Adam C. Sims
Columbus, OH




Before joining Wolinetz | Horvath | Brown in 2018, Adam worked with a small law firm in Columbus for a wide variety of clients in various litigation contexts including business, commercial, contract, real estate, landlord/tenant, and domestic relations disputes. Whatever the context, he strives to take a client-centered approach to lawyering rooted in respect for the dignity and free will of every person.

A native of the Cleveland area, Adam earned his B.A. in 2010 from the University of Notre Dame and his M.A.R. in 2012 from Yale Divinity School.

After Adam decided that a career in academic theology was not the right fit for him, he returned to his home state and earned his J.D. in 2015 at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. While in law school, he worked as a law clerk for the Franklin County Public Defender and the Ohio Poverty Law Center.

In his spare time, Adam enjoys playing cello and guitar, being outdoors, reading anything from novels to pop-science articles, and spending time with his girlfriend, family, and friends.
