Biography

Sam has served on the Seattle Police Foundation board since 2005. He is a senior partner at Oles Morrison Rinker & Baker, a firm founded in Seattle in 1893, and now also has offices in Anchorage, Alaska, and Oakland, California. His practice focuses primarily on representing construction contractors in construction disputes, which often involve complex, multi-party cases.

While he takes pride in national recognition with success in partnering and dispute resolution, he has gained outstanding results before state and federal courts throughout the Western United States and Alaska. Sam has also prosecuted claims before Boards of Contract Appeals and the United States Claims Court in cases involving the federal government. Additionally, he participates extensively in arbitration proceedings, both as counsel and as arbitrator. He is the only attorney to have been inducted into the University of Washington Construction Hall of Fame, and holds the distinction of serving as a Director of The Beavers, an honorary heavy construction engineering association headquartered in Los Angeles, and serves as a Trustee to the Beavers Charitable Trust.

Sam earned his undergraduate degree in Construction Management from the University of Washington, where he has served on the Construction Industry Advisory Council since its inception, and he has been an active member of the Western Washington University Foundation Board for 15 years.
