| Hired Attorney
Knowledgeable and Empathetic
My husband and I hired them for a child support case. We have a disabled child and I am also physically disabled so it was very scary for us to go through and they were VERY patient with me as I acted like a "Karen" and my husband and I were very emotional over the whole ordeal and called in literally in tears often. They gracefully accepted my apologies and worked very hard to make sure that our family got a fair judgement. We talked to Samantha quite a bit as well and found her to be one of the most honest and knowledgeable lawyers we've ever spoken to. Their billing was very fair as well. I would recommend this firm ten times over again.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Samantha Smith is an excellent attorney. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in many areas of the law including family law, bankruptcy, criminal and civil matters. We went to trial together on a highly contested and emotion filled divorce and custody matter. Samantha was well prepared, well-versed in the law as well as knowledgeable as to what the specific Judge was looking for during trial. Samantha's knowledge of how specific Judges view matters and what they look for is one of the many characteristics that gives her an edge over her competition. Samantha is very professional and compassionate when dealing with clients who are at their lowest points in life.

Amazing and Experience Professional
Samantha is the consummate professional. After consulting with a few attorneys, I felt extremely comfortable with Samantha. She was very thorough, answering all my questions and explaining each step along the way to support me in a difficult time of divorce. Samantha responsiveness was top notch. She listened to my needs while helping me to balance my short term emotions with long term needs/scenarios. I would recommend Samantha to anyone who is going through divorce.

Avoid at all cost
I hired her and she ruined my case so bad had to get another attorney. That attorney said she Dilapidated my case and I could do a Attorney Grievance on her. Took an extra 3 month in court due to her. She might be a good paper pusher but as an attorney she's not.
