Adam’s practice focuses on management-side labor and employment law. He counsels employers regarding employment agreements, handbooks and policies, employee discipline and terminations, as well as compliance with federal and state employment laws. Adam defends employers in federal and state courts against individual and collective actions under discrimination, retaliation, wage and hour, and leave laws.

Adam also provides counsel and representation to employers on traditional labor-management issues. He represents employers in National Labor Relations Act proceedings, including representation matters, unfair labor practice charges, grievances and arbitrations, and collective bargaining negotiations.

While earning his law degree from University of Baltimore, Adam was symposium editor for the University of Baltimore Law Review, and on the Robert F. Wagner Labor Law Competition moot court team. He was inducted into the Heuisler Honor Society and, following law school, clerked for the Honorable Arrie W. Davis of the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland.

In 2013, Adam was appointed by Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to serve as one of three Commissioners on the Baltimore City Civil Service Commission, which creates the rules and procedures for the City’s classified service, and serves as an appeal board for employee grievances.
