Adam is one of the nation’s leading young whistleblower lawyers. He brings with him a special ability not just to litigate, but to investigate – and understand – complex organizations and transactions. His extensive familiarity with tech issues is built on a computer science degree and work as a software engineer at various startups and in Silicon Valley. He is widely admired as a “pit bull with an Ivy League mind” – a fearsome combination for a litigator.
Until 2017, Adam served as an Assistant Attorney General in the New York Office of the Attorney General. While in government, Adam handled a wide range of civil and criminal matters, focusing especially on investigating and litigating qui tam complaints and using the False Claims Act to recover in cases in which the State had been defrauded. Adam drove all aspects of enforcement and prosecution, including investigating, taking testimony, and representing the State in court.
Before joining the Attorney General’s Office, Adam was an attorney at the criminal and civil litigation boutique Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello P.C. He represented individuals throughout the United States and from various countries in state and federal criminal cases, including healthcare fraud, tax, and antitrust prosecutions. And because New York is home to disputes touching on every aspect of the global business world, Adam also represented individuals and corporations at all stages of civil litigation, from complaint through trial, in diverse areas of the law including common law fraud and consumer protection. Adam was selected by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star for litigation.
Adam attended the University of Michigan, where he studied computer science, and spent a year at Tel Aviv University, taking courses in middle eastern politics. After a stint working on cloud computing in Silicon Valley, he attended the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where he was a Levy Scholar in Law and Public Governance. He graduated from Penn cum laude, clerked for Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein in the Southern District of New York, and then spent six months at the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
Steve contributes extensive business and problem-solving experience to challenges that may require litigation – or may help avoid it. Indeed, his perspective on litigation is influenced by his experience as a three-time internet start-up CEO.
Steve served on Ronald Reagan’s 1980 presidential campaign and transition team, and co-chaired the Clinton White House literacy task force Prescription for Reading Partnership.
- He negotiated the first joint venture between Time Inc. and IBM for an educational software product.
- As CEO of a tech-based healthcare start-up, he led the company to a successful acquisition by GE.
- As CEO of an internet media company, he successfully established licensing arrangements with Harvard Medical School, Dartmouth Medical School, and key hospitals.
Steve is also a best-selling, award-winning author and contributes regularly to influential publications. He is only the second person to have Op-Eds published in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal on the same day. Three of his seven books have been best-sellers. As a litigator, Steve believes that telling a clear, compelling story – to the judge, to the jury, and sometimes to a larger audience – is essential.
For his legal work on behalf of active duty members of the armed services, Steve was awarded the American Bar Association’s Outstanding Services Award for the Military Pro Bono Project. He has advised the Chief of Naval Operations, and was one of the first non-Admirals or Marine Generals to serve on the Board of Directors of the United States Naval Institute.
