Originally from northern Minnesota, Samantha attended law school in the Twin Cities and moved afterwards to Dallas, Texas where her career advocating for those injured by the negligence of others began. While in Texas Samantha gained valuable experience litigating hundreds of personal injury cases, resulting in millions of dollars in settlements for her clients. Samantha has tried more than thirty cases to a jury and is described by her peers as a strong advocate with a compassionate outlook. Before law school Samantha worked at a non-profit as an AmeriCorps member, which inspired her to become a lawyer so that she could have a greater impact in the lives of her clients. She is happy to be back in Minneapolis with her husband and two cats, Stella and Vera.
