Sam Saks has extensive experience in all phases of litigation, including discovery, motion practice, trial, mediation, and appeal. In addition to his legal practice, Sam serves as a pro tem judge in Maricopa County Superior Court, conducting numerous settlement conferences in civil cases. He is one of the youngest members of the State Bar Board of Governors and has served in leading roles on the Mentorship, Technology, and Rules committees. He is also the founder of Legal Aid of Arizona, providing free legal referrals to the community.

In personal injury and tort cases, Sam has obtained millions of dollars for clients involved in truck accidents, car accidents, animal attacks, and commercial torts.  He has handled a wide range of cases involving serious injury and wrongful death. Sam is also known for his ability to solve complex insurance disputes, including bad faith delays and denials of coverage. Sam has also successfully negotiated down millions of dollars in liens and medical bills for his clients to ensure that they receive the maximum value for their claims.

Sam’s commercial litigation includes representing small- to medium-sized businesses navigating complex litigation over partnership, breach of contract, and commercial transactions.

Sam has been in law practice for more than 15 years. Before founding Guidant Law, Sam worked as a senior law clerk for Chief Judge Sheldon Weisberg at the Arizona Court of Appeals. There, he researched and drafted opinions and memorandum decisions on a wide variety of civil issues.

Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

There have been several cases where I've managed to obtain insurance coverage even when there were very strong legal and factual arguments against it. As an attorney, helping an injured client through a difficult and stressful claims process not only maximize their recovery, but actually make a recovery possible is very rewarding.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

I am a strong believer in picking an attorney that will be upfront and honest with you from the start. Insurance claims can be very difficult and stressful. Many settlements involve medical liens and bills that must be accounted for. The insurance companies and companies defending the claim have far more resources (I know I've defended claims too).
