Local Board Certified Personal Injury Trial Attorneys
Will and Tad Adams have been trying personal injury cases together at the
Adams Law Firm from the moment Will graduated Law School. For the last
20 years, they have done so from their home base in Katy, Texas. But their
story begins in Dallas.
Only days after opening the law firm’s doors in Dallas, a woman walked
in to the firm and asked us to represent her in small claims court …
the next day. And, she needed us to take the case
pro bono (for free), because she couldn’t afford even to repair her car.
As we learned from our soon to be client that afternoon, an off-duty peace
officer had run a red light, severely damaging the woman’s only
means of transportation. The problem was, the officer’s own department
responded to the call and placed full blame on our potential client. We
had nothing on our calendar, so we thought, why not? Using the woman’s
Polaroid photos with her handwritten notes scribbled in the margins, we
presented her case to a six-person jury in a small cinder-block annex
in a Dallas suburb, hoping to show that the police report got it wrong
and that the off-duty officer was really to blame. After 6 hours of deliberation
on a Friday evening, we had our first victory.
That was 1995. Not long thereafter, Will and Tad obtained a $2.2 million
dollar personal injury jury verdict in another Dallas suburb, this time
against a drunk driver who had nearly killed our client in a rear end
motor vehicle crash. Tad and Will tried the case because the insurance
company waited two years to offer policy limits and we believed, under
Texas law, they had waited too long. Following the verdict, the case worked
its way through both the state and federal court systems over a five-year
period (very long story), and the case eventually settled for a confidential
amount (ten times the final offer before trial). Following the death of
their father Tom Adams in 1997, Will and Tad returned home to Katy, Texas
to be with their mother and brother, and continued down the path of making
a difference in their clients’ lives from their childhood hometown.
Our personal injury attorneys handle a variety of serious personal injury
and wrongful death cases throughout Texas. As a smallish firm that likes
to give every client and their family our undivided attention, we naturally
will not accept every case that might have merit. The types of cases that
we do accept include car crashes caused by 18 wheelers and other commercial
trucks and vehicles, personal injuries and deaths caused by distracted
and impaired driving (which includes texting while driving, drunk / drugged
driving, and inappropriate use of cell phones and other devices with distracting
apps and games), motorcyclists who have been injured in wrecks caused
by other drivers’ bad choices, on the job and construction injuries
and deaths, pipeline and factory explosions, and off-shore accidents,
to name a few.
Over the last 20 plus years, Tad and Will Adams have had the privilege
of trying all but one client’s case side by side in courtrooms throughout
the State of Texas. We can’t remember why one of us was not available
that day, but we remember it was the only time the two of us were not
sitting side by side while trying a case. And we expect it to be the last.
There are several things about our firm that make us unique. One is that
Will is Double Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law (by the Texas
Board of Legal Specialization) and Civil Trial Law (by the National Board
of Trial Advocacy). Very few personal injury trial lawyers have been awarded
a double board certification.
Our lawyers also make frequent trips to the Courthouse. We are not a settlement
mill, which means we must stand up for our clients’ rights and plead
their causes before judges and juries to ensure full, fair and just compensation.
The Adams Law Firm is also unique in that we have lawyers in house that
can handle many nuances a complicated personal injury or wrongful death
case might present. For example, we have an in-house probate lawyer to
handle matters that arise in wrongful death cases where a probate is necessary.
That lawyer can give you and your family guidance while navigating the
probate system. We also have full time family lawyers who can assist with
guardianships, child support liens, custody issues, common law marriage
situations, and paternity disputes. Not every injury case requires this
additional expertise, but when necessary, we are able to do so in house
with lawyers under our direct supervision. If you’d like to see
