Samuel Kane began as a mathematician. He was in the Mathematics Association of America and took part as both a guest and a speaker in several seminars on topics such as abstract mathematical theories. Mr. Kane attended Southeastern University, earning his degree in Mathematics before earning his JD with Honors at the University of Miami School of Law and graduating Magnum Cum Laude with distinction from the Order of the Coif. In addition, he served as a Justice in the Supreme Court at his law school.
Following law school, Mr. Kane worked for the Honorable Judge Robert C. Brack as a federal law clerk in the United States District Court in Las Cruces, New Mexico. His experience there taught him a judge’s perspective on legal practice and court proceedings.
Mr. Kane continuously works to expand his legal knowledge by going to legal seminars and courses. Currently, he is licensed to practice in Florida and New Mexico. He opened his office in 2004, working with a large range of the law but emphasized on personal and catastrophic injury. Mr. Kane has considerable experience working as a trial lawyer, having participated in more than 1,000 jury and bench trials. For a number of years, he maintained his public defender contract with the City of Las Cruces, for whom he litigated one trial minimum each month.
Mr. Kane has quite a bit of experience dealing with complicated probate cases which involve millions of dollars in disputes. He frequently prepares trusts, wills, and other documents for his clients and his extensive expertise gives him the advantage in wrongful death and other personal injury claims. Mr. Kane has the ability to address various related legal issues to help him win these cases; for instance, addressing potential probate and property loss issues that may result from catastrophic injury. He is also empathetic to his clients, understanding their additional suffering and difficulties as they recover. He makes certain he is available all day, every day, and frequently makes home visits to help his clients even more.
In keeping with his drive to help people, Mr. Kane often provides legal advice pro bono, working pro se at the Third Judicial District Court. For this and for his other charitable efforts, Mr. Kane was voted the Reader’s Choice Attorney by the readers of Las Cruces Sun News in 2013.
Mr. Kane specifically chose the bull as his business mascot, citing Arturo di Modica as his inspiration. Mr. Modica is a sculptor, most famous for Charging Bull, the bull statue he created and installed on Wall Street. Although it is generally believed that Charging Bull represents a strong economy, Mr. Modica says that it actually represents the American peoples’ personal strength and ability to recover from obstacles and adversity. He created Charging Bull with the intention of providing people with hope and inspiration after a stock market crash. People generally look for an attorney while facing some adversity for a major catastrophe. Mr. Kane believes it is vital to keep in mind that everyone has the ability and the strength to recover, overcome, and grow.
