Client Testimonials

"He was the only one who answered my call right away and provided clear initial thoughts about my case."

"Mr. Boni is a very professional criminal defence lawyer. I have this impression when I first time spoke with him during the initial inquiry. At that time, I was helpless and called many different lawyers on the yellow page. He was the only one who answered my call right away and provided clear initial thoughts about my case. I hired him during our first in person meeting. As time goes by, my case is eventually withdrawn thanks to his effort. This has proven his professionalism and capabilities of handling serious cases. Since he is a criminal lawyer, I wish I would never hire him again. However, I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone who desperately needs advice in criminal matters. His fee is not the cheapest but worth every penny."

"I recommend Adam Boni and his team wholeheartedly"

"I recommend Adam Boni and his team wholeheartedly. My family member had frivolous charges levelled against her that could have destroyed her career and reputation. At our first meeting with Adam, I knew immediately that he was the right person to defend her; fortunately, she felt the same. Throughout the process, Adam showed himself to be honest, realistic, and empathetic, as well as highly capable and knowledgeable. He was never too busy to respond to emails, texts, and phone calls, both from me and my family member. He supported her every step of the way through her seven-month ordeal. I am grateful for the positive outcome of this case. Adam is an excellent lawyer and an outstanding person."

"He is exceptional inside and outside of court"

"Adam is professional, effective, prompt, accessible and cares. He is exceptional inside and outside of court. He is well worth the trust and confidence in handling your case. As he is a criminal lawyer, I hope to never have to call upon his services again; but would do so without hesitation."

"He had all my charges withdrawn before we even reached trial"

"My case was very sensitive and time consuming. I didn't think Adam would want to represent me but he did, and when I was about to give up, he was the one who convinced me to keep fighting. He had all my charges withdrawn before we even reached trial. Money was no object in this case, but Adam didn't extend the case to overcharge. Adam is the best decision I have ever made, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a solid ally during a very vulnerable time. He will not judge; he'll be your stronger half no matter what. His chuckle in court when he proved my plaintiff was lying was all I needed to know I'd found my lawyer-soulmate. Adam Boni is my hero. Retain this lawyer now, before he becomes too famous to afford. Thank you Adam!"
