History & Summary
While banks often require homeowners to have insurance on their homes and apartments, their illegal activities in the form of secret kickbacks to insurers were uncovered by Adam and his team, resulting in substantial damages to consumers nationwide. Most of these practices have since been prohibited thanks to Adam's efforts, which earned him several national honors including the “Most Effective Lawyer Award” from the American Legal Publication.
He is widely considered to be a game-changer in his role investigating, leading and resolving many of these cases that continue to be litigated today in federal courts across the country against its largest insurers (Assurant, QBE and American Modern) and banks / mortgage servicers (Wells Fargo, Chase, HSBC, Citi, Bank of America, PNC, Ocwen, Nationstar, SLS, SPS, PennyMac, Seterus, Regions, BB&T, LoanCare, Everbank, Selene, U.S. Bank, Greentree, Fay Servicing, Carrington, Roundpoint, Cenlar, etc.).
Adam and his team filed the first class action lawsuits challenging the illegal practices of force-placed insurance against Wells Fargo Bank, and were successful in certifying the only litigated class of Florida homeowners with hazard insurance damage. See e.g., Williams v. Wells Fargo Bank, et al, 11-cv-21233 (S.D. Fla.) (J. Scola). Since that time, Adam has coordinated a coalition of almost 59 different plaintiffs’ law firms from all across the country and successfully brought claims against the largest banks and mortgage services as a result of these coordinated efforts. In addition over 30 class action cases that have already settled and been completed, additional force-placed class action cases are currently being litigated by Adam and his team in Florida and New Jersey. His team is asked to review and investigate claims on behalf of new defendants regularly.
Adam has served as lead counsel in some of the nation’s largest consumer class actions, such as LiPuma vs. American Express; various securities class actions including the Lancer Partners litigation; and has represented certified classes of consumers nationwide in cases ranging from managed care insurance, to life insurance products and electronic health records.
Adam has also worked with many different law firms as co-lead counsel to resolve other cases, such as one of the largest antitrust actions ever against a chemical company, obtaining one of the nation’s largest jury verdicts against DuPont, and helping represent most of the victims of the $1.2 billion Scott Rothstein South Florida Ponzi scheme leading to a nearly a total recovery.
Adam is very familiar with litigating class action cases before various District Courts across the country, having previously prosecuted and currently prosecuting numerous class actions in the District of New Jersey. See for example: Gallo v. PHH Mortgage, No. 12-cv-01117 (D.N.J.) (J. Hillman) (appointed as co-lead counsel in nationwide class action settlement with a final approval hearing set in July 2017); Louisiana Wholesale v. Becton Dickinson, et al., No. 05-cv-01602 (D.N.J.) (Linares, J.), (nationwide settlement of antitrust class action on behalf of direct purchasers); Quarashi v. Caliber Home Loans, et al., No. 16-cv-09245 (D.N.J.) (J. Martinotti) (nationwide class action against four different mortgage servicers and insurance company). Adam has also taken on various roles in other pending class actions in the Southern District of Florida, including the Takata Air Bag class action.
He was appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Lead Counsel Committee in the multidistrict litigation, In re: Herbal Supplements Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation, 1:15- cv-05070 (N.D. Ill.) and served in leadership positions in numerous antitrust class action cases, including In re Marine Hose Antitrust Litig., No. 08-md-1888 (S.D. Fla.); Miller v. Dyadic International, No. 07-cv-80948 (S.D. Fla.); In re: Mushroom Direct Purchase Antitrust Litig., 06-cv-00620l (E.D. Pa.); Louisiana Wholesale v. Becton Dickinson, et al., No. 05-cv-01602 (D.N.J.); Natchitoches Parrish Hospital v. Tyco (In re Sharps Containers), No. 05-cv- 12024 (D. Mass.); and Bruhl v. Price Waterhouse Coopers, International, et al., No. 03-cv-23044 (S.D. Fla.).
Adam has been lead counsel in many Florida statewide class actions like Pain Clinic et al. v. Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc., 12-49371 (Fla 11th Cir. Ct. 2012), in which he secured a nationwide settlement against Allscripts Healthcare Solution on behalf of thousands of small physician practices regarding the sale and marketing of defective electronic healthcare software.
Adam’s practice also encompasses complex commercial litigation matters, including securities fraud actions. Adam has served as chairperson in numerous NASD securities arbitrations, and actively participates in national and local seminars and panels. He has published numerous articles on both class action and securities litigation.
With a history of fighting corporate wrongdoing, Adam has been instrumental to affecting change through the practice of law. As a first year lawyer, Adam investigated and discovered secret testing conducted by Dupont and helped his team strike DuPont’s pleadings to settle claims for over 30 growers across country and Costa Rica. In that same year, Adam conducted his first jury trial which resulted in a jury verdict of $125 million dollars for two Benlate growers and the settlement of over 40 individual farmers' claims in the U.S. and Costa Rica .
He has appeared on the cover of the Wall Street Journal and many other national publications thanks to his stellar reputation as a plaintiffs attorney and impressive successes in a multitude of bench and jury trials in state and federal court.
