My experience with attorney Paul Samakow was excellent, he gave my case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful. I never once was treated as anything other than a valuable client by his legal assistant Lizza. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received.
I want to thank Mr.Samakow for his work. He resolved my case during 3 months. It was much faster than I expected. Very professional and responsive attorney. I had couple attorneys before him for my case and they were not able to resolve it. But then I found Mr.Samakow and in 3 months after signing a contract I got my check. Thank you again for your work! I do recommend him.
It was a great pleasure to have Mr. Samakow on my case. My experience with Mr. Samakow and his team was nothing but positive. They were very kind and helpful. The team was always available to answer any questions that I had. Even Mr. Samakow was available when I needed assistance! That was a plus for me. Mr. Samakow was very sympathetic of my case. He did not treat my case like any random situation. My family and I are grateful for him and his team. If you need a hands on lawyer and team, I would recommend Paul Samakow!
Very professional manner and has practiced law for over forty years
I conducted a mediation recently with multiple parties and attorneys with the primary focus being to equitably divided a seven figure insurance policy. Paul Samakow represented two Plaintiffs with less severe injuries than others. Notwithstanding this fact, Mr. Samakow's common sense approach, coupled with his willingness to compromise for the benefit of all litigants, was instrumental in resolving all issues. It is indeed refreshing to work with a seasoned attorney who literally rolled his sleeves up to assist not only this mediator, but attorneys at the settlement table, to obtain a just result. I welcome the opportunity to work with Paul Samakow in the future for I know such will truly be a productive and successful experience.
Sincerely, Richard H. Sothoron, Jr. ret. Jurist, Circuit Court for Prince George's County, Maryland
