Adam G. Forrest

Adam Forrest was raised in Richmond, Indiana and graduated from RHS in 1993.  Although he can’t find his diploma, he affirms that, thereafter, he was accepted to and actually did graduate from Marquette University in 1997 with a Degree in Public Relations.  He then traveled south and west and to a much warmer climate to attend another Jesuit collegiate institution and graduated from the Creighton University School of Law in 2000, where he served as a published writer and Student Articles Editor of the Creighton Law Review.  Following three long years in law school, he accepted a position as a staff attorney for the Illinois Supreme Court and followed up that experience with a scheduled two-year period of employment as a law clerk to the Honorable Magistrate Judge William G. Hussmann, Jr., of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana.  Adam joined the firm in 2004 and became a partner in 2009 (where his name appeared above the letter head line delineating the difference between partners and associates or of counsel attorneys of the firm, good enough).  Adam’s practice focuses on all aspects of civil litigation, including appeals, collection law, family law, criminal law, and estate planning and administration.  He is also fortunate enough to represent several corporate and municipal clients, including various towns and townships in eastern Indiana.  Adam is blessed to be the most recent “Mike Brady” of the world as he and his wife, Adrianne, have blended a family of three boys (his) and three girls (hers), although their Alice has yet to be located.  Adam has served as the Chairman and past Board Member of the Wayne County Foundation, the past President and Board Member of Eastern Indiana Junior Achievement, and past Vice President and Board Member of the Wayne County Pro Bono Commission.  Adam currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Wayne County, Indiana, and as a volunteer for Junior Achievement for all kindergarten classes for Charles Elementary School in Richmond.  Adam has previously served as a Board Member of the Cope Environmental Center and will commence service as a Board Member of the Morrisson Reeves Library in Richmond in 2020.  Adam is able to keep his family, his friends, his board, and his volunteer commitments and responsibilities in a reasonably pleased state of mind to the detriment of his golf handicap.  He wishes to do better every day on all fronts but fails miserably (just ask his assistant, Teressa Smith, who covers for him like a champ).  Feel free to give him a call or send him an email to consider any of your legal needs in Indiana, Illinois, the United States District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Indiana, or the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
