Professional, Knowledgeable and Responsive
Mr. Eggleston is a pleasure to speak with and provides results quickly and efficiently. I can’t thank him enough for taking me on as a client. I had been trying to resolve a legal issues for over two years with a couple of attorneys in the area when a friend recommended Mr. Eggleston. From the moment I contacted him I felt as if I was his only client. He provided me with consistent updates and made sure I understood each step of the process. He was able to resolve my issues quickly and throughout the process was very professional. I have since recommended him to colleagues of mine who all have had the same experience.

Who else but Adam?
From the start, Adam made me feel comforted, hopeful and optimistic in an otherwise miserable and terrifying experience. I can't imagine working with anyone else, the perfect combination of personable and professional. He is determined and extremely knowledgeable of the law. I was right to trust him with my life because he went above and beyond for me. Adam's the best of the best and I recommend him 100%! Thank you so much Adam!

Adam is everything you would hope for from a DWI layer - understanding, professional, creative, astute, diligent, informative, etc. Due to its complexity, my case lasted roughly 18 months from the date of the offense. Adam stayed interested and energized from start to finish, resulting in a full dismissal of the BAC report and other pertinent details, which resulted in a minor traffic infraction at the close. The success would not have been possible without him in my corner. He knows his stuff, and presents it flawlessly in the court room. I could not have been more pleased with my overall experience with Adam and obviously the outcome of my case!

Professional & gets results
I was referred to Adam by a friend who he successfully represented. I was apprehensive in hiring an attorney because I knew I needed to hire the right one because like many, i had alot at stake. Adam was professional, flexible and managed to put my mind at ease. Fortunately for us both, we had a successful outcome. I wouldn't refer anyone to anyone but Adam.

Adam is the best lawyer in the business. He worked hard to get me the best deal he could . He got the felony dropped to a misdemeanor which was a key for me . I will recommend him to anyone.

Best DWI representation
Mr. Eggleston was not only extremely professional, but I was very much a part of the decision making in every aspect with my case. Anyone who retains his services will not be disappointed. If you are unfortunate enough to be charged with a DWI, afford Mr. Eggleston the same respect he affords to you. He approaches each case with unmatched devotion that you will not regret.

Though not privy to aviation law, he went above and beyond in educating himself so as to ensure minimal impact to my progress within my chosen profession. His tenacity and persistence led to a most amicable outcome considering my circumstances.

smart and witty young lawyer
Adam got me the best possible outcome both with my dmv hearings and with the court system. He always gave me control on which way i wanted to go with options. Very easy to contact and a smart lawyer. I felt comfortable with him representing me. Well worth my money anyday.

Great Attorney
Adam was able to bring my Felony DWI charges to a traffic infraction. Due to his and his teams knowledge of the courts, the laws and the DWI testing procedures employed in upstate NY. Adam was also very knowledgeable in what mistakes and biases that are held, when the police deal with certain members of the public they are supposed to be protecting.

professional with a personality
I was very pleased to work with Mr. Eggleston. He spoke to me before my court appearance explaining what may or may not occur. After my plea deal he explained what it meant, and what my next steps were. He was very professional and had a great personality.

I recommend this attorney/the law firm of Anelli Xavier DWI Defense Attorneys
My attorney was extremely professional, as well as friendly. His enthusiasm, availability and knowledge about my situation was encouraging, and I was pleased with the outcome. This firm also made it possible for me to arrange a payment plan, which is not an option through many other attorneys/firms. They were very thorough, and kept me posted throughout the process. Thanks Adam (and the rest of the Anelli Xavier defense team who assisted in my case)!

DUI and DWI Attorney | Apr 23
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've know Adam for the past six years. He is a tireless and aggressive advocate for his clients. Put simply Adam is in the highest echelon of DWI attorneys in the Capitol Region."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Jul 14
Relationship: Co-worker
"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Adam Eggleston to anyone charged with a DWI in New York State. Mr. Eggleston brings a wealth of DWI expertise to each and every case. He is a knowledgeable attorney and is a hardworking, strong and zealous advocate for his clients. Adam is an excellent trial attorney and a skilled negotiator. Anyone charged with a DWI will be well represented if they have Mr. Eggleston standing next to them in court."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Feb 17
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Eggleston is a fine young lawyer who combines a great deal of intelligence with a real passion to assist his clients. I have seen him in court and he handles himself with ease and professional courtesy. He relates well with his clients, with law enforcement, and with the judges and court staff. Anyone charged with a DWI in New York's Capitol District will be well-served to seek him out."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Apr 02
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"Adam Eggleston has progressed at such a pace that he could be confused with a much more senior lawyer. He works day and night on behalf of his clients, consuming statutes, case law and the cutting edge defenses in his field. He has a charming way with clients, however he can become an aggressive advocate as soon as he steps into the court room. Mr. Eggleston has experience in both criminal prosecutions and defense. We are fortunate to have him work with us at Anelli Xavier but not nearly as fortunate as the clients he represents."
