Pratcher Krayer: Advocates for Justice, Partners in Resolution
My husband and I had the privilege of working with Samuel D. Pratcher, III, Esq. and his outstanding paralegal Courtney Coppock at Pratcher Krayer, and we couldn't be more impressed with their professionalism, dedication, and expertise. From the moment we reached out for assistance with my husband's injury case, Attorney Pratcher and Ms. Coppock were attentive, compassionate, and committed to achieving the best possible outcome for us. Throughout the entire process, they kept us informed, answered all of our questions promptly, and provided clear guidance every step of the way. Their attention to detail and thorough understanding of the legal intricacies involved in our case gave us confidence and peace of mind during what could have been a very stressful time. Thanks to their hard work and dedication, our matter was resolved efficiently and favorably. We are immensely grateful for their efforts and would highly recommend Samuel D. Pratcher, III, Esq. - Pratcher Krayer LLC to anyone in need of legal assistance. Their professionalism, expertise, and genuine care for their clients truly set them apart.

Client
March of 2021, I was the passenger of a two vehicle car accident. I was nervous, mad, sad, confused, and scared knowing that I literally almost lost my life. From the moment of the accident to the ending of the settlement, Sam Pratcher was there and cover every step of the way. This was my first ever car crash and Sam made sure that I didn’t have to worry about ANYTHING! Even walking into the office, Nicole, Jenny, Miguelina, and Kim make sure you are never feel alone or lost. They make you feel like family the whole time. If you ever want to know what peace feels like again, CALL SAM AND NICK! I PROMISE YOU, you will not disappointed!

Wonderful Since the Start!
I got into my first car accident in 2022 where the other driver was at fault and we reached settlement in 1.5 years. From the beginning I was explained about the general process from filing claims to getting proper medical treatment to reaching settlement. I greatly value effective communication and having my questions answered. There was constant communication via email and phone since the start and if I had any questions they were answered clearly without making me feel dumb for asking. Although it took a while before the end, I never felt forgotten about or had to chase for an answer. Highly recommend beyond words!

Magnificent Attorney
I was injured on the job and their insurance company tried to give me some problems. I call Sam and explained to him how I was injured and he didn't hesitate to accept my case. After 2 years, he got me what I deserved.

My experience with Mr. Sam Pratcher and Susan Schneese has been nothing short of exceptional! They went above and beyond my needs. After leaving a horrible law firm, and hiring Pratcher/Krayer, my case was handled and I had no worries. Thank you so much Sam Pratcher and associates!

Slip and Fall
Recently had a Slip and Fall incident and was referred to Attorney Pratcher. The entire process was seamless. Being a Veteran, his staff was knowledgeable and highly sensitive to dealing with the issues that at times are associated with interacting with Veterans. He resolved and settled in a timely manner. I have referred my neighbor for services. Truly understand why they are so highly rated.

Attorney Samuel D Pratcher
Attorney Pratcher is very professional, respectful, kind and helpful. He takes the time to explain the procedure of the case that he might consider. I am so grateful that he has settled many cases on my behalf with grace and knowledge. I would not go to any other person regarding my professional needs for an attorney. He is absolutely an asset to Delaware.

Thank you Attorney Pratcher Krayer!
a minute ago NEW I was hesitant about finding an Attorney because I have never had to work with an Attorney before, but I really had nothing to worry about working with Attorney Pratcher Krayer and everyone in his office. From my first phone call, all the way to settlement, they worked to make sure I had no stresses. Every detail from appointments, to bills, to questions I had were answered and taken care of within 24 hours or at least scheduled for an answer. Pratcher Krayer fought for me for everything I deserved and more! Although I never want to need an Attorney again (accidents hurt), if I did need one, I would never even hesitate to work with him again! Thank you to him and Courtney for working together to make this process flawless!

Potter
Upon experiencing a legal situation that was not only stressful, but complicated and confusing- I sought a consultation with the Pratcher Krayer Law Firm. I received an immediate response to my inquiry, which was followed up by contact from the firm to schedule a consultation. After consulting with Attorney Samuel D. Pratcher III, I selected this firm to handle my case. Attorney Pratcher displayed a high level of legal expertise, communication skills, and professional judgment which allowed me to calmly focus on personal recovery and healing. I was well informed throughout the entire process, and all correspondence between myself and the firm was processed in a timely manner. My expectations regarding competent representation were not only met but exceeded as Attorney Pratcher persevered and fought to obtain the best outcome for myself and my family.

My experience working with Sam and his office staff was very calm. They were always professional and friendly. He explained to me the ins and outs of my case from the beginning and his paralegals kept me informed throughout the process and answered my questions satisfactorily. I would more than likely recommend him if someone were in need of his professional services. Thank you to Sam and staff for a job well done.

Great Lawyer
Office always kept me updated. If I forgot to update them after one of my doctor appointments, they would remember to call me for an update. Mr Pratcher let me know when the first offer from the insurance company came in and told me he could get me a better offer, which he did. I have already recommended him to other people.

Excellent service
I had a great experience with Sam. He was thorough in explaining their processes after my accident and quickly connected me with a great doctor who was very close to my local address for treatment. The process was fairly seamless. The firm handled everything I needed from start to settlement. I would highly suggest Sam if you are seeking an accident lawyer.
