Neil joined Abrams & Associates, LLC, in July of 2016 and immediately proved to be a valuable asset and relentless litigator. Neil grew into a formidable litigator and courtroom opponent with natural skills as a litigator.  He quickly gained substantial experience litigating in the firm's construction, business, family and real estate practice areas. Due to his substantial legal talents, personable approach to client representation, and incredible work ethic, Robert Abrams and Nathan Silver offered Neil a partnership opportunity, forming Abrams | Sullenberger | Silver, LLC. Neil made partner in less than three years, an unheard of feat in this field.

Neil is originally from the "City of Champions" - Pittsburgh, PA. While no city can compare to his hometown for sports, he moved to Denver for the mountains and all of their associated activities.  In his free time, he enjoys skiing, hunting, fishing, camping and playing sports in a few of Denver's intramural leagues.

He received his Juris Doctor with two academic emphases in corporate and commercial law from Michigan State University College of Law in East Lansing, MI. He was also a member of the Michigan State Law Review, where he honed his legal research and writing skills. Neil also spent a full year as a clinician with the Alvin L. Storrs Tax Clinic, negotiating with and frequently winning his positions against the IRS and state-level tax agencies. His undergraduate degree is from Washington & Jefferson College, a small school just south of Pittsburgh. At W&J, he earned a B.A. in Economics, with an emphasis in Financial Economics and a minor in Mathematics.

Neil utilizes his tailored training in corporate law, commercial law, and finance to competently advise the firm's clients in various types of business disputes. His background affords him a unique ability to advise clients about often unforeseen consequences of their decisions from both a legal and business standpoint.  As a pragmatist, he seeks to avoid expanding litigation unnecessarily, streamlines all of his cases, and tries only the operative claims to avoid additional expenses to the client. Neil is Robert Abrams' right hand man at trial, and the two enjoy continued success trying cases together.
