I served in the U.S. Army prior to enrolling in law school.  In the middle of law school, our country experienced the tragic events of 9/11.  Two days later, I re-enlisted.  After working with the Army's contracting officers, I was able to complete law school while participating in R.O.T.C., and eventually serve our country as a JAG officer.

 

I am an Eagle Scout, and I remain heavily involved with the Boy Scouts of America.  I currently serve at the district level as the District Advancement Chair.  At the unit level, I serve as the Assistant Scout Master over the new Scout patrol for my son's Troop.  I have previously served as an Assistant District Commissioner, on the district Training Committee, as a Scout Master, and as a Chartered Organization Representative.  I have been blessed to be a 4-time faculty member for the University of Scouting, and a 3-time staff member for Wood Badge, where I'm a proud member of the Buffalo patrol.

 

I served on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Church Security.  In that capacity, I was able to assist, teach, and train churches across the country on security matters.

 

In addition to being a business attorney, I am also an entrepreneur and business owner.  I have owned a number of automotive repair shops, including an entire chain of shops in Colorado.  I currently own a security guard company.  I own a firearms training company.  I own a photography company.  I own a movie production company, and am currently in the middle of producing a full-length feature film.  I enjoy playing the guitar.

 

Most importantly, I am the husband of a beautiful wife, and the proud father of 4 fantastic children.

Honest and Accurate!
Adam was very compassionate and understanding of my situation and had unexpected real world knowledge of my field. Not only did Adam hear out my pleas for help, but helped diffuse some of my worries and helped me find a clear cut path that for now, did not require the use of his services. Hopefully it stays that way! I appreciate Adam's professionalism as well as his honesty and willingness to not simply take my money because he easily could have. Thanks Adam!

Superb Lawyer
If you are in need of legal representation or advice for your business, look no further. In my dealings with Adam I have come to be extremely impressed by his intellect, creativity, and attention to detail. He is second to none.

Amazing Attorney
Adam Weitzel has been our church attorney since 2008. We know how difficult it is to find a good, reputable attorney that is honest, fair, and just in all of their dealings. The courts seem to hold favor with Mr. Weitzel because of his honesty and high integrity.The Golden Rule of "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" is how he conducts his life and practice. We give our attorney Five Stars.

A Lawyer You Can Trust.
Adam has been representing me personally and my company for almost 2 years now. He always gives sound legal advice. We have drafted many contracts and he has fought 2 other issues for us as well. He is a man of honesty and trust.

Corporate Work
Adam has done much coporate work for me in the past, and has always delivered a top notch product. His main consideration is to protect his client, and he achieves this with his excellent knowledge and attention to detail. He also lisitens to his clients, a very important characteristic which is getting harder to find these days. One thing also that I must mention is that Adam , even though he does top notch work, is not out to gouge me. His rates are very fair, and I can speak to him anytime without feeling like I am on the clock. Having dealt with many attorneys over the years, this is a very good feeling. I highly recommend him.
