Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Christopher B. Wigand

    I endorse this lawyer. Years ago when Sam was doing defense work he was opposing me on a case. He was always well prepared and made my job difficult. Since that time he has left defense work and started representing injured plaintiffs. I for one am glad that Sam is on the good side of the law and helping those who need his abilities the most. He is an outstanding lawyer and as asset to the legal community.

  • Cary Bartlow Hall

    I have known Sam since law school, and have always been impressed with his legal acumen and razor-sharp instinct. If I had my own injury case, Sam would be the first attorney I would call. Any client would be well-represented in Sam's more-than-capable hands, and I wholeheartedly endorse him in all practice areas.
