My name is Samuel Prim, and I am a native of Dothan, Alabama, having attended elementary, middle, and high school in Dothan. Beginning when I was 9 years old, I have been involved in agriculture through my family’s small beef cattle herd and the Houston County 4-H Program. In 4-H, I showed cattle and was on the Livestock Judging Team.
After graduating Northview High School in Dothan in 1993, I attended Auburn University’s College of Agriculture where I received a bachelor of science degree in Agronomy & Soils in May of 1996. Then, I crossed the State of Alabama and attended the University of Alabama’s School of Law where I graduated in May of 2000. After graduation, I returned home and have been in the private practice of law for more than 15 years.
In 2003, I also began a small row-crop farm in Gordon, Alabama, that has grown to around 500 irrigated and dry-land acres today. My main crops are peanuts and cotton, but I have also grown corn and small grains, as well as some produce, and grazed stocker cattle in the past.
I have represented farmers, ag lenders, and ag businesses throughout my career. I truly enjoy meeting and representing farmers in our area. I believe my education and practical experience “on the farm” allow me to understand farm and agricultural issues much quicker and practically than someone without that background.
I am licensed to practice law in the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and
Mississippi. I also write and issue real property title insurance for First American Title Insurance in the states of Alabama and Florida.
