About Adam Garth

Adam Garth is the managing partner of the Las Vegas, Nevada office at Quintairos, Prieto, Wood & Boyer, P.A. With over three decades of legal experience, Mr. Garth is recognized for his expertise in complex commercial litigation and liability defense, particularly in the areas of medical malpractice defense for physicians, health care providers, hospitals, and medical organizations.

Mr. Garth brings a unique approach to his litigation practice, aggressively defending health providers and facilities by pursuing all possible avenues for early case disposition and forcing those pursuing a case to adhere to all legal requirements, laws and rules.  His approach is to relentlessly pursue the rights of his clients by whatever legal and ethical means are necessary and available to achieve a favorable result.

As a seasoned trial lawyer, Mr. Garth is deeply involved in all aspects of litigation. His practice includes pre-trial preparation, conducting depositions, handling discovery and dispositive motions, and representing clients at hearings, mediations, arbitrations, and settlement negotiations for all forms of medical professional liability claims.  He is known for his appearances before administrative and licensing boards for health care providers throughout Nevada, where he tirelessly advocates on behalf of medical professionals and healthcare providers, addressing licensing board actions and complaints.  Additionally, Mr. Garth provides counsel to health care providers regarding employment contract negotiations and the formation of their respective professional corporations., to secure them the most advantageous compensation packages possible for his clients while advising on their rights and obligations.

Prior to relocating to Nevada, he was similarly engaged in health care liability defense litigation in California.  In addition to his prior litigation practice in California, Mr. Garth served as a Temporary Judge in both the Fresno Superior Court and the Los Angeles Superior Court, presiding over a wide range of cases on a voluntary basis, including small claims and traffic matters.

Before relocating out West, Mr. Garth was an extremely diverse practitioner in New York, serving as both a litigator and later as a principal law clerk to a New York State Supreme Court Justice. In this role, he acted as the primary legal advisor to the judge, handling diverse civil litigation matters, such as personal injury, matrimonial, products liability, medical malpractice, municipal, tax certiorari, contract and commercial litigation, real estate and land use disputes, and residential and commercial foreclosure proceedings. He reviewed all ex parte submissions and played a crucial role in settlement conferences, jury charge conferences, status conferences, pre-trial conferences, and preliminary conferences.  Additionally, Mr. Garth authored thousands of decisions on a broad range of civil litigation matters on the judge's behalf.  Attorneys on both sides regularly sought his intervention for speedy, fair and effective resolutions to complex cases.  As a result, his judicial part disposed of more cases by more than 50% over and above any other judicial officer in a five-county suburban New York City judicial department.  His many years of practical legal experience afforded him a unique ability to effectively and efficiently dispose of a vast range of matters while at the same time dispensing due justice to the litigants.

Prior to his entry in the New York State court system, Mr. Garth's private practice primarily focused on catastrophic plaintiff's personal injury cases and products liability cases engaging in the full litigation spectrum from inception to disposition.

As the managing attorney for multiple law offices for nearly seven years, Mr. Garth was a key resource for new and experienced attorneys, providing them with invaluable legal strategies and guidance. He spearheaded a comprehensive reorganization of his previous firm's personnel and protocols, spanning from pre-litigation to trial. His leadership extended to the supervision of a professional and paraprofessional staff of over sixty employees, ensuring efficient case management. Mr. Garth personally reviewed all cases and formulated litigation plans for each, further solidifying his reputation as a strategic legal thinker. He has also skillfully prosecuted and defended various commercial and contract litigation matters for individuals and corporations in both State and Federal Courts. He has often been referred to as the "lawyer's lawyer" by providing an avenue for the firm's attorneys to consult on a regular basis.

Mr. Garth earned his Juris Doctor degree from Syracuse University College of Law in 1991 in Syracuse, New York where he served on the executive board of the Syracuse Journal of International Law and Commerce.  He graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts in 1988.

He is licensed to practice law in Nevada, California (inactive), New York, Massachusetts (inactive), New Jersey (inactive), and the District of Columbia (inactive). He is admitted to the United States District Courts for the Southern, Eastern, Northern and Western Districts of New York, District of New Jersey, Central and Eastern Districts of California, District of Nevada, Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and United States Supreme Court. Outside of his legal practice, Mr. Garth remains actively engaged in the legal community. He serves as Vice Chair of the Southern Nevada Disciplinary Board for the State Bar of Nevada, charged with screening ethics complaints made against attorneys as well as hearing attorney disciplinary matters and recommending warranted disciplinary action against attorneys violating the State's ethical rules and requirements, demonstrating his commitment to upholding the highest ethical standards within the legal profession. Additionally, he has lent his expertise as a Mock Trial Program Attorney Coach for California State University in Fresno, nurturing the next generation of legal professionals.
