Remove all doubt, Samera's team kicks a**
I did a lot of research a few years ago because I knew I was going to get divorced and that I would have a difficult one to deal with. I started meeting with Samera at least two years before we actually started working together. I'm confident I hired the right team. All lawyers will burn your money fast, so take that off the table. The reality is, many times during the process I questioned myself by hiring Samera's team and started shopping around. What I found is there isn't anyone better out there despite the reviews. Samera has excellent reviews and has earned them. Samera knows her sh*t. Also very important is the fact that the mediators and judges know and respect Samera. Samera will weed out the stuff that doesn't matter and tell you that. In fact she will tell you things you don't want to hear, but that is how the court will see it, so you need to listen to her. What I've learned over the years is to question my own judgement and just trust the process. I did that here, I trusted the process and I trusted Samera's team and it paid off. Samera and team kicked ass in the courtroom and in the handling of my case.

Caring, tough, and outstanding attorney!
Samira is kind, attentive, understanding, tough, and brilliant! I was referred to her by a legal professional who associates with some of the finest Family Law attorneys in the state, and she was everything he said she was. If you are involved with a divorce or custody case, you definitely need to call her!

Absolutely amazing!!!
I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to Samera and her team. I could write pages upon pages about why you should hire her, but then you'd be losing precious time that you should have been calling her to get her on your case. I can promise you that you will not regret it!!! The incredible work and dedication shown in my case was beyond expectations and absolutely instrumental in an incredibly difficult case. I could never thank her enough!!

This is a team of legal miracle workers!!!!
Samera Habib and her team of legal professionals worked my case one step at a time and delievered results I can only classify as "a legal miracle". My separation involved a custody battle and there were many challenges stacked up against me. I couldn't be more thrilled with the team and the outcome. The heart and care behind what Samera Habib and her firm did for me were the key factors in the successful outcome of my case. It can be a terrifying thing to go through. Dads!!! This team can and will help you. This is a team of legal miracle workers!!!!

Amazing
Samera is an amazing lawyer. She found my ex-wife in Penial Contempt and Remedial contempt. She Was able to fully display the weaknesses of the opposing counsil on cross examinations and throughout the entire hearing. She is a very attentive and amazing lawyer I can't speak enough about her. She has put together a dynamic team that far surpasses any other law firm i have used. She will be my lawyer for as long as my kids are under 18.

Honest and knowledgeable
Samera actually looked at some of the details of my case before our consultation was complete; I have not encountered this often when speaking to other lawyers. I needed advice regarding a custody issue and Samera was honest and knew enough to give me good advice. She was concerned about the cost I might have to pay vs. the changes of success and was clear about both. I will be hiring her in order to help me move forward with my case in a way that will be least harmful for my child and will increase my chances of success.

Couldnt ask for more
Samera took on my divorce case in February of 2016. I had criminal charges pending at the time related to the divorce. From the very beginning, Samera stood behind me and supported me. I eventually was found "NOT GUILTY" on all counts in August 2016. The divorce and custody case lasted nearly a year. I went 330 days without seeing my children. During this time, Samera and Kristen worked diligently on my case and were very meticulous in every aspect. At one point, the odds seemed to be heavily favored towards the mother. This didn't stop Samera or even slow her down. She and her team were incredible and in December 2016, Samera got me the best possible outcome in the case. Her hard work and determination combined with my strong will and determination to be a father to my kids finally paid off. I now see my kids regularly and have the opportunity for no less than 50/50 custody! Samera and Kristen's caring nature carried me through, undoubtedly, the most trying time of my life. I witnessed her in action in the courtroom firsthand, and I am glad I had her in my corner. Samera and Kristen's attention to detail ensured nothing was missed in this very difficult case. Samera made my case personal to her and I just cannot say enough good things about her. Thank you Samera and Kristen!

Gave me peace of mind
Samera has been an amazing attorney and has done an excellent job with my child custody/support case. She's been a very calming presence during mediation and really knows her stuff in regards to family law. She's always prepared and extremely poised. After I realized I was going to need an attorney to help me through this process, I was horribly stressed and it was affecting my life. I'm so grateful I found Samera - her intelligence and good heart has calmed me down. I can tell she really cares about my children and my case. This also goes for her entire office. I would highly recommend Samera and her staff.

Life savers
They have been a light in my dark and lonely world during a heartbreaking divorce for me so far. They may be in the law field but so far I've considered them lifesavers. We are not thru with the process yet but I have great faith with them standing along side me.

Samera and her teem are excellent
Samera and her teem are excellent. They expedited my case and kept me informed all the way. They care about the people they are helping. They even contacted me after the case was closed to see how we were doing. I highly recommend Samera and her firm.

Divorce/Child custody
Let me begin by saying that divorce can be one of the most painful experiences, with extreme highs and lows, that I would never wish upon anyone. Some even describe divorce similar to a death, where the one you invested everything in, is now out of your life. That being said, the reality is that more than 50% of married couples will experience divorce. I am no exception, and have succumbed to one of those statistics. It was now time to face the music, and seek out an attorney that specializes in family law, and divorce, preferably in the county I reside, where I believe would be more familiar with the court system and judges, thus, being more advantageous. I first set up a meeting with an attorney whose law firm was rather close in proximity, to the court house, that will be presiding over my case. I disclosed the facts of my case to this attorney, who had extensive experience, and appeared quite knowledgeable in how to proceed. I told this attorney that I wanted to think about our meeting and discussions a little longer, before making a decision. I left the firm's parking lot, with a sense of uncertainty, and a gut-feeling that I didn't feel confident that this was the attorney for me. That same day, I called the law firm, Robinson and Henry, P.C., who set me up with an appointment with their specialist in Family Law, and Divorce, Samera Habib, ( Samera is currently with SH Law Solutions, P.C.). Prior to meeting her, I was a little skeptical, as my previous experience, left me with a feeling of uncertainty and anxiety. Upon our first meeting and conversation, I quickly noted Ms. Habib's focus and determination, asking the right questions and overwhelmingly, assuring me, what our course of action should be, and when to move forward. She never wavered as she was bombarded with a series of questions, that I wanted to be answered immediately. My demeanor was one of distraught and despair, as she could see that I was suffering emotionally from the onset of my divorce. Ms. Habib was blunt and direct, about my circumstances, but had a way of being sincere and compassionate at the same time. She understood how I felt, as she herself, disclosed to me, some of her own personal experiences of divorce. We discussed the many issues thatt needed to be addressed. Once again, as I was leaving, I told her that I wanted to think about everything before making a decision. As I drove away, I had a good feeling about Ms. Habib. At that point I knew I didn't need to look any further, as she was the one for me. I called her the next day and told her that I wanted her to represent me. The process of my divorce was emotional, lengthy, and exhausting, lasting just over a year. My circumstances included my children, and a job, that on more than one occasion was in jeopardy, because of false and unfounded allegations. There were times, at my lowest point, that I felt completely helpless and vulnerable. However, Ms. Habib was always there to talk a little common sense, putting things in perspective, and setting my mind at ease. She had a way of staying true to the course, dotting all of the i's, and crossing all the t's, making sure that everything was in place, to offer the best possible outcome for me. I am happy to say that I received my final decree just a little over a week ago. Ms. Habib fought for me, and the things that mattered most in my life, especially my children. She was also able to put in place a favorable Separation Agreement, and Parenting Plan, that will allow me to focus ion my children, my job, and my financial and living arrangement. Ms. Habib also has given me the opportunity to move on with my life, beginning anew, and putting certain things behind me. I am forever indebted to her for her devotion, commitment, and professionalism. Thank you! joe

Samera I. Habib = Client Confidence
From the first meeting I had with Samera Habib I was filled with a confidence in my case that I had never known before. Prior to hiring Ms. Habib I was incredibly naive while working with my ex on custody issues for my daughter. Samera went above and beyond fixing mistakes I had made in the past and working hard to get me what exactly what I wanted from my current case. She was honest and clear with every action we had to make - even if I needed to hear some hard facts. Very good at presenting options and making suggestions while empowering me to make decisions that would best benefit myself, my daughter and my family.

Couldn't ask for a better attorney!
Ms. Samera Habib was nothing but professional from our initial consultation to the conclusion of my custody case. She went above and beyond what my expectations were and she was so empathetic and understanding towards me through out my very tough custody case. She always made sure I understood every process of the case and what was next I would recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or custody battle. Thank so very much Ms. Samera Habib

Client
Samera is an amazing attorney! Would recommend her services to anyone desperate or not fighting for their child .. Although not the cheapest she is the best !! Fighting lawyers who use the legal system to hurt good parents such as Ann Gushurst who regularly uses children as a financial profit to further her finance of a second home .. Samera has integerty and a sting ethic and moral aptitude when fighting for her clients and the children .

Not only did we get the results we wanted. Samera is definitely the best at what she does and so is her team. I can't thank them enough for all that they have done.

Great Job!!
Samera, met with my son and me on the first consultation and told us exactly what we should expect. During the process she or one of her staff would keep us updated on everything that was required, Hopefully we will not need this service again but if we do I will give her a call.

Exceptional family law attorney with a brilliant team.
Samera is a brilliant strategist with a passion for child custody cases that stems from her own personal experience as a stepmom. My husband and I spoke with a different family law attorney prior to meeting with Samera. That attorney advised us that we didn't have a strong case. Samera disagreed. She and her team managed to settle our custody dispute in fewer than 45 days without a single court appearance. My 11-year-old stepdaughter now permanently resides with her father and me, and the three of us couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of our case. I will happily refer anyone on the right side of a complicated child custody case to Samera.
