I Highly recommend Christiana Samuels as a Family Law Attorney. I spent several months in a stressful custody and visitation battle with my ex-wife over my Daughter. Christiana represented me in my custody and visitation case. I want to thank Christina for everything she did for me and helping me in the most difficult time of my life. Thanks for giving me the right advise all the time and helping me make the right dicisions in a stressful situations and most of all thanks for always being there for me. I really appreciate your hard work and the help that you provided me during my case. You know how to get the job done. Thank you for your compassion, determination and dedication to my case. Family court can be overwhelming but you made sure I was informed and felt comfortable each step of the way. My custody and visitation was on the line. You are ble to think on your feet. I cannot say enough good things about Christiana Samuels and stronly recommend her unconditionally to anyone who needs a fantastic family law attorney. Christiana is the reason I have my Daughter back. I know I'm in good hands now and in the future with Christiana representing me as my Family Law Attorney.
I came to Ms. Samuels, through a reccomendation, distraught with a lack of understanding of how to even begin the divorce process. After a quick meeting, I knew that she's the lawyer for me. Knowledgeable, understanding and quick to pick up on what needed to be done.
As for the paperwork, I was guided through it quickly, as Ms. Samuels had requested for me to bring various documents: tax records, shared property, etc. Paperwork was signed and filed rapidly. She was even readily available for the most mundane of questions- "do I need to list the Ikea dresser..." Often times, items I had overlooked, she brought to my attention and kept me on track with the process.
Ultimately, divorce sucks and with Ms. Samuels calm representation, I'd do it all over again (ok, not really, but you get what I mean ;)
A few months ago, I needed to find a lawyer to help me with my upcoming divorce. Ms. Samuels was recommended to me as someone who was hardworking and knowledgeable about that area of law.
My experience with Ms. Samuels confirmed her expertise in those types of proceedings. She was extremely helpful and professional. Never having been divorced, I originally was nervous about the process and worried lawyers would only complicate things. On the contrary, getting Ms. Samuels on my team was instrumental in having the divorce go smoothly. She advised me of my rights and clearly explained what the laws were in a way that was easy to understand. She personally guided me through forms that needed to be filled out and provided advice and guidance on which path she thought would be most beneficial- all while taking into account my own feelings and preferences. That is to say, if you are looking for a fierce advocate that will fight for you, she will do that, but also if you are looking for someone that will help lead you and your former spouse through the process amicably, she can do that as well.
Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the services of Ms. Samuels and would recommend her to anyone that needs assistance navigating the difficult waters of divorce proceedings. There is no reason to go it alone when you can hire an affordable hand to walk you through it simply and easily.
