Practice areas

I'm an Austin native, a veteran, and a third-generation lawyer. I tried over 15 jury trials in civil court while working as an attorney at the Texas Special Prosecution Unit – Civil Division. I also worked as a Legal Assistance Attorney for the Texas Military Department. After a short stint as a solo practitioner, my law partner, TL Fahring, and I formed “Denton & Fahring, PLLC” in February 2017. My current practice focuses on tax litigation and civil litigation.

Sam is fantastic. I have worked with him for my estate planning documents and contracts for my business. He was professional and nice while walking me through everything. I will come to him for all my future legal needs.

Professional and honest man, highly recommend!
I highly recommend Samuel, because he is not only professional, but also very ethical: he clearly showed me an alternative and cheaper path to reach my goals without using a lawyer. This clearly shows that Samuel deeply cares about his clients and first and foremost focuses on providing best solutions to clients! Rare find these days.

A great legal team
I was very happy with the service I got from TL & Sam. They helped write up my engagement letter and answered numerous other questions I had about growing my business. They are personable and very knowledgeable in start ups, tax litigation and more!

I have recently formed an LLC and had no idea where and how to start. Denton & Fahring, PLLC made it a very simple process. Their attention to detail and expertise has been instrumental in the formation of my legal entity. I would also like to mention that completing paperwork was a breeze - they provided me with a client portal and I was able to complete everything electronically. The entire process was fast, simple and clear. If you are in business and need legal advice, I highly recommend you give them a call! Israel Zuela – CEO Instapay Services, LLC.

My lawyers did a fantastic job representing me. I had a fence that was not properly installed and the company was demanding payment. Sam and TL did an amazing job of drafting up a contract to help get the fence fixed so I could pay the company. They were quick, efficient and thorough. All of my questions were answered and the matter was resolved in a timely fashion. Great job guys and thank you so much!
