While purchasing my home in Kankakee county, my wife and I hired Samantha as our real estate lawyer. She was exceptional from the beginning. She initiated all needed documentation quickly. Samantha also acquired any information needed from us, the real estate agents, and the seller's attorney to keep the process moving forward in a timely manner. The seller was able to negotiate with the closing company to perform the closing at Kankakee county's rates (since the home is located in Kankakee county) which are considerably less expensive than the county in which closing took place. This actually saved us and the seller quite a bit. Samantha's rates were extremely reasonable, especially considering that she was able to save us more than what her fee was. I already have personally recommended her to a family member, and I will recommend her to anyone needing a friendly, knowledgeable attorney in the future.

My wife and I hired Samantha in order to pursue a child support matter that we believed was going on for quite some time. Initially there were some difficulties communicating with the other side (defendant), which Samantha handled very effectively. As suspected, we had been receiving only partial and misleading financial information for years. Samantha was able to obtain the correct documents and information from the defendant, assist with the proper calculations and was successful with our motion for modification. We are so thrilled with how that situation was handled that we decided to continue with Samantha for another family law matter that has recently come up. Throughout the entire legal process, from the initial meeting through the final court date, my wife and I both felt very comfortable and confident having Samantha on our side.

Samantha is an excellent lawyer who was always there when i needed her, and still is when i have questions. She helped me 3 years ago witha custody agreement and child support order..i was very pleased with both and just recently she helped me when i wanted to take my childrens father back to court. She is extremely honest and never let me move forward with something she didnt think would be in my favor....she was always there for advice or even just to listen...I have and would recommend her to anyone in need of a great lawyer!

I've known Samantha for a few years now, and she is clearly passionate about helping people with their legal matters. She is a responsible person and a diligent and knowledgeable attorney. I would recommend her without any hesitation.
