I'm passionate about helping people who've been treated unfairly by lenders and big businesses.I help people who have been victims of fraud. Usually perpetrated by large, unreachable businesses.Is there something on your credit report that doesn't belong there? I can help clean up the report.

Sam is an exceptional attorney. I hired him to represent me in a credit repair case and was more than pleased with the results. Sam is thoughtful, diligent, and knowledgeable. He understands the anxiety that surrounds issues related to one's credit report and does an excellent job assuaging concerns, setting realistic expectations, and clarifying any questions you may have as a client. Through working with Sam I was able to achieve a swift resolution of my case. Dealing with credit report issues is a stressful situation, so having a knowledgeable and experienced attorney like Sam is a significant asset and relief.

I worked with Sam a few years back he was helpful from day 1 and kept me updated on everything that was going on! I had a lawsuit going on against a huge corporation and honestly didn't think I'd get anything out of it but he got all of my concerns cleared up plus had a huge settlement amount in my pocket!! I definitely recommend him and will use him if I ever have any issues again.

The time came to make my IT consulting business into an LLC. Sam walked me through the process, created a husband-wife operating agreement, and reviewed my first contract. Sam was personable, trustworthy, and seemed to bill fairly. I will hire Sam again should I need future assistance from a business attorney.
