"I needed legal services and she provided that and so much more. She went up and beyond my expectations! She really listened and was patient with me; very easy to work with."MBW Avvo Review July 2015

"Sam Brown is the most knowledgeable and professional attorney I know. He is honest, trustworthy and treated me with the utmost dignity and respect. With this being the most difficult time of my life, Sam was more than just an attorney, he was my ally and support system. He guided me through every step of the process. I was going through a very difficult divorce after 21 years of marriage and Sam dedicated both his personal and professional time to my case. Sam was always just a phone call away, whether it was to talk me through a difficult decision or just to listen. Even at my lowest when I felt that there was no hope, Sam provided the counsel, guidance, support and the confidence I needed to help me get through all (and there were many) of the rough patches. Understanding my situation with my ex and the lack of any monetary support, Sam tried to save me money whenever he could by delegating work to appropriate associates and trying to avoid costs that were unnecessary. I can't thank Sam and his practice enough for everything from divorce proceedings, emotional support, mental support and the empathy and compassion that is rare in this day."SJB Avvo Review January 2016

"Without a doubt this past year has been the most difficult in my life, and I'm not sure what event will put this in the past or when that will happen, but I want to thank you both for representing me over the past year. Marietta, you have been so detailed and helpful with walking me through the process and keeping everyone on their toes. It has been a roller-coaster and to be honest a very frustrating process, but I completely trusted you to navigate me through it, and you did. Sam, your experience and knowledge were indispensable. Thank you so much for getting personally involved in my life and helping me through this!"HBD Satisfied Client Email January 2016 (MBW,SJB)
