Outside Of the Office

When he isn’t advocating on his clients’ behalf, Adam spends most of his time bouldering at the rock gym, hiking, and skiing. Whenever possible he includes his dog Lola Bean in his adventures. If he isn’t outside, he likes to sit down with a book to read or play some video games.

When Adam took over my case I knew immediately I was in good hands. From start to finish he went out of his way to make sure I was well informed and at the end of the day got me everything I wanted and even continued to check in on me. I would 10/10 recommend Adam to anyone.
