In 2012 Adam was elected to the Arizona House of Representatives. While a member of the Arizona State Legislature, he served as Vice-Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. Adam sat on the Appropriations and Commerce Committees as well as the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.
In the legislature, Adam gained notoriety for his conservative leadership. In 2013, he was ranked #1 in the entire Arizona Legislature by Americans for Prosperity’s Legislative Scorecard. His record further earned him the "Hero of the Taxpayer" award, the "Champion of Small Business" award by the National Federation of Independent Businesses, and the "Friend of the Family Award" by the Arizona Family Project.
In the private sector, Adam joined powerhouse litigator, Joshua Wagner and formed Wagner and Kwasman, PLLC. Wagner and Kwasman has gained notoriety for being a leading civil litigation and personal injury firm in Arizona.
Adam enjoys elk, turkey and other big and small game hunting. He can’t wait to teach his children how to field dress an elk and call-in a boss-tom gobbler. The Kwasmans are proud and active members of their synagogue, Congregation Beth Tefillah.
Orit (Sklar) Kwasman is married to Adam Kwasman, the mother of two incredible children, Zev and Seri, a proud transplant to Arizona, and a communications, event, and fundraising consultant. She is the former Development Director at the Faith & Freedom Coalition, America’s largest and most influential organization dedicated to educating and mobilizing people of faith for effective civic action. A political writer and commentator, Orit has contributed to leading publications and provided election and political analysis for CNN's Newsroom, a wide range of radio programs, and The Georgia Gang, Fox 5 Atlanta's weekly political television show. She is a frequent featured speaker at conservative conferences and events, and has been particularly involved in issues related to culture, millennials and Israel. She is known nationwide for her advancement of First Amendment rights and academic freedom on American university campuses, and is the co-recipient of the 2009 Ronald Reagan Award from the American Conservative Union. As a college student, Orit successfully challenged Georgia Tech's unconstitutional policies restricting free speech and infringing on religious liberty, filing suit in federal court and enduring an unprecedented level of media malpractice and malicious threats. A native of Mount Vernon, New York, she graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2007, receiving a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering. Orit loves to read historical nonfiction, cook and home-school Zev and Seri.
Zev is a proud Scottsdale native who was born in 2016. His favorite activities include pretending to be a dinosaur, playing (mini) golf, swimming, and eating ice cream. If asked, he will show you just how high he can jump.
Another proud Scottsdale native and named after Orit’s beloved, holocaust-survivor grandmother, Seri celebrated her first birthday this past January. Seri recently discovered bipedal locomotion and loves her bath time.
