Johnny Adams was sworn in as an Attorney by the Alabama Supreme Court during a ceremony held on Thursday, October 25, 2018 at the Montgomery Performing Art Center in Montgomery, AL.
Adams graduated from Birmingham School of Law on December 16, 2017. Adams was notified on September 21, 2018 that he had attained a passing score on the Alabama Bar Exam. Adams has formed a limited liability company named Johnny Adams Law Firm, LLC.
Adams will be practicing law as a solo practitioner and his office is located at 324 Ellis Street, Union Springs, Alabama. Adams jokingly said his new slogan is, “Call me Bullock County!” But, on a serious note, he added, “I look forward to assisting people in the local area with their legal needs.”
Two others with connections to Bullock County participated in the Ceremony. Alabama Supreme Court Justice James “Jim” Main participated as one of the associate members of the Alabama Supreme Court and Alabama State Bar President-Elect Christy Crow congratulated each new attorney as they received their Alabama Supreme Court certificates on stage.
Justice Main was born and resided in Union Springs until he began college. He still has relatives and property in Bullock County. Attorney Christy Crow is a partner in the law firm Jinks, Crow and Dickson, P.C.
Each Attorney being sworn in at the ceremony recited the following Oath of Office, “I do solemnly swear that I will demean myself as an attorney, according to the best of my learning and ability, and with all good fidelity, as well to the court as to the client; that I will use no falsehood or delay any person's cause for lucre or malice, and that I will support the constitution of the State of Alabama and of the United States, so long as I continue a citizen thereof, so help me God.”
This ceremony takes place two times each year as new attorneys are admitted to begin practicing law in Alabama.
About 300 new attorneys from across the State of Alabama were formally certified by the Alabama Supreme Court at the ceremony.
