Our Team


Adrian E. Young, Esquire, is a member of the Lancaster, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and American Bar Associations. Adrian’s practice focuses on the creation of business and personal planning strategies designed to minimize tax exposure and maximize client wealth.

After graduating with honors from Dickinson College, Adrian went on to receive his Juris Doctor from the James E. Beasley School of Law at Temple University and his Master of Business Administration from the Fox School of Business and Management at Temple University. Adrian is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and New York.

Adrian enjoys eating, attempting to keep fit, and just about any kind of competition. Above all those, however, Adrian relishes spending time with his wife and three children (and, as hard as it is for those who know him to believe, these moments are often spent doing nothing “productive”). Practicing in a field that demands continual reading and education, Adrian looks forward to studying scripture and the work of James Montgomery Boice. Adrian is also a firm proponent of maximizing one’s impact in our communities, so he volunteers his time for numerous non-profit boards and committees.

Neil is also a member of the Lancaster, Berks and Pennsylvania Bar Associations.
