Ohio Criminal Defense, DUI Defense & Bankruptcy Lawyer
Interviewer: How did you get into the practice of law? How long have you been practicing law? And how do you feel about it?
Adam: Actually, I had a skydiving accident and broke my hip, so I was laid up for a while and decided I didn’t like working in management anymore so I went to law school. 2005 must have been when I started law school.
Interviewer: How long have you been practicing?
Adam: I’ve been active almost three years now. I’m going on my third year. I clerked for about four and half prior to taking the, bar which was another accident that I had. I was in a motor vehicle accident and I was a pedestrian. I had to have 7 surgeries on my hand. Yeah, it was ugly. So it laid me up when you have to take the bar three days.
Interviewer: You had a couple of accidents, how come you didn’t go into personal injury law or accidents or something like that?
Adam: I do them a little. It’s one of those things I haven’t seen even when I’m on the bar referral committee or anything like that. You don’t get a lot of calls on them because some of the bigger larger firms in the area put a ton of money into their advertising. They have $1 million or $2 million a year campaigns and it’s tough to compete.
Interviewer: What made you choose to focus on criminal law and divorce and other areas like that?
Adam: They’re steady, they’re constant. They’re always going to happen one way or another, especially, divorce and criminal law. You’re always going to have somebody do something wrong or odds are most people won’t stay married, if they do get married.
Interviewer: Do you enjoy working with these people that are in these situations?
Adam: Domestic tends to be a little bit more emotional and a little more volatile situation typically because you have emotions as opposed to where you have criminal and then you have somebody that either thinks that they did something wrong and admits to that to you or it did that to you or that really didn’t do something wrong or at least what they’re being accused of. Divorce, you have to usually talk to your client a little more, talk them down, get them back into the logical perspective of what the law appreciates, fairness, equity.
