A Lifesaver
Attorney Adam Wax was everything and more than I could ask for. I was referred to him by a friend and thankfully so. He was beyond assisting with my case, even working with me from outside of the country! He went out of his way to handle documents that I would not be able to have access to because of the distance. Without his guidance and help,my case would have been monstrous and detrimental to me. I can't even begin to express my gratitude - all I can say is HIRE HIM! He will literally go above and beyond whatever your needs are to make sure that your case is a success. I absolutely hate doing reviews, but I can't hide this testimony and I recommend that you hire him because you will only be happy that you did. I'd hire him again for any case in a heartbeat because of his dedication- sincerely.

A lawyer for everyone
Adam Wax was a helpful lawyer for our family when we did not know where to turn. His explanations were very comforting and he was always there for us in and out of court. No question was unanswered. He kept us updated on everything and found the right solutions.

review of mr. wax
Over the last 30+ years of living and doing business in this city I have dealt with many attorneys and I have yet to meet one as competent as Mr. Wax. Polite, punctual, empathetic and extremely knowledgeable. I send all of my associates to him. To be honest I sleep better at night knowing that he is my attorney. If in need, I "highly" recommend his services.

Absolutely Amazing and Professional!
I hired Adam Wax as my attorney when I was first thinking about starting my business. Naturally, I had a lot of questions and concerns coming into it. Mr. Wax sat with me and demonstrated not only his knowledge of the subject, but considerable patience as well which immediately eased my concerns. He made me feel not only knowledgable myself about the process, but extremely comfortable as well. Adam is a bright attorney that will guide someone in not only the right direction, but the right direction for THEM. And, in my opinion, that is the most important skill to have. I will continue to go to him for legal guidance, as well as recommend him to any of my friends or colleagues.
