Like most people I found myself hesitant on which attorney I could trust to handle my child visitation case. However, I found that the most recommended attorney was Mr. Sam. I had my consultation and he explained to me really well how the case could turn out and what to expect. He would always keep up to date on what was going on with my case. He acted in a friendly and professional manner. He did really well in working with me, and my Ex's attorney in getting my visitation rights established fairly. Overall, I would like to say that with his help I was able to be reunited with my child once more. As a client, having such a stressful situation being handled by a professional gave me piece of mind. And as a parent, being able to have your child by your side and hearing that it's been handled is one of the greatest feelings in the world. There's no doubt that I will recommend him to anyone who's looking for a great attorney to handle their family law case.

Finding Sam Spagnola changed my life and future, as well as my daughters. I relocated to Greensboro from the Asheville NC area to be nearer to my child. I live a stone's throw away from the Mom but she wouldn't budge on adjusting visitation. She led me around by the nose and used my daughter as the hooked bait of a power struggle, which seems to be the classic tale of single fathers. I needed help and I wanted the best, a quick Google search led me to Mr. Spagnola's doorstep.
He is to the point, business savvy, and extremely educated on NC law. During the court procession he was able to spout off facts and figures like they were the alphabet. He pounced on any weaknesses or wavering stories that the mother presented and made her case look extremely faulty.
I felt protected and cared for throughout the entire process, I have worked with other lawyers and they only seem concerned with what is in your back pocket. Sam genuinely cared about guiding me through the motions and gave me realistic outlooks for everything as it occured, he didn't sugar coat the expectations.
I had to do my due diligence as well, I had lengthy documentation across 4 years of interactions with my ex which helped solidify my position. In the end, the judge settled our case with joint legal and physical custody and I could not be happier with the result.
If you are in the Triad area, Sam Spagnola is the lawyer for you because I can personally guarantee that you do not want him to be on the other side of the bench from you.

If you want the best, choose Sam Spagnola. I hired Sam twice. The first time for my divorce and the second time when, unfortunately, custody issues arose several years later. Sam is reliable and honest. He broke my case down to me in words I could understand and never tried to charge me outrageously for services. His advice is smart and he does exactly what he says he will do. I would definitely use him again if needed.
