In Memoriam for Partner Bruce E. Sample (1965-2018)
It is with great sadness that we announce that our partner and dear friend, Bruce Sample, passed away on Friday, April 13, 2018. Bruce joined the DAR family shortly after graduating from Southwestern University School of Law, where he attended on a full academic scholarship, was a member of the Law Review and graduated with Honors in the top 10% of his class. In over two decades of practice at the firm, Bruce was a shining star and became an expert in the fields of insurance bad faith and casualty litigation, obtaining defense verdicts in 13 out of 17 jury trials. He was admired and respected by all of his fellow attorneys, support staff, clients and opposing counsel for his broad knowledge of the law, his compassion and his extraordinary wit and sense of humor. Over the years, Bruce also mentored countless young associates and his positive impact on their lives and legal careers is his lasting legacy.
Bruce was a devoted family man who loved his three children and his wife, Katie, beyond measure. He was also a cancer survivor and an inspiration to all who knew him.
He will be missed dearly by his family here at DAR.
