Adam Greene is an associate at the Steinberg Law Firm. Adam focuses on workers’ compensation, personal injury, and social security law and brings a unique background to his experience. After four years of practicing workers’ compensation defense law and representing insurance companies, he will now bring his experience to work on behalf of those injured on the job or due to someone’s negligence. In 2020, Adam was listed in the South Carolina Business Magazine’s Legal Elite.
After spending the last several years defending insurance carriers, employers, third-party administrators, and self-insureds, Adam brings this unique experience of the workers’ compensation system to the firm. Throughout his tenure as a defense attorney, he was counsel on the catastrophic injury/major case unit for multiple insurance carriers which helped him gain special perspective in how complex claims and their administration are handled on the other side. He knows the tactics and strategies that insurance carriers, employers, and their lawyers use to minimize and deny benefits to injured workers. He is looking forward to putting this knowledge to work on behalf of his clients to get them the compensation they need and deserve.
A graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law, Adam became an attorney at a regional defense law firm in the Charleston area. He was recently recognized in the 2020 edition of South Carolina Business Magazine’s Legal Elite.
After earning his bachelor’s degree in Finance from Auburn University in 2014, he attended the University of South Carolina School of Law. At the University of South Carolina School of Law, Adam made the Dean’s list four semesters in a row and was an Associate Symposium Editor of the South Carolina Journal of International Law and Business. Throughout undergrad and law school, Adam held summer internships as a Legislative Intern with the U.S. House of Representatives and as a Judicial Law Clerk with the Richland County Judicial Center.
Adam was often told growing up that he should pursue a career in law due to his natural ability to make a point. He enjoyed reading and writing in school and immediately thrived in law school. His favorite class in law school was torts. Having grown up in the textile producing and manufacturing area of South Carolina, he often witnessed the toll a work injury took on not only the affected individual, but also their family. His background experiences helped shape his career as an attorney in workers’ compensation law. His passion is to have the opportunity to make a difference in an injured worker’s life, whether that is from securing necessary medical treatment or obtaining monetary compensation for the injured victim.
Outside of work, Adam enjoys spending time outdoors hunting, fishing, or simply taking a walk with his wife and Siberian Husky.
