Client Testimonials:

I called Sam Nassetta the day before I had court. He took my case and showed up the very next day after calling him. He showed the utmost professionalism and confidence that he was able to help me get the best outcome for my case. He most certainly followed through with those intentions. Very stand up, relatable person that treated me as a friend instead of just another client. Would 1000% recommend to anyone in need of assistance. - Mike M.

We dealt with Sam on a case with our son for well over a year. In that time he always exhibited excellent communication, compassion for our family and treated us like we were his only client. The peace of mind he provided us with through his confidence and demeanor cannot be overstated. He made sure that we understood each and every step along the way. Through his determination and knowledge of the process we received a very favorable outcome and can't thank him enough for being an excellent lawyer and more importantly a wonderful human being. - Jill
