Bleakley Bavol Denman & Grace is pleased to announce that Samantha L. Dammer has joined the firm as a partner. Ms. Dammer has over 22 years of experience providing litigation and transactional representation to clients in the areas of bankruptcy, foreclosure defense, and commercial litigation. Ms. Dammer has concentrated her practice in guiding high-profile individuals and business owners through their individual debt situations. She takes pride in using a unique blend of legal skill, experience, creativity, and problem-solving aptitude.
Robert Bleakley, the firm’s Managing Partner, said, “Adding Samantha Dammer as a partner is a huge blessing to our firm. For many years we have dreamed of being able to offer bankruptcy representation to our clients but never found the right fit. By chance we happened to meet up with Samantha and located an experienced bankruptcy professional that shares our values and embraces our mission and vision.”
As Ms. Dammer integrates into the firm, she has stated, “To say I’m excited about the opportunity is too thin. Of course, I am still representing businesses and their principals with debt restructuring and legal issues…but now I can do it better. Plus, this move gives my clients access to enhanced resources, including a powerful cadre of seasoned attorneys from various practice areas. What a solid, strategic win-win for my clients!”
Ms. Dammer received her J.D., with honors, from the 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 by legal scholars as well as by the United States Supreme Court when the high court made its decision on that issue in 2003.
Since Ms. Dammer’s move to Tampa in 2005, she has remained committed to the Tampa Bay community. She was the Chairman of the South Tampa Chamber of Commerce for the 2016-2017 term, and active in the organization since 2007. She volunteers her time through various organizations such as the SBDC’s Small Business Resource Network, Hands of Hope, and the Post 9/11 Veteran’s advisory board. Ms. Dammer has served on several Tampa charity boards, and she is also an active member of Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association and the Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club.
