Adam Skeel is an Associate Attorney at Deno Millikan Law Firm. Adam grew up near Shoreline, and his roots run deep across Western Washington. With family North, South, and on both sides of Puget Sound, Adam knows and cares deeply for the communities around the Salish Sea and especially right here in Snohomish County, where much of his family lives and works.
Adam graduated from the University of Washington in 2007 with a degree in Anthropology. He was drawn to social sciences because of his appreciation of people from all cultures. From 2008 to 2010, Adam worked at Microsoft as part of the team that developed the Bing search engine. However, he still had a desire to do more to help his community, which led him to the practice of law.
Adam attended the University of Maine Law School from 2010 to 2013. While in school, he was president of the Maine Association for Law and Innovation. Adam also assisted many local business owners and other individuals though the University’s Intellectual Property clinic. For two summers, Adam interned at the Neilson Group Law Firm, where he helped prepare a wrongful death case against the State of Maine. Although he appreciated his time in Maine, Adam decided to return to the Pacific Northwest after graduation.
Adam enjoys assisting people in his local community in areas such as family law, employment, and business law. Prior to working at Deno Millikan, he volunteered at the Hanford Challenge, an organization dedicated to assisting workers at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation who have been wrongfully penalized for reporting safety concerns, otherwise known as “Whistleblowers”.
