Samantha is the founding attorney of DuMond Law, PLLC. Her passion for the legal field started at an early age and has grown stronger over past decades. “I believe in serving the under served and giving a voice to those who are not being heard. Every one should be able to afford the legal representation of their choosing and have the best possible legal defense regardless of their past or current situations.”
Samantha’s education began in upstate New York where she was born and raised the small town of Amsterdam. Amsterdam was not known for having a high graduation rate. However, she beat the odds when she graduated from high school with honors at the age of 16. She continued on to major in Business Management at the University of Phoenix earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management while also earning an Associate’s Degree from Schenectady County Community College in Aviation Science. A few years younger than most of her peers, Samantha began law school in the Fall of 2010. She participated in an accelerated program and graduated cum laude from Phoenix School of Law (now called Arizona Summit School of Law) in downtown Phoenix, Arizona in the Fall of 2012. Smantha was later recruited to come back to the school as an Adjunct Law Professor.
During law school, Samantha was a Managing Editor of Law Review, participated in a Summer Abroad program studying International Criminal Law with Creighton University School of Law, and volunteered with the Arizona Justice Project at Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. Samantha received various CALI awards for excellence in Evidence and Civil Procedure. Aside from her rigorous course schedule and studies, Samantha also worked full time as a contracted Law Clerk for a Trust & Estates Firm, a Criminal Defense Firm, and a Civil Litigation Firm. She also worked part time as a Bail Bond Agent on the weekends.
After graduating from law school and passing the Bar in February of 2013, Samantha’s husband was activated as part of the Army Reserves. Samantha continued to work as a contracted Law Clerk with firms in the Valley while she stayed home to be with her newborn son. When her husband returned, Samantha finished her license application and started DuMond Law, PLLC in April of 2014.
During her time as a practicing attorney, Samantha has been a fighter in the court room and an advocate for her clients. Nothing holds her back from being in the courtroom and being available to her clients. She has since had three more children and was still practicing and managing DuMond Law throughout the pregnancies. Her office is filled with pictures of her adorable family and the walls are adorned with certificates of her accomplishments.
Samantha was also an Adjunct Law Professor at Arizona Summit Law School from 2016 to 2018 teaching Post Conviction Relief and running the Post Conviction Relief Clinic and the Veteran's Legal Clinic where she was able to teach third year law students how to assist Clients with their legal needs.
She is a firm believer that with enough support and guidance, anyone can achieve their goals if they set their mind to believe in themselves. As a lawyer, Samantha is there to provide the support and guidance through any legal battle to help her clients reach their goals for their future. She believes that the struggles her clients are in today is developing the strength they need for tomorrow.
When Samantha is not practicing law, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, camping, swimming, and browsing Pinterest for new recipes to cook.
