In my lifetime, I have been required to retain an attorney a number of times for a variety of reasons. I can honestly say that Andrew McAdams was the first I retained where I walked away totally satisfied that I had a true advocate representing and working for me. He listened carefully to my problem and then moved quickly to address it. He represented me in negotiations and did so with skill, restraint, and a determination to make sure I had been heard. He was extremely responsive to my calls, making me feel as though I was his only client. You could say he is the very antithesis of the attorneys who so richly deserve to be the brunt of so many jokes. I highly recommend Andrew.Mar 1, 2017
Criminal Defense Attorney
He took the time to speak to me and give me advice about my case before I even hired him. He had empathy and good knowledge of the court system.Sep 21, 2017Verified
We hired Andrew McAdams with Western Law because a woman wrongfully accused my husband of assault. The woman lied to the police and it looked bad, but Andrew was able to track down surveillance video showing that the assault didn't happen. My husband could have taken a deal for disorderly conduct and pay a small fine, but we took it to trial. Andrew was amazing in trial and was found NOT GUILTY! He was great to work with from beginning to end. He's helping us now to get it all expunged. I highly recommend Andrew and Western Law.Apr 15, 2018
Andrew was the perfect lawyer for me. He made sure my mess I was in was taken care of and I paid as little as possible to the courts for fines. He went up to bat for me and understood I had a busy schedule at the same time. I'd use him again and again for any of my law needs. He was responsive of how to deal with the situation as soon as I reached out to him and let me know everything would be ok. If you want a lawyer that's assertive gets the mess handled and is there for you any time of the day use Andrew McAdams!Mar 30, 2017
I needed some quick help with my situation. Andrew responded quickly. He let me know what my legal choices were. And gave me advice on my choice. I would use him again.Jul 31, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For most criminal matters, I work on a flat rate pricing system. We agree upon a flat price for representation at the beginning, depending on the type and nature of the case. With a flat-rate, you don't have to worry about a legal bill that will balloon or grow out of control as the case progresses. I can also take matters on an hourly basis, depending upon the preference of my client. Most of the time, however, client's prefer a flat-rate agreement where my bill doesn't go up higher in the event things turn out to be more complicated that we anticipated.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Facing criminal charges can be very intimidating and scary. Whether you have been charged with the most serious felony or the smallest misdemeanor, prosecution is a very unpleasant experience to say the least. Simply not knowing how the system works and what the future might hold is enough to drive any person mad. I've found that helping clients see the big picture establishing a working plan going forward goes a long way toward providing peace of mind. Clear answers don't always come right away, but having a solid grasp of what the road ahead might hold can go a long way. I always prefer to meet in person in my office, but also recognize that most people have work and family responsibilities that might prevent them from taking time off during the day to travel and meet with an attorney. Nowadays, much of the initial work can be done over the telephone if the client doesn't have time to meet in person during regular office hours. Whether we meet in person or over the phone is up my client's personal preference and schedule. I will do whatever I can to accommodate, and frequently take phone calls after-hours. I am always available via text message at the number provided here as well. This is often a great way to coordinate a meeting or phone call if your schedule is busy. You are always free to send me a quick message with details letting me know what help you need. If I can't call you back immediately, I'll message you to arrange a time when we can talk or meet.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated from law school at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. I was a full-time felony prosecutor in one of the nation's largest prosecuting agencies in Phoenix, Arizona for three years, followed by another five years working as a full-time felony prosecutor in Utah. Before making the switch to criminal defense, I spent two years teaching as a full-time law school professor in Charlotte, North Carolina. I graduated from college at the University of Utah, where I was earned many honors. During this time, I also had the unique privilege of spending a semester in Washington, D.C. where I worked as an intern for the U.S. Supreme Court.
