Ms. Dammer was a great attorney who really helped me through a very tough time. Her staff was extremely friendly and always got back to me in a timely fashion (not the same as I have experienced with other attorneys who seemed to treat me like I wasn't an "important client"). She was not afraid to take my case and to see it through to the end even though things got pretty difficult in court. I would highly recommend her to anyone struggling with the same kind of tough situation as I was.

I met with Samantha when I was completely stressed out about my bills and my apartment lease - she read all of my bills, documents, taxes etc. in ONE day and got back with me.
I highly recommend her!!!

Attorney Dammer was contacted to support our efforts to get a contractor to perform its duties. She did not contact us for a couple of days after our initial phone inquiry and did not appear to want a phone conversation after responding via email.
We sent the requested documents for her review, which we had to inquire about after a few days. She initially told us to work out our needs with the contractor until I informed her about the merit of bringing in an attorney. She agreed to contact the company.
Days later I contacted her by email for an update. She did not respond. I called her office and still no response after leaving a message with her answering service. I finally got the message that she was not going to move further with my request.
I found a great attorney since then who did not have Samantha's ratings I had viewed on this site, but is a five star performer comparatively. I cannot give a good review to Samantha as she has wasted our time, which always translates into money.
