Jeremy was a pleasure to work with. He explained to me what was happening with my unemployment case throughout the process and made sure I was prepped for my hearing. I realized throughout the case that I could have easily lost the case because of my own lack of knowledge, had I not hired this firm to represent me. I felt comfortable working with him and he answered all of my questions. I think this guy must work around the clock; he took my calls at what seems like all hours of the early morning and evening. I would highly recommend this law firm and specifically Jeremy Samuels. They really know what they're doing!

Over the course of my unemployment case Mr. Samuels kept me informed of the situation as I was constantly involved in other areas of my life. Attorney Samuels did an excellent job in examining every aspect of the case. He presented the facts of the case and a closing statement that all I can say was impressive. Throughout the process the staff at Sivinski & Smith, LLC were helpful in resolving my problems. Thanks to Attorney Samuels I won my case and received what I had earned.

I contacted Sivinski and Smith to handle my unemployment case which was initially denied. Jamie was very helpful in getting me crucial paperwork handled. Jeremy did a great job during the telephone hearing. He did an excellent job on cross examination of my previous employer,and got to the heart of the matter with a great closing statement. The determination was reversed and I was awarded full unemployment benefits. The people at Sivinski and Smith are very professional and courteous. I highly recommend their services.

I would recommend Jeremy Samuels. Mr. Samuels was able to have my unemployment benefits allowed! This was a true blessing. Here is brief explanation of my situation and how Jeremy Samuel and Sivinski and Smith staff took care of everything! My initial unemployment was denied, so I filed the 1st appeal on my own, it was also denied. I was extremely overwhelmed on how to go about the next appeal process. I then contact Sivinski and Smith Law firm for assists with the next step of the appeal process. I made one phone call to the law office and was connected with Mr. Samuels and he took care of everything. Very prompt on following up with phone calls and knowledgeable on areas to address and how to address them. Thank you !

Jeremey and staff was the best, they helped me win my Unemployment hearing that took 3 months, they were fully prepared when it came to the hearing date and we won the case, the hearing officer reversed the decision because Jeremy was fully prepared and had all his ducks in a roll, I want to thank Jeremy again and also Jami she was the best!

Hired Sivinski and Smith to try to get my unemployment which i rightfully deserved. Jeremy handled my case and i thought did a great job. He used the right terminology during my appeal process to get the decision reversed. He did a great job going over everything with me before hand to get me prepared for what was going to happen. Jeremy and the rest of the staff kept me calm and i felt trusting around them. I would recommend them. Thank you

Jeremy was very friendly and easy to work with. He took the stress out of my unemployment case by knowing the law and keeping in contact when he needed to. I was prepped and confident when my hearing day came and very pleased when we won the case! Their firm charged a fair price too, I feel it was money well spent.

My husband and I did not know what to do. He was denied unemployment, we appealed and it was denied again. We felt that he deserved the unemployment, because the reason he was fired was not for "just cause". So, I looked up attorney's. I found Sivinsky & Smith. We dealt with Jeremy. He was great.! We did not know what to do to get a court hearing or what to say once in court. Jeremy was very thorough, informative, knowledgeable and fast. He handled our case very well. We are very happy with the outcome. We won our case and now are receiving unemployment. Which is really good considering we have a mortgage, two car payments and bills to pay for. I would highly recommend Sivinsky & Smith to anyone I know that has a problem with unemployment. Thank you so much for all your hard work, your company was worth every penny. :)
(btw, something is wrong with this page, because I tried to give this company 5 stars for excellant and it would not let me, so had to choose 4 stars)

I was wrongfully fired from my job and my employers were untruthful about the circumstances. This has never happened to me before and it seemed unlikely that I could draw unemployment... That is until I hired Jeremy Samuels. At the hearing, he quickly got to the truth of the matter and exposed my former employer. He went over the hearing with me before hand and prepared me... took the scare out of it. Thank you Jeremy.

I hired Jeremy for a DUI. He explained everything in detail and I knew up front what to expect in a situation in which I had no knowledge about. I dont know exactly what it was that he was able to do, but he found a way to get my DUI charge reduced to a reckless op. Jeremy spent a lot of time explaining to me the details and effort he was putting into the case, which made me feel I could trust he was doing everything possible to help me out. He definitely did help me out and I was thrilled the charges were reduced. I am very glad I hired an attorney that actually put a lot of time and effort into my case, especially since it seemed to be a little bit of a lower flat fee compared to some other places I checked in to. Thank you Jeremy.

I hired Jeremy Samuels to represent me for a DUI charge, the first criminal charge of my life. He consistently failed to return my calls, showed up late multiple times for court hearings (which doesn't exactly give one a favorable impression to the judge), and left most of the communication to his secretary, Jamie. Per his recommendation, I decided to plea down to a lesser charge, even though my BAC was never tested (not at the scene or in jail). He said we had very little chance of success should we go to trial, and seemed much more concerned with wrapping the case up as quickly as possible (presumably to get to other, higher paying cases). When speaking to the judge directly, Jeremy wasn't articulate. He stuttered and carried himself like one would expect from an inexperienced, unfocused attorney. Several months later, when I needed clarification on a few things related to the case, he never returned my calls/emails. I left messages with Jamie and called everyday for three weeks, never getting an answer other than "Jeremy's very busy, I left him a message with your concerns and he should get back to you." Jeremy Samuels DOES NOT put it in even the most minimal amount of effort and care one would expect when hiring an attorney with their hard-earned money. AVOID HIM AT ALL COSTS.

I was very pleased with the job that Jeremy did with my case. He took an unfortunate situation and turned it around with positive results. I would of NEVER been able to win my case without his knowledge and his expertise in his field.
