Adam’s competitive spirit drives him to utilize his skills in the courtroom setting. Adam knew early on that he wanted to be on the frontlines of the judicial system and help others where things are often most contentions--throughout litigation. His decision to practice family law stems from his personal belief that our relationships within the family shape who we become. “I want to help families. Whether faced with the hardship of separation, or the joys of adoption, it’s my job to alleviate some of the stresses of the legal system and allow my clients to put their family first.”

Adam's “Why”

In his free time, Adam enjoys hiking, watching his favorite sports teams, and attending concerts (he’s been to over 200)! His competitive spirit is demonstrated, in part, by his experience running marathons and ultramarathons. Adam’s next running goal is to complete 100 miles in 24 hours!
