Fighter and advocate

Adam Milasincic is a Spring Branch resident often recognized as one of the most highly rated, hardest-working trial lawyers in Texas. His cases range from representing the families of people killed at work to defending animal-rights advocates to helping energy companies resolve their contract disputes.

Never afraid of a tough fight, Adam has beaten some of the biggest companies in Texas on behalf of families, small businesses, and many of Houston’s top employers.

He earned the #1 score when he took the Texas bar exam and has been named by Texas Super Lawyers, Chambers USA, and Texas Lawyer as a “Rising Star,” “Associate to Watch,” and “Lawyer on the Rise.” Since 2015, Adam has ranked among the top 2.5 percent of Texas lawyers under 40 according to Texas Super Lawyers, and he was featured on the cover of the 2016 edition.

Hard worker with proud immigrant roots

“Milasincic” is a Croatian name that reflects Adam’s roots as the descendant of an immigrant steelworker who raised nine kids by working seven-day weeks at a mill outside of Pittsburgh.

Like the rest of his family, Adam started young, having held jobs since age 11 except for his three years in law school. Before becoming a lawyer, Adam’s jobs included working as a cashier and DJ at the family’s roller-skating business and working summers as a flooring installer alongside his dad.

Adam earned his undergraduate degree in journalism, worked a short time as a small-town newspaper reporter, and then became the communications director at a REALTORS® Association, where he advocated for property-tax reform and homeownership.

In law school, Adam earned the highest grades in his first-year class, interned for a federal judge in Houston, and helped write winning briefs that were presented to the United States Supreme Court.

Work ethic and effective advocacy skills are assets that too many politicians don’t have. In 2017, Adam decided to put his experience to work fighting for all members of our Northwest Houston community.

After seeing his career-politician opponent vote to allow immigration papers checks of women in domestic-violence shelters, Adam had enough, realizing that extremist politicians won’t stop trying to divide our communities until everyday citizens step up and force the politicians to put the focus back on basic issues like funding our schools, protecting our environment, improving flood control, and fixing Texas’ worst-in-the-nation healthcare affordability problems.
