Fascinated by the ‘mind behind the mask', Attorney Adam Akeel has been an avid student of psychology since 2011. This lifelong study has provided Adam with a unique advantage as a litigator.

In 2016, Adam joined Akeel & Valentine, PLC to fight for the greater good alongside his father. Since joining, Adam has been heavily involved in all aspects of litigation. Adam has a passion for research and writing and has authored countless briefs on unique legal issues in State and Federal courts throughout the country-including several briefs before the United States Supreme Court.

Adam's goal is to win on paper. His legal writing has resulted in many favorable outcomes against institutions, municipalities, and fortune 100 and 500 companies. A deep legal thinker, he has an innate ability to digest and understand large bodies of case law relating to unique and complex legal issues. Awarded the first of its kind accolade as an "Intellectually Curious Genius" by his law school, Adam's creativity is seen throughout his writing, much of which has been borrowed by State and Federal judges in the drafting of their judicial decisions.

Adam is also experienced in litigating class and collective actions throughout the country. In the early stages of his career, Adam litigated cases against large corporations, universities, and municipalities for civil rights and constitutional violations. Now, much of Adam's time is spent litigating large nationwide cases against the insurance and pharmaceutical industries for their anticompetitive and fraudulent conduct.

In his down time, Adam likes to read books on psychology, philosophy, business, and history.
