  • I was recently looking for an attorney to help me with estate panning when I googled best rated estate attorneys in my area. Adams Law came up and I contacted them. It turned out they are top notch. I love the principle they demonstrated "client first". My experience working with the firm was great from start to finish. Attorney Melody Haynes was very thorough, knowledgeable, dependable and patient as we work through my plan. Working with her empowers me to educate friends and family regarding the importance of building a legacy for generations to come. - Winsome

  • I lost my brother on March 26, 2021 due to natural causes. He left his wife and 3 children intestate. I was completely illiterate about PROBATE processes. The funeral home where my brother was kept referred us to a probate attorney who I could immediately see from our initial phone call and a follow up call—did not have the professionalism or knowledge that I thought was necessary for this delicate situation. My daughter, who is a media professional found Adams Law Office online. She said that the reviews online stood out among the other probate attorneys. She also said that she called those 3 probate attorneys, including Adams Law and from the initial call, my daughter said, this is the company that we should use because “they seem to have the right answers to my questions and have excellent customer service.” My daughter was right. I have dealt with lawyers in different areas of practice. Adams Law stands out among the cultural norms of legal practice. Suren Adams is truly a class act and a state of the art professional. From the office secretary, staff, and attorneys, they ALL at Adams Law deliver the services that’s true to their mission statement. They communicate with their clients in a timely and efficient manner—which is unlike my experience with other lawyers. I never felt like I was bothering them because they maintained constant communication with me on my brother’s probate case. In those communications (via email or phone calls), they were always very friendly, showed compassion, and were always above and beyond helpful to me and my family. I highly recommend everyone use Suren Adams Law Firm if you are looking for a team that is reliable, proficient, honest, ethical, compassionate, friendly, has integrity, and goes above and beyond to help families through difficult times of loss and legal challenges. I am grateful to the Divine Being that led my daughter online to select Suren Adams and her team at Adams Law. -- Lucy E. (Apple Valley, MN)

  • Great law office to work with. The discussions and paperwork can be difficult and extremely overwhelming, but Pansy worked with us every step of the way to make sure we were doing what was best for us and our family. The team was extremely responsive from the first phone call, kind and professional in all conversations, and met our deadlines without issue. We are very grateful to the Adams Law Office team and will definitely be utilizing their services again in the future!

  • I was looking for a law firm to help me set up a trust for my estate. It became an urgent priority to me when my husband passed away unexpectedly without leaving a will. I came across Adams Law Office, LLC, and they were an answer to my prayers! I was treated with compassion and professionalism in every step of my journey. It was not a complicated process, and my attorney explained everything I needed to know and do to achieve my goal. I have recommended Adams Law Office to several of my close friends, and I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a fair, honest, and competent law firm to help them with their legal needs.

In our ESTATE PLANNING practice, we create personalized plans including Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Healthcare Directives, and Guardianship documents for minor kids that solve a myriad of issues for our clients. A well drafted Estate Plan will help prevent probate, provide asset protection, prevent unwanted intestate distributions and mis-management of assets, reduce or delay Federal and State taxes, provide guardian instructions and Medicaid planning, and can also provide for family members with special needs.


Our PROBATE practice area focuses on helping our clients who are mourning the loss of a loved one. We handle the details of the Estate Administration with the Register of Wills Office and Probate Court so that our clients can focus on their emotional healing rather than the legal documents and probate court requirements.


In our GUARDIANSHIP practice area, we help our clients who have family members that are no longer able to handle their own affairs. Through our Guardianship representation, we help to navigate the court process for taking over the management of a loved one’s finances and medical care. Whether this situation occurs from a medical condition like Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, stroke, or from drug or alcohol addiction, we are here to help when your loved one no longer has the capacity to handle things on their own.


The legal team at ADAMS LAW OFFICE, LLC is here to help!
