A knowledgable and tireless advocate
I have worked with Samuel on several criminal defense matters. He had a fantastic knowledge of the law. His assistance was critical in getting a good resolution for our client. I recommend Sam, especially for immigration matters.

Great experience!
After meeting with several attorneys, I hired them to represent my father in his immigration case because they seemed trustworthy and knew the immigration law and process. At first I was a little concerned because they had received their license 5-6 years ago and looked very young but after meeting with them I realized they had more than enough experience. I also like that they answer the calls directly, are very responsive, keep you informed, and have great payment plans! Overall, I had a GREAT experience! Sammy and his partner also have criminal law experience and I would hire them again.
