Getting to Know Sam Page

Sam Page joined McKinley Irvin’s Tacoma office in 2018. We learned more about Sam and his practice in a brief Q&A session.

If you weren’t a lawyer, what would you be?

I think teaching would be another great way to give back to others. I come from a family of educators, so it would be a natural choice. I would teach high school government.

What makes McKinley Irvin different?

Everything we do is designed to make the client as happy as possible. Our clients come first and achieving the best outcome for them is our highest priority. We instill this as part of our policies and practices at every level. Every team member, not only the attorney, is focused on our clients’ wellbeing. On my team, our paralegal, Jackie, and legal assistant, Electra, are deeply devoted to our clients and our clients love working with them.

What is the most valuable thing you do for your clients?

I really connect with my clients and identify with their cases on a personal level. Aside from lawyering and being detail oriented, I’m able to empathize and provide support during a difficult time. I want my clients to know I’m in their corner, I care for them, and I want them to have the best outcome.

What are you most proud of on your resume?

I care about access to justice for underserved populations. I have experience helping tribal communities and low-income individuals access the court system and navigate it successfully.

On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me…

Drinking coffee and watching football with my family.

What’s something your clients would never guess about you?

I’m a bad band geek. I play the saxophone and was a band camp counselor for several years. So, yeah. Watch out.
