Connor R. Adamson, Of Counsel

Connor was born and raised in central Maryland outside of Baltimore, and was also partially raised in West Virginia. His desire to be a lawyer sprung up at a young age and he began practicing his public speaking skills early in life, participating in theater as well as winning a Maryland Catholic Forensics League State Championship in Extemporaneous Speech. He graduated cum laude from West Virginia University’s Reed College of Media with a degree in Strategic Communications with an emphasis in Advertising and a minor in Political Science. He attended law school at Villanova University at the Charles Widger School of Law graduating cum laude with a Concentration in Litigation & Dispute Resolution.

He was an Executive Leader during his capstone project at WVU, helping to coordinate the rebranding of Grafton, West Virginia alongside his colleagues. He also interned with the West Virginia State Legislature working closely alongside state delegates and graduated with three President’s List honors. While attending law school, he was an intern for Judge Jacquelyn Frazier-Lyde of Philadelphia Municipal Court and the Philadelphia Public Defenders Office. He was also a member of the Villanova Environmental Law Journal and served as a Managing Editor of Student Works. His article, Lowering the Bar?: Reevaluating the Diligent Prosecution Bar in Light of the Gold King Mine Spill, was published in the 2019 edition of the journal. Connor also competed in Villanova’s Moot Court Competition in 2018.

Connor joined GNQ as an associate in 2019 following his graduation from law school, due to a deep desire to move to the state of Texas. He works in both trial litigation support and appellate work. Connor is a diligent legal researcher, writer, and orator committed to bringing the best possible results to his clients. He views the law as a service profession first and foremost and is dedicated to serving his client’s needs and bringing them the best results possible. He believes in bringing a personal touch whenever possible and the power of a strong lawyer-client relationship.

When not working in the law office, Connor is an avid consumer of cinema, and writes about film professionally as a paid critic. He also believes strongly in the importance of volunteering in the community and giving back. To that end, Connor volunteers with a local youth group and has also gone on seven mission trips throughout his life.
