I`m not a US resident but used to be in US several times. Since my last visit I had an issue in US I needed attorney help to deal with. I made a quick email research around several attorney offices and found that Mr Samdperil was the quickest one to respond. More over finally it was discovered that his fee was the most adequate and acceptable. While cooperation with Mr Samdperil I found him very professional, constructive and positive. He helped me in understanding all the peculiarities even before we signed off the contract. He also kept me informed on all the stages of the process. I very much appreciate his help and definitely would advise to work with him if you need honest and reliable partner in US. Thank you very much Mr Samdperil and I wish you the best Clients and wins in the court.

I want to take this time out and recommend Richard Samdperil. I hired Richard a few months ago for a case in Portsmouth, NH. My case was a bit tricky, as it was a few years old and had an immigration component to it. Richard was very professional and diligent and worked with my immigration lawyer to craft the best strategy. Once we had all the documentation lined up, Richard went out and got the best deal possible with the prosecutor. The day of my court appearance Richard sat me down and explained what will happen and where some issues might arise. The court appearance itself went smooth, as both the judge and prosecutor were satisfied with our answers. I was out in 15 mins. Afterwards Richard thoroughly explained the conditions of my punishment. In summary, Richard navigated me thru an unpleasant experience with absolute professionalism and was able to provide the best outcome possible for me. And as a bonus, he is very pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend Richard Samdperil.

Having never had to hire a lawyer before, I had no idea who to call. My daughter was in trouble and I needed help. I found Samdperil & Welsh online and decided to call. I was put right through to Attorney Samdperil who spent at least a half hour listening to my problem and gave me free legal advice. He helped me understand the charges and the law. He made no promises and was completely forthright as to what the possible outcomes would/could be. Attorney Samdperil was professional and non-judgemental. He took our case and worked hard from beginning to end. His communication through this whole ordeal was excellent. He was present in court and spent time with us before and after the proceeding to make sure we understood everything. The outcome was the best we could have asked for. I am certain had we not hired Attorney Samdperil things would have turned out much differently.

I am writing to endorse Richard Samdperil. As a former prosecutor, I have had many cases against Attorney Samdperil. He is very intelligent and is a fierce competitor in the courtroom. He is well versed in New Hampshire case law and in the Rules of Evidence. His clients surely will benefit from his trial skills, knowledge of the law, and good reputation in the legal community.

I endorse this lawyer. Richard is one of the most skilled trial lawyers I have seen. His dedication to his clients is also unparalleled. If I were in trouble, I would use my one phone call to retain Richard Samdperil.
