Landlord
We were overwhelmed when we needed to evict a tenant. Adam walked us through every step and made sure we didn’t take the longer way by not doing it properly. He was an incredibly calming lawyer to have on court date. It took the stress out of a complex process.

Excellent representation
Mr. Linett intervened in a vacation timeshare issue that was being mishandled by an imcompetent legal firm (Mr. Linett does not get involved directly with vacation timeshare issues). That legal firn was assigned by an agency who advertised themselves as a service that resolved vacation timshare problems. After several years of poor communcation and inaction, the incompetent law firm wanted $6,500 in additional money to do what was not requested, which would have cost me thousands of dollars in prepaid membership fees. The agency claimed no responsibility for the poor service provided by the law firm. Mr. Adam Linett presuaded the law firm to request my paid up vacation timeshare membership be restored and an upgrade, for which I was being overcharged, canceled. The results was excellent.

Helped me
Mr. Linett successfully helped me in my plea bargain, got a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor, and made a favorable statement on my behalf. North Carolina citizens should consider the services of Adam Linett.

From Stranger to a Trusted Friend
I first met Adam at the recommendation from a friend. I live outside of Atlanta and needed a lawyer with specific skills and background as I was forced to protect family members who were in the process of being taken advantage of by others without their realizing it. From the moment we first spoke I knew that he was more than the right lawyer, that he was the perfect one for our situation. He did a terrific job representing us and our family members and things were settled in our behalf, more than simply to our satisfaction. Since then we have had reason to require his expertise on another matter which also turned out wonderfully for us. My only complaint is that we live two states apart! Yet we have been treated by Adam and all his staff as if we were family rather than clients. We cannot speak more highly of him and his firm. Thanks, Adam

Automobile accident
I was t-boned in my pickup truck, which was totaled, and was lost as what to do. I realized later that I needed a lawyer and was told by a friend about Mr. Linett who had used his services. I am truly grateful that I did have Mr Linett as my lawyer. He showed compassion, was patience, and understood the situation I was in. He helped me with every step I needed to take, and listened to my worries and concerns. He was honest with me and gently directed me to decisions I had to make and options that were available. I will hire his services again and continue to let my friends know about him.

PHENOMENAL JOB
Mr. Linett represented me in a very difficult work'ers comp case, and did a phenomenal job. Prior to meeting with him, I had almost given up hope of finding someone who would represent me that I felt like I could trust. Throughout the process, he answered all of my questions and kept me informed of everything that was going on, He was incredibly caring throughout the whole process, and fought to get me the highest amount possible. We are grateful for helping me and my family through a very difficult situation.”

Mr. Linett is very professional and organized. He was able to successfully represent our case Vs. The North Carolina Department of Transportation. Mr. Linett made us feel well cared for and kept us informed throughout the entire process answering any questions we had in a timely manner. Mr. Linett and his team did the necessary research in our case as well as previous cases to show that we were well within our rights to seek due compensation. We are very pleased with the outcome acquiring a settlement above and beyond our expectations. I definitely recommend Mr. Linett if you are in need of legal representation.

Representation with Confidence and Care
I am pleased to say that Attorney Linett successfully represented me in a discrimination case. At our initial meeting, I felt very comfortable and assured that he was the right person to represent me in what I saw as an uphill battle. In such cases, Attorney Linett is the right person. Dealing with legal matters as a layperson, in my opinion, can be highly stressful, scary, and pressure-filled. In such a state, someone needs representation that is confident, calm, effective, and brutally honest enough to ask the questions needed to get down to the facts leading to an open and honest legal relationship. I can say that Attorney Linett was the right person to represent me at the time when I really needed someone who can help me hold it together during this trying time. I gladly recommend Adam Linett and Associates for I am well-pleased with the resolution of my case. Thanks to everyone at the firm who contributed to taking some good care of me over the past 18 months.

Right of Way Dispute
Adam agreed to represent me in a case where another law firm had failed. He was amazing. By his diligence in reviewing the matter he discovered information that resulted in an outcome that was far beyond my expectations. Extremely competent and wise.

Contract Non Payment and Defamatory Public Statements
Adam is a great lawyer. What I liked the most was Adam listened carefully to my problem and looked over all my documents presented to him. Then Adam soft spoken offered several helpful suggestions that I could apply immediately. Lastly he compiled a legal letter for me and sent it to the party in question. The letter was extremely effective as the party responded quickly and was ready to provide the last remaining payment on my contract and settled a defamation statement at the same time. KUDOS!!!! to Adam Linett. If you need a lawyer Adam is the absolute very best and honest and efficient. Thank you Adam! John Schmidt/Innovative Design

Great Attorney who gives attention to details
From the first day I met with Adam, I sensed that I had nothing to worry about. Adam was very upfront and honest about everything. He let me know exactly how my Worker's Comp case would play out, and it did just as he said. He kept me in the loop and up to date every step of the way to the very end. He made sure I received everything I was entitled to. My family and I are very grateful for everything Adam did and his associates. I highly recommend him as a Worker's Comp Lawyer.

Real Honesty
My wife and I searched all over North Carolina for a lawyer that was 1) Honest, 2) Knowlegable, 3) Someone who really cared. We found all the above with Adam Linette and his paralegal Lori. This team worked so hard to help us both. We had our home destroyed by a contractor and had to move three times. One could only imagine how poor our filing system was! We had trash can bags full of receipts including literally over 5,000 documents that was kindly caterorgized and summed up. I have no idea of the countless hours spent in our service! We will be forever grateful for the hard work and efforts to help us! We highly recommend Adam Linette and his associates for help.

Mr. Adam G. Linett is Very Knowledgeable, Competent, and Well-Seasoned
I have been using Mr. Linett's services since 1996 when I started my business. One of the more recent favorable decisions secured for my company by Mr. Linett involved a home improvement contract dispute in which the defendant (a former customer of mine) appealed after losing to us at trial. Throughout the whole discovery, trial and appeal process I was always kept fully informed by Mr. Linett. His attention to all the minute details, and his thorough preparedness, became clearly evident during the trial. What impressed me the most was the comprehensiveness of his knowledge of the rules of procedure, the rules of evidence, and his knowledge of so many different little laws and statutes. It's one thing to have knowledge of all these little rules & laws, it's something completely different to seemingly always be able to cite the precise rule that applies at the precise time that it is needed. On more than one occasion the judge did his own research to verify an obscure rule or law that Mr. Linett applied on our behalf during the proceedings. On another occasion the judge commended Mr. Linett's meticulous compliance with procedure and said Mr. Linett would always be welcome in his courtroom. Mr. Linett's performance made it look like the other attorney had just graduated from law school. THE CASE: Initially my customer claimed that our work was defective and refused to pay us. When I inspected the job I discovered a minor aesthetic manufacturing defect in the materials. I got the manufacturer involved and the manufacturer acknowledged the defect, without actually saying it was a defect, and offered my customer several thousand dollars as a good faith gesture if my customer would accept the installed materials "as is". My customer said he would pay me when he got the check from the manufacturer. My customer never paid me, so I sued him. During trial it was revealed that my customer had been awarded enough money from his insurance company to pay for 90% of the job before he even hired my company. It was further revealed that he had indeed accepted several thousand dollars from the manufacturer for the minor aesthetic defect that he was still trying to hold my company responsible for. Through skillful questioning by Mr. Linett, my former customer was caught in a couple of lies on the stand. There was also a bunch of hearsay and many documents, including one document allegedly written by an "expert", presented by my former customer during trial that were ruled inadmissible thanks to Mr. Linett. Not withstanding the lies, our case would still have boiled down to the fact that my customer, at best, had only a layman's understanding of the work being disputed, and therefore, as a matter of law, he was not qualified to testify as to the nature or quality of the product or the installation. The judge decided in our favor, and the appeals court just recently decided in our favor as well.
