Adamo Lanza’s career as an attorney has been devoted almost exclusively to criminal defense. His association with Brad Bailey’s criminal law practice began nearly nine years ago as a second-year law student; he is now a Senior Associate with the Firm.
During that time, he has represented individuals in both federal and state courts throughout MA at every stage of proceeding, from pre-charge investigations and Clerk-Magistrate hearings, pre-trial motions practice, and jury trials, to all forms of post-conviction litigation, including sentencings, motions for new trial pursuant to Mass. R. Crim P. 30(b), and federal habeas corpus petitions under 18 USC §§ 2254 & 2255. He has also second-chaired Mr. Bailey during jury trials on allegations of serious crime, such as murder, rape, and federal drug distribution. His appellate experience includes petitions for interlocutory relief under G.L. c. 211 § 3 as well as direct appeals.
In view of the pride, emphasis, and attention Brad Bailey Law places on its motions practice at all stages of its litigation practice, Adamo is now focusing his talents and time on the Firm’s pre-trial and post-conviction motions, as well as on appellate work in all courts in all venues. Because of his depth of experience on the federal side during which he developed an intimate familiarity with the nuances of the federal rules of evidence and procedure as well as the complexities of the federal Sentencing Guidelines, Adamo will continue to also work with Mr. Bailey on all of the Firm’s federal criminal cases and matters. Adamo has also demonstrated a unique ability to analyze discovery and therefore is often involved in the development of case defense strategies.
Adamo studied Philosophy and Legal Studies as an undergraduate at UMass Amherst. He graduated magna cum laude from Suffolk University Law School in 2013.
