After starting out at a newspaper, serving as press secretary on a gubernatorial campaign, and then working for an oil and gas land company in Texas, Sam made the decision to move to Colorado and attend University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law, where he received his J.D. in 2015.

A Message From Sam

I love the people I work with because they possess a wealth of experience and knowledge and are humble and always eager to help.

I’m a big fan of mental games such as chess, crosswords, puzzles, etc., and what I love about law is that it is a puzzle. I enjoy the mental exercise required to analyze a novel legal issue, the distillation process to come up with, and the satisfaction upon finding, a simple solution to a complex answer.
