Great Results in Construction Litigation
Adam recently represented our construction company in a contract case with great results. Adam is obviously very knowledgeable and appropriately aggressive. He was also realistic in letting us know the strengths and weaknesses of our case and he took the time to explain things to us so we understood what was going on. Can't say enough about Adam and his firm. I highly recommend him.

Adam Pugh Is a life saver.
I hired Adam in 2014 to handle my bankruptcy case. I was apprehensive about the process because I had never needed a lawyer before. However, Adam quickly put my mind at ease and was very reassuring throughout my entire case. From the day I hired her until the day of the hearing, Adam was with me every step of the way. From responding to phone calls to answering questions, he was very professional, very knowledgable and also responsive to me as a person. In short, he made me feel confident that my case would have a positive outcome. I was not merely a case to him, but a person and he recognized that. Since then , I have recommended him to four other people. Everyone that I recommended all said that he treated them with courtesy and respect. To this day I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice or counsel.

Thorough, Savvy, Great Litigator!
We hired him 15 minutes before our hearing! He is super responsive and extremely well versed in the fact based law approach. During the trial/hearing, he was significantly better prepared than opposing counsel and won every motion and objections for us! We used him for a fairly simply matter, but he is on retainer for me for any business and commercial issues that arise. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Set proper expectations and delivered
Adam and his team did a great job on a recent case for me. I felt overwhelmed before hiring him but he was able to take the reigns and deliver better results than I initially expected. I recommend the team if you are needing quality legal help.

An Attorney with a Backbone and Moral Compass
You never thought you would see "attorney", "backbone" and "moral compass" in the same sentence, did you? Yet, that describes Adam in finality. When going to Adam, we had a very trick case. We weren't a powerhouse of an organization, we didn't have financial assets to hand over immediately, we only had an issue . . . a serious issue. Adam listened to us, he gave advice, he corralled us when we needed corralling and pushed us when we needed to take a risk. Adam never made us feel like it was about the bottom line. He was patient with his time and never left our side on any issues, small or large. He answered us quickly, and accurately, and thoroughly. From the first phone call, he provided much needed relief. He gave us insight we lacked, explaining our issue in terms we could understand. We sleep at night knowing Adam is at our side, defending our rights. The world needs more attorneys like Adam . . . or you can just hire him. Your choice.

Highly Recommend
My company has been working with Adam for the last few years. We switched from a law firm that we felt never really had time for us or gave us the attention we felt we deserved. No matter what the issue, case, or question we may have, Adam is always there to give us the best advice for the situation. We trust Adam with all of our business legal needs from contracts to debt recovery. Adam is trustworthy, responsive, and makes you feel like you are his only client. I highly recommend Adam and his law firm.

Thankful to have Adam on my side.
I've always shied away from working with attorneys in an attempt to resolve any issues myself. This of course, was prior to working with Adam. He has helped me on several occasions. From simplifying the complexity of the IRS to getting me through various ventures; on and offline. Adam's experience coupled with his exceptional service has been a blessing for my family and me. I look forward to having him and the firm on my side for many years to come.

I would Recommend Adam Pugh
I have worked with Adam Pugh for the past eight years. I am a partner in a Real Estate Firm, and in a Property Management company. Adam has represented me and my firms on multiple occasions. From HOA issues, TREC complaints, LLC formations, and general counsel. Adam is the first person I call and the only attorney I trust with my business. I feel he always has my best interest at heart, even if I don't want to hear it. I strongly recommend Adam to my family, friends, and clients.

I give Adam Pugh the highest possible recommendation
Adam has been helping me for years on various legal issues associated with my business. He has been successful with everything from collections to defending me against a couple of frivolous lawsuits. Adam is always available and ready to explain things in a way that is easy to understand. All it takes is a phone call to Adam to get top notch legal help. i highly recommend Adam Pugh.

Adam Pugh Has Been A Consistent Asset
I've been lucky to have Adam in my corner for years now. He has been a consistent asset to my business and my go to guy for any problems that may arise. He has specifically helped me tremendously with Employment Law issues. As a small business owner I don't exactly have the money for an HR person and have little understanding of the nuances myself, so having someone I can come to with questions and to solve issues before they happen such as by drawing up legal termination papers for me have been has been a big help to my business. I hope to have Adam on my team for a very long time.

Highly recommend!
I have worked with Adam and his firm for several years now and I couldn't be happier with their service and knowledge about real estate and association law. Adam has always been available for myself and my clients. I would gladly recommend his services to anyone.

Professional, Friendly, and Effective!
Adam represented me in a business law dispute back in July of 2014. He was a referral from a close family friend who had worked with his firm several years ago. Adam was extremely knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable about my case, as it was weighing pretty heavily on my mind. After a few months, I got the good news that we got a favorable decision, and I was able to finally bring closure to this major setback. I would definitely recommend Adam and use him again.

Has represented several businesses for me, on multiple occasions.
Adam has been a go-to resource for me for several years. My business has clients of it's own, to whom I comfortably refer to Adam for Legal advice. Adam's "meta" advice about when settle and when to push has saved me thousands of dollars. I appreciate that advice that looks at overall structure and strategy, and then guides on the micro-decisions. Highly recommend.

I had a great experience with Adam Pugh and his law firm. They were great and always available when I needed them. They helped walked me through the process and obviously knew what they were doing. I am very glad I choose Adam Pugh.

Efficient knowledgable attorney
Adam walked me through the entire process of forming a non profit organization including the extensive procedures that the IRS require for the approval of a 501(c)3 entity. I would recommend him to anyone and will see him again for future legal needs.

VERY Pleased with my experience with Adam!
It is never fun to have to go through litigation but I really don't know what I would have done without Adam there to represent my team. He came highly recommended from a family friend and I cannot say enough good things about the process with Adam and his team. He did a great job of keeping me in the loop with the progress of my case and always made sure to explain the legal jargon in terms I could understand. Thank you again Adam for all your hard work!
