Education and Experience
Samantha attained her Juris Doctorate in 1999 from Michigan State University, thereafter, passing the Illinois Bar in 2000. Being a native of the GTA, Samantha returned to Ontario to complete her equivalency and bar exams. While completing her equivalencies, Samantha was employed with a Toronto firm, and was introduced to both family law and civil litigation. These have been the respective areas of practice for Samantha since her call to the Ontario Bar in 2002.
In 2018, Samantha briefly stepped out of private practice to take on a contractual position at Legal Aid Ontario, as the Southwest Manager for the Legal Services and Payments Division, bringing her years of frontline experience in complex family law matters to the department.
Samantha is now proudly a member of the Galbraith Family Law team as of January 2020 and looks forward to contributing her years of knowledge from both the private and public practice.
