For his entire legal career, Adam Herron has practiced fiduciary litigation, representing clients in disputes involving trusts, estates, guardianships, and business entities. But not all disputes involve fiduciary duties—Adam also represents parties in will contests, contested heirships, common-law-spouse claims, disagreements over the meaning of provisions in wills and trusts, and other non-fiduciary disputes relating to trusts, estates, guardianships, businesses, and the probate process. Nor is there always a dispute—Adam often guides clients through uncontested will probates and heirships, the guardianship process, and trust and estate administration. After being an associate--and eventually a partner/shareholder--at another Austin-based firm, Adam made a move and joined Ruffner Schoenbaum Murphy Banaszak PLLC (now Ruffner Schoenbaum Murphy PLLC) in 2022 to further hone his skills and continue practicing in those areas.

When he’s not in court or at his desk, Adam is actively involved in the legal community—judging mock-trial competitions, serving as a board member of both the Civil Litigation Section and the Estate Planning and Probate Section of the Austin Bar, presenting at—and attending—continuing-legal-education courses, and participating in state- and local-bar events.

While he was born and raised in Minnesota, Adam has called Texas home since 2011—when he moved to Waco to attend Baylor University School of Law. After graduation, Adam moved to East Austin, where he lives with his dog Carter.

Client Satisfaction
While part of Ikard, Golden, Jones, and then later Ikardlaw, Adam Herron represented me in a lawsuit related to my father's Estate and Mother's Trust. It was a three year quagmire, rapidly going nowhere, prior to my hiring. It has finally been resolved, thanks to the professional tenacity of Mr. Herron. I am a totally satisfied client.
