Adam obtained favorable outcomes in trial verdicts and settlements and in his first few years out of law school. His experience led him to be named a Rising Star by Texas Monthly Magazine after only three years practicing law. In 2011, Adam expanded his client base to include Texas and New Mexico. He became an expert in the laws of both states. He spent half his time in Texas and the other half in New Mexico.

Adam is experienced to help you.
Adam has represented thousands of clients who have been injured. Whether he tried their case to a jury or reached a settlement, each client was met with respect, transparency, and honesty.

Adam has practiced in 27 different states, 24 federal courts, and has even appeared at the U.S. Supreme Court. He has handled cases involving medical malpractice, car accidents, pharmaceutical products, medical devices, oilfield accidents, birth injuries, and more. Adam’s cases have ranged from leading the fight on behalf of 3,500 clients injured by the pharmaceutical drug Reglan® in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court to trying a case in front of a New Mexico jury on behalf of a widow who lost his spouse due to medical malpractice, and many, many cases in between. Adam’s greatest joy is fighting zealously for his clients to obtain a favorable result in their case.
