Testimonials

I retained Simon for some legal work. In addition to providing valuable advice, he was accessible, pleasant and professional. His rates were very fair. I would use Simon again and am happy to recommend him to others.

Simon is helpful, fair, and very meticulous.
Elli Fischer Independent Translator, Self-Employed
The folks at Sample & Testing, P.C. are fantastic to work with. They explained things in a way I could understand, so that I could make the best decision possible.
John DoeConstruction ContractorKansas City, MO
I would like to recommend Mr. Simon Jackson as a lawyer and a professional translator. I have known Simon for a few years, and we have worked together on an oversight committee. Simon is professional, exact and prompt. Simon works in a wide variety of fields and is knowledgeable in every legal issue he deals with. Simon is very fluent in Hebrew and English, and has strong language skills so the documents he produces are precise, and convey the original meaning in a beautifully worded manner. Simon is one of the nicest people I know, and his enthusiasm and cheerfulness make even the most tedious endeavors fun to accomplish.
Yoel BogochPostdoc at UCSD, Greater San Diego Area
Thank you very much for your critical assistance and effective negotiating. Â I like the contract very much. More rent would be nice of course, but I would rather keep the rent the same and have the tenants continue using the apartment, and avoid the headaches, time, and costs of finding new tenants. Â I rely on your wonderful negotiating skills to deal with this.
David FichtenbergSeattle, USA
Simon helped me to draw up a contract. His work was done very quickly and efficiently. He was able to provide me with the service within 24 hours which was fantastic. His expert knowledge and great value was unbeatable. Thank you!
Ruth CohenTrainee Analyst and AssistantGroup CFO,
I would recommend Simon without any reservation. I used him for legal matters concerning a real estate purchase as well as an employment contract review. In both cases, I benefited from the letters he wrote, changes he made, and the additional clauses he suggested. He is very professional and knowledgeable about one’s legal rights.
Richard SaffernVice PresidentStrategic Business Development & Marketing at BedBug.com
My business wouldn’t be where it is today without Sample & Testing. They’re simply the best.
Mike BrownFounder & CEOMajorcorpTopeka, KS
I just want to say how amazing you were holding our hand and walking us through the contract and protecting our interests and above all your professionalism and menshlichkeit in billing us, a non profit.
Scott ApfelbaumAdministrative DirectorOrayta – Isralight (R.A.)
It was an excellent job. Everyone involved was extremely impressed and had only minor changes. I had the most – mainly stylistic. You will find the final text attached for your interest. Thank you again for the fine work. Dear Micky, please find attached the bill for the translator’s work. As you know, he did an excellent job, on a difficult piece and within an extremely short period of time….
