After graduating from Albany Law and passing the bar exam, Kevin focused his career nearly exclusively working in criminal defense and then as a prosecutor for several years. After leaving the Ulster County District Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted primarily guns, drugs, and gang related crimes, Kevin went back to helping clients with criminal defense. He was been working exclusively as a criminal defense attorney since 2010.
Adam grew up on Binghamton, New York. Following high school, he went on to attend the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where he majored in Philosophy. Adam returned to upstate New York to attend Albany Law School and graduated in 2012. Following the July 2012 NYS Bar Exam, Adam began as a law clerk at a law firm with Kevin. Once he was admitted in February 2013, Adam began to formally represent clients facing criminal charges alongside Kevin.
Both Kevin and Adam have achieved success individually while zealously advocating for clients – though meticulous review of the evidence in a case, thorough motion practice as well as though trial results. However, they’ve found that working in tandem is when they have most consistently achieved our clients’ goals.
Kevin and Adam met while Adam was in law school and quickly became great friends. They knew almost immediately that they both had a passion for criminal defense and that working together they would be able to help clients using each of their unique skill sets. Adam joined a firm that Kevin was working for upon graduation from Albany Law School and they have continued to work tougher on criminal defense ever since. Their professional relationship has now spanned two different law firms before deciding to join forces with their own firm. While both Kevin and Adam have focused their career on criminal defense they understand that this most important area of the law is ever evolving that they have dedicated themselves to evolving and becoming better lawyers each day in order to accomplish the goals of their clients.
Kevin and Adam are also supported by their Paralegal and Office Manager,
Taylor Kaun. Taylor has been working with both Kevin and Adam since 2016. She is an integral part of the team helping Kevin, Adam, and their clients navigate the process and often providing valuable insight into the cases. Kevin, Adam, and Taylor all believe strongly in what they do and focus their efforts collectively to achieve their clients’ desired results.
