I have been a client of Adams, Burge & Boughman for the past fourteen and a half years. Throughout this time, I have been provided with exemplary legal representation by Attorney Vickie Burge. She has continually exceeded all of my expectations by acting with integrity on my behalf and by working tirelessly to resolve every legal issue to my satisfaction. As if this weren't enough, over the years, every member of the Adams, Burge & Boughman legal team has treated me as a valued client with nothing less than dignity and respect. It has been an exceptional legal experience to be represented by an extremely ethical and competent attorney who also happens to be a very compassionate individual of high moral character. I can honestly say that, of the numerous other law firms that I have retained over the years for representation in various other legal matters, Adams, Burge, & Boughman has been, by far, the very best.

Attorney Vickie L. Burge, took on my Workers' Compensation Claim. I found her to be dedicated, hardworking, thorough, and willing to address my concerns. Attorney Burge works diligently to get you the best outcome on your case. I highly recommend her to anyone I know.

Mr. Boughman was invaluable in helping me through a difficult time. Mr. Boughman walked us through the process and made it easy to understand. He answered all of my questions, no matter how trivial (even on the weekend!), and took time out of his day to come to our home, rather than making us come to him.
