Wonderful Representation during Custody battle
My son recently hired Adam to represent him with a custody issue. Adam was professional during this entire process. He explained everything in detail, filed proposed settlement agreements with her attorney, and was available to talk or meet with my son throughout the entire process. On court date, he was able to negotiate a settlement that my son wanted, without going before the Judge. The judge was pleased that this was accomplished and signed the custody agreement. I would highly recommend Adam Vorhis. He is professional, knowledgeable, and attentive to detail.

Professional, Helpful, Quick!
Adam was extremely helpful, professional, and did not waste either of our time. He handled my legal matters much quicker than I expected, and way quicker than a friend of mine who happened to be going through the exact same situation. I've worked with him at two firms now and I would whole heartedly recommend Mr. Vorhis. He is objective, honest, and will not lead you in the wrong direction just to have your business. He treats your personal matters, time, and money with the utmost respect. I won't look for another lawyer of his specialization in the future, as I already know he will handle anything that comes my way.

Best interest
Adam is an amazing attorney as well as the support staff at the firm. He was prompt to give my family updates and keep us abreast of changes. He was honest from day one asking what the end goal was. Adam advised my father on every matter weather good or bad in his favor. I feel that he takes his job to an extra level of caring for the best out come possible. My family appreciates all the time and effort he and his staff took for our father.

Divorce, custody and support
Adam did an amazing job of helping me deal with the court process. I had been legally separated for 3 years before diving back into the court system to try and finalize the divorce, change the child support and the child custody. In those 3 years several things had changed and when I first went back into the courts I tried to do so without an attorney, but it seemed like everything was being done wrong and the judges let me know that. So I ended up looking for an attorney, and, through the attorney who handled the original separation, I was put in touch with Adam. My first consultation with him was wonderful as he managed to explain what the issues the judges had with the filings were and to help me understand what needed to happen. I hired him right after that. He handled the child custody first, as that was already in motion by the time I hired him. He made the whole process understandable and explained the steps needed to get through it. The child support issues, which were also underway, he helped to resolve just as effectively, moving the issue out of child support court and into family court. The easiest issue was the divorce, but he took care of that as well. Overall, he helped me through a difficult process, making it far easier to deal with and understand, kept me informed of what was happening and why. I am very grateful to Adam for his hard work and effort in helping me with the custody and divorce issues, as well as the child support issues, which were greatly affected by the outcome of the child custody case.

Considerate and Knowledgeable
I hired Adam for a difficult custody case. My ex-husband wanted to sign away his parental rights, and while I was agreeable to the situation, I was completely clueless where to start. Even though my ex-husband started the process he and his attorney were difficult to work with. Adam was there every step of the way. He was insightful and kind. He was responsive to my questions, answering emails within hours. He also has a broad legal knowledge and a good moral compass. I felt proud to have him on my side. He also has a gem in his paralegal, Debbie. She is warm, funny and compassionate. Adam was able to take a very stressful situation and turn it into a win for my child.

Always in contact, and always on top of everything
I hired Adam to help with a child custody case. I had documents ready to file within days, he was always able to be reached if I had questions, and he was up front about cost and process. In the end, I didn't need to continue using his services, as the situation was settled in a different manner, but I recommend him to everyone I know that has child custody situations to deal with.

Professional, thorough, and razor-sharp!
I hired Adam to help me navigate a tricky and emotionally-charged custody battle as well as child support litigation. So glad I did! My ex and her lawyer were extremely manipulative and hostile, but Adam remained cool under fire and didn't get caught up in frothy emotional appeal. He had a razor-sharp way of cutting through the smoke and mirrors and laying bare the real issues we needed to address. He anticipated their moves, was always prepared, and operated with precision and integrity. We didn't have to resort to their dirty tactics, which won us favor with the judge and ultimately helped us resolve both cases with favorable outcomes. I recommend Adam highly to anyone who is looking for excellent representation.

Fantastic Job
Adam represented me in my divorce. Let's start by saying we won on all counts. He did a wonderful job in trial and kept me informed of why he did some things and not others. He was by my side the whole way. He did his best to keep me level headed and focused on what was important. In the end, every thing he told me would happen when we had our consultation, happened. Glad I was referred to him. Adam kicked tail in the court room and went above and beyond for me outside of the court.

Outstanding Family Lawyer
Adam has represented me in both a contempt of court claim and a modification of child support case. As a former criminal defense lawyer Adam displays a demeanor that is both confident and assertive when in court. He takes the time to answer any questions and is excellent at helping separate the emotional from the actual - a very important skill in family law. He also is very reasonable with his charges and does not nickle and dime your for every little thing. I would highly recommend Adam as a family lawyer.

Great Lawyer!
Adam is a wonderful Lawyer. He not only took the time to understand all of my needs and concerns, but kept me level headed and focused on what I really wanted the end result to be. Adam is fair and assertive, he understands how to keep the client calm in these difficult situations. In my own experience when things were very hard and emotional Adam would take the time to listen and show compassion for what I was going through in a genuine manor. He gets directly to the point and takes immediate action. Adam has always gone out of his way for me when representing me and made me feel as though he has the best intentions for my child and myself. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone needing his legal services.

Honest and Efficient Representation
Mr. Vorhis recently handled my divorce case and I am glad I went with his firm. Mr. Vorhis was very prompt and informative throughout the entire process. His staff is equally as pleasant, always quick to respond to questions or offer assistance. I felt he always had my best interest in mind and never once did I feel taken advantage of. I would highly recommend Mr. Vorhis to anyone that is seeking legal representation for a family or custody matter.

Outstanding guidance
I couldn't have asked for better, calmer and more specific advise as I went through an emotionally painful divorce. Obviously a difficult time, Mr. Vorhis was both professional and warm, knowledgeable and able to translate my goals into legal interpretation and action. I am pleased with my final results and have already recommended him highly.

Mr. Vorhis is a confident, skilled, and aggressive attorney
Mr. Vorhis handled my child custody case. We have been so lucky to have such a professional and hardworking attorney. He communicates very well with his clients. He is affordable and will not rip you off. He doesn't run up attorney fees needlessly and stays very honest. Our case was complex and involved false allegations. He was able to prove our innocence despite the aggression and persistence of the opposing party. In court, he is a champion. He is aggressive and can easily catch the opposing party in a lie. He uses his experience as a prosecutor to take control of a courtroom and will represent you and your case with confidence and integrity. He has a strong desire to succeed. He focuses his questioning on child custody and all of the factors that favor a win. He lined up many professional witnesses to better our case. He was always one step ahead of the opposing party. Do not go into a custody dispute without an attorney. Our children are most important to us and they deserve the best chance at happiness. If you need an attorney, contact Mr. Vorhis. He will take away all of your worry and stress and treat you with respect and dignity. The legal assistants and paralegals at the firm are skilled and communicate well with the clients. I highly recommend Mr. Vorhis. I strongly believe that he and his colleagues are the best attorneys in Gainesville. We won our case. Hearing the final judgment was better than winning the lottery.
