MACON, GA, December 3, 2015 – A year ago today, Adams Law Firm announced that it had opened for business in middle Georgia. One year later, the firm celebrates a banner year.
“Going out on your own certainly comes with unique risks and excitement,” said founding partner, Brian Adams, “but, I couldn’t imagine a more rewarding year.”
Bookending the year, week one began with a judge entering a $1.6M verdict in their client’s favor from an earlier bench trial, and just last week, they settled a serious personal injury claim for $1.25M. Multiple other six-figure recoveries were obtained throughout the year. Faced with a growing caseload, Adams hired associate attorney MaryBeth Tolle to help investigate new claims and prepare cases for trial. Tolle also broadens the firm’s services with her successful background in criminal defense.
In addition to Brian Adams’s commitment to his clients and practice, he serves as the President of the Board of the Ocmulgee National Park & Preserve Initiative acting as a driving force in bringing Georgia’s first and only National Park to his community. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the Altamaha RiverKeeper, Ocmulgee Water Trail Partnership, Keep Macon-Bibb Beautiful Commission and the Macon-Bibb County Development Authority. Further, he is on the steering committee for the Macon Action Plan – a community-driven plan that envisions the future of Macon’s historic downtown.
To that end, in the first year, Adams Law Firm purchased, fully renovated, and opened its doors in a historic downtown Macon building that Little Richard once called home. “Positioning ourselves at this cornerstone gateway solidifies our commitment to both our practice and the preservation of our urban core,” said the 2005 Mercer Law School graduate. “Macon is home, and it always feels good to invest back in your community.”
As a third-generation Macon attorney, Adams is often reminded by his legal peers of the footprints set forth by both his father, The Honorable Judge William Adams, and his grandfather, Charles Adams; and, the coming week is no different. On Tuesday, December 8th at 10pm EST, Investigative Discovery’s series “A Crime to Remember” will feature one of Charles Adams’s high-profile cases from 1960 that helped cast him into “legal legend” status.
“I wish my ‘Pop’ were still around to see this past year of my career,” added Adams. “I think he would be proud.”
