Excellent Lawyer
I hired Mr. Samer for a criminal case against my neighbor, I explained at the beginning that this wouldn't be your average case and their would be a lot twists and turns but he assured me that he would give 100 percent. Well he has exceeded our expectations and always answered our e-mails and phone calls in a timely manner. He is the best lawyer.

Thanks Sam, I owe you!
After a lot of searching I finally chose Sam as my criminal defense attorney. I had an old charge that I did not know about that had turned into a warrant. A police officer interviewed me about an accusation from my ex-wife when we were going through a divorce. Years later after I moved across the country I found out about a warrant out for my arrest in Fresno. Long story short, I hired Sam and he found some technicalities in the law I didn't know about and got the entire case thrown out. His rates were very reasonable and he knows how to win. Thanks Sam! I owe it to you!

Expungement of DUI
This guy is amazing and very fast. When he says he is going to get things done, believe me he will. I needed to get an expungement and he walked me through everything I needed to know and took care of everything. I called him and within 30 minutes I had him on the phone. Stop looking for another lawyer this is the guy you want to represent you and he is very easy to talk to. I know looking for a lawyer kinda sucks and you don't know where to go but I'm telling you this guy is professional and if you don't have all the money he works with you on the price. I was working with another lawyer before and this guy is a million times better.

Thanks Sam for all your great work
I was in a horrible accident a few months ago, my son works for the government and gave me Sam’s number. He gave me a free consultation and I felt very confident in this firm. They really helped me out a lot with the settlement thank you Sam for all your hard work and dedication to my case.

Respect
14. When my wife needed help with expunging her record, Sam came to our rescue. He makes you feel like he really takes your case seriously. He always responded to our emails in a timely manner and didn’t mind being on the phone even late at night. He works swiftly so that you can get back to your real life and put the unfortunate circumstance that landed you in court behind you. I’m so glad we had him around.

Very knowledgeable
Attorney Sam Salhab is the best car accident lawyer in Fresno. I interviewed several attorneys in the Fresno area, before I chose Sam. He was genuine and knowledgeable from the start. Our whole experience with Personal Injury Attorney - Sam Salhab was fantastic!

Thank you Sam !
My father was an attorney, and later a judge, so I can pretty well tell a talented lawyer from a so-so lawyer, of which there are so many. Sam is one of the very talented ones. He presented all the options available to me, and let me choose the course that I felt most comfortable with. He was a calm and classy warrior in this client's defense, and obviously is well-respected in our courts. I followed his advice prior to court, tried to be a good client and do what I could to help, and everything was resolved to my satisfaction at arraignment, no further court processes required. Solid, friendly and professional representation, a terrific staff, a barrister well respected by the D.A.'s office and the court. I could not have asked for more. Thank you Sam !

After Searching AAVO for 6 months and Interviewing 3 Attorneys, I finally got help
I finally found an attorney who cared. I tried to represent myself and that WAS BAD!!! Even legal aid was wrong! I am not intimidated anymore of the, sometimes, seemingly unfair, family court system and false claims in court by the other party. I do not fear court with Sam beside me. Sam was so confident with his legal opinion, I immediately trusted him. Sam's opinion was correct and he succeed in finally getting me the help I needed. The judges was angry at me and then Sam came to help me and the Judge changed his attitude very quickly! I don't think that is right, but dealing with things as they are can empower you to win. A different attorney told me, "Are you going to fight for yourself in the system that is in place or are you going to lose". I didn't choose that attorney, but I decided to step forward with Sam. Outcome.. I finally got the results I wanted and now am happy with my life. The best thing about Sam, is that I was able to confide in him, things I didn't want to talk about or admit to anyone, even to myself. He took my information with no judgement and used it to help me. Also, his staff is just a kind and attentive, so I spoke honestly with them and they got the work done timely and professionally.

Got the results I wanted! Made me feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. Sam brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to the table.He takes initiative to make sure that the case is handled to your satisfaction. Very personable, professional, determined, passionate and easy to get a hold of with any questions. I have had about four lawyers before him for various reasons and if I ever need another, (and it falls under his area of practice) I will return. I am immensely satisfied.

Respectful and Agressive
Unfortulately I had to hire a lawyer; but fortunately I hired Mr. Salhab! He represented a family member as if he were a member of his own family. No stone was left unturned. He represented my family member as if he were his only client! I know without a strong, diligent lawyer on our side; there would have been dire consequences as incarcerated people seem to be treated as second-class citizens. They are people like everyone else; mistakes were made for whatever reason. Sam Salhab treats you with respect no matter what side of the fence you are on. I pray there is never an occaision to hire an attorney but if there is a need I will call Sam Salhab again! Thank you so very much.

Thank you Sam
My husband was dealing with a very serious matter that could have torn my family apart. But thanks to Sam the outcome was what we were hoping for and now my family has a second chance. Sam always kept me informed and was always willing to answer any questions I had and explain step by step the process of this matter. He fought vigorously for my husband and made him feel at ease and hopeful. I would recommend Sam Salhab to anyone who is going through a legal matter and wants the best and most aggressive representation possible. We can't thank him enough.
