Juishree Samant is one of our personal injury attorneys at our Steinger, Greene & Feiner office in San Antonio, Texas. Samant started her career in the legal field in 2016 when she accepted a receptionist position at a personal injury law firm after graduating with their undergraduate degree. After five months, she was promoted to a paralegal position and worked as a paralegal for two years in the litigation department. During that time, her passion for helping people affected by car accidents developed, advocating for clients and protecting them from predatory practices commonly used by insurance companies. This led Juishree to go to law school and intern for plaintiffs and defense law firms to better understand the different methods.
Juishree has a reputation for being able to handle and serve clients whose cases were otherwise considered difficult. She has the ability to instill confidence in clients regarding their attorney and the service that the firm provides for the case. Samant hopes to assist clients at Steinger, Greene & Feiner and provide extra support throughout the litigation process. Samant loves ligating; she says there is nothing like the feeling of preparing for trial and speaking to people in the jury box about your client’s story to them in a way you cannot do in pre-trial.
Outside of the office, Juishree’s passions follow her. She volunteers at their alma mater, St. Mary’s School of Law, for the mock trial team. She plans to continue being an entry-level assistant coach for the mock trial team! To Juishree, the mock trial experience is invaluable and played a significant role in shaping her advocacy style. She wants to be there to help incoming classes to have that same experience.
