Adam John Wolff

Adam graduated from The University of California at Berkeley School of Law in 1994 and attended Harvard Law School for his final year of law school. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from The University of Pennsylvania - Wharton School of Business, magna cum laude, in 1991.

Adam holds a number of leadership positions in the AAML, including President of the New York Chapter, a member of the National Board of Governors, co-chair of the AAML-BVR National Divorce Conference Committee, and participant in several other active committees. He is also a member of the Family Law Section of the New York State Bar Association. Adam is a frequent lecturer, to both attorneys and financial professionals, for these and other organizations. He is also a dedicated member of board of the nonprofit, Kids Creative, and has served on its Board of Directors, which he currently chairs.

Adam’s unique ability to understand complex financial aspects of complicated cases, while remaining sensitive to the deeply personal issues of family law matters as well as maintaining a dry wit, distinguishes him in the industry. His commitment to clear and persuasive writing benefits the Firm’s clients in both settlement and litigation. Adam and his wife, Cindy, a librarian, live in Manhattan with their two college-age sons. They enjoy writing and playing music together.
