Samantha’s firm, Trial Lawyers of the Palm Beaches, is handling multiple legal matters for me. This review, therefore, is only as to Ms. Vacciana’s role in my criminal case, where she played a very crucial role as co-counsel.
Facing ten years in prison, and additional related legal matters, I had an extremely complex situation that required knowledge of a variety of areas of the law, including Family Law, negligence, Appeals, and medical malpractice. Successfully representing me in the criminal case required this diverse legal savvy since the issues were interrelated.
I was facing ten years in prison and while there was never a prima facie case against me under the statute I was charged, in my opinion, proving that required highly complex discovery, aggressive and unrelenting pursuit of justice on my behalf and exceptional negotiation ability. Adding to the stress of my criminal case, family law matters were occurring in another case that placed my child in danger of great bodily harm.
Samantha is a unique attorney in that she has a calming presence and uncanny ability to set realistic expectations for me as a client, while keeping me level-headed in the face of what appeared to be a hopeless and unmitigated disaster. However, her counsel and outcomes achieved proved to be spot-on. Having access to her understanding of the legal system gave me great peace of mind as the legal process took place. Sam’s uniqueness is that she is a tremendously calming, caring and compassionate professional who placed her client’s interests first. While possessing such compassionate qualities, I witnessed firsthand she is a fiercely aggressive litigator with an innate ability to deliver complex arguments before a court in an easy to understand and concise fashion that prevents crucial issues from being ignored.
By my experience in the criminal case (and there are three other cases pending that I will not review until the outcomes are final), the outcome of my life and my child’s life could have been catastrophic. I have Attorney Vacciana to thank for preventing that.
Facing a maximum criminal sentence of ten years in prison, the plea before I terminated Sam’s predecessor was 3 years in prison. Through relentless discovery that helped to exonerate me and expert negotiation ability, Ms. Vacciana played a crucial role in achieving a plea that was a class 2 misdemeanor. In the end, it was time served, no felony conviction, six months of probation, and my right to vote, be a Dad, and be gainfully employed have all been preserved. I thank God that he gave me the wisdom to hire this lawyer and I thank God Sam is in my life.
Over the course of my case, it also became very clear that she is highly regarded in the legal community and appears to be very well respected by her colleagues. If my experience with the ethical, dedicated, and aggressive approach to the practice of law is any indication, it comes as no surprise she appears to be so well respected by her colleagues.
My case was extremely complex. Whether you are facing a highly complex case such as mine, or a more typical legal matter, I would not hesitate for a second to strongly recommend this principled, compassionate, and aggressive litigator to be your advocate in the Courtroom.
Her work is exceptional.
Samantha (Co-counsel), picked up my family law case less than three weeks to the hearing. Samantha and Angie, WON the entire case!!! Samantha’s cross defense of the witness on stand was dynamic. OUTSTANDING REPRESENTATION!!!!!! They, explain legal jargon to their clients, maps out the entire case, and prepares their clients for the hearing. These two attorneys needs to be on a board to weed out HORRIBLE attorneys in Palm Beach County. I felt my children future was in the best hands and I could finally sleep at night knowing these attorneys was on the job 24 hours a day. I will be eternally grateful to this two attorneys forever… AMEN!!! Once again thank you, thank you thank you…… Shantey
