Throughout the entire process, Sam's communication was exceptional – he kept me informed at every step, promptly responding to my emails and calls. What truly sets Sam apart is his unwavering dedication to achieving the best possible outcome for his clients. He meticulously reviewed documents, analyzed the intricacies of my case, and provided me with expert legal advice that proved to be invaluable. His attention to detail and strategic approach were instrumental in resolving my dispute favorably.

Excellent tenant attorney
Sam Cross was an all around amazing attorney, when I desperately needed legal help. He was adamant about making sure he had all the details needed, and works in a very timely manner. Words honestly cannot describe how much I truly appreciated his help, and I know for a fact I would of never been able to walk away on top of my legal dispute if it were not for him. I HIGHLY recommend Sam Cross for anyone needing legal advice or help, especially if you are a tenant with unreasonable landlords, and you need advice asap. Thank you again, Sam!

I have known Sam since he was a child. I have smiled along the way, watching his personal and professional character develop in the manner that his parents, friends, and associates knew to be inevitable. Lawyers sometimes get a bum rap, but not Sam. He gets what he deserves and has earned. Total respect. Integrity? He lives it. Sam is what every lawyer, every human being who seeks to thrive in the public arena aspires to be. Do you remember your dad, your grand mother, whomever, telling you that your word defines you? Sam does. He lives it. He holds it close. Trust him. I do.

Extremely helpful
We unfortunately rented a property from a landlord that we later discovered had a reputation for threatening litigation and attempting to make tenants (and contractors) pay for major repairs that were not their fault. Five separate people told us to hire a lawyer. Through our own dealings with the landlord, we found him to be an aggressive bully. Being busy with our jobs and preparing for a move, we dreaded dealing with the landlord during our move-out process. We wanted to learn our rights before the move-out process and spent a few weeks trying to get in touch with lawyers. We finally found Sam and called him -- he provided a free 30 minute consultation was very helpful. After considering our situation for another day, we decided to hire Sam. It was the best decision that we could have made. Here's why: 1. It was clear that Sam knew his stuff, and he was good at explaining our rights and options to us 2. Sam clearly cares about his clients and their situations; this genuine concern and thoughtfulness was apparent in all of our interactions. 3. He was a great advocate -- the move-out process was far, far easier than it would have been otherwise, and we did not pay for anything that was unreasonable. More important than the money Sam saved us, he saved us a mountain of stress. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Very pleased
to anyone looking for a lawyer Mr. Cross should be at the top of your list he is a very nice and respectable person and does what he says we will do. But best of all he cares a lot about his clients and insured that I was ok form the time I retained him to the time my case was settled. If you hire him just know you have one of the best on your team from the start. I strongly advice you to go with the best.

Great work on timely basis
Sam was retained to assist my mother in a landlord/tenant matter (she is the landlord) which had escalated into an administrative issue with the city in which the property is located, He used his knowledge of the law and his relationship of trust he had developed with the city to assist in resolving the issues then present in a professional and efficient manner. We would not hesitate to use him again should the occasion arise in the future.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Cross handled my divorce case and did an excellent job. This was a very trying and emotional time but Mr. Cross gave me a peace of mind by handing my case with dignity and respect. This was my first marriage and no one plans for divorce going into a marriage but he gave me all the information I needed to keep my mind at ease. I would recommend Sam Cross to anyone facing this difficult time.
