Adam R. Satin

Adam R. Satin received his undergraduate degree from the University of Vermont in 1993. He is a magna cum laude graduate of Suffolk University School of Law and served on its Law Review. He has been a partner with Lubin & Meyer since 2004, focusing in medical malpractice and general liability litigation. His cases have generated more than $145 million in gross verdicts and settlements for clients of the firm.

In 2018, he won a judgment of $6.8 million on behalf of the adult children of a man who died of kidney cancer that should have been diagnosed sooner than it was. In 2016, he won $2.84 million on behalf of the family of a man whose diagnosis of prostate cancer was significantly delayed. In 2012, Attorney Satin achieved two of the five largest verdicts of the year—a $5.83 million verdict for the family of a patient who died after his primary care physician discontinued his aspirin regimen, and a $3,582,831 judgment for the mother of a 12-year-old boy who died after an emergency room doctor failed to transfer him in time to treat a malfunctioning shunt.

Attorney Satin is one of the few attorneys in Massachusetts to obtain an award of punitive damages in a medical malpractice case, having succeeded in convincing a jury that a healthcare provider’s conduct constituted “gross negligence.” His practice has also included multiple successful general liability cases. In 2016, he obtained a $6.1 million settlement on behalf of the family of a young man killed by a drunk driver who had been served excessive amounts of alcohol at multiple Rhode Island bars. In 2006, he obtained an $8.4 million judgment after a jury trial against a member of the clergy who sexually molested a female congregant.

Attorney Satin also handles appellate issues for Lubin & Meyer, and has won appeals before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (Dias v. Brigham Medical Associates, Inc., 438 Mass. 317 (2002)) and the First Circuit Court of Appeals (Harrison v. United States, 284 F.3d 293 (2002)). He successfully reversed the erroneous decision of a trial judge that the plaintiff’s claims were filed too late in violation of the statute of limitations (Dagley, et. al. v. Murphy, et. al., 2013-P-0625, 2014). He has also successfully defended numerous appeals of large jury verdicts obtained by Lubin & Meyer. He is admitted to practice law in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Attorney Satin has been listed by Super Lawyers for 2011–2018 having been named a Massachusetts Rising Stars Super Lawyer from 2005–2010 as published in Boston Magazine. He is also selected for inclusion in New England's Best Lawyers® and The Best Lawyers in America® each year since 2012.
