Great Guy and Wonderful Lawyer
Adam was a great lawyer and was so impressionable on me that I had to seek a review site out for him and write about how great he was for me. I had a very important case against me which was a once in a lifetime mistake. At the time Adam was employed with the Public Defenders office and before Adam was assigned to my case I was passed around to a couple different defenders who didn't seem to care about me or my case, to them I was just another defendant. Once Adam took over my case he sat me down found out all the facts to my case and did extra research for my case which I didn't even think was possible. I was in and out of court for a couple of months for different situations, such as the judge wanted more information about something. Once it came down to the final court date I had my chance to speak my defense and Adam also was able to speak the facts to my case. During his closing statement I was so impressed, he was so professional and accurate. I was very shocked to find that with all the different defendants that he had to deal with at the time at the Public Defenders office that he was so accurate and thorough with the facts. In my opinion I'd say that even the Judge was impressed. In this case it was the difference of going to prison for a long time and not being able to provide for my family or even see my kid grow up or taking a series of rehabilitation classes and house arrest. Adam was able to convince that Judge that it was a mistake that will not ever happen again. Adam was the best lawyer i could ever ask for, if i ever need representation again, which i hope will never happen, i will seek out Adam again for I can trust him, with my life, again.

The prosecutor never feels the knife cut away at their case, they just find it there at the end of the trial."
