courthouse, near the intersection of Highway 90 and Highway 85. Our location in downtown Crestview across from the courthouse is a prime location which allows us to serve the legal needs of clients in Crestview, as well as the surrounding areas, including Baker, Laurel Hill, and all of north Okaloosa County.
