Adam Young has an AV Preeminent* rating from Martindale-Hubbell. Adam was also selected as a member of The National Trial Lawyers Top 100, which is an invitation-only organization that recognizes the top 100 trial lawyers in each state.

During law school, Adam worked for the Navy JAG, NCIS division in Washington, DC and also clerked for the United States Attorney's Office in Charleston. After graduating from law school, Adam began his legal career at the Ninth Circuit Solicitor's Office, focusing his efforts on prosecuting criminal domestic violence cases. Starting his career focusing specifically on prosecuting criminal domestic violence cases provided Adam with a unique opportunity to learn from the ground up the ins and outs of the criminal justice system, including the experience negotiating pleas and trying countless bench trials. Adam was promoted to the violent crime team where he seized the opportunity to handle all types of violent crimes, ranging from assault and battery to drug crimes to armed robberies to attempted murder cases.

Adam has also successfully represented personal injury clients in negotiations, mediations and litigation of their claims. Adam provides a personalized approach towards personal injury cases by not working for big insurance companies or corporate clients. He is working for the individual client and focusing on their needs. Adam's goal is to make sure his clients receive the maximum compensation available, whether that means a trial or through successful pretrial negotiations.

In addition to Adam’s PI and criminal defense clients, he is the legal advisor for Hunting for Healing Inc., which is a charitable organization aimed at providing positive outdoor events and hunts for disabled United States military veterans and spouses. Adam counsels the organization on legal issues to ensure Hunting for Healing can best serve the military community. Adam also works as a prosecutor for the city of Folly Beach and Kiawah.
