Excellent Attorney Suren Adams. excellent staff.
I went to one of Mrs. Adams seminars which was very informative. I was very impressed and hired her for my estate Attorney. She did a great job for our family. She is very detailed and patient and her staff was very supportive. I am very satisfied with our estate package and would highly recommend her service for estate planning.

Highly Recommended
Suren has done an excellent job in representing my family and I in various legal, estate planning and real estate matters. We communicated via phone, email and a few face to face encounters. Adam Law Office has an excellent support staff as well and they are responsive to your needs. I have been working with her for close to three years on different legal issues. I recently told her it's like she has become apart of the family. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to uphold the highest level of ethical standards, professionalism, confidentiality and care and concern for their clients.

Great Law Firm!!!
My husband and I used Adams Law Office to develop a Trust for our assets and secure financial support with care for our children. All staff were very professional and helpful. Ericca L. Pearson and Jon Spiers provided the absolute best service. We could not be happier and would recommend their estate services to anyone seeking this type of assistance.

Ericca Pearson
I was treated with the upmost respect regarding my having to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Ericca Pearson, my attorney handled my case with efficiency and a vast knowledge of the entire bankruptcy court system. Attorney Pearson brought to my case her warmth and humanity. I highly recommend this law office. From the initial telephone call to the appearance before the bankruptcy court trustee they are here for you.

Quick and reliable
I would like to thank Surin Adams law firm for all she did for me. I was dealing with a case with anlther attorney since 2016 and nothing was getting done. I looked for another attorney and got referred to Surin law firm after speaking with her I immediately hired her and 3 weeks later she had my case solved. Her office was very quick and knowledgable and I'll tell anyone that if you're looking for an awesome attorney, an office with a great atmosphere, and a law firm thats quick to reslond and communicate well then this is the law firm that youre looking for. I highly recommend Surin Adams Law Firm

A stellar firm.
I sat in on an information presentation with Ms. Adams and Ms. Pearson. Based on that, I retained their services for an estate matter. Ms. Pearson is a highly skilled and incredibly knowledgable attorney. Not only did she handle the estate matter without incident, she stayed on after the conclusion of the scope of representation to make sure that all institutions involved in the matter were up to speed. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend this firm for all of your estate planning and other needs.

Great lawyer, great service
Due to massive medical bills there came a time in my life when I had to file bankruptcy. I had always had perfect credit so needing to do this was emotionally devastating. During our first meeting Mrs Adams made me feel comfortable about what I had to do. She explained everything in great detail about the process and what my options were. During the entire process I was supported not only by Mrs. Adams but her staff as well. Calls or emails to her office were answered in a very timely fashion. There was never a time when I felt uncomfortable about how things were progressing. When time for the review of my case came she was with me and made sure I was prepared for the types of questions that would be asked. Even after the case was heard she kept me informed on what next steps were and the timeline to expect. I would recommend Mrs Adams law firm to anyone because of the professionalism and caring that was displayed.

Attorney Suren Adams Is The BEST!
My husband and I are nearing the end of our 5-year Chapter 13 Plan...when I contacted Suren Adams in 2009, we were on a "downward spiral" and did not have Peace. During our initial consultation, Suren made us feel extremely comfortable. She has excellent listening skills AND she gives clear and concise counsel! Suren's counsel allowed us to re-organize and as a result we found Peace. We have referred Suren to several family members and friends--all of whom express the same--She is the BEST!!!
