Highly highly recommend!
Very experienced lawyer, very honest and very straight..different than all the lawyers who I hired before, made my worries vanished in 5 minutes phone call. In my first meeting I had many concerns and worries, magically I left his office and left all my worries their too! I hired 5 different lawyers Before him, never felt safe with any of them as I felt with Mrs.sam Kreamer. Again: highly, highly, highly recommended

Excellent estate planning services
I have worked with Sam both as the executor of my mother's estate after she passed away and also in my own estate planning. His office is professional, courteous, and kind during what can be difficult times. The estate planning documents were explained to us thoroughly, are comprehensive, and are easy to use. We have had several excellent experiences with Sam and his team and would recommend him to anyone who needs estate planning services.

Estate planning Attorney | Jun 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I had the pleasure of referring clients (who are residents of Iowa) to Sam for estate planning services. He is excellent when it comes to the technical aspects of estate planning and the related tax issues (he is a CPA, as well as an attorney). However, what impressed me most was the personal touch and compassion he brought to the engagement. The clients were most appreciative, too. Accordingly, I recommend Sam Kreamer and his firm without reservation for estate planning work. You will not be disappointed."
