Attorney Bill Adler always remembers a girl who was burned beyond recognition. As a boy he’d often visit the law firm his father founded, and one day he encountered the burned girl and her father, who were there for a meeting.
“I’ll never forget that,” said Adler, who’s been an attorney at Jim Adler & Associates’ principal office in Houston since August of 2011, soon after graduating from Oklahoma City University School of Law. “Even then I felt the importance of the firm — of my dad — helping a family after a tragedy.”
That wasn’t the only thing that inspired Bill to become a personal injury lawyer and join his father’s firm. He also relishes working with his Dad and being able, one day, to “keep the family business going. My siblings became a doctor, a school teacher and a physician’s assistant, so it was up to me, and I welcome that.”
Now Bill handles managerial duties and hundreds of cases. He often negotiates settlements on behalf of clients but also goes to court when needed. And he’s still learning from his father, “the Texas Hammer.”
