Chicago’s Premier Attorney in State and Federal Courts

Welcome to the Sam Adam Jr. Website!

For over 10 years, I have been dedicated to providing superior legal service to people throughout the state of Illinois and Wisconsin. I have spent most of my life in the courtroom. Some of my earliest memories include following my father, Sam Adam, Sr., around the halls of 26th and California. I take great pride in fighting for your rights and nothing excites me more than putting twelve in a box.

In 2008, at the age of 35, I had the honor of becoming the youngest member of the legal team that successfully defended R&B Superstar R. Kelly. In 2010, I was fortunate to represent Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich as his lead trial attorney, bringing to the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, the same witty and aggressive style that has been successful and admired inside and outside the legal community.

"For the next hour, Sam Adam Jr. cajoled, implored, challenged and entertained the Cook County jury deciding the R&B superstar's fate.

Sweat ran down his forehead as he delivered a largely improvised monologue filled with pop culture references, biblical quotations and a glimpse at how much the trial's outcome meant to him personally."

This excerpt from a Chicago Tribune article reveals a glimpse into what some have called, "The Sam Adam Show."

Sam Adam Jr. is a proud U-Wisconsin Alumni and a supporter of the March of Dimes, in honor of his daughter Sydney, who was born nearly four months premature.
