A graduate of The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, Adam joined our firm in August 2014 immediately after taking the July 2014 Ohio Bar Examination. A native Clevelander, Adam’s passion has always been criminal defense and was thrilled when given the opportunity to return home to practice law alongside the knowledgeable and experienced lawyers at our firm.⁣

Adam concentrates his practice on criminal trials, appeals, civil litigation, as well as individuals and entities that are under investigation by a government or regulatory agency. Adam has defended companies and individuals in criminal and civil actions, as well as licensure actions before the Board of Professional Conduct of the Supreme Court of Ohio, the Board of Commissioners on Character and Fitness of the Supreme Court of Ohio, and most recently, the State Medical Board of Ohio and the State Pharmacy Board of Ohio.⁣

In the criminal law arena, Adam has experience handling a wide variety of cases throughout the State of Ohio including, but not limited to, aggravated murder, rape, sexual battery, felony and misdemeanor drug crimes, firearms offenses, escape, operating a vehicle while intoxicated, expungements, and many more.⁣

Inside and outside of the courtroom, Adam’s passion is to see that his clients receive every benefit of a defendant’s Sixth Amendment right to counsel. He has represented and continues to represent, all of his clients with equal zeal regardless of the criminal or civil allegations against them.⁣

When he is not in the office or the courthouse, Adam enjoys running, golfing, boxing, playing the drums, trying new restaurants and attending concerts. Living in the heart of downtown Cleveland, Adam not only experiences Cleveland’s resurging social scene but also, Adam is always close to the office and courthouse in the event of a client emergency.
