I had a problem with this landlord with negotiating the lease, and my friend advised me to get this lawyer,Alan. When I first saw him, I thought he looked young and inexperienced. But within two days, he solved all of my problems. I would recommend this lawyer to everyone.

I am extremely happy with the service that Alan is providing for me and my family. Alan is a very responsible and knowledgeable attorney i ever had! He always answered all of my different questions in a very professional and timely matter. On top of that all of the answers have been right on target as he guided me and my fiancée through our very important and tedious process. When I emailed or texted him after hours in the evening as well as weekends including Sunday he has responded on the same day which in my opinion is extremely unheard of. I have recommend this attorney to my friend and they all were all satisfied and happy with Alan!

Mr. Spivak helped our company settle a case. We owed money to another party, and Mr. Spivak helped settle for less than half of the original amount. He was very thorough in gathering facts and documents before negotiations. Alan was great at staying on top of back-and-forth communication during the negotiation process. He laid out all the facts, and made several recommendations on how to proceed with our case. Mr. Spivak negotiated for less than half of the original amount owed, and we are very happy with the outcome.

I couldn’t have been more pleased with the way Mr. Spivak handled my case. This was a tough situation involving a DUI charge along with a felony weapon charge. Through his experience, his extensive knowledge of court procedures, and his vigorous advocacy of my character and my rights, he was able to negotiate an aggressive plea bargain and have both charges dropped to simple misdemeanors; he also pursued my interests during sentencing and approached the judge, influencing him to minimize my fines and sanctions to an incredibly low level. Throughout the whole process, he saved me a lot of time and money and provided me with legal and moral support and made me feel confident in an out of the courtroom. He also followed-up with me to ensure I am buttoned-up on the post-sentencing process. I am also confident that if this case had to go to trial, he would have defended me fiercely and I would definitely retain him should I need any counsel in the future. If you are looking for serious representation and an attorney who will fight for you efficiently while keeping you informed of all expectations, you owe it to yourself to contact him at once.

I have retained Alan as counsel on various matters from my Lemon Law Issue in which my automobile transmission blew up three times on a brand new car, in addition to a products liability matter on a nationally known company dealing with massage style mattresses. Both cases involved me obtaining all of my money back on the product in addition to additional reimbursement being provided to me. Alan is trustworthy, competent, honest, and above all-REACHABLE!!! When you call Alan, you get Alan. When you email Alan, you get Alan. Above all, a rock solid attorney and person!

Alan possess what anyone wishes to find in a great lawyer: knowledge, professionalism, dedication, excellent communication skills. What sets him above other lawyers out there is his compassion and empathy. He works hard to achieve the best results for his clients and provides emotional support for the turmoil that comes with being involved in any legal matter. He is dedicated to his work and consistently goes beyond the call of duty. I would recommend him over and over again.

I first come in contact with Alan as a voluntary human rights attorney about two years ago. He had since handled two major cases for me. The cases involved citizenship/immigration and a divorce and I must say that Alan is a very humble and dedicated attorney who will go out of his professional way to see that his client get what he or she requires. I have no doubt in recommending him to any prospective person that need an attorney that delivers.

Mr: Alan Spivak recently helped me out with my Deffered Action Process, he was very helpful, patient, honest, nice, and detailed. He explain me step by step what was the process about and told me what I had to do in order for everything to go right. He answer all my question and doubts and left me very satisfied with the way I was treated and represented. After a while I finally got my Deffered Action and I was very thankful because all of this was possible thanks to his help. Mr: Alan Spivak is an honest, trustworthy, and responsible person which you can expose your case and he will know how to guide you and help you so that you can understand the steps to follow. He is a real honest lawyer who always speaks to you with the truth. He is not like other lawyers who just take your money and do not help you out with your case. So thats why I recommend you if you need a lawyer do not hesitate to get him as your lawyer.

Mr. Spivak recently represented me in court regarding a traffic violation. He was able to get the case dismissed and I was honestly blown away. I did not in any way, expect to have my speeding ticket dismissed. I highly recommend obtaining his services.

Mr. Spivak handled my OVI case and I was more than pleased with his services. I was facing a significant amount of jail time and he made sure I did not spend a single day in there. He was very professional and hardworking. Any time I ever wanted an update with my case or had any questions it was never a struggle to reach him. I was always treated with respect and I felt as if he really and honestly cared about my case and fighting to get the best result possible. I would definitely hire him again and would recommend him to anyone.

Alan Spivak was a great lawyer and person to have on my side after I was cited for Paraphernalia. I am applying for professional school so it was something I couldn't have on my record. Alan was extremely honest and helpful throughout the stressful process. He was able to put my anxiety to rest by promptly answering all my questions with great professionalism. My case was eventually dismissed and Alan handled my expungement papers the day of the dismissal. I would recommend Alan to anyone needing a caring, trustworthy, professional lawyer. Thanks for everything!

Mr. Spivak is not only a good lawyer but he's also a great person. Not only did he show personal concern in my case, but he was also affective in helping me and reassuring me. I would highly recommend him as an immigration lawyer.

Mr. Spivak handled a personal injury lawsuit for my wife and I. Not only did he obtain a result that was above what we expected, but his knowledge of the law, responsiveness, and client service are what sets him apart from other attorneys. I would highly recommend Mr. Spivak to anyone who is searching for a great, personable, and driven attorney.

Mr Alan Spivak helped me transfer real estate and personal property ( that I inherited) to my name. He was very professional and prompt in dealing with every issue, that we encountered in a process. He kept me informed of every step, that he made in achieving our goal. I am very satisfied with his services and will use his service again, if needed.

Alan Spivak is a great lawyer! When I had to adjust my status last year, I began to worry as I was denied adjustment a few years ago from a J-1 to F-1 visa. I wasn’t sure if that was going to influence the immigration process or not. After doing some research on my own, I realized that I needed an experienced immigration lawyer. A Russian friend recommended me Alan Spivak, saying he was knowledgeable and very hardworking. I left him a voicemail and he called me back that same day. He asked to come to his office next day. Mr. Spivak evaluated my case and helped me submit my documents within few weeks. I was very worried about my case and could call and email Mr. Spivak during the processing time of the documents. He always returned my calls and answered my emails providing necessary to me explanations. After a successful interview, I became a green card holder 3 months after my documents were submitted. I will definitely use Mr. Spivak’s services applying for my citizenship.
I highly recommend Alan Spivak, he’s the lawyer that cares.

I retained Mr. Spivak for services related to my business. I own a financial institution and have many of my clients claim bankruptcy to which I need to pursue adversary claims in bankruptcy court, followed by pursuing those said claims in state court for passing bad checks and theft. Mr. Spivak always follows up with me the same day I contact him, always answers his phone and not some assistant, and is the most professional attorney I could imagine. I highly recommend him and his law firm for any matter as he is an upstanding, honest, and most ethical attorney. Kudos for such a great guy in the profession!

I had a lease through a car dealership and when I turned it in, they assured me I would not pay any excess charges. 2 months later, I got a very large bill asking for payment. I could not afford the payment and as I understood, was not liable to pay for it. Alan took the time to understand my case, gather all the facts and present them in a logical way to the dealership. Within two weeks, the charges were dropped and I didn't have to pay a penny. Alan is a fantastic lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone.
