I understand what it is like to struggle. I grew up poor and I have worked for everything that I have. My father was a steel worker and my grandfather was a sharecropper. Growing up I wrestled, boxed, played football and baseball. 


I am a veteran and served in the Navy. I worked my way through college washing dishes, delivering newspapers, delivering pizzas, repossessing cars, and bouncing in bars.


I'm married with two daughters. I work hard to give my daughters the opportunities that I never had. 


I have had over 30 jury trials as lead counsel. I have tried cases in state and federal court. I continually work hard to improve my skills as a trial attorney. I attended Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyer college. I read trial practice books, psychology books, communication books; anything that will improve my trial skills. 


Other than the law; I love cigars, baseball and photography. (In that order.)

The Best Defense armed with faith and professionalism
Mr. Adams is a consummate professional with equal parts integrity and vigor, never stopping until he achieves victory. His skills in and out of the Courtroom are unmatched in his profession. When faced with the awesome power of government, there is only one choice to advocate for your cause. There is no greater asset to the legal profession I have met in my nearly 50 years! I cannot say enough to express my appreciation, gratitude and honor having the Kevin Adams defense. Look no further you need no other advocate, he is a one man army, producing far better results than a dozen attorneys.

Get Kevin Adams , on your side at all cost , period!
My name is khupmin . I was accused of sexual battery at a car dealership where I used to work in March of 2012. I am a father of two kids . I am also a foreigner from north east India , living in the great nation of the United States of America with a green card . My life came tumbling down after sexual battery accusation . Since its a felony , I can be deported if convicted . That means can't live in the United States with my family . No more American dreams . I hired a lawyer but was not quite confident about his competency so , I research online a bit more and that's when I came across Mr Kevin Adams ( attorney at law ) I read testimonials of some of his previous trials winning accomplishment and I was convince right there that I found the right attorney that will have the balls to fight for me and above all , WIN !! The case . That's when I approached him to be my attorney . Today , on the 14 th September 2016 , about 4 years later , I was acquitted of sexual battery , a felony , all because of the hard work , tedious preparation , a genius in cross examination, of Mr Kevin Adams ( attorney at law ) . Today , I am a free man , all because of him. I am not being paid to say great things about him . This is my first hand experience , of working with him. If you ever need an attorney for any damn thing in this society , you ought to call Mr Kevin Adams immediately , period . He will get you the best outcome or results for your circumstances or situation . Trust me , you owe it to yourself . Can't thank you enough! Kevin , for all you have done for me and my family . May god bless you abundantly !!!

I have the greatest respect for this man
Kevin Adams has earned my respect not only as a very good attorney but also my friend who has represented me in not only a civil case involving millions of dollars, but as well has represented me in another case where my life was on the line. He never quit believing in my innocence and fought for me all the way. The verdict was NOT GUILTY on all counts. I truly am grateful to him for his professional tenacity and his zeal to fight for his client. He is the only attorney I trust without question. Thanksgiving is a special day or me for I know without Kevin Adams I wouldn't be able to spend it with my family. Highly recommended.

Best Defense attorney around!
This guy truly cares about his clients! He goes all the way and gives you every possible option available! He fights to the end and never gives up! I never seen an attorney shed a tear for a client when i got sentenced to prison! I would recommend him to anybody who does not know their rights and due process! He's worth every penny! Keep up the good work Kevin thats what Attorney are about!

Got in legal trouble...Kevin Adams got me out of legal trouble because I listend
After I was arrested for an A&B I called Kevin Adams because so many people in Oklahoma know him and his track record of being one the best trial attorney's in Oklahoma and his success rate at acquittal. Contacting Mr. Adams was a great decision on my part mostly because I kept my mouth shut and let him do his job. I went to all the court appearances and did as he instructed me. I didn't hound him on the phone or fret or worry because I knew he was capable of getting me acquitted or at least getting me the best "deal" the prosecution was willing to settle on. That's exactly what trusting him and he trusting me to do as I was told got me 100% acquitted of all charges. When I left court the last day and got into my car I remembered a quote from William Blackstone Vinerian Professor of English Law, "show me a man who has not spoken, and I shall set him free." Well Kevin Adams did just that, because I kept my mouth shut, I didn't talk to the police, and followed his instructions
