Adam joins GHV after three years with the Center for Family Representation, where he litigated child abuse, child neglect, custody, and termination of parental rights cases in Manhattan and Queens Family Courts. As a staff attorney for CFR he gained extensive experience in conducting pre-trial hearings, trials, witness examinations, and motion practice.
Because CFR closely coordinates their legal and social work teams in an interdisciplinary model, Adam also became familiar with navigating many of the social services and related agencies in and around New York City. Along with his teammates, he was able to successfully reunite many families who had been separated by the foster care system.
Adam also has prior experience interning with local and national legal non-profits in the areas of Housing Law, Elder & Disability Law, and LGBT Law and Advocacy.
Adam is a 2014 graduate of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. He graduated with concentrations in Litigation and Constitutional Law & Rights and was a two-year member of the Cardozo Moot Court Honor Society as a competitive oralist and Executive Board Member.
Adam graduated from Grinnell College in 2011, majoring in Political Science and Gender, Women’s, & Sexuality Studies. At Grinnell, he captained the student-run Mock Trial program and studied off-campus in Washington D.C., where he interned at the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.
Outside of the office, Adam spends most of his spare time watching sports, tinkering with gadgets and technology, and diving deep into obscure Reddit threads. After spending his childhood and college years in small-town Iowa, he also takes time to enjoy the many big city wonders around New York.
