About James

Learn James’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Patent application
    My main focus is IP strategy and filing patent applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. I have experience in all types of patent applications, including international filings.

    12 years, 450 cases

  2. Business
    I handle various areas of business law for clients, including entity formation, partnership agreements, licensing agreements, and other contracts.

    500 cases

  3. Patent infringement
    I am an advocate for intellectual property. Whether enforcing my clients’ patents or defending my clients against patent infringement claims, AdamsIP has the expertise to represent you in any patent infringement matter.

    12 years, 20 cases

At heart, I am a businessperson who loves working with businesses and learning about my clients’ products, processes, and brands.

Forming an intellectual property strategy with a new client is what I enjoy most about being an intellectual property lawyer.  Working with my clients to identify, solidify, and protect intellectual property assets is why referrals have remained our primary source of new clients.

Before law school I performed extensive technical research in two quite different disciplines—audio electronics and biochemistry. I attended The University of Alabama and the University of Alabama School of Law, where I served on the Law and Psychology Review, Campbell Moot Court Board, and the Bruce B. Siegal Intellectual Property Moot Court Team.

Great IP Legal Team!
Hunter and Stephen were very professional and knowledgeable about my situation. They provided me with a thorough summary and quick resolution. They not only provided me with the information and the tools that I needed to move forward, but they made sure that I understood every detail as it was presented to me. I highly recommend this team for any of your IP legal needs.

CEO, TRUE-See Systems, LLC
Hunter and Stephen were handed a difficult situation where our previous attorney had provided a poorly written patent application and through their skill and hard work, they were able to finally secure our patent was issued. Wonderful work!

Hunter Adams and his associates are great to work with. I have used their service for 3 patents and was successful every time. His attorney Stephen is the best to work with. I could not be more happy with our relationship with this firm. If you need a very talented law firm look no further. Stephen went the extra mile for our patents, and we couldn’t be more happy. Hunter and his firm are the best hands down. So don’t disappoint yourself with the other firms. Go with confidence with Hunter Adams.

Patent Application Success
I highly recommend Hunter. He was efficient and effective in developing, filing and answering objections in my patent application. I plan to continue my association with Adams IP for subsequent filings and any encroachment issues with the patent he helped me obtain.

Best Attorney I've Ever Worked With
Most attorneys I have ever worked with were quick to send a bill, and slow to respond to any questions I had. Most, I could never get on the phone once they received payment. Hunter is the exact opposite. Hunter has helped me so many times I have lost count. I've actually had to ask Hunter to bill me because I felt bad for asking so many questions, and not paying anything in return. Hunter takes a vested interest in the success of your business like no attorney I have ever worked with. I really cannot say enough good things about the guy. Bottom line is I make more money with Hunter than I ever did without him. If you're looking for the best Hunter's your man.

Patent recovery research
Our working together is not over, however, I expect the work attorney Adams will accomplish will perhaps bring new understanding into how new inventions that provide environmental protection and improvement have been obstructed by both large business vestages and subsidized agencies who are resistant to new technology that might otherwise limit or end their own economic interest.

Knowledgeable and Aggressive
Even though our case is not over Mr. Adams has done very well on defending our patent and keeps us informed as to our risk involved as well as what gains we would receive in making a decision. He is a diligent worker and wants to protect the assets of others who have worked hard for them. He isn't a 9-5 worker and forgets about you till the next day. He is there till the job is done kind of guy who is to be respected for his work ethics and for running a great law firm.

Hunter and his staff expertly took control of my intellectual property requirements for my company and were successful in procuring the trademark we needed. I am already rehiring these guys for my next set of needs in their IP wheelhouse for how well things went last time.

The BEST choice for technology start-ups!
Starting a new enterprise has challenges. Entering the internet marketplace with a new product and service, not to mention forming a new company, we had many IP needs. Hunter met with me via video conferencing, answered all my questions, and provided important information on patents, copyrights and trademarks. He has guided and responded in such a timely way that we were able to confidently file our patent and two trademarks. Whether we worked with Hunter or Alexa, the quality of services and knowledge never waivered. What a team! We HIGHLY recommend Hunter for your intellectual property needs.

Trademark Success!
We needed a trademark for our business. Hunter walked us through the entire process. His work resulted in a Registered Trademark that exceeded my expectations.

I have nothing but great things to say about Adams IP!
I was incredibly intimidated going into a patent attorney's office for the first time as an "aspiring" inventor, but Mr. Adams has made me so grateful I did! His enthusiasm, professionalism, and passion for his work goes above and beyond, making the entire process not only easy, but inspiring! I have learned so much from him and feel more than confident that I'm being represented by the very best! I would recommend Adams IP to anyone in need of IP services! They are truly phenomenal!

Hunter made me believe in attorneys again
I was hesitant when I first met Hunter because of all the blood thirsty attorneys out there. I've seen first hand how they are the only ones who win. Hunter restored my faith in honest, hardworking and trustworthy attorneys. I'm so happy I chose him. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field which makes me feel safe and secure. He knows exactly what to do and that's the kind of attorney I want on my side.

"Hunter is simply amazing. He takes time to explain the patent process to his clients in clear, plain language and is amazingly patient. He is not only a great lawyer, but a great person. I would highly recommend Hunter to all of my clients!"
Patent application Attorney | Jan 26
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Hunter is an excellent and knowledgeable attorney in the area of patents and trademarks. Our firm does not specialize in intellectual property law, and when we have questions, we turn to Hunter as our expert resource. We also regularly refer clients who need help in these areas to him, and we've always had great feedback. One client in particular profusely thanked us for connecting her with Hunter, saying that he had been a great help and a delight to work with. I have no reservations in recommending Hunter for anyone with questions in these areas."
