CRIMINAL DEFENSE, PERSONAL INJURY, DWI/DUI, TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS
Adam started his legal career in 2000 doing transactional work representing some of the country’s largest financial institutions for a large multinational law firm in Charlotte, North Carolina. In late 2001, already contemplating a career change, Adam was a passenger in a vehicle that was struck by a drunk driver who ran a stoplight. His personal experience with hiring the wrong personal injury attorney that convinced Adam to settle for less than fair compensation drove Adam to dedicate his legal career to helping those who found themselves in similar circumstances. He wanted to be a better advocate for his clients than the one he had for himself, and ensure that his clients got the maximum fair and just compensation they deserve.
Since 2003, Adam has developed a reputation for taking on the Goliath insurance companies and working tirelessly to protect the rights of clients who suffered bodily injury as a result of someone else’s negligence. Adam has tried over 100 cases to jury verdict and collected more than $100M in compensation for his clients through settlements and jury verdicts in numerous courts across the country, including U.S. courts of appeals, U.S. district courts, North Carolina State Superior Court, North Carolina State District Court and the North Carolina Industrial Commission. He is a lifetime member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum which acknowledges trial attorneys who have had jury verdicts in excess of $1M. Adam is routinely featured in Super Lawyers and Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America and numerous other publications and award listings. Adam’s cases have often been prominently featured on local and national news outlets including Sirius XM and Inside Edition and he is also frequently sought out by these outlets for his legal opinions on current legal affairs.
Over the years, Adam has built his personal injury practice through vast word of mouth, excellent and widespread reputation in the community, and staying true to the values he and his partner Mathew Flatow founded SeiferFlatow Law Firm upon a decade ago: putting the client’s needs first, always keeping the client involved and updated throughout the process, never taking the easy road and settling for less than the full value of the case, and treating his clients like family. To this day, that is how Adam approaches every case so he can ensure that his clients do not endure the same fate he did back almost two decades ago.

"In our field, we cannot promise what a judge or jury will do. We cannot force a company into a better settlement. What we can do is guarantee that our clients will have the best chance of success by explaining a detailed process that will guide their case. Each client gets a roadmap from our firm on how best to position their case in order to strive for an optimal outcome. Doing this maximizes each client’s chances for success in whatever forum. We do not win every case, but our record is quite impressive, mainly because of this approach. In many instances, the cases we lose are the ones where our clients are most appreciative because they know that they got great representation and no corners were cut in the process."
Adam zealously fights to get his clients the personal injury compensation they deserve. Adam shares the mission of the firm – to help level the playing field for his clients by combining unparalleled customer service along with aggressive advocacy to protect his client’s livelihood and help them receive compensation for medical bills and lost wages.
