Adam and the Wapner Newman team are the best!
Our decision to contact Adam was the best decision we could have made. From the first meeting we felt confident in him. He was relentless in fighting for what we deserved all while always keeping our personal well being in mind. Personally, he made us feel comfortable and safe and we new we were in good hands. Professionally he is excellent and definitely on top of his game. He is so thorough in his preparation that there is nothing missed. Along with the Rob and the Wapner Newman team, we never had a doubt about our choice to go with them. We highly recommended Adam, Rob and the Wapner Newman team.

Best decision I've ever made!
When I began the process of looking for the right personal injury attorney for my particular situation, it took just one phone call with Adam Getson from Wapner Newman for me to know he was/is “my guy”. He expertly and thoroughly guided me through each step of the process and was always available to answer each of my questions... all 10,001 of them. What began as literally the most excruciatingly painful experience in my life, turned into a nearly five-year journey due to Covid. However, Adam was by my side every step of the way, as was his absolutely wonderful Paralegal, Patricia Pereira. I don’t wish what I have had to physically endure on ANYONE. But, if you ever find yourself in need of top-notch representation, I can tell you from the bottom of my heart that Adam Getson and his team at Wapner Newman will ALWAYS have your back and keep your best interests front and center at all times, no matter how long the process may take. There was never a second I doubted my decision to sign with them and I would absolutely do so again should the need ever arise. Thank you times infinity to Adam and everyone else involved for getting me through such a grueling ordeal and making things as easy as possible. I will be forever indebted to you.

Excellent & Honest
In February 2018 I was in a car accident and wanted to speak to a lawyer regarding my options since I sustained a pretty serious injury. I was referred to Adam Getson by a previous coworker and will forever be grateful for the referral. Adam and his team were very responsive with my worries or questions, they handled everything professionally but in a warm manner and fought for what was right for me. In the end I was beyond satisfied with the settlement Adam and his team won for me. If I am ever in need of a lawyer again I will no doubt call Adam.

Adam went above and beyond for my case- he always seemed extremely genuine when speaking to myself and my family ( which you barley find when talking to attorneys). I recommend Mr. Getson to anyone that needs assistance with a personal injury case.

Willing to go the extra mile!
I was involved in a car accident and the other insurance company wanted nothing to do with giving any kind of settlement. Mr. Getson went out of his way and worked incredibly hard to make sure I received the compensation that I deserved. He was there for me throughout the whole process, always returning my calls in a timely fashion, and answering all question I had. he and his staff are completely courteous and friendly, In my opinion you could not ask for a better attorney.

Trustworthy
I was recently in an automobile accident and I needed an attorney that I felt I could rely on to have my best interest at hand. Previously I have had attorneys that I have gotten the impression that their primary interest was to make a quick buck and move on. When I first met Mr. Getson I knew that he was going to fight to the end and treat me with the respect I deserve. By the end of the case I felt like I had an attorney for life and a new friend. Ask yourself, what else could you want in an attorney- trustworthy, confident, and will always fight for your best interest.

The Perfect Attorney
I consulted with Adam after a car accident where I sustained physical and financial damages. I was scared and unsure how to deal with insurance companies, doctors, and police. Adam simplified the process and this allowed me to focus on the most important thing...getting better. I would recommend Adam to anyone involved in an automobile accident. Further, I would endorse him as a lawyer to those that need legal assistance in any capacity.

Amazing lawyer, highly recommend him
Adam helped me get justice for a car accident I was in, and fought for me the whole way. He made me feel comfortable from the first time I met with him and always made me feel like I was his only client, even though he had many many others. He truly cared about my case, but moreso, about me. Very professional, and trustworthy. He went above and beyond to help me and always made sure I was being taken care of. He's an amazing attorney, and person and I highly, highly recommend him!

Do not hesistate, Adam gets the job done!!! He is the real deal as an attorney and as a person.
Mr. Getson is absolutely one of the finest attorneys I have ever worked with in my adult life. Service to me is number one and Adam is on top of my legal matters as well as keeping the lines of communication open with me. He is very articulate and explains everything to me in not only the legal verbage I do not necessarily understand, but explains it in plain English. He is very well versed in the law and the legal system. I am very lucky to have Adam as my attorney.

Wonderful and Highly Recommended Lawyer
I highly recommend Mr. Getson. I hired him a year ago to represent me in a personal injury case and I was very happy with the results. He keeps you informed every step of the way, is sympathetic and is very knowledgable. My case was handled as if it were his most important. Thank you again!

Thorough
I was in a car accident. I found Mr Getson to be not only sympathetic to my situation, but to be completely compassionate of my situation. Not only does he know the law, but he follows up and made sure I knew entirely what my options were. He was honest...he was kind...and truthfully I was told by someone I worked with to give him a call if I want an excellent lawyer that goes above and beyond. I would highly recommend Mr Getson
