Before pursuing his ambitions of a career in the law, Mr. Bhimani spent over a decade active in the worlds of business and film. Sameer’s prior successes in management and the arts have combined to create a unique perspective that now informs his law practice. Sameer received his juris doctorate in 2007 from Thomas M. Cooley Law School, garnering several certificates of merit and graduating cum laude. While in law school, Sameer served on the Board of Editors of Law Review as the Symposium Editor. His first production, titled World Views Collide, was a standing-room-only debate on the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. It drew the largest turnout in the law school’s history. Sameer was also an intern for the Honorable William B. Murphy of the Michigan Court of Appeals, and that experience ignited his interest in advocacy and research and writing.
After being licensed, Sameer was selected for a competitive federal judicial clerkship in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, where he served under the Honorable Richard F. Suhrheinrich. Sam was responsible for a vast array of cases, including habeas corpus appeals, corporate restructuring, bankruptcy, immigration, insurance, Social Security, secured transactions, contracts, and the AEDPA. Several of Sameer’s model opinions formed the basis for published decisions of the Sixth Circuit.
Prior to joining the firm, Sameer was a litigation and appellate attorney at Hewson & Van Hellemont, PC. Sameer also maintains close ties to his alma mater, serving as an adjunct professor in the Research and Writing Department.
At Hackney Grover, Sameer focuses on No-Fault Litigation, Appellate Practice, and Medical Malpractice Defense Litigation.
