Retained Mr. Adshead to negotiate and formulate a complicated family estate. He was pro-active in foreseeing difficulties with competing claims, as well as inheritance taxes and fees. He was patient and thorough, and took the time to make this a personal experience and not just a formality. He explained things in a way which made it easy to clear up any confusion and problems. He was very efficient in formulating a final will that satisfied the estate, and was very good at communicating with me along the way. Mr. Adshead is a true professional; experienced, highly knowledgeable, conscientious and responsive. It was very reassuring to have him on my case through a difficult task.

Bob is committed to vigorously protecting the rights of victims harmed by others' wrongdoing. He enjoys a wealth of experience as a highly skilled trial lawyer. Equally importantly, he unfailingly demonstrates both a keen compassion toward his clients and impeccable ethical standards . Bob is as well one of the smartest attorneys I have met. He has the wit, instincts and savviness to know when and how to resolve a difficult legal matter, and how to succeed at trial. He is a leader amongst the trial attorneys in Norristown and Philly not only because he is well liked but also because of his bravado in court, and his repeated successful results for his clients !!!!!

After I was arrested, I fired my PSEA attorney and hired Bob Adshead. That was the beginning of my long and successful journey to freedom from a false accusation. A student I had taught in 1985 came forward in 1998 and accused me of molesting and raping her over twenty times in my classroom and various other places back then. I was arrested, thrown in jail, and released on $150,000 bail. Bob then met with me and discovered that I had 'bombshell' evidence that would show how this so-called victim would be exposed for the liar she was. All through that spring and summer whenever he would see the prosecutor at our Montgomery County Courthouse he would tell her we had evidence that would blow this entire accusation 'out of the water'. Worried about the outcome of the case, she finally called in my accuser and asked her point blank what this evidence we had, was. My accuser did not know but started to make more accusations against me which ended up by her adding more so-called facts to the original accusation which contradicted what she had originally stated before my arrest. That was when the district attorney of our county called Bob and told him the case was being dropped. Bob then told me that the reason the county dropped the case was because they knew it could not be won and that loss would make the d.a.'s office admit all the mistakes they made in my case. After my exoneration DatelineNBC wanted to do the story but I was going to refuse to cooperate but Bob said I should do it because he knew that Dateline would contact my accuser and he didn't want just her side to be shown on national television. I did the interview and thanks to Bob's advice, the Dateline documentary clearly showed my innocence to all who viewed the show (December, 1998). If it wasn't for Bob perseverance in confronting the prosecutor and in knowing the Pennsylvania law concerning 'recovered memories' I could have faced a trial and unknown consequences with a judge who had been handpicked by the d.a. Bob Adshead is a criminal attorney I would recommend to anyone. He was even going to sue the NEA when they refused to pay me for my legal defense (they finally did so at his urging). I only wish I had Bob as my attorney right from the beginning. I know I should 'stick to the facts' but I must say that a few years before my false accusation I taught one of his daughters in third grade! She was a wonderful student from a wonderful family.
