About the candidate:
Adam is a lifelong Las Vegas resident. His family moved here when he was just a few years old in the 70s, more than 40 years ago. Growing up in Las Vegas, he attended public schools and graduated from Bonanza High School in 1989.
He was the first from his family to graduate from college. Adam then went on to graduate from the University of San Diego Law School in 1998. Soon after, he moved back to Vegas for good and began his 20+ year legal career in the area of civil litigation. He has represented thousands of people from all walks of life and litigated a vast number of social justice issues affecting the Las Vegas community. While he has litigated several complex matters, including insurance bad faith practices and defective products such as recent cases involving spin bikes or printing presses or beer kegs that explode, his passion has been representing children. He was one of the first volunteers for the Children’s Attorneys Project nearly two decades ago.
He has also served as a Justice of the Peace Pro Tem, court appointed Arbitrator, appeared in the Nevada Appeals Court, the Nevada Supreme Court, the Arizona Appeals Court, the Arizona Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco and other US District Courts in Southern Nevada, Northern Nevada and Arizona.
In addition to his extensive courtroom and legal experience, he has also served on several boards of directors for non-profit organizations and owned or managed several businesses in our community.
Adam’s unique skill set as an experienced litigator, business owner and volunteer makes him uniquely qualified to represent the community he grew up in.
He has been married for 21 years, and his two children were born and raised in Las Vegas.
