WE ARE COMMITTED TO MAKING HIGH QUALITY LEGAL REPRESENTATION AFFORDABLE FOR EVERYONE.

Our mission is to make quality legal representation affordable for everyone. To do this, our office uses a team and systems-based approach that leverages technology and collaboration to maximize efficiency. We quote low up-front fee advances, competitive rates, affordable retainer fees, and offer flexible payment arrangements. In this way, we expand access to legal representation to those who may not otherwise be able to afford hiring a diligent, aggressive, and skilled attorney to handle their legal matters.

The practice of law should be a partnership between the attorney and the client, where the client and his or her objectives are the central focus of the representation. We commit to following these guiding principles: Clients will have a direct, personal relationship with their attorney; clients' phone calls will be answered or returned promptly; clients will be fully informed about the status of their case; clients will have input into every major tactical or strategic decision in their case; the cost of the case will be minimized consistent with requirements; and clients will be treated with the respect and dignity that they deserve.

By following these principles and making each client the focal point of the representation, we do everything possible to deliver quality, client-centric legal representation to those who place their trust in our office as their legal services provider.

Hardworking, caring, compassionate, and dedicated to his clients. I strongly recommend Adam!
It was the best decision I made to hire Adam as my attorney, and it was always a pleasure to work with him. He has helped me with many family and real estate related cases in the past 6 years. He is brilliant, honest and genuinely cares about his clients. His focus is what’s best for his clients, not his pocketbook, which I truly appreciate. He was very quick to respond to all my inquiries (both phone calls and email) and provided multiple options of solid advice. I would definitely recommend Adam!

Genuine Representation for all budgets
If you are looking for great legal representation- but feel you are unable to receive that quality at your budget. Don't give up! Hire Adam & his team. I had a very poor experience with prior council that mis-guided me & was only concerned about more money. A friend recommended Adam, and I'm glad she did. Adam, patiently listened to my concerns thru my consult & gave me advice without any pressure to hire him. I felt so comfortable with him & his team. Without hesitation, I chose Adam. At my hardest time in life, facing fear & substantial life changes - they have helped me keep my head up. I thought I wouldn't be able to afford this battle, but he provided an affordable plan to help me move forward. I know your desired outcome isn't always achievable, especially when having to clean up the bad work of another; but I feel comfortable knowing that Adam & his team are doing their best to represent me. I feel as if I have been kept actively involved in all moves & my concerns are promptly addressed. I had a hard time reaching my prior council after payment. This is definitely not the case with Adam. I want to thank Adam & his team for being so great, holding true to his words. Very professional & genuine!

Knowledgable and passionate about helping others
Adam is the best family law attorney I have ever worked with! From day one he has always taken the time to explain everything to me in terms I could easily understand. He is very responsive when I have questions outside of our meetings and he is EXTREMELY knowledgable and professional. I am very grateful for the way him and his staff have made such a difficult situation feel less stressful.

Response from Adam Sudbury January 6, 2023
I am very grateful for your kind words. There are many ways to practice law, but my own preference is to do so in a way that advances the cause of justice and helps people achieve peace through what can be the most difficult times in their lives.

Knowledgeable and Honest
Mr. Sudbury provided me with helpful information about my options with my roommate situation. He confirmed my understanding of what I read online which was important to me so that I could truly do what is best in my circumstances. He was concise and practical. Understanding the choices available to me helps me to consider the best course of action for me and it gave me hope that if I need to to take action there is legal recourse. If I decide to pursue legal action, I will go to him because he made me feel comfortable going to him and confident in his ability to help. I truly appreciate the time and energy he took to address my situation.

Excellent Attorney!
Mr. Sudbury handled a paternity case for me back in 2014 and I couldn’t have been happier with my experience. He is also handling a foreclosure case currently for my family and he has been in touch and on top of everything throughout the entire process! I would recommend this law firm to anyone who is looking for an honest, intelligent, hard working attorney. He knows his stuff and is willing to put up a fight to provide the best outcome possible.

Definitely Relieved
Sometimes we feel like our pleas fall on deaf ears and that we are alone in this world until someone reaches out to you and shows you that there are people out there who actually care. Attorney Sudbury is my hero. He cared enough to respond to my dilemma and I can't thank him enough. I wish him great success and prosperity and he definitely deserves it.

Highly Recommend
After reading some of his well thought out online responses, I chose to pay for a consultation with this attorney even though I am outside of his normal coverage area. It was well worth the time and I WISH he were in my local area as I would have hired him without hesitation. If my case moves to the next level, I will absolutely hire him.

Exceeded my expectations.
Adam and his firm far exceeded my expectations. I felt valued and more importantly heard during our consultation. Not only do I feel like they took the time to get to know me personally, my counsel took nessesary precautions to ensure I wouldnt be overcharged. I definitely feel like this firm stood behind what they said. I received exceptional service and an affordable price. I could not be more pleased with the outcome.

Wise Counsel
Adam Sudbury exemplifies the terms - Wise Counsel and Fierce Warrior. He does not shy from battle, but relishes it, and is not intimidated by the courtroom, other lawyers, or judges. Hire Adam Sudbury if you are looking for the best outcome for your legal situation. I recommend him for all family law matters. Prior to retaining attorney, Adam Sudbury, I was represented by another firm in my family law case. 1 year passed and the case just dragged on with no light at the end of the tunnel. I interviewed several family law firms and a friend recommended Adam Sudbury. He has an exceptional strong eye for details that was a benefit for my case. He also has a very calm demeanor and a very strong sense of organization. Adam was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and efficient. His firm always made time to answer my questions. At a time in my life when nothing was certain, Adam made me feel confident in the decisions that needed to be made. He listened to me and guided me through the unfamiliar territory and legal process. I never felt unsure or uninformed about what was happening. I recommend attorney, Adam Sudbury, without reservation.

Great representation and affordability
We hired Adam 5 years ago to represent us in our foreclosure case. His professionalism is outstanding, Adam is very clear in his appreciation of the case, personal attention, and have a great team working with him. With all this qualities and the affordability he offers, we recommend him without hesitation.
Posted by anonymous | April 28, 2015
BEST RESULTS. He does what he says. HIRE HIM.
We retained Adam to defend us in 7 foreclosure cases. He achieved getting most all cases dismissed and the others are pending dismissal. He is an amazing talent with skill and superior among his piers. He knows the foreclosure law and knows how to find weakness in the law and the opposing lawyer. He is a tiger that breathes to win. We have dealt we the best legal representation around the country and he is exceptional. You want to hire him and have him on your side instead of any one else.

Mortgage foreclosure
Adam is an excellent lawyer who took over our failing case in March of last year. He has vigorously pursued in depth document. Research in winning a dismissal in the original foreclosure. We are now in mediation on an appeal..and feel very confident in his pursuit in fighting the not just the foreclosure but the entire mortgage process we feel was wrong. Thank you Adam for your professionalism.

Adam Sudbury got our second foreclosure case dismissed voluntarily by the plaintif at trial!!
#Boom!! I am blown away by Mr. Sudbury's results. My wife and I have been on the fc journey since January of 2008. I handled my first case and got it dismissed by the plaintif attorneys in January 2010. They refiled in March 2010 and we retained another local attorney for this case. While his fees were very resonable, he would never do anything pro-actively on our behalf. At the end of 2013, I watched Adam win a case for some friends of mine and was very impressed. So in January of 2014, we engaged Sudbury Law. Fast forward, at the end of October 2014, Adam got the lenders attorney to voluntarily dismiss our case one hour and fifteen minutes into what was scheduled as a three hour trial!! Without hesitation, if you know anyone struggling with mortgage default, I would highly reccomend Sudbury Law. Also thank you Adam for your service to this great country as a Reservist!!

Foreclosure Case
Adam Sudbury is a FANTASTIC lawyer!! He is extremely intelligent, honest and and a diligent lawyer. He will give you his honest trained opinion of your case. He explains what can be done and how he plans to proceed. We had a foreclosure case that began in June 2012. We hired a local lawyer from advertising and paid over $6400.00 and all she suggested was to sign the house back to the mortgage company. We knew Adam did family law cases and heard he was great. We did not know he also did Foreclosure Cases. Fortunately he accepted to review the case papers. He immediately found an issue that would help us and took over the case. HE SAVED OUR HOME. The mortgage company dismissed the case. No surprises with Adam Sudbury. Great communication and very professional.
