I needed advise and representation on lowering an alimony. He advised and did the write up. Alimony was lowered and he did a great job.

Sam really made a difficult situation extremely easy. I made a call just to get basic information, and the next thing I know we had already finished the paperwork. I highly recommend his service.

Best Attorney in Etowah Co.
Earlier this year, I found myself in need of a divorce attorney when my ex petitioned to modify our final judgment. I no longer lived in Alabama and was unsure of where to turn for legal advice. After consulting with Mr. Sam Bone, it was clear that he had a deep understanding of law and how it applied to my particular situation. Many attorneys will promise the moon, without being able to deliver a star. Sam will be honest about your case, talk with you about the possibilities, and develop a plan to protect your best interests. Phone calls/emails are answered promptly and you are made aware of appointments and court actions. Even though my case was regular family law issues, it was treated as a priority. When emotions run high and people play dirty, you need an attorney that will keep you focused. It was nothing short of a blessing to have Sam’s counsel during this time. Sam will listen and use what will benefit your case most, helping you to make the best decisions. Through my experience, I learned that Sam is wise beyond his years and holds a unique combination of qualities that make him an excellent attorney. He is a younger lawyer in comparison to many of the veterans in the area, but his expertise speaks through shrewd discernment, both in and outside the courtroom. In retrospect, I know that employing a professional, well-versed attorney who gave honest legal advice was a valuable asset to me. My case only involved family law, but I would recommend Sam Bone in every area that he practices. My children and I are thankful for the Bone Law Firm.

Great divorce, custody lawyer
Sam is a great lawyer.. he helped me a lot in my case. Got me my kids quicker than most cases (less than 6 months). Handled my divorce and got me a very favorable ruling.

Excellent Representation
I was impressed with Sam in several ways but the following are the ones that still remain in my mind after a year has passed. 1. Availability - Needed to see a lawyer pretty quickly and Sam made himself available and continued to be accessible throughout my legal process. He was always able to answer my questions even when I may not have liked the answer. 2. Compassionate - When you have to obtain a lawyer it is usually during a particularly low period in ones life. However, Sam was a good listener and understood my predicament as we proceeded through my court case. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone who may need legal representation.

Best Attorney
As a mother I have the right to have a custody of my child and there were no reasons why I can not. I hired Sam to help me gain a custody of my daughter. He was a good listener and did everything he could to get what was the best for my daughter. I'm glad I hired him and I will hire him again if I ever seek other custody case again in near future. Thank you Sam for all you did on my case!
