    • I do not recommend Samera Habib.
    • I hired Samera 1-3 years ago.
    • Samera handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was told a flat fee, then was charged $1500 more, and all i received was two court appearances, each about one hour and about a twenty minute office visit. She did absolutely nothing, i was given the exact same plea agreement as i was offered before she took my case, so in other words i received nothing for my money. She refused to speak to the DA, just sat there and kept quiet. When I called her on it I was accused of lying and was told that they "don't care if you are satisfied or not, you have to pay whatever we bill you!" I was also told that the difference between what I was quoted and what I was billed didn't matter, she had to spend more time on it so they had to bill me. In hindsight I wish I had never called them. I was told by a very reputable attorney (Harvey Steinberg) that everything she did was wrong, down to having a client present when talking to the DA. This was by far the worse experience I've had with any attorney, I would personally recommend Gregg Greenstein or Sarah Hersch if I needed help again, this place was nothing more than a mistake.

    • I recommend Samera Habib.
    • I hired Samera 1-3 years ago.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Sameria helped me through a difficult case. I had to take family leave on my court date and she was very prompt and professional in helping me resolve this issue. She is very sensitive, empathetic and honest. I felt very comfortable with her as she has a down-to-earth, no nonsense personality. Would most certainly recommend her.

    • I recommend Samera Habib.
    • I hired Samera 1-3 years ago.
    • Samera handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Samera helped me through my divorce with extreme professionalism and advanced knowledge. She was very timely with her communications. I appreciated the fact that we corresponded via email instead of snail mail. Everything she did was accurate and in my best interest. She is very detail oriented and didn't let anything slip through the cracks.

    • I recommend Samera Habib.
    • I hired Samera 1-3 years ago.
    • Samera handled my General Practice matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    During a recent life changing event I searched for a female attorney. After an extensive search, I found Ms. Habib. During my consultation with her I realized that she was a good choice. She is very caring, knowledgable and always keeps the best interest of her client in mind. If I had to go throght this again I would not change a thing especially the attorney (Ms. Habib).
