12-18-17. Larry Stirling and Adrian Adams were featured in the Daily Journal, a newspaper dedicated to California's legal community.  The Journal was interested in ADAMS | STIRLING's niche area of the law and what was driving our unusual growth. They talked to various members of our firm as well as attorneys in other firms to get an idea of what we did and our reputation in the industry.
They were fascinated by some of the more unusual cases our firm handled, such as the accused murder Robert Durst and unauthorized pot farms. To read the article, see "Taking Up Residence."

12-3-17. Attorney Tom Quilling joined ADAMS | STIRLING. As former Deputy City Attorney for San Dimas, Tom handled matters involving the Subdivision Map Act, zoning laws, land use approvals such as general plans and zoning amendments, specific plans, conditional use permits, and variances.

Tom’s experience includes environmental litigation, real estate land use, zoning and regulatory litigation, and class action defense. Tom represented real estate developers, cities, redevelopment agencies, and housing authorities in construction-related cases for public works contracts and construction claims management. His clients included the Walt Disney Concert Hall in the defense of a multi-million dollar construction lawsuit. He also represented the City of Los Angeles in a complex, multi-million dollar marine construction lawsuit.
