A Trial Attorney Forged By Fire

Before being promoted to a felony division, Mr. Rieth served as a Lead Trial Attorney for misdemeanor division, where he supervised and mentored several younger attorneys. Mr. Rieth was also selected as a governor-appointed prosecutor for several conflict cases in neighboring Hillsborough County.

Mr. Rieth earned his Juris Doctor degree from Stetson University College of Law, as well as his Certificate of Concentration in Advocacy. Outside the courtroom, Mr. Rieth serves as a strong advocate for safe streets in Greater Tampa, as well as promoting the concept of Vision Zero, which is a world-wide strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries while increasing safe, health, and equitable mobility for all. In his free time, Mr. Rieth enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching Florida Gator and Buccaneer football, traveling, and cycling.

Knowledgeable and caring person.
My husband and I were involved in a serious car accident. The person ran a red light and sheared off the front of our car. Never having a car accident before we felt overwhelmed. Friends, who had a car accident the previous year, advised us to contact an attorney. Adam Rieth became our advisor. But he is so much more than that. We took a weight off of our shoulders. We were allowed to deal with our health issues without all the other issues that occur when you have an accident. Adam has helped us more then I can say. I am thankful that Adam came into our lives. He is not only knowledgeable but he is also a caring person. He made us feel that we were the only case he had.

Outstanding representation
Adam is an absolutely outstanding attorney. Throughout the time he worked with me, he went above and beyond - he made an exceptional effort to thoroughly research the details of my case; he treated me with kindness and respect throughout; and he ultimately achieved an outstanding result on my behalf. I recommend Adam Reith without reservation.

Pain No More!
I was hit by another motorist in an auto accident which left me missing work, with terrible pain/suffering, and with high medical bills. I was not aware of the process to follow or how to go about anything. Attorney Adam Rieth was very communicative, walked me through step by step, and was ultimately able to aid in financial recovery for my case. It was a very seamless and hands off experience for me and I would certainly use Adam's services again and recommend the same to others.

Auto accident
Being in a horrible accident and not knowing what to do Adam has made my experience in the legal process manageable and helpful. He helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel. He has been nothing but responsive and gave me the encouragement to help ease the painful process of an auto accident. If I ever need help again Adam will be the first person I call. If I could give more than 5 stars i would he deserves it.

Knowledgeable, Professional & Resourceful
I consulted Adam on an urgent legal matter. He quickly jumped into action & offered his professional advice. He helped put me at ease quickly. My specific legal need was a better fit for another attorney. Within an hour Adam connected me with one of his counterparts. I highly recommend Adam's services if the need arises. His straightforward & knowledgable advice was very much appreciated.

Best attorney ever!
I just wanted to say that Dan Newlan and Partners is the best Injury Law firm that I’ve ever experienced! I came across Adam Reith and he’s been nothing but an amazing attorney! He handled two accident cases back to back for me and won both!!! I know for a fact that if I ever need him again, I will call him ASAP. He’s been there for me and my family and He always follows up with me. Adam, I just wanted to say thank you for what you have done for me. Words cannot express how thankful I am that you have been there through thick and thin, guiding me in all of my legal matters. You deserve a promotion! This is one honest attorney that I definitely can count on. And if anybody else from my friends or family that need an attorney, I will personally recommend him and Dan Newlan and Partners. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Sincerely, Nadya M. Calero-De Leon P.S. Adam, your the best!

Car accident
there are 3 words to describe Adam Rieth, humble, kind and reliable. Adam was assigned to my case and he delivered. What he promised to do for me he did, even my ramblings did not turn him off, he listened to me while keeping his composure, I can be a handful(sorry). I have decided to recommend Adam to my family and friends in the future. Adam Rieth has been a great Attorney. Thank you for all you did for me.

Professional and Honest
Mr. Rieth handled my auto-accident case with his highest attention by keeping up with every aspect of the case. He kept up to date with medical doctors and handled both insurance companies with honesty and courtesy. He remained in contact with me and walked me through every step of the process. He was always available and answered all my questions in full details. He used telephone and emails to maintain contact but mostly used phone (voice communication) to make sure the message is clear and precise. He is outstanding in what he does and he settled my case with a just settlement. I highly recommend Mr. Rieth for his legal Services.
