About Sam Feinson

Attorney, co-founder of Faber Feinson PLLC, cyclist, adventurer, strong swimmer

After growing up in New Hampshire, I attended college in Montreal and graduated from Seattle University School of Law in 2012. Never one to settle down for too long, I have lived in five states, the District of Columbia, and three other countries. I feel immensely lucky to now call Port Townsend my home.

While I absolutely love to argue in (and out of) court, I am most passionate about working with clients. A lawyer has to be able to explain the legal system, to understand a client's goals, and to approach each problem with the client's interests at the forefront. This is a service industry, and I am proud of my ability to connect with the people I serve.

My first love in law is criminal defense, but I am also available to help people with family law and landlord/tenant issues..
