I hired Samantha to represent my fiance' for a probation violation. He had 7.5 years of suspended time over his head and calling around to different lawyers I was assured he would get all that time. I called Samantha and she said she would do her best to see that he got as little time as possible and that she did! This was his 2nd violation infront of one of the toughest judges and Samantha pulled through. He only had to serve 45 days! She went the extra mile to see this turned out as best as possible. I am very happy and I hope I don't ever need a lawyer again but if I did I would use her and recommend her to anyone looking for a good lawyer. She is smart, responsive, goes the extra mile and knows what she is talking about.

Ms. Van Scoik is very experienced, in a wide range of areas, and has a great relationship with area attorneys and judges. She worked wonders on a traffic matter I did not believe anything could be done about. She is also very responsive and professional. Ms. Van Scoik is worth every penny because it pays off. I highly recommend her - she will forever have my business.

Let me start by saying that this was my first experience with this type of legal action. Upon meeting Samantha, I immediately felt her compassion for our situation and really appreciated how she related to us on both a personal and professional level. She immediately put us at ease with her caring attitude and demeanor. She is very knowledgeable on the legal process and associated laws, and is extremely responsive to any phone calls or requests for information. If she didn’t know an answer immediately, she researched and provided an explanation back to us. She thoroughly explained the process, the options, and the long and short term repercussions of the options. I trust and respect Sam’s opinion and would highly recommend her to anyone in need of an attorney.
