Sam Israels is a superb lawyer. I have utilized his services in two instances for a civil restraining order - once initially and then for the renewal. In both instances, Sam exceeded the desired result. Beyond the results, Sam is responsive, honest, and forthright. Further, he does not "promise the world'. Instead, he provides his opinion based on the facts and provides his best insight as well as the associated risks. I would recommend Sam to anyone of need in his practice areas.
