Adam Milasincic is a trial and appellate lawyer whose focus is complex commercial litigation. Before joining AZA, Mr. Milasincic was a litigator at Baker Botts LLP, where he represented plaintiffs and defendants in lawsuits involving securities regulations, fiduciary duties, partnership disputes, environmental liabilities, pipeline development in Texas’s Eagle Ford Shale play, and various business torts. He also defended personal-injury cases for a major insurer.

One recent trial win for Mr. Milasincic came in  March 2014, when he and another AZA lawyer won an $11.4 million jury verdict for Function One Consulting in a Houston business disparagement case.  This award is one of the largest of its kind in Texas during the past decade.

The day after Mr. Milasincic learned that he passed the Texas bar, Texas Supreme Court Justice Dale Wainwright called to congratulate him because he earned the highest score on the July 2011 bar examination. Because of this accomplishment, Mr. Milasincic was twice featured in the Texas Lawyer.

He received his law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law, where he served as a Virginia Law Review articles editor and earned the Carl M. Franklin Award, which goes to the student with the highest first-year grade point average. During law school, Mr. Milasincic interned for Judge Lynn N. Hughes of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, and, as a member of the law school’s Supreme Court Litigation Clinic, contributed to the winning briefs in Borough of Duryea v. Guarnieri, 131 S.Ct. 2488 (2011) and Nevada Commission on Ethics v. Carrigan, 131 S.Ct. 1899 (2011).

Prior to law school, Mr. Milasincic served as the communications director to the Realtors Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh and as the chief of staff and campaign manager for a Pennsylvania legislator. While earning his journalism degree from Kent State University, he also worked briefly as a newspaper reporter.
