DescriptionSenior Associate Samuel A. Leven, Esq., has been working for The Baldwin Law Firm since December of 2010. A foreign service child, Sam spent his early childhood in Germany, Hungary, and Sweden before settling down in Northern Virginia at the age of ten, where he has remained a resident ever since. Sam attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology and then moved on to the University of Virginia for both college and law school. While at U.Va., Sam was a trial counsel responsible for defending fellow students facing expulsion because they were accused of violating the school’s Honor Code. In law school he participated in clinics which included representation of death row inmates during their post-conviction process and appellate litigation. After graduating from law school, Sam served as a fellow with the Public Defender’s Office in Loudoun County where he represented indigent defendants facing jailable misdemeanor charges. After his fellowship, he joined The Baldwin Law Firm where he developed his own niche practice within the firm. In addition to handling family law cases (including adoption), Sam also handles debt collection matters (representing both creditors and debtors) and has accepted a number of pro bono appointments in civil matters through Legal Services of Northern Virginia. Sam is also the Firm’s appellate lawyer, and takes appeals of all sorts to the Court of Appeals of Virginia and Virginia Supreme Court, regardless of whether or not he (or the Firm) was involved in the case at trial. Sam is admitted to the Bar in Virginia and Washington, DC, and is additionally admitted to practice in the federal Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. Sam has a particular interest in promoting a broader understanding of the law amongst the general public, and as a result he has written extensively about the law. That has included having had an article on mandatory imputation of income published in the June, 2017 edition of Virginia Lawyer Magazine (the official publication of the Virginia State Bar), and having maintained a legal blog titled The Law is Your Friend. Sam is also a member of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association and the Fairfax Bar Association (FBA), for the latter of which he is currently serving on the Board of Directors. Further, within the FBA, Sam serves on its Circuit Court Committee (including its Domestic Relations Sub-Committee) and Legislative Committee (for which he served as Chair from 2018 to 2020), and has in the past served on the FBA’s Lawyer Referral Service Committee. In these capacities, Sam helped prepare the 2015 version of the Fairfax County Pro Se Divorce Packet, was a named contributor to the 2018 version of the Fairfax Circuit Court Practice Manual, and has been a presenter in several of the Domestic Relations Sub-Committee’s brown bag lunch series legal education presentations. Sam also serves as a motions conciliator with the FBA’s motions conciliation program a free mediation program that seeks to resolve certain contested motions on the Fairfax Circuit Court’s Friday Motions Day docket. In June of 2017, Sam was elected by the Virginia State Bar Council to serve as a member of the Fifth District Committee, Section III a position to which he was re-elected in June of 2019. District Committees are a core component of the Virginia State Bar’s disciplinary system, as District Committees (and their subcommittees) oversee investigations of complaints of misconduct against attorneys, adjudicate the claims, refer cases to the statewide Disciplinary Board where a sanction of suspension or disbarment might be warranted, and issue lesser sanctions. In this role, Sam is helping to preserve the integrity of the legal profession in Virginia, and protect the public from unethical conduct by attorneys. Sam has also received recognition for his work on behalf of clients, including being given a Martindale-Hubbell Client Champion Gold designation (formerly known as the Client Distinction Award) every year since 2013, and having been named as a Virginia and DC-region Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine from 2018 to 2020. These awards are based on a combination of client satisfaction and recognition from fellow attorneys, and are designed to reflect a high level of skill displayed both in litigation, and in meeting client needs and goals. At home, Sam is a married father of two children and one dog whose passions include politics, the (World Series Champion!) Washington Nationals, and goofing off with his kids. He is also very pleased to have the opportunity to follow his childhood passion for music as a clarinet player with the Main Street Community Band in the City of Fairfax Band Association.
