Employment Law Attorney, Samuel C. Wilson graduated from Penn State University with his Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing and earned his Juris Doctorate from The University of Dayton School of Law. Prior to becoming an attorney, Sam primarily worked assisting in business and economic development in the not-for-profit sector. There, he earned valuable insight into how businesses operate which he uses to help him explain legal issues in a non-legal way to his clients. This helps his clients understand the process better, making them a part of the team as opposed to just a party to the case.

Sam brings a keen instinct and impressive ability to advocate for his clients at the Derek Smith Law Group. He regularly works on a broad range of employment discrimination cases. He thoroughly enjoys working as an Employment Law Attorney because of his firm belief that people who want to go work and earn an honest living should have the opportunity to do it free from a harassing and hostile work environment. He also believes cases should not be a drawn-out event. He works diligently to tries to settle his cases quickly and privately. If this is not possible, he is not afraid to litigate his cases all the way to a jury verdict, fully understanding that each step through the litigation process is another possible opportunity to settle the case.

Sam secured a settlement over $400,000 in gender discrimination and sexual harassment case filed in New Jersey. The tenacity and advocacy he put into that case to secure the settlement is the same strength he brings to the table on every case in which he works.
