SAMANTHA FLORES

 

Attorney

Our clients drive me. There are so many victims of greed who have worked hard only to retire and get sick from their exposure to asbestos. Instead of enjoying their families in retirement, they suffer and often die because of this exposure and we fight for their rights.

Attorney Samantha Flores has worked on the Williams Hart asbestos team for the last 8 years, helping victims who have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, including mesothelioma, lung cancer and other related cancers. 

 “Our clients drive me. There are so many victims of greed who have worked hard only to retire and get sick from their exposure to asbestos.” Samantha adds, “Instead of enjoying their families in retirement, they suffer and often die because of this exposure and we fight for their rights.”

Samantha’s journey in the legal industry began when she graduated from the South Texas College of Law in 1998, after which she would become licensed in Texas and Oklahoma, acquire numerous professional affiliations and memberships, and receive recognition for her work including Texas Bar Foundation Fellow and Super Lawyers Rising Stars honors.

One case in particular stands out to Samantha, “Ed Seibold’s family was extremely satisfying. I only wish I could have met Mr. Seibold before he passed away. The character of each of his family members was a true reflection of a great man. He was loved not only by his 3 children, but by his wife’s 4 children. All 7 were raised together and all had to watch their father succumb to mesothelioma, a deadly form of lung cancer that is only contracted through asbestos exposure. Mr. Seibold was very involved in his church, spent many hours a week as a volunteer at a hospital, loved to travel with his beautiful bride, and spent as much time as possible with his kids and grandkids. His family misses him tremendously, and their stories helped tell the defendants in the case what a terrible tragedy his death had been. Because of the hard work we put into this case and the incredible courage of the Seibold family, we were able to make sure they were compensated for the loss of Mr. Seibold. Though it will not bring back their loved one, they can have solace in knowing that he did not pass away in vain.”

This sense of conviction is the same for all the attorneys of Williams Hart – they want to help those in need. “The attorneys and staff are a big happy family and we treat clients like they want to be treated in a time of need. They become a part of our extended family.”

And Samantha has a family of her own, enjoying spending time with her twin boy and girl. “They are my pride and joy,” Samantha enthusiastically says. “And I try to spend as much time as possible with them.”
