Involved in an incident that requires an insurance claim?  Insurance companies are notorious for withholding claim payments due to small nuances in their contractual agreements. Every insurance company has an attorney in their corner. Let us stand in you corner so you don't get pushed around and settle for a penny less than you deserve.

What Our Clients Are Saying

  • I hired Adrian to handle a legal situation for my daughter. Adrian assured me he would get the issue taken care of and he did. Not once, was I directed to speak to his assistant. I dealt with Adrian the entire time. He has endless resources and he’s not afraid to use them. I hope to never need him again, but if we do, I won’t hesitate to call him.

  • Adrian, his team and outside resources have been incredibly supportive. They care! You will not be treated as just another case. He is who you want representing you. He is knowledgeable, well presented and thorough. Best attorney I’ve ever worked with hands down.

  • From my initial consultation Adrian took charge of my case and handled it expertly. I immediately felt like my case was in capable hands. He was able to get my warrant dismissed and charges dropped. He was always reassuring and honest. Consistently able to answer my questions directly through text/email and phone calls as I was not in the same city to see him in person. I cannot express how grateful I am for his counsel and expertise.
