Adam Forrest

Adam G. Forrest was raised in Richmond, Indiana, and graduated from RHS in 1993 (since the last revision of his bio, his high school diploma has in fact been located so, it is official, he graduated high school).  After high school, he attended and actually graduated from Marquette University in 1997.  This feat is even more remarkable when you consider that he was a fraternity member of Sigma Phi Epsilon and enjoyed a tremendous college experience with a lot of other Warriors (some of the best people in this world).  Knowing the real world was out there, but that he wasn’t ready for it, he then traveled south and west with what was probably the last ticket for admission to the Creighton University School of Law.  He graduated with a JD in 2000 and was lucky enough to have an Article chosen for publication in, and serve as a Student Articles Editor of, the Creighton Law Review.  With no valid excuse to continue to avoid the real world and knowing that Sallie Mae would be a part of his life for the foreseeable future, he secured employment as a staff attorney for the Illinois Supreme Court and followed up that job experience by serving as a law clerk to the Honorable Magistrate Judge William G. Hussmann, Jr., of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana.

In 2004, Adam came home to Richmond and joined BBKCC in 2004.  Surprisingly, he was named partner in 2009 and, recently, the firm changed its name to BBFCS, Boston Bever Forrest Cross & Sickmann, which is remarkable considering Richmond is where it all started for him.

While in his 40s, Adam learned of “a lovely lady who was bringing up three very lovely girls” of her own.  Adam, of course, was practicing law and “was busy with three boys of his own.”  And yes, after the two met, they had a “hunch, that this group must somehow form a family” and that’s the way Adam became the newest “Mike Brady”.  Although the six kiddos are home, and there exists no Alice to help, there is a family dog, Simon, who is such a good dog.

While practicing law, Adam sure tries to keep his family, his friends, his boards, and his volunteer commitments and responsibilities in a reasonably pleased state of mind, and he does so all to the detriment of his golf game.  He wishes to do better every day on all fronts but often fails miserably (just ask his assistant, Teressa Smith, who covers for him like a champ).
