Sam earned his law degree from Creighton University Law School, graduating cum laude in 2003. He also studied business and political science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, graduating in 1999.

In 2006, Sam and his wife Amy relocated to Naples to start a family. Since then, he has dedicated himself to helping small business owners, entrepreneurs, real estate buyers, sellers and property managers. He believes that helping protect the business and real estate interests of local professionals also helps protect the unique quality of life that we all appreciate. One of Sam’s personal goals is to provide commonsense and fiscally sound solutions, with a personalized approach to each of his clients.

He is also a member of the Naples Area Board of Realtors (NABOR) and the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, where he also graduated from the Leadership Collier program in 2013.

For his leadership and community involvement, Sam has been recognized as one of Gulf Shore Business Magazine’s “40 Under 40” (2012), the Legal Aid Service of Collier County’s July 2011 Attorney of the Month, and was the recipient of the Lebanese American Chamber of Commerce Golden Cedar Award (2006).
