A detail-oriented and fierce litigator, Adel is part of the firm’s Appellate Group (which was recognized for the 6th year in a row by the U.S. News – Best Lawyers® and ranked a National Tier 3 in the 2022 U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” list). His practice is focused on appellate litigation and drafting trial-level dispositive motions and briefs.
Adel takes pride in the way he attends to clients and aims to always exceed expectations. One client described Adel as “the most professional, knowledgeable, and thorough individual I have hired for any contracted professional service, both as an individual and in my professional career.” Another client said that Adel “was very knowledgeable about the area of law we were interested in and was incredibly responsive. We know Adel had other clients (our issue wasn’t full time!), but we always felt we had his total attention.”
During law school, Adel served as a judicial intern for the Honorable Robert H. Cleland in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. He also served as a Student Attorney at the Federal Pro Se Legal Assistance Clinic in the same court.
