Mr.Lock was helpful in so many ways, very reasonable and very caring of my situation. Help me not only legally but get my life back on track as well as mentally prepared me for every step along the way. Forever grateful for Mr.Lock and the job he did. Thank you sir.

The absolute best!
The best decision I ever made was calling Mr. Sam Lock. Not only is he very professional but he also makes you feel very comfortable. I never felt as if I was "just a client" to him. Mr. Lock walked me through the entire process and was there for me every step of the way. Not only is Mr. Lock professional but he is one of the most humble people, in this profession, that you will ever meet. He always made me feel like he could relate to what I was going through and was truly on my side. I highly recommend Mr. Sam Lock. In my opinion he is the absolute best there is!

Lack of communication, awful advocate
Hired Mr. Lock for. DWI. Him and his office were awful at communicating. I never knew what to expect, and was completely uneducated. He did not put in the time or effort into my case which lead to awful results. Would not recommend
