Terrific attorney
Temani is extremely talented. I initially hired her to handle about 10 traffic tickets that I had. She got them all Dismissed! A year later she got me out of jail when I was in a bind. I highly recommend her

A WOMAN OF ACTION
Temani put my mind at ease. I hired her after having a bad experience with another attorney. Now I am fully confident that my case will be handled in the most effective way!!!!!

Simply Amazing...
Attorney Temani Adams is nothing short of amazing. I've previously hired attorneys to work on legal matters such as tickets before; however, the level of service and communication rendered was exceptional. Ms. Adams not only researched the matter to provide further insight into the matters, but also to ascertain what stance she would take. Subsequently, she got unknown warrants lifted with little to no restitution, and the tickets dismissed. Thank you Temani for a job well done and for having a passion for what you do! - Cleveland

Finally!!!
Had a case that several attorney's tried to get me to plea out and take the time. I explained to everyone I will not. The I met Miss Adams, She took on the case and after many trips back and forth to court ALL CHARGES were dropped. Thank you Miss Adams.

My family hired Ms. Adams to represent my brother on a drug charge. She did an awesome job of proving that my brother had nothing to do with any drugs, and got the charges dismissed.
