"They are blazing a new path and doing things differently than the generations before them. We at The Daily Record applaud their creativity, energy and forward thinking."

Adam also advises schools on the design and implementation of policies and procedures regarding student and employee relations, and system-wide policy issues including the use of online instructional tools and cloud computing.

Successfully represented a small locally owned and operated business against a national private-sector union before the National Labor Relations Board.
Successfully represented several public school systems before Federal and State Courts and administrative agencies through both written submissions to the Court/Agency and during trials and hearings.

Successfully represented a major public school system through a Department of Education Office of Civil Rights Investigation.
Drafted various policies and procedures currently in use in several public school systems throughout the State.
Adam obtained his Juris Doctorate from the University of Baltimore School of Law, magna cum laude, in 2013. Prior to that he received his Bachelor of Arts, from Franklin & Marshall College. In addition to practicing law, he is an Adjunct Professor at McDaniel College where he teaches Education Law.
He also has found time to be active in the community. He was a 2014 Business Volunteers Maryland GIVE class member where he worked closely with the 29th Street Community Center in Charles Village to help them achieve crucial fundraising goals and complete much needed site renovations. Adam continues to serve in an advisory capacity for the GIVE Program. For the last several years, he has served as an instructor at the Baltimore County Bar Association's Civics and Law Academy and is currently the Vice-Chair of the Law Day Committee. He also serves as an assistant lacrosse coach with the Pikesville Recreation Council for the Midget Boys program.
