    Sam Lockhart is a brilliant trial attorney. I brought him in to first chair an eight week jury trial on a multi-million dollar breach of contract/business torts case. He got up to speed quickly, and ultimately obtained a verdict in my clients' favor. I cannot possibly recommend him more highly.
