About Samantha Boge

Samantha Boge

Samantha Boge began practicing law in a general practice in 1975.  Her first years of practice included a wide variety of disputes and transactions, including personal injury and contract litigation; other civil litigation including wage and hour disputes, lemon law cases, and other torts and real estate disputes.

Following this practice, Ms. Boge became Assistant General Counsel for the Florida Department of Administration, litigating civil rights disputes, rule challenges, civil service disputes; and cases presented to the State Retirement Commission.

Samantha Boge then began litigating construction related disputes, primarily involving contractors’ road and bridge claims for extra work, delays, differing subsurface conditions, bid disputes, and challenges to public bidders’ qualifications. She later expanded her civil litigation practice to include vertical construction, representing home owners’ associations; contractors; subcontractors; sureties; and design professionals.

In 1986, Ms. Boge was invited by the American Arbitration Association to join its commercial panel of arbitrators and subsequently began serving the legal profession as an arbitrator, while continuing her private practice of law.  Subsequently, the association also invited her to join its employment panel.

Ms. Boge became one of the first lawyers in Florida to be certified as a Circuit Court Mediator. In this capacity she has mediated a wide variety of disputes, including eminent domain claims, construction claims, employment discrimination claims, lemon law claims, personal injury claims, insurance disputes, and other tort claims.

In 2002, Samantha Boge joined Charles Dodson and continued her practice of civil litigation, along with arbitration and mediation.  Since 2008, Ms. Boge has confined her practice exclusively to arbitration, successfully adjudicating or negotiating over $100 million in claims.
