About Samantha

Learn Samantha’s areas of practice.

Samantha was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada where she developed a dedication to serving the local community at a very young age. Her sense of commitment was fostered in the local schools she attended. Samantha knew she wanted to be a lawyer since she began Speech and Debate in the ninth grade. Samantha graduated from Arbor View High School with an Advanced Honors Diploma.


Samantha attended the University of Nevada, Reno where she graduated Cum Laude in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice Pre-Law and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, with minors in Business Administration and Philosophy. While attending the University of Nevada, Reno she also served as President of the Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity during her senior year. Even before attending law school, she began volunteering with Kids’ Court School, a program offered by the William S. Boyd School of Law. This program introduced her to the sense of fulfillment brought about by advocating for families and children.


Starting in 2016, Samantha attended the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, earning her Juris Doctor in 2019. While a law student at Boyd, Samantha served as President of the Public Interest Law Association, Vice President of the Organization of Women Law Students, and was an active member of the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity. Samantha was also named a Public Interest Fellow for her dedication to the community. In addition to her duties as an officer and member of these prestigious law societies, Samantha also pursued an interest in legal writing. She worked as a Junior Staffer for the Nevada Law Journal before being promoted to Articles Editor in 2018, where she assisted in publishing Volume 19 of the Nevada Law Journal.


In her second year as a law student, Samantha completed an externship with the Honorable Frank P. Sullivan with the Eighth Judicial District Court, Family Division. She also worked with the Children’s Attorney’s Project at the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada where she helped to ensure that every child had an opportunity to have their voice heard in court. Samantha also completed legislative work during her internship with the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Nevada Chapter, where she assisted with the reorganization and drafting of Title 11 of the Nevada Revised Statues.


In addition to pursuing her interests in legal academia, Samantha has also continued to actively pursue her commitment to the Southern Nevada community. In February of 2018 she became a Board Member of the Nevada Children’s Commission. The commission’s main objective is to develop policies that strengthen the health, safety, and well-being of Nevada’s children and families. Throughout her time in law school, Samantha also volunteered as an educator for Kids’ Court School, helping to ease the worries of hundreds of children who were to testify in court. She also played a prominent role in launching the Juvenile Competency Remediation Program at the William S. Boyd School of Law, which assists in remediating juveniles deemed incompetent to stand trial, using a standardized, research-based curriculum. Her interests in the community extend to her involvement in the Education Advocacy Program led by the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada. Samantha continues to serve as a Volunteer Education Advocate for this program, representing the educational needs of children in foster care. Samantha has been recognized time and time again for her outstanding contribution to the community in public interest law. In 2018, she was named the Public Interest Law Student of Distinction by the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada.


Samantha also practiced as a student attorney, gaining invaluable legal experience and practice while still in school. As a student attorney, Samantha worked in the Clark County District Attorney’s office, as well as the Family Justice Clinic in the Thomas & Mack Legal Clinic. She remains fully committed to furthering the causes that promote justice for families and children in the Southern Nevadan community.


In 2019, Samantha obtained her Juris Doctor. Samantha joined the McFarling Law Group legal team after law school and brings her keen sense of professionalism and empathy to each and every case she collaborates on. In addition to being a licensed attorney in Nevada, Samantha is also a Certified Mediator and adds diplomacy to her legal expertise by seeking favorable resolutions for both parties.
In her spare time, Samantha enjoys spending time outdoors and taking trips to admire the natural beauty of the Southwest. She has a creative personality, finding joy in crafting and home improvement projects with her fiancé. When not working she enjoys spending time reading at home, while surrounded by her two cats and her desert tortoise.

Best lawyer
I hired Samantha to be my lawyer because I was filing divorced. She and her office help me along the way and made everything as straightforward as possible. I would recommend her for anyone going through a divorce or in need of legal help.

Took great care of us
I’m very happy with samanthas services overall. I was impressed by how fast she worked even through the corona virus pandemic. Courts were closed through the pandemic and I was still able to get custody within just a few months. Thank you Samantha and Christi. I highly recommend.

Amazing Lawyer. Highly recommended!!!
We have been using McFarling Law Group for quite sometime. Samantha is absolutely amazing! Lawyers like her are rare to find especially in Family Court. Samantha is very smart, knowledgeable, compassionate, persistent and responsive. She compiled years of documentation into evidence to support our case, resulting in being awarded PRIMARY CUSTODY of my 12 year old son. We are beyond grateful for Samantha and her ability to be an advocate for children in need. Thank you so much for all you do! We are beyond grateful for her and her ability to be an advocate for children. She represented us in our ongoing custody case battle with my diffex-wife of over 10 years. Thanks resulting in being awarded FULL CUSTODY of my 12 year old son.

Knowledgeable and Thorough
I reached out to Samantha for some family law related advice in regards to a friend's possible divorce as well as caring for my younger sister. Samantha was quick to return my message. She was very knowledgeable, thorough, and clear in her response. I was able to easily understand my options and what the process would look like moving further. I would definitely recommend her.
