Pamela Samuels Young

Mistress of Ceremonies

Pamela Samuels Young, Mistress of CeremoniesBy day, attorney Pamela Samuels Young works as Managing Counsel for Labor and Employment Law for Toyota Motors Sales, U.S.A., Inc., in Torrance. By night (and any other time she can squeeze in), Pamela writes fast-paced legal thrillers which have earned her the title “John Grisham with a sister’s twist.” The absence of women and people of color depicted as hotshot attorneys in today’s legal fiction prompted Pamela to start writing several years ago when she was a senior associate at O’Melveny & Myers’ L.A office. She is now an Essence best-selling author of five legal thrillers and multiple short stories. The Compton native is a graduate of USC, Northwestern University and UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law.
