    Sam is an excellent attorney with an outstanding reputation -- at our old firm, she was known as an excellent resource for all estate and tax planning matters. Now that she has her own practice, I can say that she is business savvy in addition to her many legal talents.

    I have known Samantha for 2 years and can state unequivocally that she is incredibly knowledgable in the areas of tax and estate planning. I received exceptionally positive feedback from my clients that I referred to her. Samantha is also a wonderful resource who I turn to for answers to complicated issues for my clients regarding tax matters. She is a pleasure to deal work with and I highly recommend her for any tax and estate planning matters.
