    He really listened to my situation and showed me great respect. Because of his experience and knowledge of the law he caused me to be comfortable and have hope right away that I had found someone capable who would help me. He has credibility with other attorneys and the judge. He is very passionate about the legal process and restored my faith in the legal system.

    I was in a bad divorce with custody problems. Mr. English helped take the worry and burden off my shoulders. He and his staff were excellent to respond to any concerns or issues. He is a very good attorney with extensive experience and knowledge. He help guide my mediation to a win-win situation . Without Sam, I would still be fighting for my son who I know have fulltime. My ex-wife had an aggressive attorney and Sam shut him down very quickly in a very professional manner. I would not use anyone else other than Sam. I would recommend him to anyone.

    After many years of incompetent attorneys and thousands of dollars, I found Sam! This man gets the job done! He's been there for me for the past several years, representing me on a child custody case and now a child support case. My case has always been everything but easy and he never gives up! Most of all, he's here for all the right reasons and always has the child's best interest at heart! He has been by my side through all of my breakdowns over this case, all the times I felt like there was no hope and began to lose faith in the justice system all together and the times I just wanted to give up. He is proof that there are attorneys that are in this for the right reasons. I will always be so thankful for everything Sam has done for me, my child and my entire family... Not sure where we would be without him!

    I would not say this easily nor would I give such an endorsement had I not experienced it first-hand. Mr. English is not just a staunch defender and advocate of his clients, he listens and empathizes with them, and has the legal knowledge and experience to make an intelligent plan and strategy. He is looking to win, but he also understands the best-interests of all involved and especially takes what is in the best interests of the children into account. I have known Sam since 2003. I know most divorces are difficult and can be messy, especially with kids involved, but my case turned out to be particularly unusual and complicated. With Sam as my counsel, I felt I had an advocate and also a shoulder to lean on in some very dark times. He didn't always tell me what I wanted to hear, but he always told me what I needed to hear and was honest and never misled me over what turned out to be over a 12 year journey. He is passionate about standing up for the rights of his clients. He will go toe-to-toe with the best of them and be your voice in the emotional and intimidating legal world of the Courts and Attorneys. He is also not afraid to tackle those less popular cases, such as mine, where I was the Father facing the bias of the maternal versus paternal roles. He brought logic and civility back to a very, at times, seemingly never-ending irrational process. Thank you, Sam. I know you gave a piece of yourself through all of this. For those considering hiring him, you will not be disappointed if you choose Sam and he will restore your faith in the legal process. Ultimately, justice will be served with this charismatic, experienced and knowledgeable Attorney. I can't say enough good things about him...

    I hired Mr. English right after my daughter was born he was honest with me up front that my case might take awhile but he helped me from day 1, even though DCS was throwing ever hurtle in my way. My wife and I now have full legal and physical custody of her. Without Mr. English we might still be jumping through hoops just to see her.

  • Outstanding Attorney

    Mr. English is simply outstanding!!! Sam and his team are highly competent, professional, effective and compassionate!!!! Going into our first meeting, I was nervous and apprehensive, but within a few minutes, Sam had me feeling calm and confident that I had made the right choice!!! Kandice is nothing short of an angel!!! The many times I would call concerned with the games my ex would try to play, she would always settle my nerves and frustrations with her kind voice!!!! Sam and his team are extremely busy, that’s what happens when you are in high demand!!! Going through this, I wanted it over and done quickly, but there is a process to all of this, so if you do choose Sam and his team, and I highly recommend that you do, just know that he has your back at every turn!!!! The results were above and beyond my expectations!!!!!

  • A Lawyer That Cares...

    Over the past several years, Sam English has represented me in my child custody and child support case. He has been easy to work with and he has always kept the best interest of my children first and foremost. My case has not been an easy one. We have been in and out of court at least 2 to 3 times a year for these past several years. He has listened to me cry, scream, and fuss on multiple occasions with great patience. He has encouraged me when I didn't think that we were ever going to get through this. I say "we" because Sam also went through the plethora of emotions that this case brought forth. His support enabled me to handle the stress with grace and dignity even when I felt like lashing out for the wrongs that were put on my children. He fights with all his might in court and is ruthless when the necessity to be is present. His hard work has helped me hold my ex husband financially responsible for his part in raising these kids even though he has opted not to be a part of their lives. I really don't know if I could ever repay him for all he has done for me and mine. I will be eternally grateful. He is an amazing lawyer!

    I would recommend Sam English if you are going through a custody fight. I made a mistake and had another lawyer and the other lawyer promised me that I would get plenty of time with my daughter and when it came to the mediation the lawyer didn't do his job and said that I need to sign because I would not get anymore time with my Child. I ended up with a few days a month and then I went to Sam for a second opinion and Sam could not believe what happen and he is fixing my case and now I get to see my daughter all the time. Take it from me and go see Sam English before you go see another lawyer even if some recommends another lawyer it will be a mistake if you don't go with Sam English trust me, if it wasn't for him I would never get to see my daughter.
