Outstanding
Samantha handled my divorce 2 years ago. On top of being an outstanding attorney, she was supportive, understanding, patient, and knew when to push me and when to "wrangle me in". She is truly an expert in Divorce and Separation and everything that falls under that umbrella. I have referred her to countless friends and acquaintances, many of which left their attorneys to find the successful outcomes with Samantha that they were not getting to otherwise. She is very resourceful and connected with others that help with the transition into divorce and being a single parent as well. If I had to do it over again (which I hope to never have to), I would not hesitate even for a remote second to hire her again.

A superb attorney!
Samantha represented me in a child support matter. She is a smart and knowledgeable attorney and always the consummate professional! She kept me informed and was very responsive at all times. When emotions would get the best of me, Samantha could bring me back to center and focused on what was important. I highly recommend Samantha...she is a wonderful human being and superb attorney.

Excellent
Samantha managed my divorce and was excellent. I would recommend her to any woman (or man). Samantha explained matters clearly, was factual, timely, punctual, provided excellent advice and was very kind. I found Samantha easy to talk to and she was happy to flex her communication to my schedule; eg e mail or calls. She was also prepared to re-visit matters with me later where I thought I had clearly understood at the time but had follow up questions on reflection. She wanted me to be clear and knowledgeable. I would not have emerged from the situation without her expert advice. I am eternally grateful to this smart knowledgeable lawyer. And her team who were also excellent.
