Samantha Dammer

I am an attorney licensed in Florida (2007) and Illinois (1998) with experience in civil litigation, currently concentrating my practice in bankruptcy law, real estate litigation, foreclosure solutions, family law, as well as comprehensive asset protection and debt restructuring. My firm provides a holistic approach to clients who are seeking relief from real estate related financial distress, foreclosure or pre-foreclosure issues.

We focus efforts in helping high-end clients avoid bankruptcy and financial disaster through examing their full individual situation. A short term solution is only a start; we complete the picture by providing a long-term plan for the future. Many of my clients are real estate and mortgage company professionals and other business leaders who find themselves suddenly facing foreclosure and financial ruin for the first time in their lives. For the last few years, I have concentrated my practice in guiding high-profile individuals and business owners through tough times, using a unique blend of legal skill, experience, creativity, and problem-solving aptitude.

Specialties: formation of strategic alliances, business development, team building and mentoring, contract negotiations, leadership based management, hands-on production, strong legal and analytical skills, tactical planning, budgeting, recruiting, hiring, training.
