Personal injury case
I became a client at the Maida law firm due to a vehicle accident. I was very upset that this had happened to me. I called the law firm, they explained and calmed me down on what rights I had since I was not at fault. I hired them the same day to get the ball rolling. The law firm is very professional. They were definitely there to assist on all levels as I needed. I am very proud to know this law firm and all the staff. The staff always respected me as a client and treated me very well. Thanks to the Maida Law Firm and staff, I am very happy to have done business with them! :)

Proud to call him a friend as well as my attorney
Proud to call him a friend as well as my attorneySam and I went to high school together and when I was hospitalized due to a previous auto accident I had Sam was the first person I called. Not only did they help me come up with a very satisfactory resolution, but they assist me in other matters that they really didn’t have to. The Maida law firm has gone above and beyond what I would’ve ever expected. I can truly tell you that I will always be grateful for Sam Maida and his associates.

Great Service
I had a consultation with the Maida Law Firm after I had a tragic car accident involving my wife, my children , and myself. We were struck by another vehicle. The insurance company did nothing but give us grief and zero hope of receiving help. After the consultation with the Maida Law Firm I felt confident my family was in good hands. Our medical needs and bills were met and the situation was rectified by the professional service we received. I would refer anybody that is need of an excellent law firm that takes care of personal injury claims. Thanks for the help!!

Best Decision I Could have Made
I was injured in a fall in a commercial establishment that denied responsibility. Sam was referred to me by a close friend. I met with Sam and immediately knew he was just what the doctor ordered, no pun intended, and I/we filed a suit for my damages, etc.. Sam was very strategic in his approach with my case. Law suits by nature are a slow and tedious process. Mine took over two years. There was not a time during this process that I felt neglected, or like the case had lost steam, or that I was somehow bothering Sam to call him and discuss issues with him. Sam was always accessible. He would call me to discuss his strategy, give me updates and in general stay in contact with me. Later in the case, Sam suggested we bring in a another attorney who specialized in premises law. It was a great strategic move on Sam's part. The addition to the team really started the wheels turning by getting the attention of the group I was suing. Long story short, next thing I know we are in arbitration, and we settled the case for much more than I ever had truly anticipated. Sam was masterful in orchestrating the tempo, flow and outcome of my case. My family and I felt we were extremely well represented and compensated for the injuries both physical and mental we had to endure because of this group's negligence. I highly recommend Sam to anyone who feels they have fallen victim, been injured, etc. because of another's negligence.

The Maida Law Firm was there for me in my need of trama . I felt I had no one to assist me in something I had no control over .Sam and his staff were all very professional they were with me until the end .

Endorse Sam
Litigation Attorney | Jul 06
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Sam is one of the most impressive young attorneys with whom I have been privileged to work over my long career. Sam is the full package: tough, hardworking, vigorously loyal to his clients, and honest. He represented a severely injured young construction worker and family man in a complex, multi-party case where I defended the primary defendant in Federal Court. I found him aggressive and hard working, never allowing the case to languish. He did his homework and took care of his business. He was creative in working out a settlement very favorable to his client in a case with numerous corporate defendants, and one always knew he was dealing with a man of unflinching integrity with Sam. I quickly learned I did not have to follow up with him. He did what he said, did it with expertise, did it timely, and all the well maintained the highest level of integrity. I would not hesitate to call on Sam to represent me, were the need to arise."
