Adams is a graduate of Shaker Heights schools.
Adams focuses her practice on a range of interconnected legal disciplines, including health care, mergers and acquisitions, and a variety of corporate law matters. Putting her focus squarely on her clients, Adams uses her experience and ability to understand her clients’ strategic goals to find creative and impactful solutions to their legal problems.
