Samantha E. Smyth

When working with medical professionals, Samantha understands the stress that comes with defending a malpractice action. “A malpractice action against a medical professional impacts not only their current practice, but is also emotionally draining.” She is dedicated to ensuring that she understands the complexities of each case through constant communication with her clients. “To ensure that clients receive the best results, I’m dedicated to learning all of the facts so that I can build a successful defense. This requires building trust with a client and understanding their goals.”
Samantha has represented clients in both federal and state courts on a variety of different matters including criminal misdemeanors, land-lord tenant, tort law, Section 1983, and complex civil litigation. This variety of litigation experience allows her to tackle any issue that may arise for Hancock Daniel clients.  She has also served as the Co-Editor-in-Chief for Case Western Reserve University School of Law’s Health Matrix: Journal of Law Medicine. She is also published in the American Bar Association’s Health Lawyer.
