This lil chump took 3000$ from me. I have all the proof in the world if anybody wants it. To boil it down as to what he did, he took 3000$ and told me to go pay Dr. Kenneth Bouillion to set up an evaluation for a future court date so I could get more custody of my daughter. The plan was to use the evaluation and show Im not as bad as the baby momma suggested I was. I took his recommendation. Out of the $3000 I gave him he told me to take part of it and pay Dr Kenneth. So I did.
After many months waiting for the letter of recommendation, Dr Kenneth mailed it to Mr Youngs office. I picked up the letter at Mr Youngs office from his secretary, I walked to my car, in the parking lot of his office and proceeded to open the envelope. I found not just the letter of recommendation to the court from Dr Kenneth but also a separate letter to the court from Adam Young. Dr Kenneth recommended that indeed deserve more custody and that Im not as bad as baby momma suggested I am. This was great news until I read the other letter Adam sent to the court which stated he is requesting, on my behalf, to withdraw as my lawyer.
Right when I had the chance to gain more custody he quits and quits without my consent or even my knowledge! You see. Mr Young sent that letter to the court BEFORE I ever saw that letter or even knew he planned to send it! That request was not my idea at all but his. Basically what Mr young did was not just wrong but also illegal because he lied to the court and also stole all my money. I never got any notice written or verbal prior to him sending this letter to the court.
There are certain rules lawyers have to follow and he broke it! Keep in mind the whole purpose of paying this chump was to gain custody and just when I could have done so he quits! I had the state bar question him and he lied to them also, saying I made an agreement with him to quit. Um no I did not! In fact I have all the proof any one needs to show otherwise. Emails. Phone calls.... After paying this chump 3000$ both me and my kid or suffering from his theft and we are both very depressed about it. Can you imagine having to tell your kid that someone took the money that could have helped her see her daddy more?
To sum it um. DONT hire this man. And Adam when you read this, feel the burn. You know who I am.

I met with two other lawyers in Lafayette before I decided to hire Adam to handle my custody case. While all three lawyers claimed to specialize in family law, Adam was the only one that was able to provide specific answers to all of my questions. On top of that, his rates were very reasonable in comparison.
Adam helped me gain sole custody of my children. I am forever thankful for his efforts.
He and his staff were extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Any time that I called with a question, I would get a response from him personally within a few hours, if not immediately. I particularly appreciated this considering that in my past experience with another lawyer, I would only receive communications from a paralegal or secretary.
I highly recommend hiring Adam for your legal needs. He and his staff are organized, responsive, and overall very knowledgeable of the law. Adam will zealously fight for you to get what you want.

Adam did an excellent job for me in my divorce. He is very intellegent and thought of things I had never considered. I thought his rates were a huge bargain for the work and personal attention he gave.

I had many lawyers in my career, Adam is by far the best one I have ever had.
