"I came to Ms. Samuels, through a reccomendation, distraught with a lack of understanding of how to even begin the divorce process. After a quick meeting, I knew that she's the lawyer for me. Knowledgeable, understanding and quick to pick up on what needed to be done. As for the paperwork, I was guided through it quickly, as Ms. Samuels had requested for me to bring various documents: tax records, shared property, etc. Paperwork was signed and filed rapidly. She was even readily available for the most mundane of questions- "do I need to list the Ikea dresser..." Often times, items I had overlooked, she brought to my attention and kept me on track with the process. Ultimately, divorce sucks and with Ms. Samuels calm representation, I'd do it all over again (ok, not really, but you get what I mean ;)"

"I came to Miss Samuels when I had started my divorce on my own but had no idea what to do next. She met with me, helped me organize my papers, and explained the next steps. She was knowledgeable, professional, and understanding. She also gave me an honest evaluation of where my case was at and what needed to happen next. She helped me get everything back on track and took the uncertainty and stress out of the process. I would recommend her services to anyone in any stage of divorce. I would still be in limbo if I hadn't found her."

"I came to Ms Samuels desperately for help to get custody of my children! After consulting with various attorneys that seemed not very interested in my needs except for money, no guarantee, money upfront, ect.... I lost hope. After a few mos Ms Samuels was very caring, took the time to listen to me, looked for all the proof we needed to win, and most importantly allowed me to pay in installments. I owe this woman my life! She is simply amazing!!!!"
