I contacted this firm after an auto accident. Mr. Sam and his staff were very professional. Mr. Sam took the time to talk to me about my auto accident and the claims process. Overall, I felt comfortable talking to him and his staff because they were very friendly and helpful. I am in the California Air National Guard and would recommend any of my friends or family to contact Mr. Sam if they are ever in a car accident.

Jill C., Salida, CA - Very professional.

Let me start by saying that Roeuth has been one of the best experiences I’ve had with law firms. From the initial call to the end of my experience, he was very hands on and professional. He was very responsive to all my calls and gave me clear answers to all my questions. There were times when it felt like I had a million questions and he was excellent at answering them all. He did a great job with my case and I was very satisfied with his services. If you ever need an attorney, I would definitely recommend him. I wouldn’t hesitate to call this firm again if I was in another accident.

Andrew H., San Diego, CA - Great personal injury attorney.

First off, I would like to thank you for your patience over the phone with me as I was literally a mess in how to describe the accident. Second, your professionalism over the phone to calm me down and to go into great detail about the accident was precision on your behalf. As a Veteran of the U.S. Army I would recommend your law offices to everyone in need of an expert Attorney. Thank you for your absolute patience with me!

Ernesto R., Lathrop, CA - I consulted wiht Mr. Sam.

I was referred to Mr. Sam by a friend when I was involved in an accident. He listened to me and offered advice. I hired him for my case and with his help, everything turned out great in my favor. He was professional and courteous with me at all times. He was responsive whenever I had a question, which I think is a must when dealing with such matters. I would recommend Mr. Sam’s services to friends and family in the future.

Alex A., Tracy, CA - Professional.

Roeuth provides excellent service to the customers, he knows his work and has great knowledge to provide you with the best advice to suit your needs. If you’re looking for a great lawyer, you don’t need to look anywhere else. Consult with the best and receive the best.

Arturo S., Merced, CA - Excellent service.

Roeuth was a pleasure to work with and was professional throughout our entire experience with him. He was very responsive to our calls and always gave us great advice. He tells you exactly what you need to know about your case and fights for you until the very end. When my mom was in a car accident, he was very hands on with her case. He took care of all her paperwork, handled all her insurance calls and got her the settlement she deserved. Since we didn’t know what to do during her accident, it was comforting to know that we had an attorney that was knowledgeable and took care of everything for us. I definitely recommend him.

Saline H., Modesto, CA - Professionalism at its best!

I am beyond pleased with the services rendered to me. They are very professional and very quick. The paralegal, Paola, is amazing! All my questions were answered to perfection and I am very pleased with all their help! Highly recommended.

Laura B., Stockton, CA - Excellent staff.

I had a car accident and was referred to Roeuth Sam by a friend. Once I contacted him, I left a voice message and he returned the call within 10 minutes which is always a good sign. I explained to him everything that had happen, and I could see he had a vast knowledge of this field. Signed up and went through the process and everything was always explained, and calls returned quickly. The whole process didn’t take that long and the results were great. I hope to never be in the situation again but if I was, there isn’t any other attorney I would contact but Roeuth Sam.

Anthony S., Stockton, CA - Excellent results.

Roeuth is quick to get back to you with any questions or concerns you have. He’s also really knowledgeable as well. I highly recommend him to anyone who’s needs a lawyer for personal injury.

Jacqueline S., Merced, CA - Quick response time.

Roeuth was always so thorough and hands on with his clients. In my experience, attorneys normally rely on their assistants or someone else’s notes. That was never the case with Roeuth. He wanted a clear and accurate view of each case, so he’d go through everything. Consistent communication with clients, whether there was news or no news. Always pushed to get his clients what they deserved.

Cassandra P. , Manteca, CA - Thorough and hands on.

Roeuth was very helpful when my daughter had court. He helped prepare her for the whole process. It helps to know you have an attorney who is willing to assist.

Mai C., Salida, CA - Helpful attorney.

Best personal injury law firm in the Central Valley! My friends and family have told me horror stories about their experiences with other (well recognized firms), but I have had the total opposite experience with attorney Sam. He is honest, reliable and very intelligent. He fights for his clients. His years of experience fighting against big insurance companies give him the upper hand when negotiating for his injured clients. I absolutely recommend him to all of my family and friends. Thanks Mr. Sam for expanding your law firm to Northern California and helping all of us in need of an honest, hardworking lawyer on our side!

Sal P., Manteca, CA - Very professional!

I was in desperate need of some legal help after getting into a car accident. I had a ton of questions and didn’t want to risk doing anything the wrong way. I found Roeuth and he was such a lifesaver. He was very informative and gave me the peace of mind I needed. If you get into any trouble and need help, call Roeuth!

Khemera S., Modesto, CA - Excellent legal service.

I had the opportunity to work with Roeuth on a legal matter and he was amazing! He was very helpful, knowledgeable and most importantly trustworthy.  He was very attentive and always available to answer any questions. Thank you Roeuth for being a great attorney!

Vichet S., Modesto, CA - Kept me informed at all times.

Received consultation from Mr. Sam Roeuth regarding a car accident that occurred in my apartment complex.  He is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy, definitely an attorney you can count on for your personal injury needs.

Sam C., Modesto, CA - Knowledgeable and trustworthy.

Roeuth is an amazing person, he always gets in contact with you. Every time I need him he’s there for me within the hour. He’s very passionate about his job and it shows when you are consulting with him.

Monica R., Modesto, CA - Very passionate.

Roeuth Sam is here to help you get what you need from practitioners such as acupuncturists, physical therapists, chiropractors to help you better in your mind, body, and spirit. He also breaks down what the law means and gives information on his blog that is worth learning about especially what actions to take if something happens to you. He is a trustworthy resource and advocate for his clients. Give him a call and he will help you out!

Eva L., San Diego, CA - Very informative.

Roeuth Sam is by far very attentive and helpful in his job… being in a car accident is the worst experience followed by stress and worries, but Roeuth makes all that stress just go away. He said, “focus on getting better and I’ll take care of the rest!” Wow… excellent service! Highly recommended… very caring, very helpful and goes above and beyond.

Marla R., Turlock, CA - Very caring and helpful.

Roeuth is a detailed, knowledgeable, conscientious, and tenacious attorney, all wrapped up in a kind and friendly package – pretty much everything I could hope for in an attorney. He helped with a dog biting case where the offending party denied it even happened, but got the photographic evidence and the homeowners policy of said party to get compensation for the bite. I highly recommend Roeuth for any personal injury issues you may have, regardless of the size of the case!

Rainier T., San Diego, CA - Very detailed and tenacious.

The best personal injury lawyer in and around the Modesto area. He will let you know the process and fight for you. He will provide you with the best representation. I am a retired Army Veteran and would recommend him to any of my friends or family.

Kenneth S., Salida, CA - He will fight for you!

Roeuth is quick to get back to you with any questions or concerns you have.  He’s also really knowledgeable as well. I highly recommend him to anyone who’s needs a lawyer for personal injury.

Jackie C., Manteca, CA - Quick response!

Excellent attorney!  Straightforward, no beating around the bush type of guy.  He will tell you how he sees it.  If you are looking for someone that can get the job done, Roeuth Sam is your guy.  If you follow his Facebook, there are also great tips that he provides as well.  Keep up the good work Mr. Sam!

John L., Sacramento, CA - Straightfoward!

My mom got into a pretty bad car accident and I recommended that she let Mr. Roeuth Sam handle her case for her. She was happy she did. He provided excellent and professional service throughout the process. Everything was completed as fast as possible and mom got a settlement that was higher than we expected! Although I wish she would have never gotten into the accident in the first place, she and I are both glad Roeuth Sam was there for us when we needed it most. #GREATJOB #ThankYouSoMuch

Jim S., Turlock, CA - Very satisfied.

Mr. Sam was recommended by a friend to us. So far, he has been professional, knowledgeable and seems to care for his clients. He explained and answer all our questions and inquires we had about our case. He makes you feel comfortable and is available at all times. We felt confident that he would be able to take care of us. Thank you.

Annie P., San Francisco, CA - Easy to talk to.

I am glad I contacted Mr. Sam’s office. He has been great. He takes the time to explain everything. He helped me find the medical treatment I needed. He walked me through my entire case and was always a professional. I was completely satisfied with his legal representation. I would go back to him if I am ever in another accident and I would not hesitate to refer friends or family to his office.

Dara O., Salida, CA - Very patient.

I was involved in car accident last year in September. I had no idea what to do as the accident was putting me into stress mode, even though it was not my fault. I was referred to Law firm of R. Sam by a friend and was impress how he guide me through this situation, keeping in touch with me, and answering all questions that needed to be answer. As this is ongoing case, I will be back soon with update review. If you need an attorney, please don’t hesitate to contact R. Sam. He got my back and definitely will have your back.

Sarom N., Modesto, CA - Good service.
