I did not intend to be a criminal defense lawyer, and it seems my classmates knew I was destined for this job even before I did.

 

The start of law school for me also marked the start a devastating economic downturn.  While I originally wanted to focus on law in the technology sector, the only job I could find after my first year of law school was in the Griffin Circuit Public Defender's Office (where I would ultimately be employed upon passing the Bar).  Within a few weeks of starting that internship I managed to get a client's case dismissed, and from then on I was hooked.  I returned to law school and changed all my classes to focus on criminal defense, and began taking as many internship opportunities as I could get (including working at the Federal Defender's Office and the Narcotics Division of the Bibb County Public Defender's Office).  Even in classes that applied to both civil and criminal I signed up for professors with backgrounds in criminal practice.

 

I have dedicated my practice to helping stand with people accused of crimes.  I am, perhaps even to a fault, heavily invested in my clients and their needs.  I lose sleep worrying about cases, and many of my personal "vacations" are criminal defense seminars.  Criminal defense is my life, and my love, and I consider it an honor to be chosen by people to protect them when the Sovereign comes to take their freedom.

Stellar Representation at an Affordable Rate.
Adam Younker will provide piece of mind for your legal concerns. I was very anxious about my issue in Coweta County before I retained Adam. Needless to say, He took great care of me. One last thing I MUST mention is that Adam accepted my case with LESS THAN A WEEK before my next appearance. He handled it as if he were with me from the very beginning. Adam Yonkers... An Exceptional Litigator at an EXCELLENT Cost. Worth Every PENNY!!!

Dependable Representation
Adam is hardworking and trustworthy. He has represented me for years and I'm always satisfied with the outcome. His aggressiveness is superb, you need a lawyer that will push the envelope. In my most recent case, Adam advise against every deal the prosecution offered and was willing to recuse the state/judge if we didn't get the deal I wanted in a 2 DUI case. Day of trial, we got the deal I wanted! In my experience with attorneys, you get what you pay for... sure you may be able to find cheaper representation but Adam is definitely worth his rate. If you need a dependable lawyer at a fair rate, call Adam.

Won the case, no plea deal.
I first met with Mr. Younker a few weeks after my arrest for DUI. I was nervous of course because I knew I wasn't intoxicated but that's not enough for court. After reviewing my case it was a no brainer we were turning down plea deals and fighting this thing. He walked me through every step of the way. Picked a jury, compared notes, he listened to me and any ideas that I could possibly bring to the table. We had a 5 to 1 acquittal in 20 mins. It eventually lead to the case being dismissed. It was a full on trial too, witnesses, videos, arguing, whole 9. He fought for me and won, I would highly recommend this man to anyone in need of a lawyer. Very fair priced as well.

Excellent advocate
Adam Younker represented me in a very contentious pre issuance hearing that could have resulted in life changing charges. Ä wss the consummate professional but was also a bulldog. Adam won the case with a summary judgement! If I ever have the need for criminal defense again he is my first call without a second thought.

Top notch lawyer
Adam was very helpful with my case. He always gave me the information I needed and explained the issues I didn't understand. He also helped me to accomplish the end result that I desired, which was appreciated. Along with being on top of his job, Adam always provided some humor along the way, making court just a little more bearable. I highly recommend him, he's awesome at what he does and will keep you entertained along the way.
