After an accident, it can be difficult for an injury victim to stand
up to an insurance company by themselves and seek fair compensation. Sam
is a compassionate ally and an aggressive fighter who is ready to face
the insurance companies on behalf of his clients. Sam is based out of
our Denver office, where he tirelessly seeks justice for those in need.

Sam grew up in Denver, Colorado, and earned his Juris Doctor
from the University of Gonzaga School of Law. Before studying law, Sam attended
William Jewell College where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in History and
Organizational Communication. Sam was also a four-time letterman for the
William Jewell Cardinals Baseball team. During his time in law school, Sam was
the Comments Editor of the Gonzaga Law Review, a two-time member of the Saul
Lefkowitz Moot Court Team, and Secretary of the Student Bar Association. Sam’s
legal career began at an estate planning law firm, where he was a Legal
Assistant. It was there that he realized how much he truly enjoyed helping
others with his legal experience. While in law school, Sam gained valuable
experience as a judicial intern at the Spokane County Superior Court and as a
legal intern at a prominent defense firm.  

Sam is licensed in Colorado, and is ready to advocate for
people in personal injury claims, such as motor vehicle accidents, premises
liability, and dog bite cases. Sam’s driving goal is to take the burden of the
case off the shoulders of the clients he represents, allowing them to focus on
their recovery. Sam believes that the victims of accidents should not have to
navigate through the legal process alone. He is proud to take on all the legal
work for his clients so they may focus on getting their lives back on track
after an accident.

Outside of the office, Sam enjoys spending time with his
family, golfing, and playing with his two basset hounds, Walter and Odie. Sam
is also an avid football fan – Go Broncos!
