Adam began his career practicing law as an Assistant District Attorney in the Suffolk County
District Attorney’s Office in 2000 upon his graduation from law school at the University of
Buffalo. As a prosecutor, Adam gained valuable trial experience and proudly served on the
District Attorney’s Gang Prosecution and Animal Cruelty Teams. Subsequently, Adam entered
private practice for approximately thirteen (13) years and focused on defending doctors,
hospitals, and dental professionals in cases involving allegations of professional malpractice. In
2011, Adam became the youngest attorney in his firm’s 30+ year history to be promoted to
partner. In July 2014, Adam was one of three (3) attorneys nationwide to receive the "Rising
Star" award from OMS National Insurance Company/Fortress Insurance Company at their
biannual defense counsel seminar in Chicago where he was also a featured panel speaker for a
presentation on social media and civil litigation at the seminar. While in private practice,
Adam continued his commitment to public service as Vice Chairman of the Smithtown Planning

In 2015, Adam, his wife Stacey Wolk-Oshrin, and his son Jason Oshrin, relocated to Pittsford.
Stacey is a reading teacher at the Council Rock Primary School in Brighton and Jason attends
Calkins Road Middle School as an eighth grader. Jason is a member of the Junior Varisty Golf
Team at Sutherland High School as well. Since their relocation to Rochester, Adam has been a
Principal Appellate Court Attorney at the Appellate Division, Fourth Department, the highest
Court in our region with vast jurisdiction spanning the twenty-two (22) counties surrounding
Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse. Adam is very fortunate to work with some of the very
brightest, most hard working judges in Western New York in a collegial environment. In
addition to his required duties at the Court, Adam participated in the Volunteer Legal Services
Project of Monroe County's Tenant Town Court Program which assists low-income,
unrepresented tenants in defending eviction proceedings in Irondequoit Town Court. In
recognition of the Program’s success, the New York State Bar Association awarded the Fourth
Department the 2018 President's Pro Bono Service Award in the Government Office category. In
his free time, Adam frequently plays racquet sports including platform tennis and pickleball.


Before becoming an attorney, Adam was a New York State Certified baseball umpire. Adam
believes being an umpire prepared him well for life as a lawyer because he had to know the rules
of the game, interpret and apply them, make quick decisions, and speak publicly – sometimes to
people who were not too happy with him. If elected as Pittsford Town Justice, Adam will be a
fair but firm jurist who will use all available tools in order to make sure that everyone is safe,
including the victims of any crime, children, and the accused.

Local judicial elections matter.
