I have had the pleasure of practicing law for the past ten years.  Through those years I have seen many, many clients who were in need of help.  I take much pride in helping those people who need it the most.

I handle bankruptcy, disability and personal injury matters. 

When I'm not at my law office, I try to spend as much time as I can with my wife and kids.

Retired
Excellent lawyers. I was having a financial crisis that I knew I couldn't handle. I am retired and living on a budget salary. Most of my debts were behind and I called the firm and Samuel Wright took my case. He was so knowledgeable and took me through the whole process. He is very kind, answered all my questions, was there with me at the creditor' s meeting and now I am getting a new start. My debts are being discharged. I could not have made it this far without the help that I received. If you are looking for a lawyer, call Samuel Wright.

Excellent lawyer with great people skills
My wife and I had credit problems relating to credit cards. Sam sat with us explained our options requested me to come back with particulars. Secong sitting we spent yet another couple of hours mapping out a strategy. Third time we went over reverse mortgage possibilities. Fourth time we put it all together - we are mostly debt free now and happy. Sam is well respected in this community and can count our family as one of his fans.
