    I have worked with Adam Long on several matters. I have always been impressed with his ability to help his clients accomplish their goals. Adam truly understands the 'big picture' and thinks globally. These skills are essential to helping a client navigate any situation to reach the most favorable possible resolution.

    I've had the opportunity to work with Adam on the same side of cases, as well as opposed to him in several cases. He is smart, diligent, and efficient. Adam is also practical as a lawyer - he is interested in getting to the bottom line and solving a problem, rather than racking up fees. That last point is probably one of the most important qualities in a lawyer, and, frankly, it's somewhat rare. While many attorneys think in terms of raging battles and legal disputes, Adam thinks in terms of getting to an efficient solution to a real-world problem.
