    Adam is one of the most knowledgeable attorneys on Somerville zoning. He has appeared in front of the Zoning Board and been successful on his many complicated projects. I highly recommend Adam's guidance on permitting and zoning projects.

    I have worked opposite Attorney Dash on a number of matters over the years and have always found him to be diligent, responsive and respectful while strongly advocating for his clients. I have recommended him to others and will again.
