Good Law | Bad Law #150 - From Lies to Truth: A Conversation about Redemption w/ Dr. Adam Litwin

Have you ever wanted something so badly in your life that you would do anything to get it?


Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast, Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by Dr. Adam Litwin to delve deep into this question, and more. A little different than our normal episode, today our guest shares his own, very personal story – one of tenacity, depression, passion, and redemption. Dr. Litwin shares his own journey of impersonating a doctor at UCLA Medical center in the late 1990s to realizing his life-long dream of becoming a physician decades later.


With an early introduction to medicine, Adam became infatuated with being a doctor. As a young kid, Adam found his love of medicine while watching his grandfather work as a podiatrist. In high school, Adam spent his time reading massive medical textbooks and doing anything he could to further his chances of medical school. After graduating, he started college as a pre-med student. Adam seemed to have planned out his life according to his dreams, but after one incredible experience of interning at a hospital, Adam’s life changed.  


Listen in to hear Adam tell his own story. Find out how a bright young man with a promising future found himself serving jail time after impersonating a doctor at a top-tier med school, and ultimately how he found his way to fulfilling his dreams. A fascinating and encouraging episode, stay tuned!
