Sam Adams' practice is focused on litigation for business, government and non-profit organizations.  As a trial lawyer, her experience spans the insurance, employment, education, health care and among others, trucking industry.  But, also as a trial lawyer, Sam understands the value of good legal advice in advance of a trip to the courtroom. She regularly advises members of management and boards of directors on issues related to insurance coverage, employer/employee disputes, contract relations and negotiations, covenants not to compete, trade practices and, among other things, how to avoid litigation.

Sam has advised clients including Turner Enterprises Inc., Mountain States Insurance Group, the Board of Education of Albuquerque Public Schools, New Mexico Cancer Center, San Juan Coal Company, Resources, Inc., New Mexico Community Capital, WESST Development, Century Administration, Remax Classic Realty and EMCORE Corporation.  In addition, she has been an instructor for numerous educational services, providing core legal education and updates in the areas of human resources/employment and education.

Prior to attending law school, Sam was a senior claims representative for Farmers Insurance Company of Arizona, where she was responsible for litigated files and for arbitration of insurance disputes.  Today, in addition to her law practice, she intermittently serves as an adjunct faculty member with the University of New Mexico School of Law.
