Adam Gaslowitz

Gaslowitz Frankel, LLC

    For almost 40 years, Adam Gaslowitz has practiced in the fiduciary field, initially as a transactional estate and business planning and tax attorney and then, beginning shortly after founding his law firm in 1989, as a fiduciary litigation attorney. By the early 1990’s fiduciary litigation had become the sole focus of his law firm and since then, he has built one of the largest fiduciary litigation boutique firms in the southeast, specializing in complex will, trust, guardianship,
    shareholder, and partnership disputes, and dispute resolution.
    Adam has long been a vocal advocate of mediation instead of litigation as a better way to resolve disputes, giving speeches and writing articles on the subject since the late 1990’s. Since then, he has successfully mediated hundreds of cases as an advocate for his clients, and, since the mid 2000’s, as a neutral mediator.

    A graduate of Emory University’s Goizuetta Business School and The University of Michigan Law School, Adam brings not only a career’s worth of litigation and problem-resolution expertise to his clients but also a deep understanding of the highly charged emotions that are the real drivers of fiduciary conflicts among families and business partners. With a career spent recognizing and navigating the tricky waters of human relationships and the conflicts they generate, and the
    practical expertise of someone who began his career as a transactional attorney, Adam possesses a unique ability to bring understanding to complexity, creativity to impasse, and resolution to conflict.
    Nationally recognized as an expert on estate disputes, Adam has appeared frequently on CNN and The Layman’s Lawyer on estate litigation matters and is frequently quoted in publications such as the New York Times, Time Magazine, the Atlanta Business Chronicle, Trust and Estate Magazine, and Fortune Magazine.
