The firm started in 1997. Thomas F. Adams, Jr. left Malpin, Taylor, Ellis & Adams, PA to start Adams, Portnoy & Berggren, PA. When Mr. Adams retired in 2001, Adams, Portnoy & Berggren, PLLC was formed with Mr. Adams continuing as “of counsel.” Mr. Adams sadly passed away in 2010.
In January 2015, William and Mr. Portnoy ceased practicing together and William started the Berggren Law Offices, PLLC. William continues to devote 100% of his practice to helping those struggling with debt.
