Sam Adam was 74 as of June 1, 2010, according to this Tribune article.
Sam Adam Sr., 74, is a legend at "26th and Cal," where he has earned a reputation over decades as a crafty veteran of the Cook County criminal-defense bar. He is perhaps best known for his fiery, though ultimately futile, defense of former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds on sex charges.
But it is Adam's 37-year-old son who is expected to do most of the talking for Blagojevich in court. The younger Adam came into his own as a courtroom presence in the 2008 Cook County trial of R&B superstar R. Kelly, who was acquitted of child pornography charges.
