He is a practicing attorney in Warrensburg at local firm, Harris, Harris, & Gilbert, LLC maintaining a general practice with concentration on family law, civil litigation, municipal government, and probate matters. He is a graduate of Univ. of Missouri, School of Law in 2012 where he was a member of the law school’s Attorney General Cup and TYLA mock trial competition teams. Adam’s time with UCM is a return to the program, where he was a competitor from Fall, 2006 until his graduation from UCM in December, 2008 earning regional and national awards. Combining undergraduate and law school competition, and now his role as coach, he has over a decade of experience in mock trial. His goal for UCM is to grow and support a program designed to produce graduates prepared for the rigors of law school, with a realistic expectation of the practice of law.
