„I was dealing with DCFS and had been fighting them for 18 months. All the allegations were false, yet i could not get my son back. I hired Sam, and he worked miracles and got my child back home and the case closed. The price was so reasonable and the outcome is worth every penny. I would definitely refer anyone to this firm. No nonsense, No frills and no price gouging bur you get results.“

„Working People's Law Center is very helpful and genuinely care about you. I am so grateful for their time and help. They have the best communication with their clients and always update them with every detail or change. Working People's Law Center is simply the best.“

„These are people who generally care and try their hardest to help. I have had the pleasure of knowing Art Goldberg personally as well as doing business with him. A great person to have in your corner.“

„I got my greencard today thanks to the amazing support from Sam and his team, Gregoire and Gabby. Everything to do with the my application was made simple and clear for me to understand and the costs were more than reasonable. I did see a couple of stuffy lawyers before going to Sam and the contrast was miles apart. They have offered a friendly family feel to the whole process and I am forever grateful! Thank you guys! I will be recommending you to anyone who asks!“

Working People's Law Center

Unlike other law firms, our legal fees are billed on a sliding scale based on each client's income and the complexity of each case. We don't bill you "in quarter hour increments" just to have a telephone call with you. That's ridiculous! Our reasonable fees and excellent work create long lasting relationships with our clients. We frequently serve the children of clients we worked for decades ago.

Our core areas of practice are family law, criminal law, and civil rights law. If you are arrested for civil disobedience, we will represent you for free!
