Mr. Samore did everything to help with my son's case. He was very honest and got to the point with the case. I would recommend Mr. Samore. Thank you for everything you did for my son. If it wasn't for you the out come would be a lot different..

I am a digital forensic examiner and worked with Mr. Samore on a case. Mr. Samore was always professional and very easy to talk with. He explained legal concepts in a way that the non-legal mind could follow, he was very passionate about his work and he asked great questions about the forensics in this case and was eager to learn.
I would highly recommend Mr. Samore and would not hesitate to use him myself for legal matters.

Mr. Samore did so much for my case, I can't even express how much he helped my son and I. Without going into details of my case, I will say that this attorney helped to get my son out of a dangerous situation and in so doing, saved his life. Mr. Samore became so involved with my case through the course of 4+ years that he worked on my case. He is the type of attorney that I can call and hear back from him within a few hours. This is not the case with attorneys who work in large firms, where there is a sea of red tape to get through, to just leave a message. If you need an attorney who will actually pay attention to your case and knows you and the details of your case, this is the attorney for you. He doesn't pull any punches and is very experienced. I would absolutely recommend this attorney to friends and family. In fact, I already have. I walked into his office in 2008, not knowing the journey that we would find ourselves going through together. It is now 2015, and I am happy to call Mr. Samore a family friend. It was good having a great attorney and a great person by my side through the tears, and the victories. My case was a really rough one and looking back, I can't imagine going through it all with another attorney. A big huge thank you to Mr. John Samore for being a top notch attorney and such a great person!

I have worked with John as the opposing counsel in several cases. John is an assertive advocate for his clients, but he also knows how to find common ground and, if possible, settle cases without going to Court. He is very professional and knowledgeable regarding family law.
