After graduating magna cum laude from the University of Alabama, Sam wasn't set on attending law school. But after working for the only lobbying organization in Florida tasked specifically with protecting the rights of Florida injury victims, he knew a career as an attorney was the best way to help people injured through no fault of their own or accused of crimes.
Sam began his legal career at one of the largest law firms in Florida, working directly for national insurance companies and health care conglomerates. This valuable experience gives him a definitive edge in knowing how insurers will fight against compensating you for your claim. He then moved to one of the top statewide plaintiff's firms, gaining insight into insurance coverage and insurance bad faith matters. He joined with Brett Metcalf to begin Metcalf Harden in 2014.
Sam is a member of the Florida Justice Association, the American Association for Justice, the Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association, and the Hillsborough County Bar Association. He is licensed to practice in all Florida state courts, as well as the federal Middle District of Florida. Sam lives in Lutz with his wife Kristin, a Tampa native, and son Robbie.
