best lawyer ever
Sam & Holly are a great team. Professional, honest and delivered the result he said he would. Confident. No nonsense. Got my son off on a criminal charge not based on facts. He and Holly prepared a great jury packet that totally destroyed the charges. My family and I are very grateful and if we ever have any criminal legal problems. Sam would be the first choice. God led us to him.

Tenacious
Sam R. Cammack III is hands down the best attorney in the city. He & his legal assistant Holly make a great team. Sam is very professional & honest in what you can expect as an outcome to your case. Holly is great and very accommodating to each unique situation. No matter how often I had questions, they were always answered. My case did not go to trial by jury, because Sam was able to obtain the desired outcome, but if it did, having Sam in your corner is a Godsend. He has a killer instinct & grit about him that you won't find in other lawyers. Other lawyers who have been practicing law for a long time might get "burnt-out" & not want to fight for what's right, i.e. "taking a deal." Not Sam! He has been practicing law for many years. Trust me when I say, he is not burnt out from it & will definitely fight for you. At the time I first hired Sam (2018-2019) I was also fortunate enough to have Tammy Thomas on his team & together they made the ultimate 1,2 punch. It was incredible watching them work. Tammy's attention to detail is unmatched. I again have had Sam assist me very recently in getting a case dismissed on Jan. 6th 2020. All in all, this law-firm has given me my life back & a great start to the new decade! THANKS SAM!

2x I was the victim of unlawful practice by authorities
Sam Cammack has always gone about his business quietly and efficiently while maintaining great communication.... Its def a law office that brings a caring, and genuine inviroment while maintaining very swift, knowledgeable representation that has been worth very penny. The first case was a First Degree Agg Felony that was put on me by horrible authoritative investigation and we walked within “No Bill” and rightly so. The second case was again a circus, if you will, by the same county and same legal system that created the first issue. I picked if a 3rd degree felony for something that wasn’t mine and Sam squashed it the first hearing we had... Thanks y’all... and I say “y’all” because none of this is possible without the one man Army.... Holly Quintero.. ❤️

The representation you want for any case
I am more than happy and satisfied with Sam Cammack and his team. They worked with me throughout the whole process, and always gave me a confidence push when I needed it. Their support, knowledge and experience about the law helped me and my family keep calm. If you want someone to truly fight for your rights and defend you in the most professional way, you can’t go wrong with them. These are all qualities I noticed myself everytime I met with them and had any questions. Even one of the times I called to check in with my bail bonds company for the week, the lady obviously has been in the business for years and she said that if she were ever to get in any kind of law situation, Sam Cammack is the one she would first call. That right there made me feel so good without even having to talk to Sam at that moment. My family is forever thankful for him and his team, they were able to dismiss my two cases involving my situation.

Fights for you!!
Called Mr. Cammack's office looking for some legal representation and a wonderful young lady named Holly answered the phone, and helped me get in touch with Mr. Cammack. If it wasn't for Mr. Cammack and his wonderful staff handling my case with swift justice, my case would probably still be lost in the system. I can't think of a better firm to turn to when you need help. Thank you Mr. Cammack and staff.

The Cammack boys saved my son's college career
Sam and Brandon helped settle my nerves, made me feel comfortable, Holly reassured me I was in the best hands. Needless to say my son has a clean record, was about to keep his scholarship, and entering his sophomore year. Thank you Cammacks! You're truly a blessing to our family in our time of need.

Sam Cammack
Awesome attorney. Always had my back and kept me in the loop. You get what you pay for and he doesn't just talk the talk. Great man to have on your side. If I ever need another attorney he has a client for life.

My Angels
If it wasn't for Sam and Brandon Cammack I would have been wrongfully accused. Today they won my case and it was kind of boring having to go to court but it was worth it they believed in me and no they are not rude they are nice and professional and so is there staff I recommend them to any body because from all the 20 lawyers I talked to they actually listened. Thank you I can honestly say that I can sleep better now.

Our Superhero Wears a Suit
When our family really needed help, Sam was there for us. Sam took our son's case and promised he would defend him like he was his own... and he did. Sam and his staff were professional, courteous and prompt in all dealings with us. We were kept up-to-date on appearances, meetings, court dates and progress with the case. Sam started by giving us all the information he could about our son's situation and the possible outcome of a trial. When our family was scared and nervous, Sam was calm and completely confident. We put our trust in him and he did not disappointment us. During the trial, Sam was a warrior in a fight and he never gave up his ground. When the trial ended, Sam claimed the battle and our son was the victor. After the trial, Sam continued to communicate with us, specifically to make sure our son was okay. Sam told our son to take opportunity he had been given and do the right thing with his life. Our son has taken Sam's excellent advice and we appreciate his professional and personal commitments to our family.

Top Gun Attorney
If not for my Attorney Sam Cammack lll I honestly feel I might have been wrongfully convicted of a felony charge. This took place during the DA Anderson era, where mind set was Conviction, Conviction at any cost. Information later surfaced regarding DA Anderson prosecution team of shady and unlawful practice and intent. Thank god for Sam and his team. Sam fought an uphill battle to the very end, I never doubted his expertise and experience to get us thru this nightmare. We came out victorious regarding my case. Once Again' Thank You Sam Cammack and your Team.

Reliable, tough and all around great!
Sam worked hard on my case years ago. Even though he had a million other things to do, nothing kept him from showing up and getting the job done. It took a while but he has strategy and reason behind every step he makes. My life would not be the same if it weren't for him. Have a little faith in him and he will not let you down!

Good Lawyer
When he took over on my case he proceeded to get me reinstated on probation on my first felony case and on my other felony case got me time served.

Recommend to NOT Hire this Lawyer
Hired Sam Cammack a few years ago for my criminal defense. He rarely returned my phone calls and cancelled meetings the day of at times. Knew very little detail about my case although he claimed he was prepared for trial. Never attended reset hearings and normally sent someone else. Big confusion in sorting my evidence. Said he would at least participate in jury selection but never did. I hired another lawyer and I was eventually cleared of all charges but of course Mr. Cammack kept my money.
