also known as Spencer, Kevin

About me

I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and would not want to live anywhere else in the world. I consider it a dynamice and eclectic city with lots of activity and where lots of things happen daily.  I am an avid Dallas area sports fan - I bleed blue and silver on Sundays. I am a MFFL (Mavs Fan For Life). I have stood with the Rangers through all of their down years and through today and I support the Stars, even though I do not know as much about hockey.  

I am married with 3 amazing and awesome kids that have grown up to be even better young adults and human beings.  I do this job for them and because I absolutely love it.  If you love your job, you will never work a day in your life", well, I am living that phrase to the fullest.  

I am honored and proud each and every time a client decides to hire me over all of the other and many attorneys in the area and Texas to choose from.  I and all of us at my law firm Spencer Law, P.C. strive to make each client feel that honor and pride every time we deal with them.

Thank you for reviewing my AVVO listing and I invite you to review our website at now and often.
