Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    40%
    Auto accidents are the most common type of case we handle. That doesn't mean they are simple, though. Auto cases can be quite complex, and I spend a great deal of time keeping abreast of the most recent court decisions affecting this area of practice.

    20 years, 200 cases

  2. Motorcycle accident
    20%
    Motorcycle accidents often leave their victims injured for life. Make sure the lawyer you choose has the experience and resources to get you every last dollar you deserve.

  4. Medical malpractice
    10%
    Medical Malpractice is the most complex and expensive type of litigation we handle, often costing in excess of $50,000.00 to bring to trial. Make sure you choose an attorney with the resources to aggressively represent your interests

    20 years

  5. Trucking accident
    10%
    Some attorneys think trucking accidents are just big car accidents, but they couldn't be more wrong. Complex federal regulations governing the trucking industry could make or break your case. Make sure you hire an attorney who understands the complexity of these cases and has the experience necessary to adequately represent you.

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. I practice in the area of personal Injury and Medical Malpractice all over New York State, Pennsylavania, and in the Federal Courts of both states.

Adam has practiced general personal injury since 2004. Adam is a tenacious trial lawyer who thrives on being in the courtroom.

 

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 has served on numerous boards, including the Pipiline 4 Progress, the Elmira Jackals Youth Hockey Association, and Family Services of Chemung County.

 

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 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.

Put your mind at ease
I was wrongly accused of something that could have competely derailed my personal and professional life. Being a former prosecutor, Adam had the insight to realize that I had not committed a crime. But he could also see how a prosecutor could misconstrue the circumstances of the situation, much to my detriment. Adam not only immediately responded to my situation, dropping everything to help me, his involvement precluded me from making a mistake that could have ended in my arrest. I will always be thankful for his help and without hesitation recomend his services to any friend or family member.

Had a wonderful result by using this attorney. Times were very hard, I never dealt with issues like this in my life. I felt it was a lost cause! My attorney knew better. The only problem I had was being convinced things would be alright. He really knew his stuff!!

Adam Gee is a methodically goal orientated professional In this experience with Adam I was very impressed with his smooth demeanor and knowledgeable expertise. I was also impressed and very thankful for the extra help he provided me with outstanding bills and services that I had accumulated before and during my association with him. This was done AFTER we accepted and I had signed off. Adam was a pleasure to work with.

To whomever this may concrn,
Adam was my attorney for an auto accident I had in 2002. From the very first day I met him I was at ease talking with him. He always called me back with'in the day if I called him for any reason. He also had me in on several occasions to discuss my case. I was also very happy with the amount of settlement he was able to get for me. I would like to Thank Adam and the whole firm for the way I was treated during my suite.
