About Me

Injured as a result of someone else's negligence? The insurance companies giving you the run around? You are not alone! Insurance companies increase their bottom line by repeatedly shirking their obligations to their own clients. That's why I LOVE to sue insurance companies.

Adam practices in the areas of Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice all over New York State, Pennsylavania, and in the Federal Courts of both states.



Adam joined the Ziff Law Firm in February, 2004. Adam works closely with Carl Hayden and Jim Reed who have more than 50 years of collective personal injury and medical malpractice experience.  Adam is a tenacious trial lawyer who thrives on being in the courtroom.


 


The partners in the Ziff Law Firm were so impressed with Adam's hard work and intelligence that he was promoted to full partnership in record time-- less than two years after he joined the firm!  The Star-Gazette covered the Ziff Law Firm "youth movement" in an article published February 12, 2006.


 


Adam received his Bachelor of Science degree from Allegheny College, where he graduated as an Alden Scholar (Dean's List). Adam was also a Dean's List student at the Syracuse University College of Law, graduating with a Juris Doctorate Degree in 1996.


 


Adam began his legal career with the Chemung County District Attorney's Office as an Assistant District Attorney. Adam quickly rose to the rank of felony prosecutor, where he worked on the most serious crimes occurring in Chemung County. In 2000, Adam left the DA's Office to become head of the Legal Department for the Chemung County Department of Social Services. In that capacity, Adam managed an office of 7 attorneys and was responsible for the presentation of all child abuse and neglect proceedings, termination of parental rights, and juvenile delinquency matters in Chemung County. Adam has extensive courtroom experience including the arguing of appeals before our Appellate Division and the Court of Appeals; New York's highest court.



 


Adam is a member of the New York Trial Lawyers Association, the New York Academy of Trial Lawyers, as well as the Chemung County and New York State Bar Associations.  Adam serves on numerous boards, including the Pipiline 4 Progress and the Elmira Jackals Youth Hockey Association.


 


Adam lives in Elmira with his wife and two sons.  Adam spends what little free time he has following his boys' athletic events, including hockey, soccer and lacrosse, and manages to squeeze in a little hockey for himself every now and again.  Adam and his family enjoy boating, tubing and skiing on Keuka Lake in our all too brief summers.
