Background

Adam Garth is an experienced attorney, litigator, negotiator and court insider and has been for more than 25 years. Mr. Garth’s current legal practice is civil litigation defense for physicians and organizations in the health care industry involving matters of professional malpractice. He is licensed to practice in 5 states including California (1993), New York (1991), New Jersey (1993), Massachusetts (1992) and the District of Columbia (1992), and he is admitted in multiple Federal jurisdictions including the Southern, Eastern, Northern and Western Districts of New York, the District of New Jersey, the Central District of California, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the United States Supreme Court.

In addition to his private practice, Mr. Garth has been appointed as a Temporary Judge in the Fresno County Superior Court, hearing and trying small claims matters in the absence of a full-time bench officer. He performed similar functions for the Los Angeles Superior Court for traffic court matters.

Mr. Garth previously served as the Principal Court Attorney to a New York State Supreme Court Justice where he acted as the judge’s chief legal advisor on all matters. He drafted decisions, orders and memoranda for the judge’s signature, conferenced cases, prepared jury charges and reviewed all submissions made to the judge. His judicial branch responsibilities included conducting complex settlement negotiations with the attorneys on all matters, leading to one of the highest case resolution rates in the New York City metropolitan area.
