A Modern Firm With Historic Roots

Our firm dates to 1846, when Harry Bingham began practicing law in Littleton. Bingham twice became a New Hampshire Supreme Court justice. Each time, however, he returned to our law firm in Littleton. Over the years, many prominent lawyers have worked in our firm, several of whom have later become judges.

Harry Bingham’s son, George H. Bingham, joined the practice in 1891. Henry Dodge joined the firm in 1919, followed by Francis W. Moulton in 1945. In 1966, Peter W. Smith left the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office to join the firm, where he practiced until becoming a Superior Court judge in 1985.

Stephen U. Samaha joined the firm in 1973 after practicing with a Manchester law firm. Timothy Vaughan joined our firm in 1978, leaving in 2003 to become a Superior Court judge. In 2003, Mark C. Russell merged his practice with the firm, creating Samaha & Russell PA. After merging practices, the firm added Jody A. Hodgdon in 2005 and James A. Shuchman in 2006.
