Adam Amirault is an associate in Coffey Modica O’Meara Capowski’s Buffalo office, where he supports the firm’s Litigation/Appellate Strategy and Consulting Group.  


Adam draws on his experience in the criminal legal sector with the Appeals and Post-Conviction Unit of the Legal Aid Bureau of Buffalo. He first joined that unit during law school as a New York Pro Bono Scholar, remained there after graduation as a staff attorney, and later served as the unit’s Managing Attorney. It was there that he polished his persuasive writing and research skills that he applies to the firm’s high-stakes complex litigation.
