Jeff exemplifies the best in a trial lawyer; knowledge of the law, intense preparation and the skills to relate to juries. He is admired and respected by Judges. Always available to clients ( and fellow attorneys),
Jeff is reliable, helpful and simply a great guy. I endorse him wholeheartedly.

Personal Injury law suits can be a highly emotional protracted process adding to the physical pain of an already serious injury. You want an attorney that actually understands this, looks out for you, and doesn't treat you or your condition as another $$$ sign. Jeff will make recommendations and decisions based on your best interests not his. Don't hire an attorney looking out for him/her self and not you. As a retired law enforcement professional is was refreshing to know that attorneys like Jeff are actually out there and represent you as a person and not just another number. Jeff is an attorney I trust and the first person I call in any legal matter to get advice or recommendations...

Would I recommend, Jeff? I already have, and plan on doing so again and again. Jeff knows his business, and it is abundantly clear that he is working for you. A stand out value of his, is managing expectations. He won't promise anything he can't deliver on. As a client, I want real information and not fantasy talk of a windfall settlement. Because of this, you will never feel like he is SELLING you on his services. You are getting a top notch attorney, who will maximize your situation for the best results possible. Hire him.

I endorse Jeffrey Adams. I have been reading his responses on Avvo for months. We both answer questions in the same areas of law. His answers are wonderful. He has a true sense of the law and cases. He can spot the issues and knows the elements of all types of personal injury cases. Besides all that he is a cat lover and has a great sense of humor. A lawyer that any client would want on their side.
