Sara Samuels, J.D., CLU®, RICP®

Wealth Management Advisor


Sara Samuels began her relationship with Northwestern Mutual as a client with The McTigue Financial Group, while still a practicing litigation attorney and part-time fitness trainer. However, Sara desired the opportunity to be directly involved in assisting people to attain financial well-being and form long-term relationships, just as her own representative had done for her; and now works with families and businesses as their advocates.
