Honest, Practical Advice

The most important relationships in your life are those with your family, especially your spouse and your children. When these relationships become strained, and personal conflicts turn into legal proceedings, you need honest, practical advice.

In such difficult times, many people will be quick to offer their opinions. But reliable insight and clear direction can be given only by someone who takes the time to listen to you, and who has the experience to understand the whole situation: legal, financial, logistical, and psychological.

Sam Colletti has the legal experience and personal compassion to give you the honest, practical advice you need when family relationships are at stake.

Intelligent, Effective Representation

Truly effective legal representation boils down to three dynamics: your lawyer’s relationship with you, the client; your lawyer’s dealings with the opposing attorney; and your lawyer’s presentation to the court.

To build a trusting attorney-client relationship, your lawyer must treat you with courtesy and respect, must be accessible to you, and must communicate with you in a way that is understandable and consistent. In dealing with opposing counsel, your lawyer should be firm but ethical. And in presenting arguments to the court, your lawyer must precisely define your goals and then help you tell your story thoroughly.

Sam Colletti knows that intelligent, effective representation depends on cultivating his clients’ trust, the respect of his colleagues, and credibility with the court.
