Samuel Velasquez likes to get to know people. He has a charismatic, personable way about him that allows him to forge relationships and develop an understanding of others and their needs. His amicable personality serves him well when working with clients to develop the best strategy to get the desired outcome in their case.

Samuel’s hard work and attention to detail pay off as he digs into each case and the specific details that differentiate it. Through that keen analysis, Samuel is able to put together strategic options that will achieve his client’s goals. Then he understands the importance of, and excels at, communicating clearly and honestly to his clients exactly what the best route to success will be.

When he’s not working on client cases, Samuel enjoys attending sporting events and concerts. He is also an avid traveler, as evidenced by the 17 countries he’s visited. The exploratory nature exhibited in his relationships and work is front and center in his travels as well – whether hiking in the outdoors or touring a new city. From glaciers and waterfalls to the great cities like London, Barcelona and Paris, Samuel loves planning a trip and exploring the world.

Giving back is also important to Samuel. As his career develops, one of his priorities is building on the example of his own mentors and others who have motivated and inspired him. He’s always looking for opportunities to pull others up as he continues to grow and find success.
