  • Jennifer Diane Gilbert

    Sam was my supervising attorney and mentor all throughout law school. I’ve seen him captivate juries, and persuade judges to rule in his favor where most courts are divided. He cuts to the core and quickly learns who his clients are so he can understand their struggles and tell their stories the way they should be told. Sam is a master of trials and appeals, and I’m glad I get to learn from him.
