BEST LAWYER IN Columbus,Ohio
Adam has always been there for my best interest and he is always prepared for court dates. I was facing a lot of time for something I didn't do and Adam made sure that I didn't do the time that the prosecutor was trying to give me and I got found not guilty on all counts... Now if that's not a good lawyer I don't know what it is!! He stands up for what's right and will always burn for the best interest of his clients.... He really is one of the best lawyers around Columbus Ohio hands down!!!!!

Fast, Efficient and Responsive
I was involved in an altercation with a powerful elected official, who really likes to throw his weight around in the community with powerful connections. After over 3 months of no progress, I fired my previous attorney and hired Adam and his firm. Ever since the first night I talked to attorney Fuhrmann I felt at ease. She and Adam worked methodically on how to handle my case, they understood that this case was going to be trickier than usual. They were not intimidated by this person and his family’s connections. Before I hired Adam the prosecutor suggested 90 days in jail. Adam was able to close the case in like 3 weeks with NO JAIL TIME. They will also get this taken off my record in time. There is a reason he is a 5-star Columbus attorney and he also drove over 2 hours to represent me. Words cannot describe how thankful I am to have had this amazing firm represent me.

Top Constitutional Attorney
Adam Burke is very knowledgeable of the law. After reviewing the police video dash cam in my F2 possession case, Same found 4 violations in the search. Instead of a best prosecution offer of 4.5 years prison, After a motion to suppress, the State came down to 8 years with probation. No automatic jail time. I would rather have my future in my hands than the States!

Reviewfor Adam
We have had two cases with Adam. One was a DUI charge, that he was able to plea down to a non moving violation, physical control. He demonstrated knowledge of DUI charges, and investigated the circumstances surrounding the original arrest, and got the plea deal. The second case was a felony theft charge. and he did an excellent job presenting the case and getting a payment plan to avoid the charge being on my daughter's record as long as she makes the payments to the court by 2016.

We highly recommend Adam Burke.
Adam has represented our family on domestic/civil cases, child support cases, and criminal cases. We have retained his services since 2010. He went above and beyond on all of our cases and we could not have predicted as great of an outcome as we received. He even managed to get a criminal offense expunged. He was so knowledgeable and helpful. Also, most definitely affordable. We will never be represented by another attorney. We HIGHLY recommend his services.
