    I worked with Adam for several years, initially when he was a paralegal and law student, and later as a fellow attorney. Adam is extremely hard working, intelligent and professional. Colleagues enjoy working with him and clients are consistently pleased with the advice he provides. He is extremely knowledgable in real estate matters, but has handled many diverse cases over the years in different areas of law. I endorse this lawyer and would recommend his services.

    Adam and I attended law school together, and worked at the same firm through school and after graduation. Adam is an outstanding attorney. He has a calm and conscientious demeanor coupled with unshakable integrity. Over the years, I have observed Adam’s keen ability to find the best approach to an issue. I happily recommend Adam whenever I am asked to suggest a real estate and/or business attorney. I look forward to watching his fantastic career progress!
