Attorney Profile

Joseph “Joey” Sampson enjoys helping businesses and individuals make tough decisions, resolve difficult problems, and succeed. He prioritizes building trust with others and relishes in the lawyer-counselor role, seeking to provide advice to his clients to achieve their goals, efficiently resolve issues, and avoid litigation. But sometimes litigation is necessary, and since joining McCathern in 2007 and later becoming a partner with the firm, Joey has garnered extensive experience and developed a successful practice litigating matters for plaintiffs and defendants. He handles cases in all areas of business and civil litigation, including insurance coverage issues, construction claims, D&O liability claims, E&O claims, contract disputes, labor and employment claims, and catastrophic personal injury and premise liability claims. Joey also consults companies regarding risk management and insurance, employment issues, and general business and contract matters. Texas Super Lawyers recognized Joey as a Rising Star in both 2017 and 2018.

A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Joey attended and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Georgia in 2001, where he earned his Bachelor of Business Administration degree, majoring in Risk Management and Insurance. Terry College’s risk management-insurance program at the University of Georgia has long been recognized by insurance professionals and U.S. News & World Report rankings as one of the top in the country. Joey’s strong risk management and insurance background allows him to bring a unique perspective to both consulting businesses and his litigation practice.

Joey earned his law degree from Baylor University School of Law in 2006. Baylor is consistently ranked as one of the top trial advocacy schools in the nation and has been referred to as the Marine Corps of law schools. While attending Baylor, Joey became a member of Baylor’s Order of Barristers, and he also completed an externship with the McLennan County District Attorney’s Office. Joey was licensed to practice in the State of Texas in November 2006. In addition to being licensed to practice in all Texas state courts, he is also licensed to practice in the United States District Courts for the Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western Districts.
