Being born and raised in Buffalo, New York, the ultimate working class city, has had a profound influence on Marshall Adler’s life. Although he began his law practice representing insurance companies and corporations in a large law firm setting, for the past 30 years, he decided to represent the same hard working families he grew up with in Buffalo. He enjoys the opportunity to know each and every one of his clients on a personal level, which he could not do in the large law firm setting.
Marshall Adler’s representation of injured workers and their families during the past 30 years has been a testament of his enduring desire to continue to help working families throughout the State of Florida in their time of need.
