Sam Salhab is dedicated to providing the finest and most competent legal representation to his clients. The way the criminal justice system is run today, those charged with crimes often feel like they have little influence or say in the outcome of their case. They feel like the lawyer that they have has done little or nothing to move their case forward, or that they are being forced into a “deal” or plea-bargain that is not in their best interests. Not surprisingly, many clients have not even seen their police reports or even received a copy of the complaint against them. Sam believes that every client deserves personalized attention when it comes to their legal matter, and this is why Sam’s services are so sought after. Here is a small biography describing Sam’s roots in the legal field and his approach to helping clients.
Sam developed time management skills, a strong work ethic, and an ability to effectively manage people and information as a law student at the Thomas Jefferson School Of Law in San Diego, California. Specifically, Sam served as Secretary of the on-campus chapter of the National Lawyer’s Guild, an organization devoted to making sure that human rights always trump corporate rights. Sam also served as President of the law school’s Entertainment Law Society. During Sam’s tenure at these organizations, he organized large on-campus symposiums and spent extensive time coordinating keynote speakers and raising funds. While in law school, Sam gained valuable skills in criminal defense at the San Diego County Office of the Public Defender. As a legal intern, his responsibilities included assisting with misdemeanor arraignments, counseling clients, providing legal research, and drafting memoranda on criminal procedure and evidentiary issues.
In fact, Sam’s advocacy of civil rights and liberties while in law school earned him the Charles T. Bumer Civil Libertarian award, which is conferred to individuals demonstrating a continued effort and dedication toward protecting and defending the civil liberties of the indigent. Finally, Sam passionately represented the indigent of Fresno County at the Law Offices of the Public Defender and as appointed conflict counsel. Sam’s responsibilities included felony and misdemeanor trials, pre-trial motions, investigations, preliminary hearings, and motions. Sam has conducted over twenty-five (25) jury trials, and managed a caseload including three “strikes” and other life top cases. Sam was also a lead attorney in Fresno County’s D.U.I. Court Pilot Program, which aimed to find sentencing alternatives for third time D.U.I offenders in order to avoid the mandatory 120-day minimum jail time where the third offense occurred within a 10-year period. While managing a heavy caseload, Sam have been able to provide high quality legal counsel to each one of his clients, which he takes great pride in.
Currently, Sam maintains law offices in Fresno, San Francisco, and Orange County, California. His excellent results and hard work ethic have gained him a national reputation amongst both lawyers and clients alike. Most notably, Sam was named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine three (3) years in a row, and a Legal Superstar by Newsweek Magazine. He was also name Top 40 Under 40 by the National Trial Lawyers Association.
