Sam is a colleague who I trust to work for the benefit of Iowa consumers. When I needed someone to cocounsel with me on a complex litigation case that was crucial for low income families Sam was my first choice. He’s creative and smart and cares about doing the best for his clients.

Highly recommend!!!! Googled consumer protection lawyer in Des Moines. We called and discussed our situation. Sam advised with recommended next steps and invited us to call them after following. Followed their advice. Called a second time within 2 hours and offered advice again. Excellent response time with phone, email correspondence. Clean and Simple with excellent professionalism. Hope to never need to call them again; however, with similar situations, they will be 1st and only call if needed. Many thanks to their team and especially [Sam]. We are very appreciative for their advice!!!!
