When I first brought my complicated, long and drawn out case to Sam Stoorman's table, I expected them to do what most had, shake their heads and turn me away. I had attempted to file on my own after needing a restraining order and a restriction of parenting. I quickly discovered that I needed help after several failed attempts of removing my children from clearly hostile and dangerous environment with their father. After meeting with Mr. Stoorman, I turned over my stacks of papers and accumulated court documents and knew that I finally had found a good one (I had several bad lawyer's to this point). They were able to suggest ideas such as the use of a Child Family Investigator to help our case. They also helped me to obtain info that I did not have access to and just didn't know how to get my hands on due to all the red tape and legal issues. Nicole has also been great about any follow-up questions since court. They were highly professional and were able to make the process quick to help me remove my children before anything really bad happened to them. I now have full custody and decision making of the children and they are both doing well and adjusting to a more laid back lifestyle with their step dad and myself where we are able to provide stability and amazing opportunities such as travel, sports and most important, college!
When I began my journey to start a new life on my own, separate from my husband, I was terrified by what I expected my experience to be while getting divorced. I'd received rave reviews of Samuel J. Stoorman and Associates from a family friend and I couldn't have asked for better people to be by my side every step of the way. They guided me with excellent educated advice which allowed my focus to remain on picking myself up and starting again. I had the true pleasure of working closest with Annalies. What a gem! I will be forever grateful for this helpful, knowledgeable, comforting team. Thank you for everything.
I highly recommend Sam Stoorman and his associates for any legal counsel regarding divorce. I had been literally blindsided emotionally and Mr. Stoorman's compassion for my situation gave me hope when I had believed there was no hope. During my divorce he was upfront with me from the beginning about the possible proceedings that would occur and how the cooperation, or lack thereof, of both parties would influence final expenses. He and his team worked diligently to make sure that everything in my divorce went as fairly as the law allowed. Although Mr. Stoorman and his staff were always very professional, quite often I felt like I was talking to a family friend. Mr. Stoorman and his team had the experience and knowledge base to understand what I was going through and they were there to help me navigate the difficult issues and start again. During all court proceedings it was clear that I was in very capable hands. Mr. Stoorman and his associates were true advocates for me and my children.
Your firm was the most helpful and professional firm I have ever dealt with. I worked with several other attorneys in the past, and my difficult case proved to be too much for them. From the front desk all the way to the court date, your team performed exceptionally well and I always knew I could trust the expertise of everyone involved. My case concluded with a great outcome which has given my family more peace than we have ever had. Your patience, research, advice, and representation are first-rate and I have strongly recommended you to anyone who needs family legal services.
