Samuel Packard was born as the 10th of 13 children. Growing up, Samuel was well-rounded and well-liked. He played football, sang in the choir, ran track, and became an Eagle Scout. He was also active in his church and community. After graduating from high school, Samuel lived in Mexico City for almost two years, where he became fluent in Spanish and fell in love with the people and the culture.
After returning from Mexico, Samuel married the lovely and talented Robin Orsak. He finished college and went to law school at the University of Houston. After graduating from law school in 2003, Samuel started working as a Social Security disability lawyer, where he quickly earned a reputation as a compassionate and successful lawyer with a strong commitment to the people he served. Since the beginning of his legal career, Samuel has had one focus: helping people who can’t work obtain Social Security disability benefits, and he has gotten very good at it. He has practiced at every level up to the federal circuit court, and has helped literally thousands of people receive Social Security disability benefits. Samuel is one of the few attorneys in Texas who is board-certified in Social Security disability law by the National Board of Social Security Disability Advocacy.
Samuel and Robin live in San Antonio with their five beautiful children. Samuel still volunteers for his church and for various charities. He also runs at events sponsored by local charities and, not too long ago, he ran a full marathon.
