After almost 3 years after getting arrested for being at the wrong place at the wrong time I get served papers that my court date is coming up and they send out this plead if I plead guilty that they would give me let's just say I really really bad deal. So right then I looked up Adam and his reviews and called to talk with him and he assured me right away that he could help me with my case and most likely get it dismissed. I had been so upset for days thinking of the outcome of the whole ordeal but Adam just after 2 days had already gotten my case dismissed!!! He is a lifesaver. I am so grateful to him and his office

Posting on behalf of my husband Seth. He got into some trouble about 4 years ago, the case went cold until recently. My husband had completely turned his life around, started a business and no longer in any trouble.
