I have to give the office of Adam Oakey’s team, a big Thank you, for your Professionalism and feeling like you count and matter. 📝 📋“ SPECIAL THANK YOU TO: “ Blake Dugger and Lorenzo Coca and Elizabeth S.

    Adam Oakey is an excellent attorney who really goes above and beyond for his clients. He represented a relative of mine on a criminal case and was able to get him only a few months, instead of 9 years. Could not have been more appreciative of him and what he has done to help our family. - 2/24/2021

    Life has many surprises and twist's of fate. When you least expect it, the unthinkable happens. And this is when a good attorney can be the difference between your sanity and mental stability moving forward. These are the circumstances surrounding my particular case and I was fortunate enough to be introduced to the Adam Oakey Law firm. More importantly, I was able to retain a very professional and pleasant attorney by the name of Mr. Blake Dugger. It is my opinion that given the time constraints and introduction to my situation Mr. Dugger was very professional in handling my case. I thank you sir for your experience and friendly manor in which you conducted yourself. I will highly recommend your services to anyone in need. The Adam Oakey Law firm is favored to have such an experienced attorney. - 2/24/2021

    I am a business owner and Mr Oakey is my attorney. He has created professional contracts for me and has successfully collected payments for my company from clients who refused to pay for my services. I have only had good experiences with Adam and his associates, and I will continue to go to him when I need legal services. Highly recommended! - 2/24/2021

  • Monique AvatarMonique

    Long story, short; picked up 2 felony charges. 6 months down the road, Adam and his team had my case dismissed!!! Oakey’s Law Firm was professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and made me feel comfortable, rather than like a criminal. I highly recommend using the Law Office of Adam Oakey! - 1/24/2021 

    Wiley Seigler AvatarWiley Seigler

    I have known Adam for over 20 years. His greatest quality as a man has conveyed perfectly into his chosen vocation of attorney. He is fiercely loyal to his people and those that oppose him all wish they hadn't. I have heard since high school about people that don't like Oak for whatever reason. I can assure you that he treats people accordingly. If someone has ever had their feelings hurt or had negative outcomes of their interactions with him, they deserved it. I have only ever known him as a caring provider and protector that is willing to do things that others won't to protect that which he holds dear. If you ever find yourself in a bind or in a situation you may not be able to handle alone, I hope you have someone like him on your side. I'm glad I do! - 1/24/2021

    Went to the Law Office of Adam Oakey, and was immediately welcomed in and offered drinks with pleasant conversation. Everyone was incredibly helpful and welcoming. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Oakey and Mr. Lucero, while waiting. They had great energy, and really do everything they can for their community. I also had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Hess, who was such an all around amazing person. I am looking forward to continue to work with everyone in the office. The environment was very professional and respectful. - 12/24/2020
