Practice Summary
Practice Overview

The Law Offices of Adam L. Shapiro & Associates focuses on accident and injury claims, worker’s compensation matters, Social Security disability claims, along with other general civil litigation. Mr. Shapiro also has extensive experience working as a defense attorney for such institutional clients as Lloyds of London, Harley Davidson, Ford Motor Credit, Bank of America, Legion Insurance Company, The New York State Liquidation Bureau, National Alliance Brokerage Services and New York Rent-A-Car. Such experience gives his practice an edge: having defended high profile clients and their insureds enables him to anticipate the strategy of his adversaries when prosecuting his clients’ claims.

Adam Lowell Shapiro was born January 13, 1968 in Utopia, NY, son of Harvey Shapiro, a Sony Music Senior Executive of over 40 years, and Madeleine Shapiro, a teacher. He graduated from Jamaica High School in 1986 with honors and received a Presidential Award of Excellence and a Regents Scholarship. In 1990, he graduated from The State University of New York at Albany with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a double minor in Philosophy and Criminal Justice. Thereafter, he attended the University of Miami School of Law, earning a Juris Doctor in 1993. While a student he was employed as a law clerk by the Law Offices of Shrier & Koenigsberg of Miami, Florida. He also worked at the Dade County Public Defender’s Office as a certified legal intern where he began attending hearings, taking depositions and trying cases, all before graduating. He is presently a member in good standing of the bars of the States of New York and Florida, United States Supreme Court, United States District Courts for the Southern & Eastern Districts of New York, United States District Courts for the Southern, Middle & Northern Districts of Florida, Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, the New York State Bar Association, American Bar Association, and Strathmore’s Who’s Who.

Upon graduating from law school and while still residing in Florida, Mr. Shapiro worked for two years practicing criminal defense. Subsequently, he was an associate at the Law Offices of Carlos Diaz-Padron, P.C., former Mayor of Miami Shores, Florida, and then the downtown Miami law firm of Hoffman & Hoffman, P.A. At both offices, he practiced national and international insurance and aviation litigation, representing such institutional clients as Harley Davidson, Lloyd’s of London, Ford Motor Credit, Bank of America, and National Alliance Brokerage Services, US Capitol Insurance Company, Eurobank, Interboro Insurance Company, Legion Insurance Company, and their insureds. Mr. Shapiro handled all aspects of insurance and corporate litigation including, but not limited to, drafting policies, reviewing policies, litigating and/or arbitrating policy disputes, defending insureds, protecting carrier’s interests, protecting corporate interests, subrogation actions and coverage matters. Having successfully handled such matters resulted in several of the aforesaid clients placing their business directly with Mr. Shapiro when he returned to New York in 1997. Upon arriving back in his hometown, New York City, Mr. Shapiro was an associate and then a partner at the midtown Park Avenue law firm of Issler & Schrage, LLP where he represented insurance companies, corporate entities, celebrities, as well as individual plaintiffs and defendants. Mr. Harry Issler, Shapiro’s then-employer, was a Rhodes Scholar and Brigadier General in the Judge Advocate General’s office.

In January 2000, Mr. Shapiro started his own – and now renowned – practice, Adam L. Shapiro & Associates, P.C. in Forest Hills, New York, representing the same type of companies and individuals as well as defending Rent-A-Car companies and effectuating real estate transactions. He has handled matters of public interest and has appeared many times in various media outlets such as CBS, NBC, WPIX, News12, NY1, The New York Post and Newsday. Some of these matters consisted of litigation against such high profile people as Sean Combs and Stephen Patrick Morrissey.

Today, Mr. Shapiro has over 20 years of experience in civil litigation, representing both plaintiffs and defendants. This gives him an edge over other attorneys practicing on just one side. His voluminous experience has resulted in Mr. Shapiro being a high-quality aggressive counselor and litigator.

His mantra is “Liberty and Justice for You.” He presently resides in Long Island, New York with his wife and two sons.

Adam is a top notch attorney. He represented me in a legal matter and not only did a great job with the actual work, but was patient and able to explain the process and what was going on in simple (non-legalese) terms that were easy to understand. I would absolutely recommend him.
