Sam Neschis is an Exceptional Lawyer- You want him on your side! Finding an average attorney is easy; finding a good attorney is more complicated; however, the journey to identify an excellent attorney can be particularly challenging.  Sam Neschis is an excellent attorney. His unassuming, calm nature makes him the perfect legal ally and resource for any organization. Working with Sam allows you to reap all the benefits of having a legal titan on your side without the negative personality stereotypes commonly associated with one.   The group Neschis and Tolitano LLC, and Sam, in particular, is an excellent fit for organizations or individuals who require a fully engaged legal team that is commercially astute, exceptional in their skill, and driven to find the best solutions for their clients.  If legal representation at the highest level is a non-negotiable for you, then Sam Neschis and his team would be an excellent match! Our organization has been extremely pleased with working with them. Sam Neschis has the uncommon ability to explain the most complex legal concepts and processes in simple plain English.  He does not patronize or condescend and is always honest with you about your position and options. It feels like Sam and his team make a conscious effort not to add to any stress the client may or may not be feeling.  In addition to this, Sam has a masterful handle on the commercial landscape, which will contribute to your team's advantage. Our company has used the services of Neschis and Tolitano on a diverse range of matters.  We have never been disappointed and will continue to work with Sam Neschis exclusively.  We trust his judgment and can always depend on him, to be honest, as he will refer matters outside of his scope to colleagues who specialize in those areas because he cares about his clients' overall legal health and wellbeing.   I do not usually write such lengthy reviews; however, the positive experience we have had with this firm compels me to do so.  I hope business managers, owners, directors, and administrators read this to inform their decision about whom they select to be their organizations' legal counsel. These leaders would be doing their organizations a disservice not to choose this group.  Sam Neschis will always leverage his legal expertise to ensure your company fulfills its commercial goals and will direct your legal affairs such that your organization's commercial interests are both bolstered and protected. When you work with Sam Neschis, you work with a consummate professional who is intelligent, unproblematic, honest, very responsive. Sam is as pleasant as he is smart. It would be almost impossible or to have a positive working relationship with him. The decision to work with Sam Neschis and his team is a very positive and beneficial one for any leader or business owner to make for their organization.
