Co-founding a startup during undergrad provided Sam invaluable business experience.

Gaining almost two years of experience in a startup company before law school ultimately shaped the kind of law career that Sam decided to build. Understanding client needs from a personal vantage point builds trust and is a key factor to a successful attorney-client relationship, and Sam knows his own experiences will help him provide valuable insight to his clients and his colleagues.

Although he comes from a family of lawyers, Sam’s law career was not predetermined. Despite envisioning himself in finance while studying economics, Sam’s startup experience propelled him into law. Sam knew he was well-equipped to advise clients in a way that would be most beneficial to their goals and aspirations.
