Highly Recommend
Adam was extremely helpful in his preparation of our last wills and testaments. The communication from his office was timely. He was patient and explained the process and answered our questions thoughtfully. The fee was fair. He was very thorough in his review of documents, accurate, and helpful. I certainly recommend his services to others.

family law
I hired Mr Lutzke to represent t me which he done an excellent job. He represented me with case dealing with visitation and custody. This was a case I thought I had no hope of having a fair trial. With Mr. Lutzke he is my family attorney for life I'm so impressed with his knowledge and expertise about the current law and new revised law. Wonderful attorney which I highly recommend.

Excellent experience
My case was turned over to Adam after my family law attorney retired. How I wish I had found Adam to begin with! I had such a pleasant experience with Adam and he was very effective in communicating with my ex husband and keeping both of us calm treading through what was left of an agreed entry. He also handled routine matters, like contacting the court on a matriculation matter, and his fee was nominal-unlike my prior attorney. Adam was truly a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional.

Great job!
Adam helped me get guardianship of my elderly mother. My mother has dementia and had neglected to write a will. We were at a point where nothing could be accomplished without a legal guardian. Adam walked me through the whole process, explained everything in great detail. He was right beside me in court and everything went flawlessly. Adam was quick to respond to emails and text messages. Adam was very patient with my ignorance of the situation, I couldn't have asked for a better guy to be by my side.

I couldn't have made a better choice.
I had a divorce and custody issue, and Mr. Lutzke was awesome! He keeps you up to date and well informed. I honestly am thankful that I came across Adam, he made it easy and he's always on top of your case. A great guy and an awesome lawyer!

Highly highly recommended
I don't think that I can find the words to explain how wonderful my experience was with Adam representing us ( my son and I) in our child support case. Adam always showed compassion and professionalism. Whether I contacted him by phone, text or even email he always answered in record time and was always there. His knowledge of family law gave me the reassurance I needed to feel secure and to know that I made the right choice in picking him to walk with us through this emotional process. Adam also went over and beyond with making sure all documents were just right for our hearings. He showed great patience when dealing with the courts and with the respondent. I actually tear up a little bit when I think about how emotionally draining this case was but how Adam stood by us and stayed adamant. Overall I can't enough good things about my experience. If I ever need anything in regards to my child support case or even general family law concerns.... I would definitely go back to Adam, without a doubt! He is... cliche' as this might sound.... the best and I will never forget him and what he did for us.  He will always have a place in my heart

Excellent Experience
Adam was referred to us by a family friend to assist with a modification of child support and visitation. He was very knowledgeable, consistent with communication, explained things clearly, and was patient with my questions. He respected my wishes as his client and helped me come to a peaceful resolution of my case. Adam even took the time to speak with me about legal matters I had prior to even meeting him or retaining him. He is very professional and I will definitely use him again should I need any legal assistance in the future. His retainer and fees are extremely reasonable.

Solid representation
Adam did a great job walking me through my custody case. Any questions or concerns I had he addressed. Adam's communication between hearings and mediation was more than what I could ask for. He is very knowledable of family law and I would recommend him to anybody that is going through any family law situations.

Handled sticky divorce with child well
Adam took over my divorce when I found out that it would be contested. There were no custody disputes so I can not speak to that. The case was settled through mediation at relatively low cost in comparison to many other firms. He was always responsive and helped to ease the stress where possible.

Excellent representation
Detailed oriented. Remembered my case and details. I didn't feel like I had to explain everything again to him every time we met. Proficient in law and great attorney in the court room.

Both responsive and helpful.
Although, the scope of work Adam performed for me was not very complex--just a will and medical directives--he was knowledgeable, responsive and friendly. I certainly would and I have recommended him to others.

Excellent Experience Developing Estate Planning Documents
We were referred to Adam through a family friend. Adam helped us generate multiple estate plannning documents. Adam assisted us with wills, power of attorney, and similar documents. He and his assistant worked quickly, answered all of our questions, and alleviated our concerns with subject matter that is not pleasant to discuss.

Easy to work with in a difficult time
I needed to find a lawyer that paid attention to my situation and my needs when it came time to file for divorce. Adam was wonderful to work with - sympathetic, very responsive and very knowledgeable. He treated me and my situation as unique. I never felt like he was just going through the motions. Nor did I ever feel nickel and dimed. I always felt like Adam and his support staff were on-top of the situation. They provided updates and information in a very timely manner. Divorce was definitely not the outcome I ever envisioned for my marriage, but Adam made the entire process as smooth and easy as possible.

Excellant job!!!
Adam has always been there to help and give advise whenever I need him. He makes me feel like I am his most important client and not just another folder on his desk. I would recommend Adam to anyone (and have several times).

Adam Lutzke's Review
Adam met our needs and did so in a professional manner. We needed a prenuptial agreement and a will. He took care of both items for us. Adam was approachable while maintaining professionalism. We would recommend Adam to our friends and family.

Good Choice for a bad situation
I recently went through a divorce, and Mr. Lutzke was friendly, professional and kind throughout the process. He knew his family law and knew what needed to be done and handled the case promptly and fair. When I needed him he was just a phone call or email away. Though it was a bad time he made it just a little bit easier, by me not having to worry about the ins and outs of the legal system.
