I learned from my mother at a young age a simple but salient lesson: if you are going to do something, do it right. My approach to client service is to do everything in my ability and power to deliver the desired result, efficiently and effectively.  Despite the fact that I often deal with sensitive and emotionally charged matters, I am able to help my clients navigate a straightforward and level-headed legal approach that is focused on the outcome. 

As a shareholder in the estate, trust, and probate litigation practice group at Reminger Co., LPA, Adam focuses his practice on matters of estate, trust, probate and guardianship controversy.  Whether he is retained to pursue or defend a will contest, a trust dispute, or to challenge the activities of a trustee, executor or guardian, he has garnered a reputation for developing and implementing effective litigation tactics and a common sense approach to resolution.

Adam was selected as the 2015 and 2018 “Best Lawyers” Lawyer of the Year, Cleveland, for litigating trusts and estates and has been honored as an Ohio Super Lawyer since 2012.  He was peer reviewed by Martindale-Hubbell® and given an AV Preeminent® rating.

Adam has been elected a fellow to the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel and has authored and lectured nationally on issues pertaining to client decision making, legal capacity, the exercise of undue influence and financial exploitation of the elderly.  He also taught the wills and trust and estate course at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. 

Adam is involved in the community, having served as the chairperson for the Consortium Against Adult Abuse, a five-county taskforce charged with developing plans, strategies, and education to help the community prevent against abuse, financial exploitation and neglect of the elderly.  By appointment of the Cuyahoga County Probate Court, he also served on the steering committee to create an I-Team consisting of multiple professional disciplines whose role is to troubleshoot complicated cases relating to the plight of at-risk adults.   He is the immediate past president of the William K. Thomas Chapter of the American Inns of Court and is also a member of the Ohio State Bar Association Estate Planning Trust and Probate Section Council where he is actively involved in legislative efforts relevant to the law of probate, estates, trusts, and guardianships.

Testimonials

“We were represented by Adam in an extremely complex will contest/trust lawsuit. His representation of us has been so extraordinarily excellent that I felt a need to reach out to let you know how impressed we are with his services. I have over 40 years of experience in the trust/estate arena. During this time, I have worked with over a thousand trust/estate attorneys from not only the local area but from Cleveland, Atlanta, Columbus, California and New York. I unequivocally state that Adam is by far the absolute best trust and estate attorney I have ever worked with. Many of his ideas were nothing less than brilliant.”

“Adam always kept us informed of all filings, what they were, what they meant, and what our strategies were. He was able to communicate these ideas in such a way to my assistants, who are not attorneys, and they were always able to understand his comments. Adam’s work was so outstanding and extraordinary that I felt compelled to let others know.”

“I want to thank Adam for all that he has done for my mother and myself. He has seen the injustices that have been done and has taken a positive approach to making our whole family unified once again.”

“Thank you to Adam, who was very supportive and helpful. I will always recommend him to others as a best-in-class lawyer in his field.”

“I would like thank Adam properly for his masterful interrogation, it really was terrific.”

“I can’t thank Adam enough for all he did. Whenever we went to court and he was at my side, I had no fear, and was confident he had my back.”

“I want to thank Adam for the work that he did on behalf of my mother. He accomplished more in the short time that he served her than any of the other attorneys combined. I am impressed with that. I also find Adam’s fees on her behalf to be reasonable considering the amount of work he did in such a short period of time. Can’t thank Adam enough.”

“I want to thank Adam so very much for all his hard work to get me my house. I will be forever grateful. P.S. He’s a very kind man.”

“Just wanted to let you know what a great job Adam did at the deposition. He made me feel like I have the best attorney possible. I appreciate all of his hard work and concern. It shows.”

“Thank you to Adam for his great representation and obtaining a voluntary dismissal for me as a party to the pending action. Much appreciated. I’ll remember what he first told me as a client, as hard as it was for me: “not to worry.”

“I wanted to thank Adam again for all of his help with the guardianship lawsuit over my Dad’s estate. He was a great help at bringing it all to successful conclusion. We appreciate all that he did for us. I know that Adam endured significant frustration (we did too), but the end result was outstanding. Thanks again for persevering.” 

“I think Adam did an excellent job for us on my uncle’s estate and charged a very fair rate. If I ever have need in the future of Adam’s services, I would hire him without question and will recommend him to anybody I come in contact with that requires his service.”
