DWI
Mr. Ryan Ames worked wonders on my Daughters case. All other lawyers tried to convince me to plead guilty to DWI and he was the only one that believed in my Daughter, After a 2 year long battle, NOT GUILTY!!! I would Like also to thank Mr. Seifer and his Office staff for all the support and help they gave My to my daughter . And definitely I would recommend anyone that have a case and he feels they are not guilty To consult their office before they do anything else

Problem Solved
I was charged with Reckless Driving. A big deal in NC as it's a criminal offense. After reading lawyer reviews I contacted three attorneys. Adam's team responded the best and I hired them. They had me take an online defensive driving course and right when I was beginning to wonder what the next step was, they contacted me by phone and email and told me my charges were dismissed. The attorney and office staff were courteous and straightforward, communicating well. I highly recommend this firm.

Affordable attorney who gets favorable outcomes
Adam handled my speeding ticket and was able to get it reduced to a non moving violation of Improper Equipment which did not allow any DMV or insurance points. The office communicated with me and notified me immediately after the court hearing. I highly recommend Adam as his rates are reasonable and the outcomes are favorable.

Review
Adam was amazing with helping me as soon as my charge was placed. He called me that day and explained the process of what’s to come. He answers me back immediately when I had any questions and helped take off so much stress for me with the situation.

Assertive, Understanding, A Real Person
Fresh out of college on a new journey for a professional career., I obtained a DUI. James not only got my charges dismissed, but he was very human about my entire experience. He spoke on my behalf with dignity, and showed me upmost respect. Hindsight, I am truly pleased and thankful to have given SeiferFlatow and James my trust throughout my DUI experience. Everyone at the firm is understanding, hardworking, persistent, and they Will Take Care of You. I highly recommend SeiferFlatow. Thank you again James!

Superb Representation
Adam Seifer came very highly recommended to me by friends and others that used him for representation. From the moment he was hired, he was able to guide me every step of the way through the legal process, answering all my questions and keeping me up to date on every aspect of the case. Additionally, he has a hard working team that was always there. I will always be thankful to have had the opportunity to work with such a professional.

Trust is key when you hire a lawyer
Adam has been a very knowledgeable lawyer worthy of trust. He has been very patient, and has spend a lot of time explaining processes to me in order to defend my case. Anytime I got in touch with him, he was reactive and very precise with his answers. When you do have to hire a lawyer, you need to spend a lot of time researching the one who you know will care, be reliable and hard-working and it can be a very complicated task. Adam is not an above standard lawyer who truly cares about justice and people. He is a very trustworthy, technical, educated, reliable lawyer who does not take his job lightly.

Awesome experience
I had an unfortunate traffic incident. I met with Adam first and discussed my case. He was very knowledgeable and helpful right off the get go. They took my case and Jennifer advised me of the proceedings throughout the case, I only had to to go to court once. Met Ed Martin at court and it wasn't 20 mins and he had my case dismissed. I have used lawyers in the past and this team is by far the most professional and knowledgeable group of attorneys I've ever dealt with. Thank you all for your time and effort into my case.

Best Team in Charlotte
After reviewing outstanding reviews from the law firm, I decided to hire Seifer Flatow represent me for a DWI and traffic violation. Exceeded my expectations handling the case, and unlike most firms, are easy to get a hold of and very personable. To anyone looking for results while being kept in the loop every step of the way, this is the firm to hire.

I wish I had a choice for more stars
Adam and his entire team at SeiferFlatow were incredible with my case. I had a pending DWI and due to a high BAC I knew this was an uphill battle. I searched for attorneys to hire and found Adam Seifer’s reviews on Google to be outstanding. After my first meeting with Adam, I knew I would be in good hands and felt comforted with the plethora of awards on the walls. Now I know why they have such great reviews and why they’ve earned all of their plaques that are in the office- this firm and all of the attorneys within truly are the BEST in the business. When you hire them you hire a dedicated team. Oh and I got the best outcome in my case...DISMISSED! I’ve never been so relieved in my life. Thank you, Adam and Team, for giving me my life back!
