Adam D. Greivell, Esq.


Adam Greivell was born and raised in Hagerstown, Maryland. He graduated from St. Maria Goretti High School in 1997, and from the Hagerstown Community College in 2000. He earned a full scholarship to complete his Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Baltimore, which he did, magna cum laude, in 2002. Adam’s undergraduate performance earned him a spot (and a small scholarship) at the Indiana University School of Law at Bloomington – consistently ranked in the top 20% of the country’s law schools.

During law school, Adam clerked for Judge James A. Kenney, III, on the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, and worked with serious criminal defense attorney, Joe Murtha and serious tort attorney, Jay Miller (both SuperLawyers) of Miller, Murtha & Psoras, LLC.

Immediately after law school, he worked as a contract attorney providing litigation support services for a number of small law firms and larger organizations, including the Office of the Vice President and General Counsel at Johns Hopkins University and the City Solicitor’s Office for the Mayor of Baltimore City. During this period, Adam gained significant civil litigation and trial court experience.

From 2006 through 2009, Adam worked as an associate for Leo P. Hylan, P.A., a general civil and criminal litigation firm in Anne Arundel County. During Adam’s time at Leo P. Hylan, P.A., Adam litigated many dozens of civil and criminal matters from start to finish. Adam litigated a 19 day civil trial, successfully defending his business client against a seven figure claim for stock in its company.  Adam gained admission to the United States District Court of Maryland in 2009 and has litigated complex civil cases in Federal Court.

Adam returned Hagerstown, Maryland with his wife and son in late 2008. After a year of commuting to Anne Arundel County, and upon learning of the appointment of G. Clair Baker as Domestic Relations Master and Dana Moylan-Wright as District Court Judge in Washington County, Adam contacted their former firm of Miller, Oliver, Baker, Moylan & Stone, and accepted a position, and joined as a partner in the firm shortly thereafter.  During his time at Miller, Oliver, Adam continued his litigation practice and gained experience in litigating numerous real property disputes, including rights of way, easements, restrictive covenants, adverse possession, lease options and defective titles.

In April, 2010, Adam decided to open up his own law firm in downtown Hagerstown. In his practice, Adam strives to serve his clients with a high degree of care, service and efficiency. 

Adam has a firm grasp on technology and technological issues as they play out in the civil and criminal litigation context. Adam has defended clients accused of click-fraud, identity theft, illegally downloading copyrighted music, and  fraudulently altering a computer file’s meta-data. Adam has also represented victims of internet defamation and copyright and trademark infringement. Adam gleefully seizes upon these issues as they arise for his clients, and is not afraid to learn the things many lawyers find out of reach. 

Adam is also an Apple enthusiast. Adam believes computers are supposed to make life easier, not harder, and he therefore leverages the firm's Mac and iPhone based office to provide excellent and efficient service to his clients.
