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 as a member of the Law Review. He has been a partner with Lubin & Meyer since 2004, specializing in medical malpractice and general liability litigation. His cases have generated more than $60 million in gross awards for clients of the firm.
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 and has also convinced jurors that a healthcare provider’s conduct constituted “gross negligence.” 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 has been listed by Super Lawyers for 2012–2014 having been named a Massachusetts Rising Stars Super Lawyer from 2005–2011 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.
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 appeals of large jury verdicts obtained by Lubin & Meyer. He is admitted in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
