Adam Post strives to be the consummate courtroom litigator, and his work in the firm’s Insurance Defense practice gives him ample opportunity to pursue that path.

Adam set his sights on the courtroom while clerking for a law firm in college.  After completing an undergraduate business degree at Wayne State University, he went on to earn his law degree, magna cum laude, from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, where he served in leadership roles on law review and moot court, received various academic honors, and unlike most other law students, appeared in court as a student prosecutor through a summer internship with the Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan.

Since entering the practice, Adam has focused on medical malpractice, first-party no-fault and third-party automobile negligence cases, and general negligence claims.  He is particularly adept at reviewing medical records, allowing him to thoroughly understand the claims involved in each case and to effectively dispute the extent of a plaintiff’s claimed injuries before mediators and case evaluation panels.  He has also developed a successful motion practice, and his written and oral advocacy skills have helped him secure significant summary judgment victories in federal court. He joined Zausmer, August & Caldwell, P.C. after working for highly regarded medical malpractice and insurance defense firms.

Adam’s involvement within the legal community also includes his service on the Board of Directors for the University of Detroit Mercy Law Alumni Association and on the ice in a lawyer hockey league.
