    • I recommend Samuel Wells.
    • I hired Samuel more than 3 years ago.
    • Samuel handled my Sexual Harassment matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    About 16 years ago I was a single mom lost my job and wasn't sure what to do. I originally had another attorney but he didn't return phone calls and didn't do much of anything. I asked him if he could recommend someone else to me and he said "I've seen this attorney in court and was very impressed" and gave me Sam's card. I was scared and didn't know if Sam could help me or would help me. Everyone in his office made me feel very comfortable and he is so kind and non-judgemental. He is very professional and is very easy to confide in even when you have a problem trusting people. He is very patient. I was thrilled with the way he handled my lawsuit. He treated me with respect and I learned a lot from him by listening to him. I will always recommend Sam to anyone that needs a
    superb employment or sexual harrassment attorney.

    • Samuel handled my Employment / Labor matter.

    Sam Wells is a legal heavyweight in all facets of employment and labor law. He has few equals in the appeals-court arena where he regularly snatches victory from other lawyers' losses. His mastery of the law and intricate attendant facts in both the trial and appeals venues enables him to connect with the bench and juries. He is an astute and tenacious litigator who presents both a compelling personal appearance and a striking courtroom demeanor. He is highly regarded by his peers and highly feared by his adversaries.

    Mr. Wells represented me in a racial discrimination matter several years ago. At the time I was working as general laborer for a huge, nationally known construction contractor which focuses on government projects. I was continually call racial epithet and when work was slow, the African-Americans were the first to be laid off and the last to be re-hired because of their race.

    I eventually wanted to see a lawyer about my situation. I was recommended to Mr. Wells by a very prominent Los Angeles lawyer. I went to see him, without and appointment, he and his staff were very understanding and helpful. They took on my case and vigorously fought a very tough battle on my behalf. Right before the trial the defendant, settled my case for 1.8 million. If it weren’t for Mr. Wells, I don’t know what would happened to me. He is bright man and cares for his clients. I would recommend Mr. Wells without any hesitation. The world could use more lawyers like him.

    • I recommend Samuel Wells.

    • Samuel handled my Wrongful Termination matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Sam was recommended to my by an attorney that I have engaged on behalf of my employer and those to whom we had fiduciary responsiblities, many times. I hold that attorney and his firm in very high regard. His comment was that his well known firm had seen Sam Wells in action and thought well of his expertise and breadth as a client advocate. I concur in that assessment and found in my fairly complex case, Sam was a quick study and ultimately was very effective. My case related to issues where I as an officer in a C-Suite job had been terminated under circumstances where public disclosure of financial facts was at issue, and Sam did a very very good job in a "well contested" case.
