    “Adam’s got great instincts.”
    “We have extremely high expectations of him when it comes to his knowledge of the law.”


    "I learned early in my career that in order to have quality and enduring client relationships, it is important to be mindful of six key lessons: 1. Always, always, always be candid, straightforward, and prepared when communicating with clients. 2. Clients hire me to help them solve their business problems, not bill hours. 3. Spend quality time, on my dime, getting to know my clients personally. Not because I want them to continue to hire me, but because I want to strengthen our personal friendship and human connection. 4. Listen more and talk less and never presume that I know “what is best” for my clients. 5. It is important to remember that any knowledgeable attorney can give a client quality legal answers, while only exceptional attorneys offer thoughtful and wise advice. 6. It is important that I love the practice of law. If I ever stop loving being an attorney and the thrill of working with clients, then I should find a new vocation."
