“Sam did an excellent job of divorce mediation between my ex and myself.  He was very fair to us both and very very patient and understanding. Thank you Sam for making a painful situation as painless as possible!!” – Chris W.

“Sam is a great divorce mediator. He helped me and my ex through a very difficult time. We did not agree on much and at times it got a little heated. Sam stayed calm and always helped achieve what we came in there to do. The end result was wonderful. He always answered phone calls, emails quickly and was always so friendly and helpful. He never ever took one persons side. I have already recommended him to two friends of mine and will do so in the future. If your looking for a great divorce mediator Sam is your man.  Oh and he also met me at a location that was close to me to sign papers. He always made it convenient for me.” – Lindsey J.

“Sam is amazing – a true breathe of fresh air.  He gave me amazing information that helped us make the right decision.  He spent 45 minutes on the phone and took the time to outline the process of divorce mediation. He is as good as it gets and is just a stand up guy.  You hardly ever experience service like this anymore. Thanks again.” – Jesse S.

“I spoke to Sam Anderson over the phone before our initial meeting and, right away, I felt more at ease.  He assured me about some concerns that I had going into the process.  Even though it had been 4 years since the divorce, emotions were high in both of the meetings.  Sam was extremely professional, caring, and helpful walking us through the painful steps of modification.  If I ever needed a divorce mediator again, I would definitely hire Sam Anderson.” – Shannon B.

“Sam mediated my ex’s and my divorce and and did so knowledgeably, thoroughly and patiently. He looked out for both our interests equally, making sure we’d each considered everything in our agreement. He’s a great guy, likable and when I offered him a few more hours’ worth of payment for the additional time he spent coaxing us through, he turned it down. If you’re at the end of your marriage and seeking help getting through the process, I can’t recommend Sam highly enough.” – Bob M.
