Effective Attorney
Sam Robinson is an effective attorney. He helped me achieve all of my goals. Divorce is difficult, but Mr. Robison was personable and patient throughout the whole process.

More than just an attorney!
Sam was wonderful, thorough, and always on top of things. He answered any and all questions we had about both cases he worked for us. During some of the hardest times of our lives he didn't treat us just like clients, but friends/family. We couldn't be more happy with his work and the outcome of our cases. If we ever need an attorney again Sam will be the one we call. We officially claim him as our family attorney!

I have used Sam twice and in each case he was kind and empathetic to me. In court he is very well respected, precise and successful. I would recommended him to anyone needing his help.

I can never thank him enough for the help he gave my family in our time of crisis. He answered my questions and treated our case with utmost importance. I will use his services for all my legal needs from now on.

-Would recommend and hire again if needed.
A friend recommended Mr. Robinson, and I am thankful. I have required his services twice- in a neighboring county in Tennessee and North Georgia. After a comprehensive phone interview we agreed to a thorough and timely consultation at his Chattanooga office. On both accounts Mr. Robinson gave me a very reasonable fee, and upon hiring his services he -immediately- began my defense while I was still present. His patience and expertise was vibrant for both of my cases, as he would aggressively hunt for evidence, not stop or give up especially in court until I was given a very reasonable verdict. I hope to not need legal representation again in my life, but still carry his business card in my wallet. I highly recommend. -J. Chattanooga, TN

Sam is a great and caring attorney
Sam helped me to win physical custody of my son whose mother had not let me see for the first five years of his life. I could tell that my story moved Sam because of his attention to detail in all of our legal documents. Any time I had a question he would always make himself available to me. He treated me not only like a client but also like a friend who needed help. I would definitely recommend.
