Best Attorney in Arizona
Ashley Adams is by far the most educated attorney in her field. The whole process from beginning to end, was a very smooth and non stressful time for me, having Ashley as my attorney. I can't not thank Ashley and her team enough, for having my case fully dismissed. If you want a honest, hardworking approachable attorney, this is the attorney for you .

LIFE SAVER!
Ashley and the team down Adams & Associates, PLS were a complete lifesaver and Godsend for me. If you require effective, professional and powerful legal support and/or representation, then you will be very glad of you choose Ashley or her team. From the moment she presented with me, my anxiety and nervousness went away, and was replaced with sound comfort and solid ease. Ashley was able to negotiate a resolve for me that would have never been possible if I had been alone or with a less competent legal representative. In the legal world, justice system and/or court system; your entire experience, process & future hinges on who you have as legal counsel - DO NOT think you can make a budgeted or cheap decision when it is your future, wealth, family, & freedom hanging in the balance = the best legal decision you’ll ever make is to have Ashley, and the Adams & Associates , PLS in your corner; I know it was my best decision.

Ashley was an amazing lawyer in helping me in my case. She helped in every detail I asked about and more. She always called me back quickly if she did not answer, was very good at contacting me of any detail in my case changing, also at making sure I had ever document regarding my case. I'm so grateful to have had her as my lawyer. I wouldn't be where I am right now if it wasn't for. Thank you.

This is not my first time retaining Ashley Adams It’s the Second time. Why because I trust her she’s a amazing attorney and amazing person first. My son Got himself in to big trouble facing major time. And I will never forget I text her and told her what happen because I was so upset and scared and didn’t know what to do it was 9p at night I wasn’t thinking totally forgot about the time and how late it was And guess what she called me right away and she even talk to the police officers that was there at the time of the arrest and thinking about that now she could have said Alicia call me tomorrow during normal business hours!! But she didn’t she has been my rock, why because I knew my son was in good hands.And even thought I still had a balance from the first case which was a year ago she still took the case and worked with me on the financial end of things and she worked tirelessly as if she had all her money upfront! I’m just so grateful that she agreed to help me again.Its just like a miracle from God it took a weight off my shoulders because I knew she would fight for my son and she would do her very best. I didn’t have to worry about that part.That help me sleep at night for 8 months this case went on. And her office staff are amazing,Ok really quick when I first called the office this time around I was expecting the office manager that I knew but she has moved on. Which was a big disappointment to me because she was always so nice and very helpful. I would call and she could answer many of my questions and was very Patient with me. But wow the new office manager Is even more amazing it was no loss at all ! I can’t say enough about Kathy she’s the most Sweetest person I mean so supportive and very knowledgeable and on top of things and Kind Kind I know I said that twice I have to stress that! Great attracts great so I should have known that she would be equally as wonderful or better. There not your every day walk into a office good hospitality.I mean above and beyond these people.The whole office is friendly and kind And just ready to help as you walk in the door And once again Mrs. Ashley Adams pulled my son through he is out and right back where he started from before he was arrested. She cares and it shows in her work And that’s the kind of attorney everyone needs on their side. I thank God for her every night because he put her in my life to help give my son a second chance at his future and me a second chance with my son. Thats right reads, that should say it all right there! I can say enough about Adams & associates I’ve been burned before and I was so nervous Looking for a attorney but I am so glad I found her. I will always call her with no hesitation if I need legal counsel. Hopefully I’ll never need her as a attorney again!! I can call just to say hello.
