Samantha Dammer is an attorney licensed in Florida and Illinois, concentrating her practice in bankruptcy law, real estate litigation, foreclosure solutions, family law, as well as comprehensive asset protection and debt restructuring. A tenacious, compassionate and experienced attorney in Tampa Bay, Ms. Dammer provides a holistic approach to clients who are seeking relief from real estate related financial distress, foreclosure or pre-foreclosure issues.

Ms. Dammer graduated first in her class from St. Xavier University in Chicago with a degree in English Literature in 1995. Thereafter, she attended law school at Valparaiso University School of Law, where she was the Executive Symposium Editor for the law review, and authored a published note which proposed a constitutional regulation of computer-generated child pornography. Her note has been cited several times by legal scholars as well as by the United States Supreme Court when the high court made its decision on that issue in 2003. Ms. Dammer graduated from Valpo Law School Magna Cum Laude in 1998.

Immediately after graduation from law school, Samantha Dammer started her own general practice law firm in Orland Park, an upper middle class suburb of Chicago. Within the first year, Ms. Dammer's law firm, The Law Offices of Samantha L. Friel & Associates, P.C. became a leader in providing legal services in the south Chicagoland suburbs for high-end divorce and custody clients. Ms. Dammer earned the trust of thousands of clients, who appreciated her sincerity, frank approach to the case, and aggressive, zealous representation. Ms. Dammer strategically planned and executed a tactical market emergence process which resulted in immediate name recognition within three years after the firm's inception.

Throughout her career in Chicago, Samantha Dammer has always been recognized for her commitment to leadership roles in the community. Examples of her past community involvement include:

St. Xavier University, Board of Directors, Alumni Association (1998-2001, 2003-2005), Professional Conduct Committee, Illinois State Bar Association, 2001-2005, Secretary, 2004-2005, Board Commissioner, Orland Park Civic Center Authority, 2003-2005, Secretary, South Suburban Bar Association, 2003-2004, Board Member, 2000-2004.

In 2005, Ms. Dammer moved her family to Tampa, Florida. In 2007, after sitting for the Florida Bar in the midst of a nationwide economic crisis, Ms. Dammer focused her efforts in helping high-end clients avoid bankruptcy and financial disaster through taking a holistic approach to their individual situation. Many of Ms. Dammer's 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, Ms. Dammer has concentrated her 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.

Ms. Dammer remains committed to the Tampa Bay community and has served on the Board of Directors of Wheels of Success, a not-for-profit organization devoted to providing vehicles for working families. She is also an active member of Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association, as well as the Centre Club and the South Tampa Chamber of Commerce.

Ms. Dammer resides in Tampa Palms with her two lovely children, Annabelle Lee and Alexandra Rain. Her personal interests include gardening, cooking, travel and reading pretty much everything.
