Estate Litigation Questions
I contacted Sam to get advice on litigating an estate. The issue was timely and Sam went the extra mile to rearrange his current cases to accommodate my time-frame, get the facts, documents and then, to draft an overview advising me on the laws pertaining to my case. Sam also communicated with me clearly and exercised caution with my finances.

One of Idaho's finest!
Samuel T. Creason saved our case. After 3 other attorneys and a lot of heartache, Sam was hired to clean up a mess for an estate. Not only did he clean up the mess, he saved the estate. He went above and beyond the call of duty, finding whomever he needed to get the truth out. His and his staffs research skills are unparalleled. If it wasn't for Sam and his staff we would have lost almost everything. I would highly recommend Samuel Creason to anyone wanting an honest attorney. He will tell you upfront what he believes are the strengths and weaknesses in your case. On top of all of this, his billing is clear, concise, and beyond fair. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If Sam is unavailable when you call, they will help you where they can and if they cannot, they will make sure Sam gets back to you asap. Sam is excellent about returning phone calls, making appointments and showing up for appearances in court. We are grateful to Samuel T Creason for taking our case.

Friendly, honest, and EFFECTIVE
Mr. Creason helped me with a sensitive family/probate matter that had been dragging on indefinitely. Once he got involved, we finally ended this probate debacle, and I was able to move on with my life. Thank you!

Outstanding, Professional, Personable and Approachable
My son and I were in need of legal counsel in our quest for a U.S Patent and Trademark and in search for a recommendation of an attorney I searched the USPTO list of approved attorneys specifically in Lewiston area. Attorney Samuel Creason was on the list and I was relieved since I have known his dad for years and was confident that I need not search further. I made an appointment with Atty. Samuel Creason and my confidence was affirmed. He is first an outstanding professional, very personable and approachable, intelligent and helpful, and honest and caring. Our experience has been excellent and highly satisfying. He has worked diligentlly to accomplish our need and he did it while keeping us informed and involved in a very timely manner. I truly appreciate Attorney Creason and I highly recommend him for his expertise and professionalism.

Great Patents Attorney
We actually found Mr. Creason through a friend's referral. We needed an attorney to help us secure both patents and trademarks. Sam took the time to listen to our concept, made himself familiar with it over the course of a few weeks (niche market), and was able to help us secure what we needed. He is a quick study, witty and knowledgeable. If he doesn't know an answer (which was rare), he will research the situation earnestly until he has found the right answer best suitable for his client. As an Idaho corporation, we are proud to have Mr. Creason on our speed-dial anytime we need something done in the USPTO realm. He has been exceptionally mindful of deadlines and has given us ample time notifying us of any government renewals or notifications. We proudly recommend him to anyone in search of a patents and trademarks attorney. He won't let you down.
