When Steve Adams, our founding attorney, passed away suddenly on November 1, 2020, we were shocked and deeply saddened. In addition to being a well-respected criminal defense lawyer, Steve had an unmatched passion for life.
“He didn't do anything halfway, whether it was being a dad, being an attorney, or being a four-time Ironman world championship competitor,” said attorney Tad Brittingham, Steve’s law firm partner.
A Legacy Worth Defending
Steve started The Law Offices of Steven R. Adams as a solo practitioner in 2000. He worked hard to establish himself, wrote several DUI defense and legal marketing books—and through it all, he defended his clients like family.
"We act quickly and aggressively at this firm,” Steve once said. “We know the ins and outs of DUI and criminal defense. We take pride in our work ethic, and I believe our clients know that we work hard for them. That’s what they expect, that’s what we expect, and that’s what we will do."
Steve’s success quickly allowed him to add two experienced criminal defense attorneys to the team. Today, his legacy lives on through his colleagues, partner Tad Brittingham and attorney Alex Deardorff.
We’ll Continue to Fight for You in Honor of Steve
The Law Offices of Steven R. Adams will remain open and ready to fight for you with the same vigor and zeal as Steve would want. The work we do for our criminal defense clients is a living memorial to our founding attorney and friend.
“It is business as usual,” says Tad Brittingham, “and we are going to work like hell to keep Steve’s Legacy going.”
