Great work
Sam and his team of professionals did an excellent job of putting together my Trust and Estate Plan. They were very good about walking me through the whole process, and patient with my hundreds of questions, did everything in a timely manner and the cost was good. Everything was done much to my satisfaction. Great job

Estate Planning
Patience, understanding, complete respect to our individual estate planning situation and desired goals. We just felt really comfortable and confident with Mr. Price throughout the entire process. With all the estate planning lawyers available, using Avvo as our primary research tool, we knew from our very first consultation with Mr. Price that we had selected the right legal consul for our estate planning needs. We do not routinely respond to survey requests or provide reviews, but Mr. Price definitely earned our time to provide him this review. Thank You to Avvo and Thank You to "Sam".

Helpful and friendly
They were very helpful for a probate case, taking the time to explain everything to us. In the end, we decided not to go through with it. They gave us a full refund of our deposit, not charging us for the time they had spent with us. I would recommend Price Law Firm.

Very knowledgeable
I found Mr. Price to be very knowledgeable in his area of real estate. He was able to expertly resolve a real estate issue by helping me even on a weekend. For that, he definitely earned my kudos. I would definitely do business with him in the future.

Exceptional professionalism and knowledge
I am a well seasoned, ( 30 plus years ) business owner , operator and building contractor. During my career I had the need to avail myself of professional legal service and consultation on occasion and for a variety of issues . In all of my experience with legal professionals / Lawyers , I have never experienced one with the exceptional professionalism, knowledge, courtesy and attention to detail as Mr. Price . He listens to the client patiently and carefully, enhanced only by the fact that he vividly recalls relative and often crucial circumstances surrounding whatever the client's current circumstances might be. I cannot say enough to explain the high regard I have for Mr. Price and the level of quality legal counsel I received for a very fair and competitive fee .

Great legal advice for real estate matters!
I’m a real estate investor and Sam has helped me to form my LLC in Nevada for asset protection and the best tax benefits. He has also given me valuable legal advice on a real estate matter I have in Los Angeles. As a long term real estate investor this man knows his stuff, by first hand experience. He is more educated in this field, more experienced and all round better than your average lawyer.
