Attorney and Counsellor at Law
Sam was raised in the small town of White Hall, Illinois, in a farming family, and has been a licensed attorney since 2004. In his first few years of practice, Sam saw firsthand that many estate plans did not work the way they were intended. This led to his desire to focus his legal career extensively in the areas of results-oriented estate planning and trust administration in a firm that shared similar values to his own. The reputation of the Estate Planning Center, the Lifespan™ commitment to “Plans that Work,” and Curt Ferguson’s expertise drew him to pursue a career with The Estate Planning Center and relocate to the Salem area in 2011. Sam’s focus is in trust and estate settlement, and wealth reception—helping families to secure all the benefits of estate planning after a death.
