As a first-generation college graduate, Samantha has always cared about hard work. She attended Elon University in North Carolina on full academic scholarship, graduating with a degree in economics. She was the founding president of her sorority and orchestrated numerous community service events in that role.
Upon graduating, Samantha moved to Los Angeles to work in television and film. She enjoyed a successful career working for Netflix, ESPN, National Geographic, FX, and VH1. But Samantha missed the commitment to service that she cultivated during her college experience. For that reason, she left Hollywood and went to law school–pursuing a lifelong dream of becoming a lawyer.
Samantha attended Santa Clara University School of Law, graduating in 2020. Soon after, she moved to Las Vegas and joined The Paul Powell Law Firm. She has dedicated herself to serving the community ever since.
Samantha focuses her practice on pre-litigation claims. She understands that injured people need a voice to hold billionaire corporations accountable when they won’t be fair to members of our community. Samantha takes great pride in being that voice. Samantha is a fierce negotiator and ensures that all of her clients get the dignity and respect they deserve. She loves her job and hopes that passion comes through in the service she provides to the community.
