In Colorado, one of the biggest problems people face is finding affordable legal representation. It is Sam’s goal to combat the preconceived notion that good lawyers are only attainable to the rich, because in his opinion, everyone deserves the best advocate for their case. By forming his own firm, he practices his belief in honestly making sure you are getting the quality of representation you need at a reasonable cost.

At Ventola Law, our clients consist of businesses, partnerships, individuals, and religious organizations.

This firm’s biggest priority is to make our clients successful in all of their legal pursuits.
