Sam Turco
Sam was patient, kind and never condescending to me. That is what I was most impressed with. Also, his and Brenda's quick responses to my emails was appreciated. He knew all the in/outs.

GREAT Attorney
Sam was very informative from the start. During the consultation, he explained the options I had, as well as what that meant in terms I could understand. I have sent numerous emails to him with other questions or concerns and he has always replied in a timely manner. That's why I hired him to help me!! I would definitely recommend him. Very knowledgeable for what he does.

Knowledgeable & Personalized
I originally consulted with Sam at Sam Turco Law Offices a few months ago as my wife & I were struggling with maintaining payments to many credit cards & a few personal loans (cars, medical, education). After sharing our situation (in a nutshell), Sam was very knowledgeable & up front with the options available to us & gave us some options which actually included seeking help from an outside credit consolidation counseling company (not affiliated with his firm). I found it relieving that he was so focused on finding a solution to our situation that the solution would even lead us away from using his firm (as our situation warranted). Sam was very personable & conversational that I felt that he was truly giving us the best options available, given our particular circumstances. For those in financial hardship, I would greatly suggest that you consider calling Sam Turco Law Offices as they will lay out a thoughtful plan after understanding whether or not bankruptcy is right for your situation. Thank you Sam!

Had a positive experience- Sam and Brenda had a friendly personality, never felt like I was being judged for my situation or given a hard time. The explained the process, made it a lot less stressful. after the initial filing, any time I had questions or needed something, they always returned my calls/emails.
