A Louisiana native for his entire life, Mr. Adams graduated from the Louisiana State University Law Center in 2015 with a Juris Doctor degree and a Diploma in Comparative Law. During his time in law school, he academically excelled in criminal and constitutional law classes.

Mr. Adams clerked for two-and-a-half years at the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney's Office while in school. While in the office, he was introduced to courtroom procedure, refined his legal research skills, helped prosecutors prepare criminal cases, dealt with evidence, and observed numerous trials. He also participated in the Louisiana State University Prosecution Clinic, in which he was sworn in as a Special Assistant District Attorney. While in the clinic, he received intensive instruction in criminal prosecution techniques and assisted in the prosecution of misdemeanors and felonies. In addition to obtaining criminal prosecution experience, he developed good working relationships with many of the prosecutors in the office.

Mr. Adams practices in the areas of criminal defense, criminal appeals, post-conviction proceedings, family law, and personal injury law. In criminal matters, he is passionate about the work that he does and strives to give clients the best representation that he can. Believing that all Americans are entitled to the fullest protections of the Constitution, he vigorously works to defend clients through complete investigation of the factual issues in every case, through legal research, and through negotiations or trials when appropriate. On the civil side, he has helped clients undergoing tough issues, such as divorce, child custody, and protective orders. Regardless of what the issues are, he maintains open communication with clients and delivers strong representation.

In his spare time, he enjoys reading, the outdoors, running, dining at restaurants, and visiting family and friends.
