Sam-Sam the Magic Man!
I was at a standstill in a divorce proceeding and couldn't get across the finish line. After 12 months time, frustration and money, I let the initial attorney go and called Sams office. Sam got done in one week what the other attorney couldn't in the previous 6 months. And, get this, I received almost half my retainer back. No chit! Although my business with Sam was relatively short and limited to a few phone conversations, he was a pleasure to speak and work with. I really appreciate his kind yet no nonsense, straight talking communications, efficiency, knowledge and professionalism. Made me a believer that not all attorney are a**holes. Sam clearly raises the bar. He will forever be remembered to me as, Sam-Sam the magic man!

Outstanding among peers
Simply put, Sam is head and shoulders above his peers in family law. Sam got results, as he navigated an incredibly complex, multi-state custody case. I personally hired 6 separate attorneys from 3 separate states during a multi-year case. I was looking for a result, not a service. I can't say enough about working with Sam. The national, and even the large firms in major cities simply will not fight for you on the same level that Sam will. He is an honorable, outstanding professional - a man among men.

Happy Outcome
Sam was amazing in walking me patiently through my divorce. He was always available to take an endless amount of phone calls from me whenever I had a question or an issue arise. His sense of humor is what got me through mediation and a very contentious divorce. I could not have asked for a better attorney than Sam Solodar!

Sam Solodar
Sam was simply amazing. He was incredibly compassionate and understanding. From our first visit I knew he had my children and my best interest at heart. The divorce was tricky, filled with games played by my ex. Sam handled every issue swiftly and directly. I didn't expect to walk away with anything but a divorce but in the end I received a hefty settlement that allowed my kids and I to start our new lives. I recommend Sam Solodar to any person going through this stressful process.

Most compassionate and caring lawyer you'll meet
Sam was caring, listened to my concerns, and truly supported me. I had to fire my first attorney because they didn't listen. I will always appreciate Sam's support.

Great Attorney
Samuel Solodar is a great attorney if you have to go through a divorce. He’s very considerate and will take his time answering all your questions. Could not have asked for a better attorney to help me through the process.

Easy decision. Hire Samuel.
Sam recently represented me in a divorce proceeding and I was very satisfied with his services. The best part about hiring Sam is he acts in a very transparent and pragmatic manner, which really resonated with me. Divorce is nasty business, and avoiding the emotional trappings of my spouse / her family was a cornerstone of the counsel Sam provided. I felt like he genuinely had my best interests at heart and actively strove to represent those interests accordingly. Couldn't have been happier with how the settlement shook out, and I directly attribute that to my lawyer. Extremely relatable and personable with me throughout the entirety of the process, highly recommend his services.

Compassionate, thoughtful and most of all straight shooter
Finding the right attorney to represent you can be daunting. I needed the right counsel, the right attorney. I found that with representation of Samuel Solodar. He didn't sugar coat my situation. When I was unreasonable, he pulled me back to reality. He fought for my best interest with his legal expertise and loyalty. While I hope that my future does not require legal counsel for a divorce I am writing this review to give you peace of mind in your search for counsel. I urge you to make the right decision in having Sam represent you. I can without a doubt feel that if you follow Sam's direction, he will provide you the best legal advice for your situation.

Professional and Compassionate
I cannot emphasize enough how grateful I am to have worked with Sam through my divorce. I had a relatively quick and minimally complicated divorce, but he is the one who made it go so smoothly. When I reached out to Sam he responded to my call within a couple of hours and met with him in person later that week. My stressed mind was put at ease in just one meeting with him. He answered all of my questions as they came up and made me feel like he was always available to help me. Sam was thorough, efficient, professional, and compassionate. I am so grateful a relieved to have worked with him and he is 100% worth every dollar spent. A great lawyer and great human being. Don't go anywhere else!

Sam Solodar 2020
The moment I first called Sam's office, I was shocked when I first stated "May I please speak to Sam" and in response the person on the other side of the line responded "Speaking". From that moment on I realized that my case wasn't going to be pushed off to some assistant or paralegal and felt like if I ever was uncomfortable or if I had any questions that I could get a hold of the expert/professional who was directly handling my of my legal issues. Sam is a pretty honest person and realistically will set expectations for you based on his experience and expertise. Whatever you value he will make sure to prioritize and value is if the case was happening to his dearest family member. If somehow he didn't make it as a lawyer, he probably could have made it as a counselor for all the times I nervously called and he was able to talk me through everything (Ha, there were definitely more than a few times). Most importantly I would say Sam is a pretty ethical lawyer, his motivations for practicing law are for good intentions as he wants to help bring families together (Or as close as possible really) and you aren't just another client that helps fund his private jet. P.S. If you ever need a nice selection of new music in your life, feel free to consult with Sam on this matter and I'm sure he won't charge you for this short consultation lol.

Hire Sam now! He’s great
I hired Sam to be my divorce lawyer and the experience was better than I could have hoped for. He was so warm, empathic, friendly and professional. Talking to him and working with him felt like being with a friend who had my best interests in mind at all times. I could not recommend him more highly. He's a great person in addition to being a stellar lawyer. Sam I can't thank you enough for helping me through this difficult time and being such a support at the same time!

Compassionate and Professional
Sam came recommended to me and I'm so thankful to have found him. Having never had any legal issues before, the idea of hiring a lawyer and going through the process of divorce was very daunting. I never thought I would be in this position nor ever wanted to be. Sam was compassionate and understanding and I truly felt like he was on my team. He made everything as easy as possible under the circumstances and was completely professional, while at the same time understood all the emotions I was going through and made me feel like I had a friend through it all. He's a great attorney and a great person. I highly recommend him!

Sam Solodar - Highly Recommend
Sam Solodar is an honest, professional, trustworthy, approachable and fair lawyer and was an indespensible help to me when going through the difficult process of divorce. What could have been a contentious or frightening experience was made much easier by Sam's expertise. He was there to offer legal advice, answer any questions I might have and even walked me through the whole process and explained why everything had to be done and how we were going to get it done. He took a huge burden off my shoulders and made it easier even when further obstacles came up. I'm was very satisfied with the results that he achieved for me, which were even beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone needing an attorney because he treat his clients with respect, he is very knowledgeable and also approachable, his fees are very reasonable and he always has his clients' best interests at heart.

Very pleased
The first time I met Sam I was nervous, worried, scared and not sure how the whole custody battle would turn out. Since I talked to a few other attorneys before him and I wasn't feeling comfortable with them and had my doubts. After speaking with him I felt so much better I felt I was able to talk to him about everything what was going on. He explains everything very well, good listener and is straight forward he definitely stayed calm when my ex was getting upset. I was very pleased with him and would recommended him to anyone.

Top notch attorney
Through the process of divorce, you’ll learn that every well respected attorney has their own unique style and delivery - both which heavily influence their success both in and out of the courtroom. Mr. Solodar’s style is simple and concise - give him the information he asks for, listen and act on his advice, and then watch him carefully orchestrate from there on out. If you want to be successful - you’ll need someone by your side that’s highly communicative, transparent about the process, and who also demonstrates a vested interest in the best outcome for you and your family. Mr. Solodar delivers on all of these spectrums. I have the utmost level of respect for his practice, and have nothing but good things to say about both him and his team. I’m forever grateful for his guidance, as well as the results delivered on the final decree. You can’t go wrong with this guy - solid professional, and an even better person. Good luck to you throughout the process.

Did a great job
Mr Solodar did an excellent job with my child support case. He kept me informed every step of the way, which is important since I am out of state. He also did a great job finding workarounds to keep the case from going to court again (see out of state comment above). He avoided extra expenses and found workarounds when the other party was being difficult (i.e. difficulties in locating). I would highly recommend him to anybody.
