Samantha is the founding attorney of DuMond Law Firm. Her passion for the legal field started at an early age and has grown stronger over past decades. “I believe in serving the under served and giving a voice to those who are not being heard. Every one should be able to afford the legal representation of their choosing and have the best possible legal defense regardless of their past or current situations.”
Samantha’s education began in upstate New York where she was born and raised in a small town called Amsterdam. Amsterdam was not known for high graduation rate. However, she beat the odds when she graduated from high school with honors at the age of 16. She continued on to major in Business Management at the University of Phoenix earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management while also earning an Associate’s Degree from Schenectady County Community College in Aviation Science. A few years younger than most of her peers, Samantha began law school in the Fall of 2010. She participated in an accelerated program and graduated cum laude from Phoenix School of Law (now called Arizona Summit School of Law) in downtown Phoenix, Arizona in the Fall of 2012.
During law school, Samantha was a Managing Editor of Law Review, participated in a Summer Abroad program studying International Criminal Law with Creighton University School of Law, and volunteered with the Arizona Justice Project at Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. Samantha received various CALI awards for excellence in Evidence and Civil Procedure. Aside from her rigorous course schedule and studies, Samantha also worked full time as a Contracted Law Clerk for a Trust & Estates Firm, a Criminal Defense Firm, and a Civil Litigation Firm. She also worked part time as a Bail Bond Agent on the weekends.
After graduating from law school and passing the Bar in February of 2013, Samantha’s husband was activated as part of the Army Reserves. Samantha continued to work as a contracted Law Clerk with firms in the Valley while she stayed home to be with her newborn son. When her husband returned, Samantha finished her license application and started DuMond Law, PLLC in April of 2014.
During her time as a practicing attorney, Samantha has been a fighter in the court room and an advocate for her clients. Nothing holds her back from being in the courtroom and being available to her clients. She has since had two more children and was still practicing and managing DuMond Law throughout both pregnancies. Her office is filled with pictures of her adorable family and the walls are adorned with certificates of her accomplishments.
She is a firm believer that with enough support and guidance, anyone can achieve their goals if they set their mind to believe in themselves. As a lawyer, Samantha is there to provide the support and guidance through any legal battle to help her clients reach their goals for their future. She believes that the struggles her clients are in today is developing the strength they need for tomorrow.

I have never needed a lawyer, however Samantha made the process very comfortable. She immediately established a level of trust, I had not anticipated. She expertly handled my case in a successful fashion, keeping me updated regarding every detail along the way. She was very responsive, to any question I had, responding in an expedient fashion. The cost of the entire process was far less expensive then I could have imagined.
I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you so much! I don’t think I’ve ever told you how much I appreciate all that your law firm has done for my family and I. Ever since day one you’ve been there for us. Thank you so so much! My family and I are completely satisfied with everything you’ve done for us! And especially my daughter! What you did for her was the icing on the cake. Her being able to stay at home with my wife and my son make every day tolerable for me. You’re awesome Sam! Thanks again!
Highly Recommend DuMond Law!
Samantha is a great attorney. She got my charge completely dismissed with only community service. She kept me informed better than lawyers I have experienced in the past. She is professional and skilled at what she does. Her law clerk, Chris, is exceptional as well. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and very thorough. Together they make a great team and really fight for their clients. I have recommended DuMond Law to acquaintances and they have given me nothing but positive feedback as well. I would highly recommend DuMond Law to anyone for criminal defense work.
