Sam Simmons

 

Growing up in the small town of Smithfield, Virginia taught me a lot, but there is one thing that I will always carry with me; the best feeling in life comes from helping others. I wanted to become an attorney so that I could provide a service to people in need. The practice of law revolves around real people who need individualized solutions.

I strive to make each client comfortable with putting their trust and confidence in my ability to help them. My goal is for each client to know that I care about their problems and will work to find the best solution. Through compassion, skill, and understanding, I am confident that each client can rest assured that their goals will be reached.

While there are similarities in the methods that are used to achieve each goal, there are no identical situations. Being able to connect with clients to truly understand their needs and the reasons behind them allows me to craft the right solution. A critical part of being an attorney is earning each client’s trust. To do so, I work with a purpose to solve each problem in the most effective manner.

I am happily married and have two rescue dogs, Coach and Ralphie. My wife is my best friend and number one supporter. She never fails to encourage me to be the best that I can be each and every day. When not at work, we love to explore Charlotte with our dogs, vigorously support our Gamecocks, and spend time with family and friends.
