Adam Silverstein, Attorney at Law
Adam Silverstein is an experienced trial attorney with a background in real estate and construction, which provides a blend of legal and very practical knowledge bases. Clients are far-ranging, as interpersonal and business disputes tend to vary wildly. “Business divorce,” is a common theme. His view is that litigation, while a fairly certain method of resolving a dispute, should be a last resort after other efforts prove inadequate. War, as it were, being a continuation of policy through other means. Mr. Silverstein also handles most of the firm’s criminal matters, including financial crimes and represents people in local, State and federal courts.
Mr. Silverstein has been practicing since 1995 and is admitted in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and the federal district courts of New Jersey and New York. His experience, aside from trial work, includes significant transactional practice, as well as business formation and dissolution. He has a bachelor’s degree in English Language and Literature from The University of Chicago and a Juris Doctorate from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University. Raised on City Island in the Bronx, he now resides in Brooklyn.
