Adam is one of my favorites even though we were on opposite sides of a complex, multi-faceted, and hotly contested litigation involving a multi-million dollar property in Laguna Beach. His intelligence and aggressiveness made him a formidable and effective adversary; at the same time, he earned my trust and respect through demonstrated integrity and a creative approach to seemingly intractable problems. He certainly earned his fees, and I would refer potential clients to him without hesitation.
