Your search is over, hire Adam!
I hired Adam for a speed ticket. I am so glad that I did. I found him especially accessible and quick to respond to my inquiries. He achieved an incredible outcome for me (from a potential of $350 and 4 points to $150 and zero pojnts).

Moving Violation Defense
Adam was great to work with, super responsive, and communicated updates throughout the process. Adam’s representation resulted in a dismissal of my case.

Adam is a lawyer who genuinely cares for his clients and will fight to get the best outcome!
I couldn’t be more thankful for Adam’s hard work, determination and patience with my DWI case. He had a genuine concern for me and my family. Adam was honest and transparent with every step of my case. Adam worked rigorously to reduce my DWI charge to a traffic violation. Adam pushed to transfer for my case into a court for Veterans, which was more beneficial for me. The possibility of transferring my case had about a 1% chance of happening. I remember Adam saying, “It’s a Hail Mary pass, but you never know what can happen, so let’s take the shot”. The Hail Mary worked. I know it was time-consuming but thanks to Adam’s patience and perseverance, I have a 2nd chance of getting my life back on track. There's a brighter future for my family and employment. Thank you, Adam. I can’t express how grateful I am that Adam took my case, he truly looked out for my best interest and didn’t take the easy way out. If you need a great lawyer who genuinely cares for his clients and will fight to get the best outcome, please hire Adam.

Great Attorney
Adam was super easy to work with. We corresponded via email and phone. He took care of my traffic violations and saved me a trip to court. He also had both tickets dismissed without any fines! the best outcome i could have hoped for. thank you so much Adam!

Justice Was Done!
Adam got me the result that needed to happen for me to continue to have faith in the legal system. The details of my case are silly, what the officers did was unjust, but Adam has helped me to make it go away. In the end, the right result took place, thank you Adam Neal!

Best check Ive ever had to write!
Adam represented me for a criminal drug case. He was not only professional, but also very nice and like someone else said, had a great sense of humor which helped me feel at ease - I had priors so that helped a lot! At the time, I didnt have a job, Adam was kind enough to consider my situation and make it affordable for me. Throughout the whole court process, I felt comfortable knowing that my case was in good hands. Great attorney who actually responds to phone calls in case you have any questions or concerns about your case, if he's not available, he responds quickly unlike many other lawyers Ive dealth with. I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know that needs help in the future!

Excellent lawyer, who took my case seriously!
Adam represented me in a civil case against a large and wealthy corporate entity, which had failed to compensate me for my professional consulting services. As soon as he got involved, I felt there was finally some movement from the other side, and he was able to procure a very acceptable settlement for me. Not only did Adam get the job done in a timely and professional manner, but his great sense of humor made the proceedings as painless as possible. Can't recommend his legal services highly enough!

Only good decision I made
I've made some terrible decisions. Calling Adam C. Neal, wasn't one of them. They saved me from real trouble at an affordable rate. Will definitely call them again next time I need legal help.

he took my money as cash and he did not work
I hired Adam C Neal January 22 2019. He asked me cash $1500 for the case. When I really needed him in the court and I was really deperate, He did not show up. I asked him to pay back cash $1500. He refused to pay pay back the money. I really want people to see this article and consider this.

Don’t Hire Adam Neil
Don't hire so called attorney Adam C Neil. I hired his services for 3 different cases. I lost all of them. The last one was done through Arag. He did not know that I had replaced him with a different attorney. He also didn't know that I attended the court date in person. The next day, he sent an email explaining that I had lost the case pretending he attempted and took care of my case. This led me to believe that he probably never attended to my previous 2 cases including my daughter's case which he also lost. DON'T hire Adam Neil. You will regret and lose your case.
