Adeboro is not a political neophyte in the Ondo State Political terrain. His wealth of experience even as a young man eminently qualifies him to man any position in Nigeria or anywhere in the world. Adeboro prefers to refer to himself as an unassuming human rights crusader. This is evidenced by his desire to always be at the forefront of the political liberation of his people or wherever he finds himself and this desire has prompted him to contest in the general election of 2007 to represent Akoko North West Constituency II in the Ondo State House Assembly under the political hegemony of Action Congress (AC) which he lost to PDP. He is a member of the Nigeria Bar Association, UNITY BAR, Abuja where he has held sensitive positions. He is equally a member of the International Bar Association. Adeboro is currently the Principal Partner in Adamson Adeboro & Co, Maitama, -Abuja (AA & CO): one of the most sought after legal institutions in Nigeria, offering legal services to clients and intermediaries across the nation as a fast-growing commercial and corporate law firm in Nigeria. He has also enjoyed appointments as Secretary, NBA Continuous Legal Education (2010-2013); and Member of Legal Practitioners’ Disciplinary Committee (2012 till Date).
