"As a senior or chief executive at several businesses in multiple industries, I have worked with many attorneys. Adam has proven on multiple occasions to provide the best combination of thoughtful support, absolutely brilliant insight into contract risks and the law, and avoiding cookie-cutter approaches by always first seeking a clear understanding of the organization’s needs. He delivered all of these on every project with a high degree of ethics and efficiency. I have found Adam remarkably adept and flexible at working with me when legal budgets have been tight, providing only the work I needed, to taking care of everything for us when time was our most precious resource. And while probably not the primary factor in selecting legal counsel, Adam is just a pleasure to work with. He is always polite and supportive. He respects my schedule and meets deadlines. He maintains a jovial and friendly attitude that I find always puts me at ease, even when the bombs are exploding around us. That is very reassuring and helps me focus on managing the business."
