Samantha is a leading advisor to companies and high-wealth individuals both inside and outside the courthouse. Being comfortable in a conference room, board room and court room sets Samantha apart from others.

She counsels clients on preventative strategies for financial decisions and corporate governance to best position clients. But when situations get heated and the stakes are high, Samantha and her team are ready to represent clients in complex commercial litigation, including securities and insurance controversies; white collar investigations; and fiduciary litigation. 

Samantha’s wealth of experience and significant legal knowledge allow her to support companies big and small with solutions tailored specifically for clients. One key to success for Samantha is her ability to shift her focus from one thing to the next with remarkable speed. This ability to pivot between tasks means she’s efficient and proactive, navigating the big picture and resolving the issues.
