Well Versed Attorney
Adam has not only represented myself but also my family members that I have referred. He has handled a wide variety of dealings for us including: real estate, small business transactions, and estate planning. On all occasions he effectively communicated with us throughout the process so there where no surprises. Adam is one of the more tenacious and honest Attorneys I have encountered and this is why I highly recommend Adam to anyone seeking legal help.

We felt very comfortable dealing with Adam. He kept us well informed during our case. We felt that the case was handled with great care and in turn gave us a good outcome. Would you Adam and his firm again.

I have worked with Adam on a professional level for over 4 years now and have been completely happy with the level of service and knowledge that he offers, everytime I have a client with a need for his services. I meet with new clients on a consistent basis who don't have a will or continuation plan in place and Adam has been more than accomodating to me and my new clients. I use him for my personal needs as well. Spot on and he comes highly recommended.

Endorse Adam
Personal injury Attorney | Jun 06
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse Adam. He is a highly skilled attorney that is well respected in the legal community."
Lawsuits and disputes Attorney | May 17
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer."
Lawsuits and disputes Attorney | May 01
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I've had the opportunity to work with Adam on the same side of cases, as well as opposed to him in several cases. He is smart, diligent, and efficient. Adam is also practical as a lawyer - he is interested in getting to the bottom line and solving a problem, rather than racking up fees. That last point is probably one of the most important qualities in a lawyer, and, frankly, it's somewhat rare. While many attorneys think in terms of raging battles and legal disputes, Adam thinks in terms of getting to an efficient solution to a real-world problem."
Commercial real estate Attorney | Apr 30
Relationship: Co-worker
"I have worked with Adam Long on several matters. I have always been impressed with his ability to help his clients accomplish their goals. Adam truly understands the 'big picture' and thinks globally. These skills are essential to helping a client navigate any situation to reach the most favorable possible resolution."
