Adam Carroll, Attorney at Law

Adam M. Carroll concentrates his litigation practice by handling both jury and non-jury cases in state and federal courts.  Drawing on experience gained in the public sector as a prosecutor, he predominantly handles complex commercial matters, collateral recovery, and business disputes.  Adam is an accomplished trial lawyer and routinely serves as local counsel due to his ability to navigate the complex and nuanced “rocket docket” of the Eastern District of Virginia.  As an experienced criminal trial attorney, Mr. Carroll also represents individuals and business in conflict with federal and state officials in disputes over regulatory matters, tax defalcations, and traditional white-collar offenses. 

Additionally, Adam serves as counsel to the School Board for the City of Portsmouth.  In that role, he advises the School Board in complex matters involving School regulations, labor and employment matters, government contracts and public procurement.  Paired with his trial background, Mr. Carroll represents the Schools in disputes before the Federal and State courts.   

Mr. Carroll was admitted to practice in Virginia in 2004 and, after leaving public service, he worked through the real estate boom in the mid-2000s at a high-volume real estate firm.  There he gained substantial experience in residential and commercial real estate transactions, land use and zoning matters, and currently advises individuals, agents and brokers as they navigate the contract and closing phases of their transactions.
