Adam is the founder of Rust Belt Business Law – a fast-growing law firm in a slow-growing town.
His mission: restoring the rust belt with entrepreneurship, job creation, and dad jokes.
Our firm helps small businesses pursue opportunities, create jobs, and improve our economy.
At one time Adam started a grilled cheese food truck. Before that, he launched a board game that brought national media attention. Adam spends his time now working on other ventures that are a little more grown up.
Adam is inspired by entrepreneurship and small business, direct response marketing, non-traditional and unexpected solutions, mindset & personal development, helping create businesses that serve the owners, and high performance driving.
