Sam Brown is the most knowledgeable and professional attorney I know. He is honest, trustworthy and treated me with the utmost dignity and respect. With this being the most difficult time of my life, Sam was more than just an attorney, he was my ally and support system. He guided through every step of the process. I was going through a very difficult divorce after 21 years of marriage and Sam dedicated both his personal and professional time to my case. Sam was always just a phone call away, whether it was to talk me through a difficult decision or just to listen. Even at my lowest when I felt that there was no hope, Sam provided the counsel, guidance, support and the confidence I needed to help me get through all ( and there were many ) of the rough patches.
Understanding my situation with my ex and the lack of any monetary support, Sam tried to save me money whenever he could by delegating work to appropriate associates and trying to avoid costs that were unnecessary. I can’t thank Sam and his practice enough for everything from divorce proceedings, emotional support, mental support and the empathy and compassion that is rare in this day. Thank you, Sam.

Sam and his firm are extremely professional, competent and responsive. With this being the most difficult time in my life, Sam provided a great deal of compassion balanced by reason. He has a comforting sense of humor as well as an innate ability to counsel both legally and emotionally. I always finished my meetings or phone conversations in a better state of mind than when I entered. My divorce was complex due to a complicated business and multiple assets. Sam's knowledge and resources allowed him to build a strong case for me as well as educate me in the process. He also represented me in my child custody case. Sam continues to work diligently with me through the divorce and custody appeals brought forth by my ex-husband. His staff was and continues to be wonderful as is his team of lawyers who also participated in and continue to participate my case. The communication is second to none. I always receive quick responses to all emails and voicemails and receive copies of all necessary documents. Sam is exceptional in the courtroom, quite honestly a master in his field. Yes, he is expensive but worth every penny, in my book, considering what I could have lost because I didn't know any better. I would also like to add that Sam is not one of those lawyers out to take your money. He tries to save for you where he can by delegating to his associates and tries to work real hard to settle cases before they get to court. I am absolutely grateful that Sam Brown was put in my path 2 years ago not only for my sake but for the sake of my three children. He continues to navigate this crazy course for me with patience, expertise, and resolve. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Sam represented me in a very contentious divorce; there were a lot of information and considerations for him to digest; he was able to sort through it and put together a legal strategy and an in-court narrative that was easy to digest. We were also dealing with some very complex assets and Sam was able to reduce it down to the relevant. During the long years leading up to the trial, Sam was supportive yet realistic. I always felt that he has my best interest in mind and is my absolute advocate; but most importantly, at the end of the day, Sam is EFFECTIVE. I am very happy with the outcome of the trial and I cannot be happier than I am with Sam’s representation.
Marietta Warren, Child custody Attorney
Sam Brown is an exceptional advocate and one of the most well respected domestic attorney's in the State. I have been lucky enough to begin my career in domestic practice working with Sam. His trial presence and insight on everything from complex domestic cases to city and county administrative actions to business matters is unmatched.
Brian Lyman, Litigation Attorney
Sam Brown is an unparalleled advocate for his clients, overall. In particular, I've had the privilege of watching him practice and in assisting him in many matters involving local and administrative law, here in Anne Arundel County and Annapolis. His representation of clients in the local administrative agencies, hearings and boards of appeal is savvy and precisely calculated to maximize results for his clients.
