Adina Lewis, Partner


Adina has spent more than a decade working in the field of Trusts and Estates having been involved in many matters spanning from drafting estate planning documents, representing clients in contested proceedings, administration of estates and other litigation matters.

Admitted to the New York State Bar, she is a member of the New York State Bar Association and the New Rochelle Bar Association.  She completed her law degree at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law having served as a Managing Editor of the Cardozo Women’s Law Journal as well as working as a research assistant to Professor Michael Herz assisting in the publication of a widely used legal textbook, Elements of the Law.  Her Bachelor of Arts is from New York University where she graduated cum laude and was admitted to the Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society.

Before working at Lewis and Garbuz, Adina had interned with the Honorable Budd Goodman, New York State Supreme Court, at the National Council for the Child in Jerusalem, Israel as well as having worked at the New York State Attorney General’s office, Bureau of Consumer Frauds and Protection.  Adina also worked at the Women’s Health Initiative at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine as part of a ground-breaking national study which researched long term effects of diet, health and lifestyle, and hormone replacement therapy in postmenopausal women.  Part of her role involved leading focus groups which, among other matters, was looking to determine psychological barriers to women getting mammograms.  Additionally she lectured regularly on matters relating to health initiatives regarding health in post menopausal women.  Her desire to advocate for the personal needs of vulnerable populations such as the elderly, children and persons with disabilities has now carried through to her legal practice where she with her partner, Lawrence Garbuz, and our whole legal team strive everyday to provide excellent personalized, accessible and competent legal advice to individuals.

In addition to her practice of law, Adina remains involved in many charitable organizations serving on the Treasurer and Executive Board Member of the Young Israel of New Rochelle, President of Women’s League of New Rochelle as well as being an active member of the Cardozo Law School, SAR Academy and Yeshiva University communities.
