When you work with Attorney Eric Samuel Adams, Jr., you can expect creative, courageous, and compassionate representation. Simply put, Attorney Adams genuinely cares about his clients and what matters to them. After all, he is a native son of Los Angeles, CA himself and so deeply cares about the community.
With remarkable success, Attorney Adams has tried over 30 trials to verdict ranging from simple assault to charges carrying a life sentence. Further, he has secured numerous dismissals for clients charged with murder and attempted murder, and he has never had a client plea guilty to a murder charge. For each individual client, Attorney Adams brings a wealth of experience accumulated over nearly a decade of advocacy. He knows how to take the offensive and will put up a courageous fight in trial.
From his days as a law student in the criminal defense clinic to the years he spent as a public defender in both Los Angeles and Orange Counties, Attorney Adams has been creatively and carefully crafting defenses to ensure that his clients – adults and children alike – receive the best possible outcome for their cases. In addition to numerous acquittals after trial, Attorney Adams has successfully used many tools at his disposal, including expert witnesses and motion practice to win cases. With past success as a guide, clients can expect that he will leave no stone unturned.
Currently, Attorney Adams serves as the Board Chair for the Ezrach Brain Trust Association, a non-profit devoted to changing the trajectory of underrepresented communities, located in Leimert Park. Attorney Adams also serves on the board of two high schools—the National Pine Forge Academy Alumni Association, his high school alma mater located in Pine Forge, PA, and the Boston DREAM Academy located in Dorchester, MA. In addition to serving the city of Los Angeles, he cares deeply about the education of our children.
When Attorney Adams isn’t busy fighting for justice, he can be found amongst family and friends, reading a good book, or cheering on his most favorite team in the world, the Los Angeles Lakers.
