I first hired Mr. English in 2008 for a divorce, and I have retained him several times to handle various issues with my ex since my divorce. The most important thing to me was the custody of my children and Mr. English has ALWAYS taken care of any and all matters that come up. My advice is to get an attorney that not only knows the law but treats you like a person that he truly wants to help. Mr. English has always done that. No one wants to go through a divorce but if you have to there is no one better. I have referred a number of my friends to him and they all have been as pleased with the end result as I have been. If you are starting the divorce process, you should at least have a consultation with Mr. English. It is important to get someone you can work with because the legal issues don't always stop with signing of the divorce papers, especially if you have children involved. Most people have trouble trusting attorneys, I certainly did, but Mr. English is an attorney you can trust. He is a very successful attorney therefore an extremely busy attorney. Divorce is a long process and Sam does a good job of making sure the cases that require immediate attention are taken care of, so correspondence didn't always come as quickly as I liked at first but when I learned to trust him I could relax and let him handle things. That is what he has always done.......handled EVERYTHING on the time table that it needed to be handled, even if it wasn't as quickly as I would have liked. If you are starting this process please know that it is a long one and the hardest thing for me was to wait. When I learned to trust Mr. English waiting stopped being so hard because I KNOW that he has it covered!

Sam English and his staff were truly wonderful to me. Sam came highly recommended. After 29 years of marriage I was devastated and emotionally drained. On our first meeting, I felt so comfortable with him and I felt that he & his staff were very professional & they took care of me through the whole painful process. Sam is a very knowledgable and tough attorney.
After one mediation my case was settled and I was extremely pleased with the outcome. I am so thankful that I retained the English Law firm. Sam & his staff were outstanding and I recommend him highly.

Sam and his staff worked on my divorce with incredible professionalism, patience and expertise. I was very impressed by how Sam and Vanessa (associate) were able to "predict" my ex-husband's and his attorney's next moves and motives. He made me feel so comfortable on the first, emotional visit when I met him for a consultation. I knew he was the right lawyer for me when he was able to tell me immediately what was ahead for me with this divorce. He knew I was very upset about the circumstances concerning the divorce and put me at great ease. I realized when we were in Mediation how valuable Sam's counsel was for my particular case. He was thorough to protect me and my assets. His staff is compassionate, very knowledgeable and trustworthy. I recommend his practice with great confidence and without hesitation.

We hired Sam in a child support case, he over exceeded our expectations. He knows the laws from every aspect and it shows in the courtroom. He is very honest upfront and extremely personable. I have refered him to several other people and they have had the same outcome.

Sam English and Vanessa help put my family back together. My daughter had custody issues fighting for her son. These attorney's provided hope as well as legal expertise. I will forever be grateful for their representation for my daughter.

Expensive but worth it. I switched lawyers in the middle of my divorce. Well worth the money in my case.

I hired Mr. English after two years of nothing in my case. He was kind, knowledgable and most respectful. Within two weeks of taking on my case, my Husband's attorney came to us wanting to settle. I settled the case for much more than I ever dreamed and my husband signed over our house to me which had been hard fought for two years. I'm very grateful for having found Sam. He made no promises that went unfulfilled.

Sam is an amazing attorney! Our case was one that started when my little girl was still in her mothers womb and lasted over 3 years. Sam was always attentive to our needs and sensitive to the nature of our case. Sam accomplished the impossible........winning custody of a child with Down Syndrome for the father is an incredible testimony of Sam and the kind of attorney he is! We will forever be grateful to Sam and his dedication to our case!

I retained Sam English after being represented by another attorney in my divorce. We had went to 2 mediations and nothing but games. Mr. English was hired and the next mediation we settled and my husband went from 40% of the marital estate to over 60% and alimony increased over 3 times from the previous mediation. I was shocked but evidentially his name recognition go to my husband.
