One of the most intelligent, ethical and honest advocates!
Without providing to much personal detail, I will say that Sam is not only one of the most warm, friendly and overall tenacious advocates for those of us in need of help, but also someone I consider a friend! Thank you Sam for who you are and all that you do!

Filing and S-Corp was very easy with Sam
Sam did an excellent job helping us set up an S-Corporation for the first time. I had done LLCs before but didn't feel comfortable going through all of the paperwork for filing a Delaware Corporation. Sam and his assistant were very professional and very responsive to our questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend Sam to anyone who asked.

Samuel Swenson diligent not afraid to put in the work
Samuel Swenson is an intelligent and motivated attorney. Saw my case and was not afraid to do the work. Straight forward and knowledgeable. His support staff is amazing, alert and, pay attention to detail. Although there is no resolution yet to my case and we have just got started I could not feel any better about my choice. At this point I feel certain of a positive outcome. I will repost once my case is resolved.
