Family Law
Tyrone Adams is an exceptional attorney. He immediately understood my situation, and was extremely prepared and professional. He answered all my questions and returned my calls or reply to my emails promptly. Attorney Adams was very reassuring and confident. I highly give my recommendation to anyone looking for an excellent family lawyer. We were successful in court and I am extremely happy he represented me.

Professionalism at its best.
Mr. Afrasan Adams went above and beyond all of my needs. From the very start at the consultation, he took his time even when I wasn’t sure if I was going to hire an attorney. His character is what finalized my decision. I never once felt he wasn’t on top of things. He both met and acceded any possible expectations I had going into this. Without hesitation, I would recommend his services to anyone, or come back to him for any future needs.

If I could give 6 stars I would!!!
Attorney Adams is the epitome of a lawyer! I hired him in the middle of my family law case (which lasted for month) and immediately he set up a consultation. Working with attorney Adams I felt as if I was his only case, because of his attentiveness and compassion towards my situation. Although he has practiced family law for years, I never felt as if I was just another case file. He made time to listen and he treated my case with dignity. He answered questions and explain the complex language of law without making me feel stupid. It was through his actions, patience, and understanding that I’ve now changed my viewpoint on how I perceive lawyers as a whole. I would definitely hire him again if ever I need a family lawyer in the future!

Caring and very knowledgeable attorney
I was delightfully surprised with the way Mr. Afrasan Adams took the time to listen to my case and then respond with avenues that I could take in order to obtain the best possible outcome and this was just during the consult! He was the only attorney who was able to answer all my questions and concerns and thoroughly explain the whys and citing the legal ramifications as well. I am very pleased with his professionalism and knowledge and can tell he is passionate about what he does especially with finding a most peaceful resolution to civil matters. I wish there were more attorneys like him. So I glad I can highly recommend him to all my friends and family.

Best of the Best; Gets the Job Done Well and Fast
I have known Mr. Tyrone Afrasan Adams for 2 years. During this time, I had an opportunity to observe him as a member, colleague, and as a co-worker on numerous occasions. By adopting a “must-win” posture, he is able to obtain better than expected results for many of his constituents. These successes, and his overall performance become more appreciable in light of his assignment to a particularly challenging area of law (including demanding clientele he had to confront on a daily basis). I recommend him to any individual, interested in such values.

Attorney Tyrone Adams is a Warrior in the legal world!
Attorney Tyrone Adams is one of the smartest black men that I have ever had the pleasure to do business with. He is a driven visionary for change and progress in our community. His work ethic is admirable. Attorney Adams has aligned himself to be a great warrior in the legal world - fighting battles for the people who need it most. I strongly recommend his services and affirm that he will always have my business and that of my community. I pray that strength and endurance be with him and his family.

Professional, passionate and sharp legal mind!
Attorney Tyrone Adams is very professional, personable and on top of that knows his craft! I was fortunate to have him handle an employment law situation with an unethical employer. He took the time to understand a complex situation, broke it down and furnished what became a solid legal argument. I couldn't have picked a better attorney to handle everything for me! I highly recommend him and his practice.
