About Adam

Learn Adam’s areas of practice.

2
Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    50%
    My criminal defense practice runs the spectrum, from small traffic cases to major felonies. I can also help with probation violations, pre-warrant "what do I do" scenarios, and protective orders.

  2. DUI and DWI
    50%
    DUI was 100% of my practice for two years. I maintain membership in the National College of DUI Defense, and Georgia's peer-selected Defense of Drinking Driver's group.

Adam loves a challenge. Just ask him about the time a well-known judge “asked” him to cross examine a State Trooper for two hours in complete darkness after the power went out (Adam won, the blood test being fought was suppressed). There are a number of people who have Adam to thank for saving their careers after obtaining a NOT GUILTY verdict at trial, including military officers with Top Secret clearances, commercial airline pilots, medical personnel, and even other lawyers who chose Adam to represent them when they were at their most vulnerable. Simply put, he hates losing, and will obsess about your case until he finds the best possible way to defend you. Some people simply can’t afford to have a criminal conviction.

DUI Defense
Adam is certified in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing, and has taken coursework in the “Drug Recognition Expert” (DRE) model, which is what law enforcement considers the highest level of DUI and drug impairment detection. Adam has also taken a post-graduate course in Forensic Metrology, which is the science of measurement. He maintains licensure as a Georgia Professional Registered Nurse, which gives him special insight into many other facets of DUI investigations. He is a member of the National College of DUI Defense and was selected by fellow Georgia DUI expert attorneys to be a full member of Georgia’s Defense of Drinking Drivers Institute. He has successfully defended many clients ranging from the homeless, to NFL and MLB players, and screen actors. Adam will work tirelessly to get the outcome you desire, whether that is winning the case outright in a jury trial or finding creative solutions for those with a more discrete need.

Free Consultation
First, Don’t Panic. Adam’s main goal during a consultation is to reduce your stress. That often leads to potential clients becoming actual clients. He doesn’t like the “used car salesman” approach, so he doesn’t subject others to such tactics, either. He is a firm believer that a consultation should leave you feeling educated and ready to begin the process of moving forward towards a powerful defense. The length of the consultation is determined by your needs—some cases take twenty minutes; others might need hours. For your ease, most consultations can take place over the phone.

Commitment to YOU
Adam was an Assistant Public Defender in Paulding County, Georgia, where he handled over 1,000 criminal cases ranging from murder to juvenile delinquency. Adam greatest joy in public defense was the figuring out that the underdog can win if enough work is put into a case. His background in science lead him into the trenches of DUI defense, fighting back against law enforcement’s pseudo-science. This led to him being later recruited by a prestigious DUI-specific firm in metro-Atlanta. To this day, Adam still takes some appointed cases just to make sure his motives remain in the right place. He has been an invited speaker on the topic of pro-bono criminal defense, and he mentors up-and-coming assistant public defenders in DUI defense across Northern Georgia. His public defense experience was formative, teaching him three key things. (1) Everyone deserves a constitutionally effective defense. (2) Everyone deserves a trustworthy attorney regardless of whether a fee was paid. (3) Everyone deserves an attorney curious enough to study and learn about new topics that may arise in a given case.

Help with Substance Abuse
Adam understands how small details can make a big impact on a person’s life. Just after finishing a residency in critical care nursing, Adam saw how unjust our system was, dumping folks with addiction problems right back into the world without any help. He put his money where his mouth was and went to law school. If you are one of Adam’s clients, he will be there for you come thick or thin, and if you need help, he will get it to you. Adam has developed close relationships with many substance abuse evaluators, and will only refer his clients to those he trusts to make an honest assessment.

Family & Free Time
At one point in his life, Adam was a wilderness first responder and climbing guide. While he doesn’t dangle off cliffs anymore, he still frequently spends time backpacking in the mountains with his wife and four daughters.

Best lawyer!
Adam took on my case after my attorney retired. He was very professional and knew everything on my case. He got me a full dismissal. He was very efficient and made me feel at ease knowing I had multiple options he was willing to use to lessen my sentence. Luckily we didn’t have to use any of the other options. I would recommend Adam to anyone that is in need of a good, fare, professional lawyer. His staff is also too notch! They all were up to date on my case and were helpful when I needed anything. I cant thank Adam enough!! He’s changed my life. I have been given a second chance and I’m just so thankful!

Forever Great full!
Attorney Adam is amazing! He took the time to understand my situation in its entirety and had my best interest through out the entire process. He explained everything in ways that I could understand and completely supported my decision to go to trial. He pulled out all the stops against the prosecutor and found that the arrest was based on a cop’s biased opinion! He is an amazing lawyer who will stop at nothing to help you win even when you think the odds are against you. Thank you Attorney Adam I am forever great full!

I will never hire anyone else
Adam Brown has saved my life more times than I can count and I cannot thank him enough. He truly went above and beyond for my cases every time I have retained him. In addition to his professionalism he is also one of the most compassionate and caring defense attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of being represented by which is something that you just don't find in most lawyers. He made me feel confident in his legal skills without ever sugarcoating things for me when the circumstances looked bleak in my cases. If you want a lawyer who truly cares about his clients as opposed to one who is in it solely for the money, look no further than Adam Brown. I honestly consider this man an angel in my life that always went to bat for me and had my back when I needed his help the most. I can't sing his praises enough. When you need a fantastic criminal defense attorney, HIRE THIS MAN.

Protest case dismissed
Adam was the first lawyer I went to after I was wrongfully arrested and charged during a peaceful BLM protest. He is a lawyer who truly cares about people and equality. His confidence assured me that the case would be dismissed relatively easily, and he was right. He knows his way around the law and politics, and will fight for you to a successful outcome. If you hire Adam, he will always be on your side.

I had a number of speeding tickets which the consequences seemed to severe for the offense. It was then that I began to seek legal counsel & came across attorney Adam Brown. Once hired he consulted me throughout the entire case & as for my other cases that were out of his jurisdiction he referred me to the best of the best whom also gave me reasonable rates may I add.

Great Experience !
I contacted Adam on a Sunday after having a scuffle with an irate neighbor. He answered and spoke to me about all the process I needed to go through to defend myself from this crazy situation. I had never had any issues with the law prior and Adam put me at ease. After reviewing my case he was very clear on how we needed to proceed, how much it cost and how long it would take. Throughout my case he kept me up to date on all issues and continuations. As we hoped the charges were dismissed. Adam was a great help and he did everything he said for the cost we discussed. I would recommend Adam to anyone who needs his services.

Traveling Nurse
I found myself in a situation of possibility loosing my professional nursing license and needed representation to save it. There were only four layers listed that handled this type of case that I could find in Georgia. I contacted Mr Brown on a Wednesday afternoon and found myself with not only a path to proceed on and in the hands of a very skilled lawyer. Within a week I had appointments for required evaluations by the State Board of Nursing. I completed all required request and Mr Brown handled the rest of the interaction with the board. I am truly great full for his assistants in this matter and retained my nursing license without any further stipulations being placed on me. Mr Brown was better than I hoped for and very respectful of me and my needs. I highly recommend him as a lawyer that will be in your corner.

Nursing License defense
I was referred to Adam to represent me in the defense of my nursing license after I received a DUI last fall. The time between conviction and presenting your case to the board is very time sensitive and stressful. Adam was extremely responsive to all of my texts, emails, and phone calls. He was calm, and knowledgeable about what to do and what to expect. We had my case closed literally within days and I received no disciplinary actions on my license thanks to Adams knowledge about the BON. I would refer him in a heartbeat to anyone that finds themselves in this unfortunate situation. I cannot thank him enough for saving me perhaps months or years of financial and emotional stress.

Proactive, Supportive, & Clever
Even after the first contact with Mr. Brown, I knew I was in better hands than normal. I was accused of a crime I did not commit and false charges were made. Adam was able to navigate every avenue and get this resolved amazingly swift. Even though your case might not be like mine was and the outcome of your may vary, he was able to get mine dismissed and stricken from the record! He tells straight and won't pull you around. His personality and expertise gives him a leg up on the competition. His willingness tp help others and compassion is what really makes him a great Lawyer.

Best decision ever! Saved my career
While having my whole career on the line and speaking with plenty other big name lawyers in the area, all of them except for Adam basically told me I was doomed because of the result of the breathalyzer almost 3x the limit. Adam never gave up hope on both my DUI cases, and as a result and him keeping up with everything and fighting with the courts/prosecutors/etc, I have 0 convinctions and get to keep my job! Very thankful to have hired Adam Brown!

Amazing work- No DUI
Adam has been such an amazing attorney. This was my first in counter with the law and I honestly didn’t have much knowledge on what to do. Having such admirable experience as a lawyer and nurse I felt I had everything I needed to close a good case that best worked for me from the time we first met. He understood my situation in every way and worked with me along that period of time. I can’t be more appreciative of that , his patience with me, professionalism and willingness to get the job done. This case ended with no Dui with a reduction to reckless driving. I am so satisfied with his services. If you’re are looking for an attorney, I believe Adam Brown is your best choice. Thank you again Adam!

Fantastic
Just had a consultation with Mr. Brown. Even though I'm in California and called at nearly 9pm, Mr. Brown picked up the phone right away. I've gotten clear and accurate advice on how to proceed about my circumstance. Not only was Adam knowledgeable, he was great to talk to. If you've gotten a ticket and need advice and representation, this is the attorney to call.

Great work
am more than happy to recommend my lawyer, Adam Brown, for his professional handling of my second DUI charge (within a 10 year time frame). Although the facts of this case looked rather grim and included the refusal to use the breath analyzer, the charges were reduced to reckless driving and even a hard license suspension was avoided. Adam not only kept me in the loop for case updates through the entire process, but he acted as a loyal friend and calmed me down whenever I had a case related panic attack. Good luck.
