Adam is a partner with Burchell MacDougall LLP and practices exclusively in civil litigation, including personal injury and insurance matters, debt claims, estate disputes, construction liens, labour and employment law, and corporate commercial litigation.
Truro, Nova Scotia is Adam’s hometown, and he considers himself very fortunate to be able to return home to practice law and build his career. He graduated from Saint Mary’s University with a Bachelor of Environmental Studies (Honours) and Biology, before attending University of Ottawa for law school.
Adam decided to become a lawyer because he “wanted to do something useful and help people solve their problems.” He made the decision to join Burchell MacDougall because of the firm’s reputation for high quality legal work, community involvement and its collegial atmosphere.
“I really like speaking with clients and hearing what their legal issues are and what dispute they are facing, and then talking through the potential next steps and solutions that might assist them in resolving the dispute and getting them the peace of mind they are looking for.”
In his spare time, Adam likes to spend time with his family including his two young sons. When not in the office, he can be found at the cottage or travelling.
Adam is an active volunteer in his local community, including Chair of the STEPS on Arthur Foundation board (formerly Colchester Community Workshops Foundation), a board member of the Rotary Club of Truro, a United Way of Colchester campaign team member, and a Northern Opportunities for Business Limited (NOBL) Investment Committee member.
