That's Adam D. Cahn, founding partner of Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP, gracing the cover of Attorney At Law magazine. Adam was featured in the national publication as Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year.
The magazine article chronicles Adam Cahn's "origin story" and his steady rise and phenomenal success as a trial lawyer in the field of personal injury litigation in New York. After winning countless verdicts in the courtroom, these days he guides our firm's continued success behind the scenes as managing partner.
Peer recognition from trade magazine Attorney At Law
Being honored as "Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year" by Attorney At Law magazine is just one in a long line of professional accolades Adam Cahn has received over his 25-year legal career. He has been selected to New York Super Lawyers every year since 2010, as well as being named to the National Trial Lawyers Association's Top 100 Trial Lawyers in New York State. He is a life member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and obtained the highest motor vehicle accident verdict in the state for 2012. The list goes on.

- His own serious pedestrian injury at age 12 and how that translates to compassion for his clients
- Earning his law degree taking night classes while working a day job in real estate finance
- A surprising verdict for his client in his first-ever personal injury trial
- Steadily building a reputation as an effective courtroom lawyer
- Co-founding this firm in 2005 with former colleague Matthew Sakkas and later joining forces with Mitchel Weiss
'I'm happier being the man behind the scenes'
A central theme of the magazine story is Adam's transition from a trial lawyer constantly trying (and winning) cases to the more strategic and public relations role as managing partner. Adam still litigates select cases, but the bulk of his duties are the business side of law and making sure that the firm stays client-centered. He notes as a point of pride that 50 percent of the work comes from former clients who have new personal injury cases or who refer their friends and family. Another 25 percent is referrals from other attorneys who know they are putting their clients in capable and caring hands.
That reputation is no accident (pardon the pun). As Adam Cahn notes in the article, it reflects a deliberate effort to provide clients with personalized attention during a stressful time and to deliver exceptional results that meet or exceed their expectations.
