Mr. Valsamidis was ready to give up from the very beginning. He provided misinformation about a particular defense and when I looked it up and proved that he was wrong, he agreed with me but said that he didn't want to use that defense. He made the statement, "I wish that law library didn't exist" (or words to that affect). He provided one story to my wife and then another story to me, so I do not find him trustworthy. It takes him days to respond back to you. I don't think he is Knowledgeable about the law. And you only hear back from him a few days before the trial. He went on a vacation to Greece and kept a pending legal matter on hold for over a month. I would NOT recommend this lawyer.
