Monday, it was hard not to read a headline that said "David Cook's older brother" had died. This man had a name. It was Adam. Adam Cook. Adam was more than an American Idol's brother. He was an attorney, a husband to his wife Kendra and a father to two children. Adam was only 37. He fought brain cancer for over 10 years. Recently, it had spread to his spine. While I never tried a jury trial with Adam on the other side, on the occasions that I did oppose Adam in deposition or mediation, I always found him to be a strong but civil advocate for his client. A gentleman, an attorney and a man worthy of his own story instead of a mere footnote.
