I hired Richard Adams following a vehicle accident involving a fatality after our probate lawyer recommended a consultation. It was an extremely fragile time for our family. Mr Adams was professional and kind in all proceedings. He was instrumental in settling fairly with the insurance companies.

The only attorney you'll ever need
I've wanted to write a recommendation for Richard Adams for a while. I've put it off because I wanted to find the perfect words to say how much this man has impacted my life. He has been my attorney for years and has successfully handled several cases. Some issues were more serious than others, but no matter how large or small, Mr. Adams always gets the job done. The impact he has had for my family is life-changing. The times when people need legal help are often difficult and stressful. Imagine the comfort of having an attorney to call who is honest, trustworthy, patient, and extremely capable. There is not a better person to call when you need an attorney. You will be so relieved to have Richard Adams on your side.

I'm so grateful that I made the perfect choice!
Mr. Adams represented me in a workers comp. disability claim. My employer, and it's self-insured w/c carrier, with it's arrogant above the law attitude, not only denied my claim, but often refused to follow the law throughout a lengthy court battle.Mr. Adams brilliance, combined with his wisdom,experience, and his relentless perseverance, resulted in justice being served. He IS the perfect choice

Excellent, highly skilled attorney
Richard was opposing counsel in a personal injury case with me, in which his client had sued my client for a car accident. He is exceptionally well skilled, of the highest moral caliber, and did an outstanding job for his client. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney, as he fought hard, and showed fairness and integrity. His questioning of my expert was brilliant, hands down the best I've seen in my more than 23 years of practice. During hearings, it was clear the judge also held him in the highest regard. He has my strongest possible endorsement.

Happy Client
I was denied my workers comp claim in Dec 2012. Mr. Adams took on my case and worked tirelessly for almost a year and a half. He was always professional yet personable which is sometimes hard to find in a good lawyer. We finally went to court in April 2014 and honestly I never had a doubt that Mr Adams was walking me into a firing range blindly. I was prepared, and so was he. Needless to say we WON an I will be able to have the surgery I need, with the paid time off from work. :-)
