OWI – All Charges Dropped
After being arrested in October of 2016, I hired Adam Pollack to represent me in an OWI case in Iowa City, IA. He consulted with me and informed me that he would like to see the video from the arrest of the night I was arrested. After viewing the video and consulting with me, it was apparent there was no probable cause for the arrest. Adam guided me through the entire process and we ended up going to trial after a deposition and an offer from the state to drop the charges down to a public intoxication. It was already a small win; however, the fines, mandatory courses, SR22 insurance, interlock system would still be on the table. Thus, the total cost for the OWI would stay the same and I would need to attend the counselling/weekend course. I would also need to keep the SR22 insurance for two years and the interlock system with the driving restrictions for its full term of 6 months.
After declining the offer we went to court and ended up winning the case. Adam was very professional, considerate and very informative. I would recommend Adam to anyone who is in need of an Attorney in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area.

Excellent Legal Advice – Dismissed Charges
I had 2 charges pending against me, one for reckless discharge of a firearm and another for child endangerment because a gun went off accidentally in my home. I was facing 2 years in jail, $10,000 in fines and possibly losing my children. Because of Adams knowledge of the law and his attention to details he was able to get both charges dismissed. He not only provided excellent legal advice, but was able to provide personal advice to help me through my situation. I would highly recommend him, and in your first call to him you will understand why!
Enough Said Hire Adam
After reading the Past reviews on Adam believe them and I will add this. My house was raided by law enforcement and I was charged with possession of marijuana, drug tax stamp violation and drug paraphernalia. Law enforcement seized my automobile, firearms, personal belongings,deed to my my house and savings. Iowa has a forfeiture law, seems to be in my opinion a legal way to steal your stuff, with that said I hired Adam Pollack and the fight was on, my automobile was seized in a different County So Adam had to take on two different prosecutors. The prosecution wanted a suspended sentence and five years probation. When the fight was done thanks to Adam I received a deferred judgement and three years probation and I only served 18 months. Now it’s gets personal take on the Iowa forfeiture law to get my belongings back with that said Adam gets back to work and in the end I have my personal belongings back, it did come at a heavy cost but sometimes it’s about proving a point……… enough said hire Adam.
Adam pays very close attention to your case. He has provided a very positive experience and I feel very confident in his advice. I would recommend Adam to anyone looking for a lawyer who is straightforward and willing to answer questions or concerns as you move forward with your case.
I highly recommend Adam as the best option for an attorney in the Iowa City area. Adam is an amazing attorney. He pays attention to all the details and is extremely knowledgeable about the law. He is great with his communication and does the absolute best by his clients.
46 and born and raised in Johnson County. Found plenty of trouble over the years, especially downtown IC. With 6 months to go on 2 yr dl revocation, I get a mile down the road and pulled over by a deputy I don’t know because he thought he recognized me. Boom! Now I’m looking at up to a year in jail, $1500 fine and worse yet 2 more years revocation from the DOT.
Tired of my CR lawyer plea bargains, I pick a IC attorney out the phone book, Adam Pollack. First talking to him I really didn’t like him, so many damn questions, he even asked what was wrong with me, I felt like I was talking to the prosecutor. After I hung up the phone and stewed I decided he was the guy.
Not my first rodeo, throwing money in the Johnson County wind, I was sure. Adam stayed on my ass and I got a work permit. ( A huge pain in the butt!) The guy would have made more money working at Hardee’s after the hours he spent pulling my head out of my butt.
He never let me give up hope even what I believed hopeless. I ended up pleading guilty to a traffic ticket with a $100 fine. I get my license back on Valentine’s day.
Adam was professional and aggressive with my complicated case. Serious when needed and lighthearted when appropriate. Adam was suggested to me by a number of other co-workers and friends and seems to have an exceptional reputation in the area. Recently, I got back in contact with him about my case and he found an oversight by the country clerk about which he made a motion and corrected for me without charge. I would consider him a trustworthy confidant and would highly recommend him to anyone needing assistance. Thank you, Adam!
A great lawyer
Adam is always quick to get back to me on my case and answer any questions. He did an outstanding job handling my legal problems
Adam was thorough, honest, available and most importantly successful in reducing my charges from an OWI to a public intoxication charge. The evidence in our case helped, but Adam’s persistence, patience and professionalism made all the difference. I highly recommend hiring Adam to represent you.
Now, This Is What I Call a Good Attorney
I have to start off by saying, Adam Pollack is the best attorney I’ve ever come across and let’s say I have been no angel where the law is concerned. My past has been in and out of the court systems. I’ve had a pretty long history with the law. That’s why I also want to say, I know a good attorney when I see one! To put it mildly, Adam is THE BEST attorney I’ve ever came across. I was facing time in prison. I got caught up in a bad situation once again, and talked to a couple of lawyers. It just didn’t feel right. Of course, I was appointed a public defender, and knowing my past, there was no way the public defender could do what Adam did for me. With all the charges, yes, all of them, I had to find an attorney. So, I said some prayers and kept looking and that’s when I found Adam. He has a straight-forward attitude with a good demeanor. That was what I needed and I felt it when I met him. So, when he told me about the fee (yes, it is a little high) but I did what I had to and hired him. There is no amount of money that would be too much, when it comes to having your freedom or going to prison and having the charges on one’s record. After we spoke, and Adam received everything about my case, he went right to work for me. WOW, when I received a call from him explaining everything to me, I mean, he was very, very straight with me and asking me what I thought, and what I felt about my case. He explained what he could hopefully get done for me, after getting off the phone with Adam, I was very impressed! I was facing (3) aggravated misdemeanors and (2) felonies. I can’t express how much Mr. Pollack went above and beyond reviewing all police video, statements, and police reports then getting with me and what all went down that day that brought me to this point. Then, he researched similar cases like mine. Adam went through everything with a fine-toothed comb and found things that were not done by procedure, etc. etc. By Adam being so thorough, I ended up not having to go to jail or prison and just had to sign a paper, sent it back to him and received a year unsupervised probation, a simple plea on a misdemeanor and on top of that, saved me $700. He is an amazing attorney and I cannot express enough that if you need a great lawyer, call Adam. He will not disappoint you! I thank God for helping me find Adam. In the end, all his hard work paid off for me. Adam was worth every dollar that I hired him for and then some!! Thank you so much, Mr. Pollack!
I hired Adam to get a criminal charge expunged from my record. He was very knowledgeable about the situation I was in. He gave me great advice and was very pleasant to work with. I was able to get my charge expunged from my record within 7 months of my charge! I highly recommend him as an attorney!
