To introduce our readers with the dozens of individuals who come together to make our clients and our firm successful, we periodically present one of our exceptional team members. This entry in our continuing series, Meet the Murthy Law Firm, shines the spotlight on firm Member and Assistant Managing Attorney Adam Rosen.
Adam felt drawn to the legal world from an early age, and by the time he was in high school, he knew that he wanted to become an attorney. He recalls feeling pulled to a career in law because “I thought it would give me better tools for changing the world, tools I wouldn’t have had if I didn’t become a lawyer.” After earning his undergraduate degree in political science and history, Adam entered law school, where he discovered that he had a passion for health policy. In fact, his first foray into immigration law came about because he was trying to make more room in his schedule for health policy work. “I signed up (for the class) because the timing was good. I had been working as a research assistant for a professor, and was busy with the Health Law Journal, so I tried to arrange my schedule with certain days free.”
Adam was so intrigued by the class that he soon shifted his priorities to gaining more experience in immigration law. By his second year in law school, he was clerking at an immigration firm in New York, and ended up working there for three years after graduation. In 2004, he moved to Maryland and began working for the Green Card Department at the Murthy Law Firm, which was then known as the Law Office of Sheela Murthy. Adam quickly encountered new challenges, and notes that “I had done a lot of business immigration work, but at my old job, the cases were more straightforward. Here, questions and issues came up that I hadn’t seen before. I learned that I had a lot to learn.”
In 2009, Adam moved to the Special Projects Department, where he has continued to help resolve some of the firm’s most complex and unusual cases. While Adam enjoys the challenging casework, his favorite thing about working at the Murthy Law Firm is the supportive environment that firm founder and president Sheela Murthy has created. “I’ve been here over twelve years, and it’s a very nice place to work. People are happy to be here, and that comes across in the way they treat our clients.”
