Since earning a J.D. from Northern Illinois University College of Law in 2004, Adam has served clients with sensitivity, empathy, and humor (when appropriate). He is an insightful communicator who clearly explains issues and seeks the simplest and most efficient way to solve complicated problems.
For Adam, the subject of Estate Planning is personal. Adam’s dedication to helping families create family protection and legacy plans comes from creating his own plan before his wife had their first daughter. Adam also had the painful experience of watching his dad lose their family farm because it was not protected with a family legacy plan.
These experiences fuel his passion to help families celebrate a legacy when someone passes and avoid a giant mess and expensive public court case. He has now helped clients through all walks of life protect their loved ones and their legacies in the event of their death by building comprehensive Family Legacy Protection Plans.
