Highly Recommended
I contacted Mr. Soorholtz one morning and he answered my call at that time. By 12pm that day we were meeting and discussing what needed to be done. I had a deadline to complete a work rebuttal within 24hrs and he was able to complete it and submit it by the deadline of 24hrs. He worked quickly and still produced quality work. He explained the process to me and even showed up with me to hand deliver. I highly recommend his services.

Outstanding, prompt service
I was referred to Mr. Soorholtz for help in clearing up an ancient, minor legal issue in Texas. Adam clearly knows him way around the Bell County courthouse, and resolved my situation the same day I first reached out to him to guidance. I rarely write internet reviews, but was very impressed and wanted to share my experience. He seems very sharp and professional. Thumbs up.

Adam is straightforward and honest and is focused on doing his very best for his client(s). He helped our family tremendously and we are forever grateful for his professionalism and diligence. May god bless him and bring him every opportunity and success his way.

Trustworthy and timely
Adam helped our family settle an estate...we thought with a will, everything would be easy. After a review, Adam found numerous areas that would be potential stumbling blocks in court. Adam was instrumental in navigating the probate process and making sure details were completed before going to court. Adam handled the details without delay and excels in communicating clearly. He cut through the legal jargon, putting everything in terms my wife and I could understand. When you need an attorney, Adam is a good lawyer to have representing your interests.

This man is so incredibly rude. As a victim of domestic violence, I was referred to his office in an attempt to obtain a protective order for myself and my children. In the most patronizing tone I've ever heard, this man told me he declined my case because the abuse "wasn't bad enough" He said the judge wouldn't issue the protective order unless my spouse had "beat the brakes off of me". Completely unprofessional. This is exactly why domestic violence gets out of hand. People cannot get the help they need before it is too late. This man should lose his job. In no way is he an advocate for any victim of domestic violence.

One of the rudest most uncaring humans I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with. His attitude is the worse. Mine is a domestic abuse case, that was picked up by the state of Texas, the judge ordered an emergency protective order. I wanted it extended. This man that beat me, broke my hand and finger. He beat me with a fan. Everything Soorholtz, was defending the jerk that hurt me. When he called me, the first thing he said to me was " so i hear you got the crap beat out of you a few weeks back. Completely unprofessional. If there was a 1/2 a star he would get that rating, he actually deserves NO STARS.
