About Samuel Page

Samuel J. Page has devoted his career to helping people navigate sensitive family law matters.

"I practice family law because it allows me to personally connect with my clients and assist them in a meaningful way. In no other field am I able to make such a direct impact."

Sam has a natural ability to remain centered in even the most tumultuous cases. His calm disposition puts his clients at ease and makes him especially effective in high conflict situations.

"Resolving a high conflict case, especially short of trial, is very rewarding. I am motivated to help my clients reach a positive resolution and recover their peace of mind without the stress of trial."

While he undertakes to settle cases favorably as quickly as facts allow, Sam is a strong advocate in the courtroom. He views litigation as another tool to attain positive results for his client.

Appointed as a Commissioner Pro Tempore, Sam is called to preside over matters in Pierce County Superior Court when a sitting Commissioner is unavailable. He is a regular speaker on cutting-edge family law topics and served as an adjunct professor for Seattle University School of Law’s Applied Family Law and Applied DVPO Practicum.

Sam and his wife are proud parents. Their family also includes two large Goldendoodles, Mabel and Ernie. In his free time, Sam enjoys golfing and playing saxophone in a local community band.
