If Adam had not felt a calling to the law and received so many honors, he might have turned to his other dream profession as a karaoke DJ, spinning some of his favorite Third Day songs. He loves boating and waterskiing and grew up riding horses.
Adam’s favorite getaway is a stay at his brother-in-law’s beachside rental home in Panama with his wife and three sons.
