Accident injury case
Initially I had hired another Accident Attorneys firm in Cincinnati but cancelled the contract within weeks due to their poor performance. I contacted Sam Warden through a referral. Sam met me within 45 minutes from the time of the call. He spent over an hour with me going through all the details of the accident, my injury and everything else pertaining to the legalities of such cases. I feel blessed and grateful for having had Sam as part of the process. He was at all times ready to explain the process and kept me update as the case progressed. I have no hesitation in recommending Sam Warden to anyone in need of an Accident/Injury attorney.

He's awesome!
Had a diminished value claim, I didn't have to do anything. I told Sam what I would settle for, they came up very short on the offer so Sam filed to take them to court and miracles of miracles, they settled! Thanks Sam

Diminished Value Claim
My new car was only 6 months old when someone hit it. I searched for months to figure out how to recoup my loss of value, but didn't have much luck until I came across Sam's name on LinkedIn. He brought clarity to our situation, and with the exception of completing a little bit of paperwork and gathering documents, he and his team took care of everything else. I've already recommended him to one of my coworkers, and I highly recommend him to anyone that needs an advocate for their diminished value claim.

Awesome attorney, great practice!
Sam helped me with my SSDI claim. He was instrumental with getting my claim approved without a gearing. He demonstrates professionalism and is empathetic to your needs.

Diminished Value Settlement
Mr. Warden was able to deal with the insurance company and get much more than I could on my own. Actually filing the lawsuit seemed to be the only way to get a reasonable settlement considered. Mr. Warden took care of everything and even came to me for the initial consultation. Overall the experience was very good.

Great representation!
I worked with Sam on a car diminishing value and injury case. Don't be surprised if the case takes a while but it's going to be worth it in the end. My case took about 10-12 months, however, Sam resolved it successfully. He was able to negotiate a better deal with the insurance company than I would have ever done myself. I'm really glad that my appraiser recommended Mr. Warden to me from the start. Thank you Sam for all your help!

Diminished Value
Sam was prompt, thorough, courteous and the consummate professional. I have a family attorney that I've used for other legal issues, but have never been in a diminished value suit before. I'm extremely glad we found Sam. He went above and beyond in every single aspect of our case. I don't know if I've ever been happier with professional legal service than I am with Sam. When the insurance companies attorney said Sam was good during mediation, that was all the proof I needed and should be sufficient and reassuring for anyone else. Thanks again! A job extremely well done!!!

Good outcome
I was satisfied with the outcome Sam negotiated, it was fair and equitable. Sam works smart and is no nonsense, straight forward and very knowledgeable in the area of personal injury and auto. His savvy saved me a lot of fuss and directly led to a satisfactory outcome. I shopped a few others before going with Sam and he was clear choice at beginning, as he remains after my settlement.

Sam Warden Recomendation
When meeting with Sam Warden for my initial determination of lawyer representation I was quickly impressed with the way he represented himself and how he was able to explain the process of filing a claim. From that time I was confident that he could help to benefit me with my injury claim. Sam was able to keep records of the medical claims that were filed during the recovery process as well as gather documentation to determine income loss for the period of time off work due to the accident. Sam kept me informed during the process and while conversing with him during these times I felt his negotiating skills of reimbursement for my injuries would be strong. Upon settlement of the claim Sam's negotiating skills proved to be as powerful as I had anticipated.

Getting the Diminished Value check that was rightfully deserved
My car was hit by a careless driver, it had over 18k in damage and the insurance pushed to fixed. After months of waiting to get the car fixed, I called the insurance to talk about my Diminished Value check and they were quite rude to me and said my car was repaired to standard. I was very unhappy with that outcome and searched out Sam Warden via Google. We discussed on the phone and met in person for a consultation no charge. The insurance company was still being quite stubborn, but Sam was very stern on his resolve and 5 months later he handed me a large check that exceeded my expected amount (even after the fees deducted). He stands by his word and will get you that rightfully deserved check.

caterpillar Tractor
I am a farmer from Eaton, Oh. Recently I requested help from Sam concerning a tractor I purchased that was misrepresented before the sale. Although everything got settled out of court and it turned out to be a short process, I was very impressed with how helpful and professional Sam was. He sure caught on quick to tractor information too. If I need help again I will be calling him. Jerry
