Samuel joined our team in 2021 after working at a plaintiff-side litigation firm. Perhaps the easiest way to describe Samuel is to start with this question: “do you remember when people were better?” There was a time when people cared—they cared about dressing well, speaking properly, doing right because it is right, and taking seriously their duty to family and community. Today’s world forgot not only those values but even the value of values.
A seeming anachronism based on his age, Samuel reflects this more principled time. He does good because it is good. This translates into exactly the type of lawyer and professional we want at Biller & Kimble. As a lawyer, Samuel is meticulous, conscientious, and appropriately aggressive. As a man, he is trustworthy, caring, and dependable. We are proud to have him as part of our team, and his clients are proud to have him as their attorney.
From Samuel: “I do what I do because I believe court is one of the few places where a regular fellow can sometimes win against the most powerful. I believe this means something, especially in a world where it continually gets harder for the regular guy to make it. Above all, the thing which drives me is the thought of knowing that I was of use to others. If all of what I have done was for myself, it would not be worthwhile.”
We asked Samuel who he admires, and he said Hilaire Belloc:
“I admire most Belloc’s disdain for pretention and love for the simple and pure. His writings express praise for the simple folk of the countryside, good hearty food, and a simple yet unshakable faith of a medieval yeoman. He believed that regular people should not be reliant on big business or government largess, and that society should be ordered in a way that regular people are free and able to provide for themselves. Like Belloc, I believe regular people are far wiser than given credit and would create a much better place to live in than any of their ‘betters.’”
In his personal life, Samuel enjoys cooking, brewing beer, shooting pool, hiking, and collecting and restoring antique phonographic orchestral jazz records from the pre-WWII era. Samuel’s Catholic faith guides his life. Samuel has a degree in Cinema Studies and enjoys ragtime music late 19th and early 21st century.
