Adam is a native Tennessean who recently moved back to Tennessee to start his own law practice. After graduating from Lee University in Cleveland, TN, he went to seminary in Missouri, pastored in North Carolina, and then went to law school at the University of North Carolina, driven by a passion to broaden his ability to advocate for people. After law school he worked exclusively in post-conviction, helping federal inmates across the country during the COVID pandemic, and helping numerous clients in state penitentiaries across North Carolina. He has since worked on federal asset forfeiture cases, and spent countless hours pouring through the asset forfeiture laws specific to Tennessee to create this guidebook. He and his wife Kate live in middle Tennessee with their twin boys and their Siberian husky, Juneau.
