Samuel R. Carl
Samuel R. Carl joined Taxman, Pollock, Murray & Bekkerman in January 2018. Prior to joining the firm, he spent years protecting the rights of injured victims and their families, securing millions of dollars for his clients through jury verdicts and settlements. Sam has shown throughout his career that he is not afraid of a challenge, and will fight passionately to hold accountable those responsible for harming innocent people. Known as a caring, diligent and fierce advocate, he is well-respected by his colleagues as well as his opponents.
Sam is aware that many injured people have little to no experience with claims or lawsuits, which is why constant communication with his clients is a top priority. He believes that an attorney’s duty is not only to aggressively pursue justice, but also to ensure that the people he represents fully understand and feel comfortable with what can often seem like a confusing or intimidating process.
Sam was admitted to the Illinois State Bar in 2011, but his courtroom experience started before he even graduated law school. As an Illinois Supreme Court Rule 711 law clerk with the Cook County Public Defender’s office, Sam successfully litigated and won his first trial when he was only 24 years old. A decade later, Sam continues to dedicate himself to his clients, using every tool and resource available to provide the highest level of service for those he represents.
Sam obtained his Juris Doctor from DePaul’s College of Law in May 2011, where he was named to the Dean’s List. Before that, he received his Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Delaware where he earned distinctions as a scholar athlete. Sam was born and raised in the Chicagoland area and currently lives in the West Loop neighborhood.
