Poor decisions led to my Florida Bar investigative hearing. But the wise decision of hiring Samantha Johnson got me through it.
Before hiring Samantha I was a nervous wreck. I was almost certain The Board was going to deny my application, and all the hard work I put in to passing the bar exam would be for naught. However after my first consultation with Samantha I felt like a huge weight had been lifted. She calmed me down, and walked me through the process. Going forward she spent countless hours preparing me for the Review Board's harsh interrogation. When the day of the hearing finally came I was ready for any question they had to throw at me. Everything they asked, Samantha had already asked me before in our review sessions. Even when they tried to throw me a curve ball, Samantha had me looking for it and ready to knock it out of the park. Because of her I walked out of that hearing feeling confident that all my hard work would soon pay off.
A few weeks later Samantha called to tell me that Board recommended my admissions to the Florida Bar. She honestly seemed just as excited as I was, and legitimately happy for me. I am now an attorney, with a practice of my own thanks to Samantha Johnson.
Samantha did an excellent job representing me in front of the Board of Bar Examiners. She was thorough, detailed, compassionate, and knowledgeable. After a contentious hearing, I was granted a license to practice law. She is an excellent attorney. I highly recommend her services.
I would recommend anyone who is concerned about a FL Board of Bar Examiners investigative hearing to hire Samantha Johnson in order to maximize the possibility of acceptance by the Board. Samantha Johnson worked with me to ensure that I was as prepared and comfortable as I possibly could be for my hearing. I realized afterward the hearing that had I not hired her for insight and help, I would not have been accepted by the Board as I had numerous serious issues I faced and definitely would not have addressed them appropriately. She also worked with me regarding her fees which I greatly appreciated because I would not have been able to afford to hire an attorney otherwise. I sincerely believe that hiring Samantha Johnson was one of the best decisions I made prior to attaining my FL Bar License.
I hired Ms. Johnson to represent me at my FL Bar informal hearing. She did a fantastic job in preparing me to answer the board's questions. Her attorney fee was also very reasonable and she was worth every penny. I received my bar clearance and I'm thankful for her help.
I hired Ms. Johnson to represent me in a Florida Board of Bar Examiners investigative hearing. She was very informative and knowledgeable of what I was to expect from the hearing and very helpful in preparing me for the hearing and debriefing me afterwards. She was also there to provide some much needed moral support. I was very thankful to Ms. Johnson for being so accommodating of my financial situation. As a recent law school graduate, money was very sparse and she was willing to set up a payment plan for me to pay her retainer. Ms. Johnson is an excellent attorney in many ways, from her competency and diligence to her willingness to work around my busy schedule and financial situation. I would recommend her to anyone facing an investigative hearing. Further, I am sure she is just as competent in other areas of law which she practices.
Quite frankly Samantha Johnson is the reason I received my bar card so quickly. I had considered simply attending a bar character and fitness hearing by myself, but I must say that hiring Samantha was the best decision I ever made. She worked above and beyond to make sure I was prepared. Her method of preparation is key. As most would be, I was terrified at the thought of having a bar hearing, but by the time that date came, I was undoubtedly ready and confident. Result: Cleared within two weeks following my bar hearing with no further action to be taken. Please note that I certainly had more than just the average legal history so this was no easy feat. Now I am gainfully employed and enjoying every second of being an Attorney. Thank you Samantha, having you by my side throughout the process was well worth it.
she was so involved in my case I tought she was part of my familly. I really felt that she love her job and helping people.
