Samuel D. Stevens


Sam was an Elder of the Algonquin Anishinabeg Nation and the founder of Stevens & Company Law. He became a Lawyer in 1984. He worked for the Faculty of Law at U.B.C. until 1990 when he began working as the Administrator of the Justice of the Peace Program in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.

Sam established an exciting and diverse law practice in Parksville in 1994. He was Claimant Counsel in the Independent Assessment Process (IAP) for survivors of Indian Residential Schools. He also assisted First Nations in developing meaningful ways to have their community participate in the overall decisions being made by the First Nation Government.

Sam’s approach to the practice of law is evident in his relationships with each client. He built his relationships by using the 5 A’s: Acknowledge the client, Appreciate who the client is, Accept the client for who the client is, Affirm the client and Act on all of these as fundamental principles in establishing the trust needed to develop that special relationship with each client that is so critical in helping his clients with their important legal issues.

Sam believed strongly in building a stronger community. He attended the Parksville Fellowship Baptist Church and took great pride in doing God's work. Sam was truly a courageous leader who inspired many to pursue law as a career. His legacy lives on as his daughter, Jennifer Trotti, now leads Stevens & Company Law Firm. Jennifer is inspired to carry on the values and mission of her late father.

Sam Stevens, March 30, 1943 to December 01, 2023.
