Through a referral I met Bill Adams who worked on my race and age discrimination case for about three years, because of the delay tactics of my former employer a large financial institution. Rather than try to change their policy of race discrimination the bank tried to say I was a non performer. This discrimination was degrading to me daily for years at the bank. It was apparent to me that I needed an attorney that could challenge a large institution and win. This major financial institution hired two of the most powerful law firms available to fight against me and my attorney Bill Adams. Mr. Adams was always confident, extreemly intelligent and seemed to always know what was coming next. Mr. Adams and his staff represented me against no less than ten lawyers, maybe more, hired from two different law firms and was able to not only bring out the terrible things I was going through but also through deposition after deposition proved that there was ovious racial and age discrimination happening through out the department I work in. Mr. Adams is an "All Star Performer" in my book a man who is honest and totally committed to his clients as he was to me and he was also able to obtain an out of court settlement that even some other attorneys he knew thought would never happen. Hire Mr. Adams if you are looking for a great and honest attorney.

Bill Adams as our corporate attorney has bailed us out in several cases over the past three years. In one of the cases Bill had less than 24 hours to prepare and defend a TRO against us. Bill and his staff were able to respond so well that the federal judge pretty much threw out the case. Bill made the other attorney look totally incompetent. Bill's dedication to his clients and his integrity is commendable. We know he has won the champion of justice award in San Francisco, its richly deserved. He came came through for us when we most needed him.

Mr. Adams and company provided me with the best legal councel I could ever hope or dream to secure compensation for my employer terminating me as I was doing my job successfully as a vetran salesperson with a 30 year bond with specific major customers in industrial power transmission equipment sales. Then I was told by the Vice President that I was fired because of what my doctors had told them. Mr. Adams with his photomagical memory was a genious to read, recall, and find the most important facts from literally 300 pounds of evedence/files made me feel very comfortable at all stages of our lengthy case. Mr. Adams was able to secure a healthy mid six digit compensation to win our case as we settled out of court.

I was reaching retirement age and wanted to promote a long time associate to president/CEO of our small consulting firm. I needed an employment agreement that would reward her appropriately and also provide incentives for her retention. I was referred to Bill Adams by a trusted business friend who had used him in the past.
From my first meeting with Bill I knew I was in the right hands -- he asked the right questions, raised issues I hadn't considered, and proposed terms for the agreement that accomplished exactly what I wanted. To kick the process off Bill met with me and my accountant, and from that point on Bill drove the process working closely and directly with both of us. When the Agreement was completed and presented to my colleague for her review she passed the document by her personal attorney who commented on how complete it was and how well it had been structured. In fact little was changed and it was executed by both parties.
Bill was knowledgeable, prompts and right on target. I would give him an A+ and my unqualified recommendation. I was very fortunate to have found him.

I would not hesitate to recommend William F. Adams to anyone needing legal respresentation. Bill and his team are top notch - they are professional, have a thorough understanding of the legal system and know and can explain in layman's terms the ins and outs of the judicial system. I certainly felt I was in good hands when I engaged William's services!

Bill has been my attorney for over 12 years, handling a myriad of legal needs for my firm and me. He has a unique ability to quickly analyze (sometimes massively) complex business deals or problems, identify and focus on the most critical legal landmines from multiple dimensions, and craft elegant, winning legal solutions for my firm and me. An unwavering advocate and champion, his brilliant negotiating skill and strategic thinking are a valued firm asset. As important, Bill is a joy to work with - passionate about the business and people issues along with the legal issues, and imbued with a keen sense of humor that also educates and diffuses difficult situations.

Bill has helped me navigate the creation of my small consulting firm and, since, to deal with all legal issues that we have come across for over 10 years (largely review/revision of contracts although we come across a smattering of a broad range of other law issues as well). He handles all with more than professionalism; I feel as though he has a real concern for me and my business and I think of him as my "in-house counsel. He's a man of integrity and knowledge, with a quick grasp of issues from a business as well as a legal standpoint. He has always made time to get my items done, even if it dips into "off-hours". The dedication of Bill and his staff to his clients and their consistently positive attitude are added benefits.

I would recommend Bill to my closest friends and family anyday. He worked on a very difficult and lengthly case for me and through out the duration I always felt that he had my best interests at heart. He is a highly intellegent, professional attorney and I would trust him again if I ever needed legal help. He fought for a positive outcome in my case and exceeded my expectations!
