How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Family law is one of the most emotionally trying areas of law possible, due to all of the relationships affected by any situation involving it. By helping those experiencing legal issues regarding family law, I am able to make a difference and allow them to move forward with as little pain as possible.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I firmly believe that a client should be fully educated on the legal issues they are facing and therefore I fully support any efforts they make for self-education.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am always willing to review documents if I feel that they will assist me in my primary goal of helping my client get their desired result.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

In our initial consultation, I will evaluate my client's case and then discuss with them so that we can both decide how I will best be able to help them.

Elliot D. Samuelson

I have over 40 years of experience in matrimonial law and work hard to provide my clients with the full benefit of my knowledge in this particular field of law.

My long experience in all matters of matrimonial and family law gives me an intimate knowledge of the processes. I have been fully immersed in family law for so long that I can offer my clients specialized and expert advice in any situation they find themselves in.

I am compassionate to the plight of all my clients and always keep their best interest at heart. I am also, however, aggressive when it comes to looking out for their best efforts and remain tenacious in my fight to ensure their rights are being protected at every possible turn.

Personal interests:

I love to practice family law and spend a majority of my time either helping my clients or sharpening my skills to make sure I am giving the very best legal support that I can offer.
