Chambers rankings are based on an attorney’s “legal knowledge and experience, ability, effectiveness and client service.” During the evaluation process, clients described Adam to Chambers researchers as “an extremely talented and hard-working attorney. Adam is outstanding in every sense. He’s super smart, a great lawyer and likes to win.”
