    • I do not recommend Samuel Wasserson.
    • I hired Samuel more than 3 years ago.
    • Samuel handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Wasserson seemed very positive during our initial consultation. However, after giving him a rather hefty retainer, (his fees are hefty as well), things went down hill fast. He just didn't seem to care much for my situation, and seemed put off whenever I called him. He rarely called me regarding the status of things. I was getting screwed on my alimony, my child support and custody, so, after nearly a year of enduring such torment, I made the difficult decision to go with a different attorney. It was the best decision of my life. The new attorney was amazing. I was divorced within 6 months, and he got me a reasonable settlement on all issues.

  2. He has no clue what he is doing

    • I do not recommend Samuel Wasserson.

    When I contacted him first he told me the case was no big deal. A pending divorce to be finalized. Once he received his retainer check he was increasingly unresponsive. He filed some paperwork that was rejected by the court. I never even was informed. I only learned about it by calling the court myself. How could someone like this make a living in his profession is beyond me. Stay clear from this guy.

  3. We avoided a war.

    Mr. Wasserson advised that he would try to handle this to keep it from getting nasty. When the other side started acting snippy in Court, my lawyer came down on them pretty heavy. After that, we were able to work things out by settling.

  4. We held down the cost

    • I recommend Samuel Wasserson.
    • I hired Samuel more than 3 years ago.
    • Samuel handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Our matter started out with a great deal of bitterness and hostility,but Sam's steady hand showed that we'd be better served by working together and shelving our egos. As a result, the costs involved were greatly reduced and our matter moved along smoothly without a lot of unnecessary bitterness.

    Sam helped my family with a comprehensive estate plan that accounted for all contingencies. Sam thought of things that we never would have. He took the time to get to know us and understand our needs. Thanks for a great job Sam!
