Adrienne comes to the firm having recently completed her second judicial clerkship for the Honorable Jessica R. Mayer in New Jersey. Adrienne first clerked for Judge Mayer at the trial level, when Judge Mayer was one of four multi-county litigation (mass-tort) judges in the state, and was honored to return to the Judge’s chambers upon her elevation to the Appellate Division in 2017. Adrienne graduated magna cum laude and Order of the Coif from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where she served on the Editorial Board of the Cardozo Law Review and as President of the Cardozo Public Interest Law Students Association. As a law student, Adrienne interned with Cardozo’s Housing Rights Clinic and Criminal Defense Clinic, and volunteered with the Unemployment Action Center and the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund Pro-Bono Project. She also served as a teaching assistant to Professor Stewart E. Sterk and a research assistant to Professor Richard Bierschbach. Her student Note, which analyzes the right to counsel under the New York State Constitution, is published in the Cardozo Law Review and was cited with approval in a 2014 criminal court decision. Adrienne is admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey.
