Former Federal Trial Attorney for U.S. Department
of Homeland Security, Clete Samson, Joins Kutak Rock LLP
Kutak Rock LLP is pleased to announce that Clete P. Samson has joined its Omaha office. Samson served as a federal trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for the past seven years where he prosecuted removal cases throughout Nebraska and Iowa and served as the point of contact on all worksite enforcement cases across the nation. Samson’s arrival further bolsters Kutak Rock’s litigation and immigration bench strength.
Samson provides clients with key preventative advice to help them avoid liability associated with improper I-9 compliance; and if there has been an action filed by a governmental agency, he represents clients to ensure the government action is lawful and the matter is resolved fairly and expeditiously. Mr. Samson also has extensive knowledge in the areas of immigration removal and custody proceedings, criminal/immigration matters, and visa compliance. His experience includes commercial and employment litigation.
Samson said, “I wanted to utilize my extensive immigration experience on a national level, helping clients prevent and solve problems, and Kutak Rock provides me with a perfect opportunity to do that.”
Mike Curry, Managing Partner of Kutak Rock’s Omaha office and member of the firm’s Executive Committee, said, “We are fortunate to have Clete join Kutak Rock. The president-elect made immigration a significant issue during his campaign. We look forward to having Clete guide our clients through immigration-related issues during this time of considerable uncertainty.”
Samson earned his juris doctorate, magna cum laude, from the Arizona State University College of Law in 2006 where he also served as Editor-in-Chief of the Arizona State Law Journal. He earned his bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, from Doane College in 2003. He is admitted to practice law in Arizona and his admission to practice law in Nebraska is pending.
