Rani Sampson
Rani is incredibly sensitive to her client's needs and communicates in a way that is very effective, efficient, and considerate. To someone who has never dealt with attorneys, Rani made the process of the lawsuit as pain free as possible- explaining every detail without hesitation or frustration. She is very good at negotiating and making sure that the wants and needs of her clients are addressed carefully and made well known by the opposing party. We were very lucky to have her work alongside us, as we went through a challenging time. I am impressed by her hard work, resilience, and dependability. She worked tirelessly to ensure that our family was taken care of and continued to advocate for us when we didn't know what to do anymore. Rani is a gem of an attorney and I am very lucky to know someone as dedicated to her work as she is. It is clear that she is very client centered and works to ensure that the relationship is based on trust and honesty.

We hired Rani after another lawyer mishandled our case. We felt we were in good hands from our inital conversation with Rani due to her confediant personality which put us at easy. She handled every question in a very professional and knowledgable manner. If there were outstanding issues she was prompt to get answers back to us quickly and what I really loved is she would clearly explain both sides of our issue so that we could make an imformed decision on how to proceed that we were comfortable with. I would highly recommend Rani.

Highly recommended.
Rani always got back to me promptly. Her research and foresight anticipated both bogus and legitimate arguments from the other side that I never would have thought to consider. She made one significant scheduling error, but promptly corrected it so it didn't impact my case or otherwise inconvenience me. Rani was both professional and personable.

Homeowner Association Legal Issue
Ms. Sampson of the Sampson Law Office provided outstanding assistance to our Homeowner Association. We had stumbled along with another attorney when we called Ms. Sampson for assistance. Most favorable experience!!! She was very quick to identify the key issues and to recommend an amicable solution for all parties involved. Her conduct was fair, honest and most professional. Her experience in real estate law and her negotiation skills led to a quick, fair and solid agreement. We will continue to use her and would recommend her to other homeowner associations.

Didn't remember me
Contacted Rani by email and phone. Gave detailed information about my case. She indicated she was writing down the details, would put it in my file. I then set up consultation. Just before the appt, my father died. I told the office manager I would reschedule. I emailed Rani and told her I was ready to start the lawsuit. She obviously didn't remember me, or the info I had already given her. Made a big deal about how much she makes per hour and she was losing this by taking down my info. She then wanted a $10,000 retainer said and it would be $35,000 before anything would get done. She recommended I just sell the property. Regarding the lawsuit I had done nothing wrong, and the case was about neighbors violating easements and not following standard construction procedures. It was really straight forward, they were in violation of the law. Period. I had documentation, photos, videos, notes, and texts, easements, and proof. I had money too.
