Adam Zickerman
I have worked with Adam for two years on a variety of matters, but mostly criminal work. Adam impressed me beyond measure. First, his work ethic is incomparable. I have never met anyone who works as hard on his cases to deliver justice as he does. Mr. Zickerman’s level of professionalism is unmatched and impeccable. Last, but certainly not least, Mr. Zickerman cares. He cares about his cases, his victims, his co-workers, and me. In my opinion, that is a quality extremely hard to find in today’s society. Anyone would be fortunate to have Mr. Zickerman as their attorney.

Highly recommended
Adam has helped me with my estate planning. He has walked me through the process and put me on track to have a solid will and trust in place to cover multiple scenarios. He has been easy to work with and has taken the time to explain how the process works all while keeping the lawyer talk to a minimum. I will absolutely use him for any future legal needs and I recommend him highly.
