Adam represents injured workers in Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability/SSI claims. Recently, Adam authored the legal brief used to score a major victory for injured workers, successfully persuading the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court that a section of the Workers’ Compensation Act – used to limit workers’ benefits – was unconstitutional.
He received his B.A. from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania in 2009, where he majored in Political Science. While at Dickinson College, Adam studied at the London School of Economics. Before going to law school, Adam spent two years in Washington, D.C. where he worked for two separate members of the House of Representatives. Adam then went on to receive his law degree from the Duquesne University School of Law in 2014. During his time at Duquesne Law School, Adam studied the Chinese legal system in Beijing, China.
