Adam Mueller brings a diverse background to Haddon, Morgan and Foreman, having worked on civil and criminal cases with a particular focus on appellate criminal practice.

Adam graduated from Tufts University, where he received his B.A. in history. He then obtained his J.D. from Boston College Law School. After graduating from law school, Adam spent two years as a judicial law clerk, first for Judge Carlos F. Lucero of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Denver, Colorado, and then for Judge F. Dennis Saylor, IV, of the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.

Following his clerkships, Adam worked for six years as a deputy state public defender in the Appellate Division of the Colorado Public Defender’s Office. In that time, Adam represented clients facing a broad array of charges, from drug possession and distribution, to sexual assault and homicide. Adam used his time in the Appellate Division to hone his writing and oral advocacy skills. As a public defender, Adam regularly presented oral argument before the Colorado Supreme Court and the Colorado Court of Appeals.

Outside of his legal practice, Adam is an avid soccer fan and longtime soccer referee. He has been a certified referee for the United States Soccer Federation since he was eleven years old, and has most recently concentrated his refereeing on the collegiate game. Adam has refereed in the Division II NCAA tournament five years in a row.

Adam spends his free time with his wife and young daughter.
