University of San Diego School of Law
Samantha Greene handles criminal offenses ranging from misdemeanor drunk driving to murder and sex cases. She has tried cases in all state court houses, as well as in various federal courts across the country. Greene has earned acquittals in many of her cases including domestic violence, driving under the influence, battery and drug importation.
After graduating from University of California, Santa Barbara, Greene moved to San Diego to attend law school and worked throughout her law school career. After clerking at the Office of the Public Defender, Greene was convinced that criminal law was the only choice for her. After taking the bar, she was hired as an associate attorney for Steigerwalt and Associates APLC, where she remained for more than seven years. Greene then spent about three years working as a Deputy District Attorney before returning, part time, to the practice of criminal defense.
Greene is a member of the San Diego County Bar Association.
I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley and, after spending four years in Santa Barbara, I knew I didn’t want to be far from the ocean. San Diego seemed like the perfect place to tackle law school and I never wanted to leave. My father was a lawyer and, as I grew up, I didn’t know there were any career options other than the practice of law. I guess I have to thank my dad for failing to mention other career options because I met my husband, Dan Greene, at Steigerwalt and Associates APLC. When I am not defending the accused, my favorite thing to do is spend time with my husband, two children and doggie.
