| Hired Attorney
Mesh Settlement Attorney
I could not have had a better attorney. There was never a time in the years this case took that he did not answer EVERY and ALL questions and concerns I had. He handled the massive paperwork involved without putting any stress on me, which was very much appreciated. I would recommend Adam and his firm for those woman involved in the Mesh Settlement.

Even though I've never met him in person, Adam is like family.
I've been a client since 2009. My case has been ongoing, and is nearing the final stages here in 2015 (hopefully), but during this entire process I've always known what was going on and even though it may take a little while for Adam to get back to me, the delayed response is so that he can research the question to give me a REAL answer instead of giving me a vague appeasement. When I needed something, he took care of it very quickly. My primary attorney had passed away recently; Adam, as part of my attorney team, stepped up and took care of his clients as well as the primary attorney's obligations and family. This man works with heart, brains, integrity, and doesn't relent on getting things answered or done even in the face of tragedy. I didn't feel like I would be lost after his passing, but that Adam and the law firm were close knit like family and took care of each other and clients/me in the same manner. I would hire Adam and his team again in a heartbeat if something comes up. I would send family and friends to him and know they would be in the best hands. His office staff is friendly, and knowledgeable, and they try to expedite responses to help reassure that all is either going smoothly or they are quick to let you know that there is a hangup. Also, the Christmas cards I've gotten every year has always made them/him feel like family. I also must say they are very patient. I have called with questions or wanting updates so often they know my voice, and not once have they been rude or impatient with me. I have never felt put off or lied to either.
