Adam J. Ortlieb

Adam Ortlieb joined Dughi, Hewit & Domalewski as an associate in April 2019, focusing his practice on the representation of physicians and other healthcare providers in the area of medical-malpractice defense.

Mr. Ortlieb’s approach is to first take the time to understand the medicine behind each case, then use these facts to build a defense strategy on behalf of the healthcare provider(s) he’s representing. 

Following his graduation from law school in 2017, Mr. Ortlieb clerked for the Honorable Joseph P. Quinn, P.J.Cv., Presiding Civil Judge in the Law Division, Monmouth County, then worked as an associate with another medical-malpractice firm in New Jersey. There, Mr. Ortlieb assisted with the day-to-day management of medical-malpractice cases, including drafting of dispositive motions and engaging experts to review and provide opinions in defense of his clients. Mr. Ortlieb has also had experience in taking the depositions of fact witnesses and experts.

Mr. Ortlieb graduated magna cum laude from Rutgers University Law School, where he served as the associate managing editor of the Rutgers University Law Review and as a board member of the intramural mock-trial team. His law review note, Mandatory Victim Restitution Act: A Replacement for Victims’ Intentional Tort Claims for Violent Crimes in New Jersey was published in Volume 69 of the Rutgers University Law Review

During his time on campus, Mr. Ortlieb also served as a student leader of the Rutgers Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, where he helped prepare personal-income-tax returns for low-income residents in Camden, NJ. He had an internship with the Camden Center for Law and Social Justice, where he represented low-income individuals in domestic-violence matters and assisted clients in filing immigration paperwork.  

After attending Temple University, where he was a member of the mock-trial team, Mr. Ortlieb graduated magna cum laude from Temple University. He also graduated from the Temple Honors Program and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He is admitted to practice in the New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.

Mr. Ortlieb, who currently lives in East Windsor, New Jersey, enjoys traveling, especially to Philadelphia, where he has season tickets to the Eagles.
