Stephanie "Cole" Adams

Stephanie Adams provides legal services to libraries, museums, and educators throughout NYS through the "Ask the Lawyer" Service. Her law office also handles employment, business, and construction law. A Central NY native (New Hartford High School, '91) and former page at the New Hartford Public Library, her law office is in Buffalo. She is looking forward to hearing your questions and discussing how the law can be an asset, not a burden, as educators adapt to the pressures of remote learning.
