Responsive and knowledgeable does not equate to good
Posted by a client
I was a client of this attorney in 2014. Rather than this attorney representing my needs to opposing counsel, she relayed their demands to me and tried to convince me why it was a good deal. This resulted in my inability to get an equitable deal for me and my children. I do not recommend this attorney to family or friends.
I hired Cobie Spevak a couple of years ago regarding a custody case. Not only did she not handle my case well, she also consistently gave me bad information. She would tell me that it was my holiday with my child and I would call to enforce my rights only to learn she had given me bad information, which was humiliating and painful. She also convinced me to plead guilty to a related case that I was wholly innocent of and I deeply regret that decision. Her poor representation caused me a lot of heartache and complications that I know now were unnecessary. I eventually found another excellent lawyer to undo the damage she had caused. I would never use her again and feel as though she did a terrible disservice to me and my family.
Ms. Spevak was really responsive to my questions and kept me current on everything going on in the case. I achieved a great result and was able to do so with what I considered to be a very reasonable fee. Ms. Spevak is someone I would recommend to anyone having any kind of family law problem.
I have had the pleasure of working with Cobie at our firm and can say, without hesitation, that she does an outstanding job for her clients. She is very knowledgeable and an excellent advocate for her clients.
