Highly recommended
I had a simple matter that I needed help with despite being a lawyer myself. Sam Lennon and her paralegal Hannah are knowledgeable, responsive, efficient ... everything you want from your legal team.

Highly recommend Samantha
Samantha represented me in my divorce and also helped me adopt my stepdaughter. She was fantastic throughout as was her staff. The settlement and divorce was amicable, equitable and rapidly concluded. The adoption was also very easy. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Expert and Professional Divorce Attorney
I would give Samantha and Hannah 10 stars if I could! They were extremely professional and prepared. Samantha responded promptly to all of my questions and concerns, and she gave me options for resolution with likelihood of success assessments. My divorce was not complicated, but it did involve some interesting shenanigans from opposing counsel that took skill to navigate. I am an attorney, and I know good lawyering when I see it. I hope I never have to hire Samantha again, but I recommend her highly if you find yourself needing good counsel in a divorce.

BEST Divorce Attorney !
I can not imagine having anyone other than Samantha Lennon to have represented me in my divorce. She is incredibly sharp, genuine, responsive, dependable, direct, and kind. Having her handle my case made me feel safe and supported. I was always up to date on status changes and the best next steps. She's not someone who drags things out as she gets things done, and she gets it right! (I can't emphasize enough on how amazing her communication is!) The process was as smooth as possible. Divorce is a difficult, and uncomfortable, enough life change, but it was an absolute pleasure to work with Samantha Lennon (and Hannah Garcia) through it. I appreciate them both immensely. If you are ever in need of representation, Samantha Lennon is the absolute BEST!

Run, dont walk, to Attorney Samantha Lennon!
This is a review of LGS Family Law firm, where I had the pleasure of working with Attorney Samantha Lennon for my divorce case. I am happy to say that her strong expertise, extensive experience, and high ethical standards helped me achieve the best possible outcome. My family and I felt at a disadvantage going into the process because we had no prior knowledge of divorce proceedings, and my ex-spouse is a lawyer. However, Samantha and her paralegal, Hannah Garcia, were exceptional in their communication and always ensured that our questions and concerns were addressed in a timely, respectful, and compassionate manner. Throughout the process, they kept costs down, were always available to discuss the case, and outsmarted my ex-spouse and his legal team at several turns. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with their services and grateful for their guidance during a challenging time in my life. If you are new to the divorce process, I strongly recommend avoiding divorce attorneys who are unresponsive, slow to respond, difficult to get in touch with, or who behave in a nonchalant, rude, or dismissive manner. Be cautious of those attorneys who make hard sales pitches and charge exorbitant fees, such as a flat fee of $750 for an initial draft of a petition for divorce. You don't have to settle for this type of representation! For anyone seeking the best legal advice, attention to their case, exceptional communication, conscientious attorney's fees, and a positive outcome, I highly recommend working with Samantha Lennon for all family law needs.

The Best Divorce Attorney in town
No one ever said that they enjoyed their divorce. But some have felt that it went as well as humanly possible. I definitely fall into the latter, and I know confidently that my attorney is solely responsible for stewarding the process out of the mire into a more than acceptable resolution. Ms Samantha Lennon met me when I was in a state of crisis and over the course of the divorce not only negotiated equitable terms but possibly more importantly reminded me what it meant to weather a storm with grace, inner strength, and reason. In my case I had never gone through a divorce. I was bewildered and fearful of the unknown. Ms Lennon’s client relationship style is remarkable. She is both frank and compassionate and steadfast in her goal to achieve optimal results for her client. This is not my style for the record which left me quite curious in the beginning. Her rationalism and calm eventually won me over and convinced me was the best strategy for the desired outcome. Simply put I have immense respect and admiration for Ms Lennon’s methodology. I felt secure in her hands and grateful for her results. It’s a big decision choosing your divorce attorney. Being represented by Ms Lennon in my divorce was one of the best decisions I’ve made.

Highly Recommend Samantha
I recommend, without reservation, retaining Samantha Lennon as your lawyer. She is professional, knowledgeable, and a great ally during challenging times. She always replied quickly to me and made herself available for calls when I needed to speak with her. Working with Samantha and her team was very easy. You can trust that you're in good, capable hands with her, which is comforting during times that you need a lawyer.

Highly recommend Samantha
Samantha was incredible in working with me related to a nuptial agreement. She was thorough in her review of the legal documents, as well as explained in layman's terms the risks and benefits of different ways to structure the document. I am extremely grateful for her assistance and would highly recommend for anyone looking for counsel related to pre- or post-nuptial agreements.

Professional and Timely
Samantha and Hannah were an amazing team! It was a difficult time for our family and they made this process go so easily. The guidance and recommendations were so helpful in navigating all that is required in the process of a Divorce. They were able to help keep us within our budget, given that our process was not complicated but without there help it may have been more. The response time is also something to give them a shout out about. Whenever I had a question, there timely responses were invaluable. Our process us finalized within a 60 day window, which was amazing, given that I had originally hired another firm that took over a month after paying retainers to even respond to our case. I recommend Samantha and Hannah to anyone that is going through a divorce as they will make the process so easy. Thank you again!

Cream of the crop!
When it comes to attorneys, this was not my first rodeo. In my opinion, they don't come any better than Samantha Lennon. She is professional, knowledgeable, efficient, compassionate, and sharp as a tack. And she LISTENS! Samantha also responds to your questions, suggestions, and concerns so swiftly, you will be amazed. I give her 10's across the board. I highly recommend her. One more thing, her paralegal assistant is top of the line.

Fierce Defender of Justice
Advocate, supporter, fierce defender, justice seeker and friend. These words barely scratch the surface in describing the many positive attributes of Samantha Lennon. I found Samantha after three years of a fighting a brutally painful and stressful divorce. At the time I naively thought we were finally ready to mediate and settle out of court. I read many reviews and recommendations about Samantha's ability to settle divorce cases and was hopeful she would be able to help close out this chapter of my life. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned through no fault of hers. When things took a turn, so did Samantha's demeanor. To say she fought FIERCELY for me and my son is an understatement. She came in to a case that had been so poorly managed and yet was still fully invested and fought for me like no one else had. She is VERY responsive day or night and even on weekends. She was also very cost conscious, as if it were her own money being spent. I wish I had her in my corner from the beginning. The confidence and validation she helped me find is something I will never forget and am truly grateful for. I cannot recommend Samantha enough. If you find yourself needing a divorce attorney, you will not regret having her on your team.

Legitimation and child support
I really don’t know where to begin, I'm so grateful for Samantha! She was super helpful throughout my whole legitimation and child support process and walked me through every step efficiently, and in a timely manner. She listened to what I needed and knew exactly what else to ask for on me and my girls behalf. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of an excellent family lawyer!!!

Samantha represented me in my recent divorce and she was fabulous! After our initial consultation she had already put me at ease and had given me great, concrete legal advice as she took on my case. She was incredibly responsive throughout the entire process and helped me get the settlement outcome I wanted, as quickly as possible. Samantha was as professional, responsive, reasonable, and honest as anyone I have worked with. I would highly recommend her!

Highly recommend
Family law is a special calling, especially for those that are honest and care about what's best for you and your children. Samantha has morals and does what's right. Samantha helped me when I was served, out of the blue, over custody of my son. Samantha was honest about what my options were, and what we could and couldn't do in my specific situation. She guided me every step of the way, took my calls when I was stressed, and was a friend in a difficult time. I am someone that likes to know as much as I can (and luckily, I don't know a lot about legal jargon), so she dealt with my amateur questions so I could better understand what was happening. No one ever wants to deal with these things, but Samantha was available and ready whenever I needed her, to help in all of the crazy things that were thrown at us. She made me feel like I was her only client (which is obviously not true)! I hope you never need Samantha, but if you do, she's the best!
