About Me

After graduating from the University of Maryland School of Law in 2002, Spencer M. Hecht began his path towards developing a boutique family law and criminal defense firm founded on principles of unmatched work ethic, comprehensive knowledge of the law, and the real practicalities of the family dynamic. Mr. Hecht’s extensive divorce and child custody experience, aggressive approach, and high rate of success, has allowed him and his firm to become a strong presence in Montgomery County and the surrounding counties. Hecht & Associates is now the largest family-based law firm in downtown Silver Spring, MD.


A native of Montgomery County himself, Mr. Hecht and his firm are deeply rooted in the community. Mr. Hecht takes great pride not only in his trial experience and success, but the relationships he has formed with local judges, lawyers, and business owners throughout the years. After moving the firm from DC to Silver Spring in 2005, Mr. Hecht is committed to a long-term presence in the Metropolitan area. In 2011, Mr. Hecht relocated the firm to an incredible new space located adjacent to the Silver Spring Metro. See our website for more information.
