Client Reviews


I am so grateful to Sam for the amazing job he did on my family and property case! I had already been to another lawyer previously who did not have a good handle on the situation and by the time I came to Sam it was all looking a bit dismal. However, Sam did a thorough investigation and managed to have it turned around. He fought my case with such eloquence and knowledge that left the opposition mumbling for words. I highly recommend Sam, I was told upfront of what my costs would be, no paying for each email and phone call and available for my phone calls and emails. Thank you Sam you’re an absolute gem!!

Sam’s experience, intelligence, integrity and compassion shines through in every conversation. I came to rely heavily on Sam’s calm and considered voice of reason, he kept me grounded and provided frank, open and honest feedback. When times were tough, emotional and the other side took the low road, Sam was strategic in his guidance. He always took the high road and kept the focus on what was best for my children, the outcomes and the sanctity of my relationship with them. Because of that, I again get to hear my children’s laughter and joy echo through the house.

Samuel David takes family law to an entire new level of representation. I was enduring a very hostile parenting and financial settlement situation, which was only settled by Sam in a professional and orderly manner. Previous lawyers failed to achieve what Sam achieved for me, and had I not found him, I would still be fighting with lawyers of less calibre trying to achieve an outcome. He’s more than just representation, he’s a coach that ensures you are on the right track, and his communication about your case is clear and concise. His advice, patience and guidance were absolutely without a doubt my greatest assets having him as my family law specialist. His dedication to what he does to help you is truly admirable, and he deserves more than 5 stars

by Mati


Sam was exceptional, he would always get back to me with any concerns, very responsive, professional and knowledgeable. My file was very complicated with multiple properties and businesses involved a very difficult matter which he resolved with professionalism whilst always looking out for my wellbeing due to my ill health. Highly recommend Joseph David Lawyers.

“I had a great experience working with Samuel & Ashlee for my family law property and parenting matters. They both made a tough process relatively simple for me to navigate (something that worried me with my neurodevelopmental disorder). Both Samuel & Ashlee were easy to communicate with & answered my concerns in a prompt manner. A special thanks to Ashlee for being approachable, knowledgeable and for working hard to get a good result for me. I would definitely recommend working with both Samuel and Ashlee. I’d give 6 stars if I could!

“Sam is amazing, he has a wealth of knowledge and has helped and supported me immensely through what was a difficult family matter. Sam was companionate and motivated by my best interests entirely. Sam achieved a fantastic result for me, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I would recommend Sam to anybody looking for a family lawyer.”

by Kelly


“Samuel David helped me through a very nasty separation and despite outrageous demands from my ex partner, Sam managed to negotiate a very favourable Property Settlement for me without the need to go to trial. Sam was extremely professional, attending to every detail with sound and prompt advice. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone for any legal issues without hesitation”.

by Melinda


“The minute I walked into the office and sat down with Samuel I knew I was in the right place. I was kept up to date with all the proceedings. Samuel explained all the processes to me in detail and his professionalism was outstanding. I cant recommend Sam enough.”

by Virginia


“I could not have been happier with my experience, particularly with Samuel David. He is an absolute rocket! He certainly knows family law extremely well and actually cares about his clients and their rights. I would never have obtained the settlement I did without Sam and his expertise. I never felt unsure with Sam by my side. Thank you.”
