Lynne C Adams

Osborn Maledon PA

Lynne Adams is a partner at Osborn Maledon. She focuses her practice on education law, and she primarily represents community colleges, charter schools, school districts, public and private universities and colleges and other public entities. She provides her education clients with on-going legal advice, including compliance with all aspects of school law, Arizona's Open Meeting Law, public records, FERPA issues, and policy guidance. She also represents them in investigations, litigation, administrative matters, and regulatory appeals.

Ms. Adams is a 1987 graduate of Columbia University Law School, and after clerking for Justice Christine Durham on the Utah Supreme Court, she moved to Phoenix, where she worked for the law firm of Brown & Bain (now Perkins Coie). She worked for the Arizona Attorney General’s Office from 1999-2003, serving as Chief Counsel for the Education and Health Section under Attorney General Janet Napolitano. After leaving the Attorney General’s Office, she joined Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie. She joined Osborn Maledon in 2012.

Judge Bruce R. Cohen (one of today’s panelists) and Ms. Adams share at least one thing in common—their love of game shows. Ms. Adams was a contestant on The Price Is Right in November 2012, winning the Showcase Showdown. Her daughter created a gif that shows her jumping around and screaming, which is still embarrassing after all these years.
