“Always feel free to call. All you have to do is let me know what the problem is and I’ll do whatever I can to fix it. Whether its good news or bad news, I’ll be here to help.”

Adam J. Davey, an associate at SBW Law, handles cases involving primarily law enforcement officers, the Law Enforcement Officers’ Bill of Rights, and police discipline. Adam also practices in the areas of criminal defense, collective bargaining, labor law, and civil litigation. Adam has represented hundreds of law enforcement officers in administrative matters throughout the State of Maryland, and has assisted in drafting appeals that have reached Maryland’s highest court, the Court of Appeals.

Prior to practicing law, Adam received his undergraduate degree from then Lynchburg College, now the University of Lynchburg, in central Virginia. As an undergraduate, Adam was a member of the Westover Honors Program, the Student Athletic Advisory Committee, and the Men’s Varsity Lacrosse Team, where he learned important time management, team, and organizational skills that continue to assist him in his practice today. He also received multiple awards for his academic and athletic performance, including the Student Athlete Leadership Award, as well as the Joseph F. Freeman Political Science Award.

Following his college education, Adam attended the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, where he was a member of the Journal of Healthcare Law and Policy. Adam also participated in the Mediation Clinic becoming a certified mediator. While attending school, Adam also served as a Law Clerk at SBW Law for over two years, splitting time between administrative and criminal defense work, as well as civil litigation. He also worked as an intern for the Honorable Judge Daniel Friedman on Maryland’s Court of Special Appeals, assisting in drafting judicial opinions. Following law school, Adam came straight to work at SBW Law, receiving the position of associate attorney after passing the bar exam in December of 2018. The time that Adam spent honing his skills outside of the classroom, and the activities that he participated in while studying for his law degree, serve as a strong foundation for his diverse practice.

In addition to his law practice, Adam has stayed involved in the lacrosse community, coaching for various teams and working individually with youth players in Baltimore to hone their skills. In his free time, he is an avid Baltimore Sports fan and enjoys going to Ravens games on Sundays and spending time in the city, where he has lived the past three years.
