Samuel B. Sheffer


Dallas, Texas
Phone number
A third-generation trial lawyer, Sam is originally from Louisville, Kentucky. Sam has been active in the law since childhood, beginning his legal career as a ten-year-old shredding paper in his father and grandfather’s firm. A formative summer serving as a Deputy Clerk for the Jefferson County Circuit Court Clerk shaped his path towards earning his law license, giving him an appreciation for those whose hard work allows our legal system to function. Sam also brings a varied work experience outside the law, having done everything from waiting tables to put himself through school to interning for an NFL franchise.
Sam majored in finance at Miami University where he graduated a semester early. After earning his MBA at the University of Louisville, he moved across the country to Texas to pursue his dream of becoming an attorney. While at the Texas A&M University School of Law, Sam was extensively involved with the Business Law Society, spending two years on its board of executives. Sam’s time volunteering with the Community Development & Entrepreneurship Law Clinic also gave him ample experience in simple and complex business formation and organization.
Sam’s education and work experience belie his age. Sam is well-educated, well-rounded, and especially motivated to help you achieve your goals. Outside of the office, Sam is an avid concertgoer and sports enthusiast.
