Adam Thompson is the best attorney period!!
When I met Adam Thompson, I knew right away that he was a class act! He is a brilliant attorney, fights for his clients and what he believes in with 110% passion and effort! His knowledge as it pertains to the law (criminal, civil) is simply unmatched! Having had the pleasure of working with Adam Thompson as an on air news contributor, I am convinced he's simply in a class by himself! I worked with him when I was a journalist at CNN and now have had the pleasure of having him as a guest in my own broadcast studio ( as a frequent guest commentator on HLN's Jane Velez Mitchell's Show, Issues. Aside from being a brilliant attorney, this guy has moxie and class! It's no wonder that he is also a syndicated radio talk show host. If I were a network news executive, Adam Thompson would definitely be on my "short list" of attorneys to hire as a legal analyst!

Adam always wins!!!
Adam saved my life!! I was in danger of being falsely convicted because of poor representation from my first attorney. Adam stepped in and got down to business. He is super smart and understands the most important aspects of working a case. More importantly, Adam took the time to make me feel comfortable with the process and understand me. I couldn't imagine any other attorney closing my case with such success!!

Adam Thompson is the best. He handled a case for me way back in the early 2000 and won it with his dedication, years of experience and his overall mannerism and personality. Adam has a way of really "listening: which a lot of attorneys missed out on or they're just overwork where their not able to RETAIN THE INFORMATION you give them. This puts clients in a bad way. Adam proves he listens to your case when he goes over with you what he expects you to do in your part in order to win your case. Also a lot of attorneys do not go ABOVE AND BEYOND. My experience is that you have to be very careful with attorneys because the problem is that many are only doing your case to what they know they are not for your best interest finding laws to help with you SPECIFIC CASE. FOR THIS REASON I RECOMMEND ADAM TO YOU BECAUSE HE IS NOT GOD - HE CANNOT TELL YOU THE END RESULT BUT HE GIVES HIS ALL. Adam Thomson GOES IN WITH DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN, HIS YEARS OF LEGAL EXPERIENCE OF LAW, PREPARATION, HIS WON CASES EXPERTISE ON THE LAW HOW HE WON THEM ADDING THEM TO HIS FUTURE CLIENTS NEEDS AS WELL. ADAM THOMPSON IS A CONFIDENT LAWYER TOO. HE KNOWS HIS JOB. MOST OF THESE ATTORNEYS AREN'T SURE ABOUT ANYTHING EXCEPT GIVING YOU WHAT THEY BELIEVE THE JUDGE WILL OR WILL NOT APPROVE. YOU NEED AN ATTORNEY WHO IS NOT AFRAID TO FIGHT FOR YOU. THAT'S ADAM THOMPSON.. I GIVE ADAM THOMPSON THE HIGHEST RECOMENDATION. 10+, 10+ 10+

Absolutely Walks The Talk!
When I was falsely accused, Mr. Adam M.Thompson saved my life, and had my case dismissed. when he first walked Into the courtroom on that day, the look on the Prosecutor and the District attorney's face was priceless. It was worth every single penny for me to have witnessed this, and then some. If you want a REAL chance at winning your case, I urge you to call Mr. Thompson right away. You will be so glad and relieved that you did because he absolutely walks the talk. Thank you Adam Thompson! Sincerely Daniel P.

Personal Injury
I contacted the law office of Adam M. Thompson after slipping on a sidewalk that was not properly cleaned, which resulted in my breaking my foot. I was unable to drive, work or care for my family for about a month. Mr. Thompson left no stone unturned (from the homeowners, city, and insurance company) to award me compensation for money lost during the time I couldn't work while my foot healed. He took the time to review my case with me personally, and made me feel secure when we went to court. He articulated my injury very well and his experience was clear. I would recommend Attorney Adam M. Thompson, he is a good quality individual and attorney.

Personal Injury Knee Injury
Mr. Thompson walked me through my case (personal injury) and arranged for doctor visit for evaluation of injury and subsequent therapy sessions. He kept me informed of my status and explained the entire process so that there would be no surprises. I was prepared for depositions and eventually the case was settled and all issues were resolved favorably.

If you are looking for a skilled, knowledgeable, caring yet aggressive defense in legal matters then Adam Thompson is your answer. I have known Mr. Thompson for seven years needing his assistance on two different occasions for a family member and then myself. My experiences with Mr. Thompson have been completely positive. Adam's handling is heartfelt (he treats you like family) and your in good hands legally since he is very proactive and hardworking on your case. I feel very confident and reassured having him as my attorney. He embodies all the good qualities that you would look for in an attorney but more importantly in a human being.

Absolutely the best!
Adam had be retained by a close friend many years ago and I had always heard him described as a "powerhouse"! Recently, I had an unexpected situation and thankfully we still 25 yrs later had Adams number. It was a holiday weekend and he was out of state but he quickly took it over and not only advised me but went beyond by doing everything possible to minimize the situation immediately. He kept me informed, explaining next steps and his expectation. He handled it so professionally and I honestly don't think the outcome would have been what it was without him. I am very grateful and highly recommend him.
