Adam Princenthal is a founding member of Princenthal, May & Wilson and leads the firm’s personal injury department. With more than 20 years of experience, Adam has recovered tens of millions of dollars in trial verdicts and settlements on behalf of victims and families who have suffered serious personal injury or the wrongful death of a loved one as the result of motor vehicle collisions, trucking accidents, defective products, dangerous premises, medical malpractice and other negligent behavior.
Raised in New York City, Adam traveled across the country to attend the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where he obtained his bachelor’s degree. He was then offered a full scholarship to attend law school at Georgia State University College of Law in Atlanta. While in law school, Adam served on the school’s Law Review, competed in national competitions as a member of the school’s Trial Lawyers Association, and won several awards and recognitions. He graduated Magna Cum Laude, receiving his Juris Doctorate in 1999. He then accepted a position with one of the biggest law firms in Atlanta, where he represented national and international corporations in complex business litigation. Adam soon realized, however, that his true passion was to represent real people, not large companies, and to fight for those who have been injured by others. Adam left the “big firm” and has since focused his practice on obtaining justice for victims of serious personal injury and wrongful death.
Adam is admitted to practice in the Georgia Supreme Court, the Georgia Court of Appeals, and all of the Superior and State Courts within the State of Georgia. He is also admitted to the Federal Bar and practices in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia and he United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. Adam is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the American Association of Justice, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Adam serves on the faculty of the Keenan Trial Institute, where he teaches attorneys from around the country.
Adam lives in Marietta, in Cobb County, Georgia, with his wife Karen and their two children.
