His early life was marked by adversity, but it was his mother's indomitable spirit that truly defined his character.

He earned a BA in Sociology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and subsequently pursued a Juris Doctorate from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law. Armed with knowledge, determination, and a burning desire to make a difference, Sam embarked on his legal career.

Yet, what truly sets Sam apart is his unwavering commitment to providing each client with personalized attention and relentless legal representation.

But there is nothing in this world that Sam enjoys more than spending time with his family.
