Adam Walcoff is dedicated to representing the rights of injured workers in our community. Born and raised in Atlantic County, Adam Walcoff graduated from Mainland Regional High School and attended Rutgers University, graduating with honors. The following year he taught history at Egg Harbor Township High School and was assistant coach for the Eagles swim team and Baseball team. At the end of the school year, he began law school at the Widener University School of Law.
During his law school career, Mr. Walcoff was elected Vice President of the Student Bar Association, earned membership in the Trial Advocacy Honor Society, Phi Delta Phi Honors Chapter and was appointed to the Executive Board of the Widener Law Symposium Journal (Law Review.) He is the published author of the article, “The Restructured Global Environment Facility: A Practical Evaluation for Unleashing the Lending Power of GEF,” 3 Widener L. Symp. J. 485 (Fall 1998).
Upon graduation, Mr. Walcoff was appointed Law Clerk to the Honorable Marvin N. Rimm, J.T.C. Shortly after, he became an Associate with a local firm and served as Assistant Solicitor for Egg Harbor Township before accepting an appointment as Assistant County Counsel for Atlantic County. Following his tenure as Assistant Atlantic County Counsel, he focused his career on Workers’ Compensation Law representing injured workers. In 2003, he co-founded DeNafo & Walcoff with his law partner, Brandon DeNafo and established their firm specializing in workers’ compensation.
Mr. Walcoff is admitted to practice in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, United States District Courts and the United States Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Early in his career, Mr. Walcoff was awarded the Benjamin Rimm Award as Outstanding Young Attorney and was named a member of the Top 40 under 40 by Atlantic City Weekly. He is a Trustee of the Atlantic County Bar Association and a Barrister of the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation American Inn of Court.
Perhaps the highest achievement or accolade a workers compensation attorney can accomplish is to become a Supreme Court Certified Workers Compensation Law Attorney. The New Jersey Supreme Court designated Mr. Walcoff as such in 2018, a recognition less than 1% of all attorneys ever achieve.
Mr. Walcoff is a proud and active member of our community. He is a founding member and current Executive Board member of the Dean Randazzo Cancer Foundation, a charitable organization which provides financial assistance to individuals battling cancer. He is a past President of the Northfield Board of Education. He currently serves on Linwood City Council.
