Adam is a skilled, experienced family law practitioner.  He believes it is vital clients understand what is going on every step of the way.  He believes it is his job to help them achieve optimal results.

Adam is an excellent listener and communicator. He is quickly able to listen to and understand his client’s concerns and goals, and then describe the methods and procedures best designed to accomplish those goals.

Adam has represented clients in Western Washington since moving to Pierce County in 2009. While also experienced in criminal defense, personal injury, and wills, he has focused entirely on family law since starting his own solo practice in 2012. During that time, he has focused on divorce, child custody, and domestic violence cases.

Through his years of practicing family law, he understands that every case is unique, and should be treated as such. Whether a case is ripe to be settled through negotiation or requires immediate court action, he works with his clients to establish a game plan that best addresses their needs. He believes that the most important role that an attorney plays is clearly communicating the potential consequences of every decision a client faces.

Family law cases can be the most difficult time in a person’s life, which is why Adam believes that it is important to have an attorney understands all sides of a case. He applies this pragmatic approach to every case he handles.
