During law school, Sam was a member of the Student Bar Association, Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, and the Small Business Clinic. After graduation, Sam was admitted to the New York State Bar in June 2019.

Upon admission to the Bar, Sam moved to New York City, where she worked as an Associate at the law firm of Kaufman Borgeest & Ryan LLP. While at KBR, she focused in the areas of medical malpractice, skilled nursing, assisted living, and home care & hospice litigation.
