I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Adam in The Manely Firm's Justice Cafe, and I could not ask for a better mentor. He is extremely knowledgeable, hard working and tenacious, with a caring spirit. Adam's courtroom demeanor is impressive; he is thoughtful and powerful in what he says and how he says it.
