Sam is a commercial litigator with experience in state and federal courts. His passion for strategising persuasive legal and factual arguments have led to many favourable rulings on complex and novel issues across different subject matters.
Sam graduated from Monash University with a degree in science, majoring in mathematics. The following year, Sam graduated from Melbourne University after completing his law degree, with a Supreme Court prize in Insurance Law for achieving top of the class results.
Sam was admitted to practice in 1984. Over the years, he has helped clients from all walks of life with various problems. Cases have included bushfire claims, to David and Goliath battles with shopping centres, Melbourne Airport Authority and large law firms; all successfully fought.
More recently, in an effort at continual self-improvement, Sam has undertaken and completed a Masters in Applied Law majoring in Commercial Litigation.
Sam’s motto is best summarised in a quote from Abraham Lincoln -
“As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.”
