They are very knowledgeble in every single detail. This was our first time working with a lawyer and could have been very stressful but because of their experience with Bankruptcy cases they helped us feel more at ease.

Top 10 Attorney
Jack is definately one of the top 10 attorneys that I know today. He is meticulous, timely, and responsible. I have enjoyed his counsel on a number of items over the years and I have found him to be beyond reproach. I highly recommend Jack to anyone needing an honest attorney.

Attention to Detail and Personalization
I had to file bankruptcy case and there was no other choice for me then to go back to Adams Law group and work with them. There are many fly-by-night attorneys out there that are willing to take your money but not explain the process and personalize things to your needs- all of the attorneys as well as paralegals and assistants are amazing at this office and would not take my legal needs Anywhere else. The Adams are also friends as we have lived in the same area so a lot of us went to school together! What a nice feeling being able to have that comfortability…

Jack Adams is honest, knowledgeable, genuinely friendly, tenacious and actually gives a damn. Not many lawyers are. He's great!
Jack Adams is an attorney who knows his stuff and is tenacious in pursuing his clients best interest. He won't play you; he is totally upfront and honest. If he says it, you can take it to the bank. He is genuinely friendly but he won't sugar coat the facts just to string you along. If he takes your case, its because he believes in you and intends to win.

Always listened
I had a long drawn out disabilty case and my old attonrney didn't hardly tell me anything that was going on. I'd wait for months without so much as a phone call. A friend told me about Jack and I am so happy I switched to him! Jack not only knows how to work through the MESS of the Social Security Administration, but he also knows how to keep a client in the loop! Sometimes you get so sick of the waiting game with Social SEcurity and I would call him all upset and Jack would just listen and understand. He cared that I was in pain and he cared that we had no money. I felt like he really did care about how I and my family did and that he really was fighting for me. Good man and good attorney.

After an experience that cost us over $1K extra on our filing (which was closed without discharge) we turned to the Adams Law Group based upon a prior recommendation. Before filing, we were not able to use their services, unfortunately. I wish we had hired them all along. Our brief time spent with Jack was very professional and very comforting. Having come from a long, bad experience, we were slightly leary of what would be behind the next door. Talking with Jack was a huge sigh of relief for us. He explained everything to us and what all the possible scenarios could be and how we need to approach this in order to reach our desired result. We trusted what he told us and took the steps that he mentioned to us and how to resolve our case. We did as he requested and our case was discharged in less than a week. No hassles, no unforseen circumstances, no surprises. Simple, courteous, friendly and helpful. Although our matter was "simple" to fix, he treated us as if we had the weight of the world on our shoulders and he wanted to to do what he could to take care of it. I cannot recommend Jack and his team enough.

Honest, personal, has client's best interests at heart, expert in his field
I have known Jack Adams for many years and have utilized his services as necessary. In every case, he is a true professional. He is honest, candid, no non-sense delivery and has the client's best interest at heart, not his own. He will not pressure you, or advise you in any manner contrary to what is right and true. His services are delivered in a responsive, timely manner and with a nice touch of humor added in for FREE! I would recommend this individual to anyone seeking services in his areas of expertise (and for some services he will offer if asked which most attorneys are equipped to provide).

The Adams Law Firm Experience
I have been using Jack's services for a long time now and he has always come through for me, especially in critical situations. He is very friendly and actually takes a personal interest in the outcome of cases. I would trust him with nearly all of my concerns. I highly recommend him 100%.

GREAT Lawyer!!!!
Jack is without doubt the best lawyer I have ever come across! He has helped me two times now in some very unfortunate and serious situations. He helped me in a kind and respectful way. Made me feel that he cared about my situation and was going to do everything he could to help. My outcome both times exceeded my expectations. Amazing and will continue to go back to him.

Great Choice
When my wife and I experienced financial problems after she got laid off, we had no choice but to file bankruptcy. I had no idea what to expect. After talking to Jack, we felt much better about our decision. He really took the time to walk us through the process & answer all of our questions. I wouldn't wish our situation on anyone else, but we would recommend Jack & his team to everyone that I know!

Poor customer service
I’ve left numerous messages with this office with no return calls my case is still active and this case has been going on for a year! Do not give them your business as they take your money and run with no call backs. Notified my trustee of their behavior and ready to file complaint with Mo bar
