ADAMEC is a World Golf Village gated community resident, a registered Republican who brags about his "family values" on his website, a J.D. graduate of controversial for-profit Florida Coastal School of Law and graduate of the University of Miami, to which he won a tennis scholarship.  In website PR, ADAMEC brags about his client service and service to the community.

The victim appears credible and documented her case after being a victim of alleged fraud.  Rear-end car crash victim Linda Masters required surgery. Ms. Masters hired ADAMEC,  a longtime prosecutor in the 8th Circuit, which includes Gainesville and Starke.  ADAMEC stole $54,000 from her, the criminal complaint alleges.

Ms. Masters alleges on-camera that ADAMEC laughed at her and dared her to go to The Florida Bar, becoming evasive when she called about $54,000 in settlement proceeds he stole and refused to return.

ADAMEC's law license was suspended July 28, FCN reports.

A March 2017 civil fraud and malpractice complaint is pending against ADAMEC in St. Johns County Circuit Court, before Judge Traynor awaiting a jury trial. alleging that he charged a local woman's father in Georgia some $235,000 to represent her in her uncontested divorce action and a domestic violence injunction, charging phantom expenses and unearned fees.

ADAMEC brags on his website about being a former prosecutor, having "compassion, experience and genuine caring for people," bragging on his "family values" and "integrity," saying he is "the people's lawyer" and a "true, honest, caring and hardworking attorney" who will "settle for no less than the justice [his clients] deserve":

Adamec holds himself to a higher standard and believes that a person's integrity cannot be compromised. These core values are the reason why Adamec is the peoples' lawyer and when people are represented by him, they will get a true, honest, caring and hard working attorney on their side ... an attorney that will settle for no less than the justice that they deserve.

Christopher W. Adamec, P.A.: Expert Counsel and Personal Service Right in Our Own Backyard

Posted by: Caryn Best in Uncategorized 
cwa--professional_photo_(1)I was looking forward to meeting Attorney Christopher W. Adamec, P.A. because I was aware of the generous support he has provided to our local schools, including Mill Creek Elementary, Ward’s Creek Elementary and Pacetti Bay Middle School. Adamec set up practice in the World Golf Village area about two years ago and in October he will move The Law Offices of Christopher W. Adamec, P.A., Attorney and Counselor at Law to a storefront location at The Shoppes of Murabella for better visibility. “Most of our business has been word-of-mouth which is a great testament to our service and value, but we want more of our neighbors to know that they don’t have to go to Jacksonville for excellent counsel or representation,” said Adamec.
Adamec’s services include family law, personal injury and criminal defense. His rates are more affordable than people might expect, starting at $75 per hour for consultation in family law and other matters, and no fee for personal injury consultation. Adamec explains, “Fees are definitely one of the biggest misconceptions about seeing an attorney.  For example, I recently helped a couple divorcing who had agreed on their marital settlement. I was able to take care of all their paperwork and get everything finalized in about two weeks so they could get on with their lives and the fee was under $2,000.” He added, “Unfortunately we’re seeing divorce really bog down the court system right now and create major headaches for people who are ready to move on. There’s a lot of paperwork and if it’s not handled correctly, it can result in multiple courthouse visits. An attorney can ease some of the hassle, worry and frustration in a situation that’s already stressful.”
Personal service is of utmost importance to Adamec. His family law services range from trusts and wills to divorce and child support; his personal injury experience ranges from auto accidents to medical malpractice, and he also handles criminal defense for traffic, misdemeanors and felonies. His clients are not passed off to less-experienced associates – Adamec handles cases personally and with care. “I’m people-oriented. I believe strongly in working and giving back in the community in which you live,” said Adamec, a resident of the King & Bear in World Golf Village. “That’s why I donate to each of the local schools, not just the one my sons attend.” 
Much of Adamec’s experience was gleaned from the time he spent as a Prosecutor for the State of Florida representing victims of crime.  “Being a State Prosecutor is a tough job but it really prepares you for the Florida court system and legal process in a way that nothing else can,” explains Adamec. I suspect the same dedication, precision and competitive spirit that earned Attorney Christopher W. Adamec, P.A. a tennis scholarship to the University of Miami have been the keys to his success as a State of Florida Prosecutor and now as a successful Attorney in private practice. After getting his undergraduate degree from the University of Miami, he earned his law degree at Florida Coastal.  He has admissions to practice law with the State of Florida, United States District Court of the Northern District of Florida and the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida. In addition to St. Johns County, Adamec serves Duval, Alachua, Bradford, Baker, Clay and Union counties. Visit his website at www.adameclaw.com, send him an email at chris@adameclaw.com or give him a call at (888) 4ADAMEC to learn more.



"Political Tourist" BILL McCLURE once listed himself as President and CEO of company under "ongoing" investigation



Medi+M.D. was raided by criminal investigators in 2014: Tsouris "Political Tourist" WILLIAM ANTHONY McCLURE has characterized himself as simply an investor, but in happier days, he once listed himself as CEO and President.   Oops.

RE-ELECT ST. AUGUSTINE MAYOR NANCY SHAVER























I support the re-election of Mayor Nancy Shaver:

St. Augustine Mayor Nancy Shaver is a statewide and national leader on adaptation to global ocean level rise and opposition to offshore oil drilling.  

She's won plaudits for refocusing the mission of City Hall in our Nation's Oldest City on what matters to citizens:


  1. Putting residents first.  
  2. Asking questions, demanding answers and expecting democracy.
  3. Conducting fair hearings in zoning cases.   We stopped 7-Eleven from building at May and San Marco.  We did it by respecting rights and providing a fair hearing.  There's now a construction project to build a roundabout at the congested intersection.  Imagine what that intersection would have looked like otherwise.
  4. Ending corruption.  Mayor Shaver is the only local elected official who supports Justice for Michelle O'Connell.
  5. "Raising the bar" on ethical behavior.   
  6. Preserving history, nature and livability.
  7. "Government is a customer service organization."  Enough oppression.  Enough insouciance and insolence from local government.  We're building a customer service organization of which we will be proud.  Mayor Shaver's inspiring everyone to "up their game."
  8. Facts and science matter -- decisions must be data-based.  We in the "reality-based community" appreciate that our heroic Mayor  Nancy Shaver is all about respecting the value of a dollar. No more knee-jerk waste, fraud, abuse, misfeasance, malfeasance, flummery, dupery and nincompoopery.
  9. Refusing to meet secretly with zoning applicants.
  10. Writing and applying laws zealously, fairly, with common sense.
  11. "Our streets are not lively." Commission unanimously enacted five ordinances on visual artists' rights, settling Bates v. City of St. Augustine (Bates II).
  12. Updating and improving infrastructure -- fixing aging decrepit streets, sewers and water pipes, prioritizing what gets fixed first.
  13. Increasing mobility -- coping with all of the extra traffic caused by poor transportation planning and too-rapid growth of the surrounding county.
  14. Increasing transparency -- improving public access to information about our government.
  15. Best credit rating ever, with expert financial management, greatly improved from the days when the city was run as a country store, under corrupt former City Manager WILLIAM BARRY HARRISS.





In the bad 'ole days, so-called "good 'ole boys" in City Hall almost ran our town into the ground.  

For decades, speculators a/k/a developers, Florida School for the Deaf and Blind and Flagler College willy-nilly destroyed historic homes.  

They tore down our history.  

Our town was ruled by the likes of ROBERT MICHAEL GRAUBARD, with City Hall selling its wares.

When I called these rapacious, tree-killing, wetland-destroying criminaloid corporate critters "speculators," I was actually threatened by corrupt Mayor JOE BOLES a/k/a "Joseph Lester Boles, Jr."   They're still "speculators."  

Some supercilious speculators are now angry that the City is too "pro-resident." 

What a difference four years makes.

As President Ronald Reagan said, "You ain't seen nothin' yet."




Four years ago, "We, the People" triumphed as "upstart" Nancy Shaver (that's what the Record called her), defeated JOE BOLES.  Once thought he'd be MAYOR FOR LIFE.  BOLES thought he hung the moon.

Other-directed goobers JOE BOLES, along with ex-Mayor "LEN WEEKS," a/k/a Claude Leonard Weeks, Jr. and ex-City Manager WILLIAM BARRY HARRIS and devious developer mouthpiece GEORGE MORRIS McCLURE allowed  a "demolition derby," and a boatload of other bad policies, including allowing developers to abuse promiscuosly "Planned Unit Developments" (PUDs), which Cathy Brown calls "a sneaky way to get around zoning."

  • No more GEORGE McCLURE flummery, dupery and nincompoopery.
  • No more no-bid contracts and leases, like the 81 St. George Street below-market lease for venal ex-Mayors Weeks and Boles (Florida Cracker Cafe and Savannah Sweets), violating our rights to reasonable expectations of probity.
  • No more illegal demolition of historic structures, like DON PEDRO FORNELLS HOUSE and ECHO HOUSE.


Mayor Shaver reminds me of what Winston Church said about Franklin Roosevelt:





Mayor Shaver is running against two extremist "Political Tourists:

JACKIE ROCK: 

  • First-term Anastatia Mosquito Control Commissioner of St. Johns County.
  • Another cognitive miser.  
  • JR is in Europe until August 24, 2018, drawing $500/month pay for AMCD meetings she won't be attending.  
  • Racist Rev. RONALD RAWLS' cat's paw candidate.
  • Angry advocate for removing St. Augustine's monument to Confederate veterans.  
  • City Commissioners rightly rejected her argument -- we're contextualizing the monument, not destroying it.  Healing, not division. 
  • This second "Political Tourist" does not pass the laugh test.
On or before August 28, 2018, vote for Mayor Nancy Shaver.  It's the Feast of St. Augustine -- the 453rd anniversary of the naming of our City by Pedro Menendez de Aviles.

It's up to everyone.

It takes a village to save "our village," as County Commission Chairman Henry Dean calls it. 

Re-elect Mayor Nancy Shaver.
