Hire him
Hopefully I won’t ever have to but I’ll gladly hire him again. He just cares about your case. Other lawyers just want your money and it to be over whether you got what you wanted or not. No jail no felony for me. He’ll get you what you want

NOT GUILTY
NOT GUILTY were the words I heard after jury deliberation! Adam is seasoned, sharp, quick, witty, and extremely knowledgeable! He strategically sliced and diced both the state investigating agency and the state prosecution team, while simultaneously dismantling the whole narrative that resulted in the charge against me. His words resonated with the jury! My family and I will be forever grateful for the hard work and dedication he put into my case. He wasn’t just a typical defense attorney, Adam truly cares about the jury seeing the truth and I am a free man today because of it. Thank you Adam!

Outstanding criminal defense
Adam saved my life, plain & simple. Any attorney can negotiate plea deals. Adam is a trial attorney. He had the judge asking him about legal precedent in open court! I was astonished. Very methodical and really smart. Not one detail got by him. Truly impressive performance.

No need to look any further!
I just want to say how grateful and appreciative I am for Adam Banner and his firm. He is very professional, thorough, works hard for his clients and leaves no stone unturned. He was always getting back to me in a timely manner. What gave me confidence and for me to have a peace of mind about Adam. I went into his firm to sign some paperwork and I asked the staff about Adam. They told me, “Let Adam be your big brother. Stand behind him and let him fight for you”! Adam by far is the best defense attorney in the state of Oklahoma. Adam is worth every cent. I looked at the price as an investment for my life. If you are looking for a defense attorney who will fight for you there is no need for you to look any further than Adam Banner and his firm! My family and I are so thankful for him and his services! You’re the best Adam!

POWERHOUSE
Wow, thank you... Thank you for saving my livelihood, my sanity, my everything... Words can not express how far Adam and his superstar team exceeded my expectations... Adam took on a last minute case for me and literally made magic happen. Madison, she may be small in stature but do NOT let that fool you... I prematurely prejudged her capabilities by this alone, but she is a beast in the court room, YOU GO GIRL!!! With this being said, I HAVE to give credit where credit is due. This is the ultimate powerhouse, dream team you need if you're in need of legal advice or legal services. I am beyond grateful for them and can not say thank you enough for all you have done for me. Thank you ❤️

THE BEST
I have sat down multiple times to write this , however I couldn’t find the words and tears would start to flow! The fact of the matter is that Adam Banner is the reason my husband is coming home. Adam and his team are simply the best that money can by! Adam is committed to his clients, he takes it personal. He and his team always kept me up to date on any changes. Adam truly cares about his clients and after almost two years of him representing my husband. I consider his family! You absolutely will not find a better defense attorney! He is worth every penny! Do not take a chance with another defense attorney! You will not regret it.

Outstanding Lawyer
After about 8 months going nowhere with my previous lawyer, Adam took over on short notice and did a great job mitigating the damage. Couldn't be more satisfied with the work ethic, transparency, and knowledge of Mr. Banner.

Best of the Best
I feel Mr. Banner is very upfront with his clients. He is very professional and tells it like it is. Adam is compassionate and communicates with his clients, keeping them informed all the way through. He said something to us the day he was able to get our son, probation rather than incarceration, that I will never forget. “I like to Under Promise and Over Deliver”.

Adam Banner is the best attorney by far!
Adam and his staff are extremely professional. He responds quickly to emails or will get on a call if needed and shows empathy and care for his clients. He’ll walk you through the process and answer any questions you have. I am extremely pleased with the result we got for my case. He is an excellent attorney that passionately defends his clients. I would trust him with my life.

Best Criminal Defense Attorney!
I recently retained Mr. Adam Banner for a criminal matter and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. From the very beginning, Adam was professional and attentive, taking the time to thoroughly understand the details of my case and providing valuable insight into the legal process. With his extensive knowledge of the law and skillful negotiation, Adam was able to successfully persuade the prosecutor to reduce my charge from a felony to a misdemeanor. I am incredibly grateful for Adam's expertise and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal representation.

Thank you!
Adam Banner is simply elite, a true esquire, in his field. He and his team are the epitome of professionalism. You get what you pay for and Adam was worth every penny. In a case that spanned over three years, with 25 to life, he showed steadfast determination, a proactive drive to going for the answers, not waiting. His efforts resulted in my case being dismissed; freedom is not free. Adam understands this and has a heart for those that decide to trust in him. He is honest. He has more integrity than most people I’ve meet in my lifetime. He is a bulldog that will protect his clients, period. Thank you Adam as you literally saved my life and, for me, thank you God for putting this man in my life!

Adam’s the Lawyer you need
Adam Banner kept me out of Jail. I’m great full to Adam and his team, they help me through the hardest time in my life facing Jail time and with Adam’s attention to detail and learning his opponent he was able to stay two steps ahead of the DA. He kept me informed of the progress and made sure to let me know what he needed me to do and he advised me but ultimately left the decision of what to do up to me. I appreciate all his hard work and I can see why he’s one of the top lawyers and worth it. Thanks Adam and Team

State Dismisses Case: 5 Counts of Sexual Battery Allegations
“. . . Therefore, the state dismisses all counts (counts 1 through 5) of this indictment . . . this court is adjourned.” These are the words I heard just yesterday morning spoken by a district judge presiding over my case. Standing beside me was my criminal attorney, Adam Banner. Behind him was the full force and staff of The Law Offices of Adam R. Banner, P.C. (www.oklahomalegalgroup.com). I can promise you this is not an advertisement; but rather, was my life, the one I chose to place in Mr. Banner’s hands. Being wrongfully accused of five (5) counts of Sexual Battery is life-altering and extremely scary. Each count carries up to 10 years in the state penitentiary, with an aggregate total up to 50 years in prison if convicted. I had to find an attorney who was a fighter, a successful winning fighter who’s intelligent, strategic, and knows what it takes to fight and win complex legal cases. After my first consultation meeting, I knew Adam Banner was the lawyer I needed on my side to fight and protect my right to remain innocent. This morning, after 5 years of fighting, I’m sitting here writing a positive review of an attorney. Sounds crazy, right? But here's a fact - Adam Banner was and will always be known as the attorney who fought for and won the dismissal of my case, the five (5) counts of Sexual Battery allegations. Every person’s case is different as no two are alike. But, if you’re looking for someone to stand next to you and fight for you every step of the way, click on the above link, call his office and setup an appointment for a consultation. One thing you'll hear from him is the truth. What will it hurt? Who knows, one day you too may be able to hear your presiding judge proclaim, “Case Dismissed.”
