During his senior year, Mr. Sammons was awarded an internship with a prominent NFL agent in south Florida.

Mr. Sammons was an avid participant in intramural athletics and made many lasting relationships with his fellow classmates, one of which is Hale Law Partner, Patrick Iyampillai.

It was then that Mr. Sammons knew being a plaintiff personal injury lawyer was his true calling.
Following graduation from Stetson Law and passing the Florida Bar Exam, Mr. Sammons was offered an associate attorney position with the same personal injury firm he previously clerked for. Over the course of his career, Mr. Sammons has handled hundreds of personal injury cases from their inception to their resolution, including protracted litigation.
