Macon, GA – Judge William (Bill) Adams has joined Adams Law Firm following nearly 19 successful years serving as Judge of the State Court of Bibb County. Judge Adams’ love for both the legal field and the Macon community has spanned his adult life, and his leadership in both almost as long.
The eldest son of middle Georgia “legal legend” Charles Adams, Judge Adams grew up with a plan to practice law. He joined his father’s law firm in 1977 upon graduating cum laude from Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law. In 1978, he went on to serve as an Assistant United States Attorney in the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Georgia. There he prosecuted a wide array of federal crimes and served on the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force. In 1986, he rejoined Adams, Hemingway and Hemingway as Partner where he engaged in a varied practice of civil and criminal litigation in both state and federal courts.
In 1998, Judge Adams ran unopposed for an open seat on the State Court bench after the retirement of Judge Taylor Phillips. Adams was re-elected unopposed four more times. While serving on the bench, Adams gained expert legal knowledge in all aspects of civil trials from a perspective that few attain and even fewer take back to private practice. As Adams Law Firm’s “Of Counsel” attorney, Judge Adams will apply his decades of legal knowledge to fight for justice for personal injury and wrongful death clients, considering the nuances involved in each individual case. He also plans to work with the underserved community to obtain legal services as well as serve as a neutral performing mediation services.
