  • Instructor Bio

    Samuel Marks

    Sam Marks graduated from Drake Law School after completing undergraduate work at the University of Iowa. After passing the bar, he developed a general law practice that included work in criminal, family and juvenile law. As time passed, he began focusing specifically in the areas of bankruptcy and consumer protection. To date he has helped more than 3,000 people in bankruptcy.

    Sam frequently provides lectures to attorneys, business professionals and the public on the topics of bankruptcy and consumer protection and how these issues affect other aspects of the law. He has received a number of awards and is proud to be a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys and the National Association of Consumer Advocates. He’s involved with those organizations because they’ve provided resources he’s been able to use to help his clients–not because touting membership is a good marketing strategy or because it might impress someone..

    He always enjoys a good story or a joke and you won’t catch him wearing a suit unless he’s on the way to a funeral or to court. If you do see Sam in court, you might see two little girls with him. Sam enjoyed spending time with his father and grandfather in their law offices and on court visits as a child and is carrying on the tradition with his children. There’s been a member of the Marks family practicing law in Des Moines since 1938 and Sam is proud of that tradition.
