Paul Adam moved to Montana with his family in the early 90's and grew up on the west end of Billings. In 2003, Paul graduated from Billings West High School and began college at the University of Nebraska. Paul ultimately graduated from the University of Montana in 2008 with degrees in International Business and Business Management. After college, Paul worked as a roofer while also volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA). His service as a CASA volunteer ultimately inspired him to go to law school and seek a career in protecting the rights of victims and the disadvantaged.
Paul attended law school at the University of Montana School of Law with a focus in dispute resolution and competed on the law school's negotiation team for all three years. Upon graduation and successful completion of the bar exam in 2013, Paul accepted a clerkship for the Honorable Judge Gregory Todd back in his hometown of Billings. Paul then served as a Yellowstone Deputy County Attorney for several years trying cases and prosecuting misdemeanor and felony crimes.
In 2016, Paul began working at Russ Plath Law, primarily representing plaintiffs in workers' compensations cases. Paul credits his style of practicing law to his mentor, Russ Plath, who exemplified integrity and compassion for the injured and disabled above all else. Paul worked for the Odegaard Miller firm in 2019 before joining Colin Gerstner to form Gerstner Adam Law, PLLC in early 2020. Here, Paul continues to specialize in representing plaintiffs in workers' compensation and personal injury cases.
Paul has spent much of his childhood and adult life backpacking and fly-fishing throughout the Beartooth Mountains and Montana. Paul shares his passion for the outdoors with his beautiful wife, Emily, and their three sons, Knox , Brooks and Hayes.
