About me

     Mr. Spencer began  his career in Chicago, where he practiced in  the areas of bankruptcy, creditors' rights and business litigation.

     After relocating to California, Mr. Spencer first became Assistant General Counsel to USA Petroleum where he defended the company in civil litigation and advised senior management on regulator compliance. Mr. Spencer then started his own practice. Some of the cases he has handled recently include:

     Settling on appeal an award of attorney fees in favor of one faction of a commercial /residential project organized under the Davis-Stirling Common Interest Development Act ; and

     Settling employment litigation on appeal after the trial attorney was placed on involuntary inactive enrollment by the California State Bar.

     Mr. Spencer has been the attorney of record in several published appeals in Illinois and California and has successfully argued in the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Seventh and Ninth Circuits.

      Mr. Spencer is a member of the Federal Bar Association, the Beverly Hills Bar Association, the Appellate Courts Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association and the Council of Appellate Lawyers of the American Bar Association.

     In 2008, Mr. Spencer authored a two-part article, entitled " Multidistrict Litigation." The article appeared in the January and April issues of New Matter, the official publication of the State Bar section on Intellectual Property. He also is a contributor to a book on multidistrict litigation.

     In 2009, Mr. Spencer served as a delegate to the Conference of California Bar Associations.

     In 2010, Mr. Spencer authored an article for the Los Angeles Daily Journal about a recent U.S. Supreme Court Case that concerned class actions.

     Last year, Mr. Spencer obtained a reversal of a federal court judgment that dismissed a lawsuit for improper venue. On January 10, 2014  he obtained a reversal of a state trial court order that stayed enforcement of a $700,000 judgment on appeal, without posting an appeal bond.

     Mr. Spencer also prepared a revision to section 1856 of the California Code of Civil Procedure (the Parol Evidence Rule) that deals with the interpretation of contracts. Mr. Spencer's revision was signed in to law by Gov. Jerry Brown on August 12, 2013.
