Criminal Sexual Conduct (CSC)

Sex Crimes Review

“….When your husband is accused of CSC, everything about your relationship comes under question. Not only did Sam explain every step of the process to me in detail which put me at ease, he somewhat served as a counselor by easing my concerns as a wife. I fully supported my husband, but doubt definitely entered into the picture.

Sam assured me that he believed in my husband and that we would get through this. My husband admitted guilt and accepted a plea deal.

Sam worked with the prosecutor to avoid my husband having a felony conviction, found him a therapist that specializes in the treatment he needs to move forward from this situation and said he’d be available to help when he can be removed from the sexual offender list.

There are many reasons I would recommend Sam to anyone seeking an attorney. He immediately returns phone calls. He is available at YOUR convenience. It feels more like you’re working with a family member or friend. He doesn’t act like he’s better than you or like his time is more important than yours. He doesn’t rush through anything. He made me feel as if I was just as important as my husband. And he didn’t panic when I cried plus he got my sense of humor.”
