Areas of Practice


Family law is a special area of concentration for attorney Adam Burkemper. Adam is an attorney adviser to the Lincoln County Child Support Court, and he has represented fathers and mothers in nearly every kind of family law case. Adam has litigated divorce cases against some of the biggest and most well-known Family Law firms in St. Louis, St. Charles, and Troy. Adam has experience handling the most contentious and emotional of family cases along with cases involving high net-worth families. While Adam has experience successfully fighting the biggest and most intimidating law firms, he is able to offer this skill at a power price point, as he has chosen to keep his office in the area he was raised in rather than move it into St. Charles or St. Louis where his fees would have to accommodate higher urban expenses.
