Adam D. 水垢,J.D.
NC State Board of Legal Specialization - 家庭法 Specialist
伍德拉夫家庭法律组织 Attorney, Adam D. Furr has been practicing family law since 2012. Adam was also certified by the NC Bar as a 家庭法 Specialist in 2018. Considered a caring 和 compassionate attorney by his clients, Adam also has a deep love for financial calculations.
“Frankly, I love numbers, spreadsheets, 和 Microsoft Excel. I went to business school because I had an interest in corporate 和 tax law 和 thought I might find my niche there. 然而, 整天和实体打交道, 相对于个人而言, just didn’t seem to fit my ultimate goal of helping people. 家庭法适合. I get to spend roughly half of my time on the numbers/corporate/tax law end of cases; I spend the other half of my time on individuals,” 说亚当.
这次是和他的客户, preparing them for mediation or court 和 helping to educate them on the North Carolina Law that gives him the most satisfaction.
“I take pride in being able to advocate for 和 st和 side by side with individuals 和 their families in what is likely the hardest time in their lives. I know that I have made a difference when I hear that sigh of relief when the judge rules, or get that hug from a client at the end of the case, 或者感谢邮件/卡片. But the biggest sense of satisfaction comes when I see a client even just months after the case is complete, 他们看起来像是另一个人. Seeing clients getting back to their lives, 微笑, 和 enjoying life again makes it all worthwhile,” 说亚当.
An area he would like to see understood more from the general population is the legal process, 作为一个整体, specifically the time it takes to reach a client’s end result in family law.
“It is a rare occasion that a client’s goals are accomplished overnight. Family law often requires, at the very least, negotiation, mediation, litigation. Each of these steps takes time, sometimes years. 然而, this time is spent working towards the client’s goals. Essentially, I would impress upon potential clients that these things take time. 经常, to get the best result that the law will allow, you have to put the time 和 effort into the case,” 说亚当.
As a family law attorney at 伍德拉夫家庭法律组织, Adam appreciates the value of having three North Carolina Board Certified 家庭法 Specialists available to discuss case law.
“I have access to a wealth of knowledge 和 experience. I can bounce ideas off of them constantly 和 hear varying views 和 opinions on a topic. 它可能是最大的资源. Oh 和, they are a lot of fun outside of work too,” 说亚当.
一路上都是狗. I have two incredible dogs at the moment. One is Gatsby, a Great Dane 和 the other is Atticus, a local rescue. If it were possible, I would bring my dogs to work every day.
