If you walk into Steve's office you see pictures of Mother Teresa, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, I'd like to think Steve draws inspiration from them. I would like to thank you Steve for helping prove my innocence through the courts. I highly recommend Steve Adams to anyone who wishes to prove innocence or see justice in a court of law."

    A Satisfied Client
  • "First off, for someone who received a third DUI, I was surprised that Steve and his secretary Jen, were as nice, and supportive as they were to me. Every single time we had any contact or correspondence, I could tell that they cared about me as an individual not just as a client. I could tell that they were tirelessly fighting for me and cared deeply about me. I've been wondering still about the fact that even when I didn't believe that there was even hope for me, they encouraged me to keep on trying. Steve is an awesome attorney, and Jen has a heart of gold."

    A Satisfied Client
  • "Thank you so much for defending, helping and guiding me through my OVI arrest and subsequent proceedings. What was a very scary ordeal, I am blessed to have you as my attorney. You were very patient, dedicated and competent. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"

    A Satisfied Client
  • "When I met with Steve, he wanted to know every detail of my day, from when I woke up in the morning to the evening of my OUI arrest. Fortunately, I didn’t blow or do any tests. Steve did not sugar coat my plight. My arrest involved me crashing into a guardrail, and Steve told me that due to the accident and being in Mayor’s Court, a plea would be hard to get. He got it moved to County and got the prosecutor to offer me reckless opp. I got my CDL license back, without paying the ALS fee, my sentence was 3 day D.I.P. class, and probation, that terminated after D.I.P. completion and 250.00 fine and court costs were paid. I can’t thank him enough."

Top Ten Do's & Don'ts for DUI Suspects

  • Do provide the officer with your driver’s license, proof of insurance, and registration if possible.
  • Do comply with an officer’s request for you to exit the vehicle.
  • Do be courteous to law enforcement but do not say more than you have to or give them any evidence.
  • Do remember the Fifth Amendment protects your right to remain silent.
  • Do understand you have the right to refuse sobriety tests and to appeal any license suspension imposed.
  • Do Not talk to police about where you were or what you did. Tell the officer, “I want to speak to an attorney before I say or do anything.”
  • Do Not take any field sobriety tests. These tests are voluntary, subjective, and meant to incriminate you. Tell the officer, “I want to speak to an attorney before I say or do anything.”
  • Do Not give law enforcement consent to search your vehicle.
  • Do Not consent to taking chemical tests - including blood, breath, or urine tests - until you speak with a lawyer.
  • Do Not allow law enforcement to pressure you into taking sobriety or chemical tests. They are scientifically unreliable and will not help your case.
