Adam Schenker

Adam is a trial lawyer who has taken 30 jury cases to verdict and has also completed hundreds of court trials. Before joining Glascock Street Waxler, Adam was a Deputy District Attorney with the Yamhill County District Attorney’s Office where he prosecuted person, property, and traffic crimes as well as juvenile delinquency and dependency cases for the State. Prior to becoming a DDA, he was a judicial clerk for Judge Merri Souther Wyatt and other family law judges in the Multnomah County Circuit Court. Both positions afforded him the opportunity to hone his courtroom experience. Now he brings those years of courtroom experience to defend GSW clients who have been involved in traffic collisions.

Adam earned his undergraduate degree in Writing from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He then worked as a legal assistant in Washington, D.C. in patent litigation and prosecution before moving to Oregon to attend law school. He earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Oregon and was admitted to the Oregon State Bar in 2012.

He is an avid Ducks fan, but when he is not watching the Ducks, he can often be found enjoying the outdoors with this family. As a native of Los Angeles, he especially enjoys the clean water, clear air, and trees of the Pacific Northwest.
