I was going through a somewhat messy family case which was bound to end up in trial. I knew I couldn't survive a trial on my own and the opposing party had representation. Although everything was already going in my favor, I could have lost it all in trial. I began my attorney search and had consultation after consultation with attorneys who were more than willing to not fight for the best interests of my son which would have resulted in him being moved to Florida and away from his whole family. I was desperate to find someone who would fight for what was right. I then found Al. He is easy to talk with, relaxes any anxiety you may have, and tells you exactly how he'll help. I never once through the rest of my proceedings felt like I was left to fight alone or in the dark about how my case was progressing. He stood by me through every step and decision. I couldn't be more grateful for having found him.
If you seek an attorney who will be honest, personable, and give it to you straight, Al is the perfect candidate. He will only fight for what is in the best interest of the most important part in the case; the child(ren). If you are seeking an attorney who will fight for your own selfish wants, Al is not right for you and there are plenty of others out there who would be more than happy to do anything you want of them for the money. I have already, and will continue, to recommend anyone to Al who needs the help of an honest attorney who always keeps the kid(s) as the focus of the fight.

Alan was very comforting and easy to work with. He did what every divorce attorney should do - remove the worry. He was very professional throughout the entire divorce process. I

Mr. Spiegle is truly one of a kind! His 100% devotion to our particular case was outstanding. Mr. Spiegel stopped at nothing to make sure my daughter and I were comfortable with the information he presented us, as well as making sure we understood every angle of it. He took the time to make us feel safe in our journey, and feel confident the outcome would be one we'd be comfortable with. The way Mr. Spiegel broke things down for us,talked to us, and really listened to our needs and concerns was reassuring and promising. He never gave us any doubt, it was optimism and sincere empathy for my daughter and I right form the start. There was no rock left unturned in this emotional case at all. He went above and beyond the call of any attorney to be prepared and on top of things. Mr. Spiegel is not your ordinary attorney at all. He really sits and listens to you without reservations! He views things from a variety of standpoints that I believe help to make him the great attorney that he is today. He truly cares about his clients and wants the best for each of them. In this day and age, you don't see that in most attorneys. The majority of them claim you as a number or a cash income, and nothing more! Not this one.... We all had our ups and downs with this court case, and were thrown many different kinds of surprises, that left us feeling scared and unsure of things,yet Mr. Spiegel never gave up on himself or his abilities to do his best. He did just that too, he showed us a side of life that would be calming and beautiful full of no harm or fear. He proved to us that there really is a silver lining to every cloud. No more looking over our shoulders and second guessing what will take place next. It was Mr. Spiegel that helped us get our lives back in shape and it was his sincere compassion and heart felt drive for my daughters happiness and freedom that made all the difference for us. In court we ran into some very unexpected hurdles ,but Mr. Spiegel was able to use them to our advantage and turn things around for the better. He was able to improvise in the hardest of times, and adapt to the many road blocks we ran a crossed. In the end, we may not have walked away winning the entire case as we had wished for; however what we did walk away with was our freedom, our peace of mind, and our being a family once again. A feeling of closeness, love, and trust. Weeks later, my daughters life became even brighter when Mr. Speigel helped us present a name change to the court system, and she was granted the right to claim her stepfathers last name. The outcome overall was beneficial for all involved because Mr. Spiegel took the time to sit with us ,listen to us, and believe in us all the way around. His faith in us is and was the best thing that ever happened in our lives. Without his professional aspect on things,his trust and dedication to our fears and our concerns, and without his generous heart, we never would be able to speak of things today. I truly believe in my heart if it wasn't for Mr. Spiegel we wouldn't be alive today. Mr. Alan Spiegel is a fantastic attorney, one who will touch the lives of those he comes in contact with, and one who will not leave you disappointed! I whole heartedly recommend this gentleman as a representative to anyone. He does an amazing job.

Al made an effort to help me understand what was happening in my case, and answered every question I had.

When I first went to see Al, I was put at ease with his honesty.
He is very genuine and his first impression leaves you feeling that you can place your trust in him. He handled a VERY sensitive probate estate for me that was a year+ long ordeal. His level of professionalism, integrity and efficiency are unmatched. He goes above and beyond to help the average person navigate the legal system. His compassion, generosity, kind heart and easy going way make him stand out amongst his peers. The personal values he lives by are what you really need during your time of need.
