Mr. Spivack is a nice guy, upon first meeting him I found him to be polite and nice but I didn't like the way that he handled my case, he is not a lawyer who will try his best to get you the best results. I don't settle for nothing but the best and with lawyers being really expensive I hope to get the best. I will say that Mr. Spivack needed to do more for me and didn't.

I had a 2nd DUI pretty close to my last one with BAC .33 and an accident. No officer mistakes or blood work issues but Attorney Spivack kept hammering and hammering away at the DA. Attorney Spivack didn't give up on me and it paid off. Looking at a year in jail, I only spent TWO HOURS. Kept my job. Thank you Mr. Spivack.

2nd Chance after a 2nd Dui. I was nailed during one of the Labor Day checkpoints. My 2nd dui in 3 years. Blew over .10. Thought I was going to jail and lose my job because I drive for work. Mr. Spivack took my call on a Sunday. Gave me honest info about the DMV and my license and fought hard. I got a temporary license and kept my job. He never passed me off to an associate, he never promised anything he didn't know to be true just to get my money. Took all my calls, there were alot and answered all my questions even when he had to repeat himself so I could understand. He took the time to talk to my wife after I gave him permission. He knows the DAs and judges and they know him. He treated me like I was important, but more IMPORTANT he got the charges REDUCED. Got my 2nd chance. I already sent a co worker to him, I would refer him to my family and friends. Thank you Attorney Spivack.

I was accused of felony driving under the influence and drug possession and I had a suspended license. The district attorney was pushing and pushing he wanted at least 3 years of state prison and probably more because of my prior criminal record and what I had in the car. I talked to a bunch of attorneys, I knew more than most of them. I called Thomas Spivack and that changed my life. He was straightforward but not judgmental and he is knowledgable. He wants to and does help his clients. He gave me a payment plan. What I really liked was that he investigated and attacked the reason the officer stopped my car and tore apart the police report. He didn't back down even though it took him more than 4 court appearances, maybe more that is what I remember. An excellent lawyer, he knows the system and......... all my charges were DISMISSED. Thank you Thomas Spivack you saved me from prison.

Gottat Dui arrest. Upset and didn't know where to go for honest and legit help. Got alot of letters and spoke with alot of lawyers- did my research- but didn't feel comfortable until I talked to Thomas Spivack. He took my call personally and spent ALOT of time discussing my case. I must have talked to him three times before I hired him. He worked hard on my case, and always updated me after all the hearings. He always returned my calls, always met me at court right when he told me. MOST IMPORTANT above all - he knows the law and the DUI and court and DMV processes. He got my case reduced to a speeding ticket from DUI!! If you want a hard working, honest, attorney who arranges payments plans and gets the results you need then you should do what I did and hire Thomas Spivack.

Drank too much, car was impounded. I need my car and license for work. This guy spent almost an hour on the phone in our first conversation and two other conversations of at least 45 minutes before I signed up with him. He never rushed me. He always returned my calls, spent more time to explain everything and kept me updated. He went to court for me 4-5 times,and did the DMV case. DA's respect him, but he is persistent with them. Best payment plan and a fixed fee even better was the result - dismissal and minimum fines and I was DUI. I have referred him to co-workers. Hire him and it will be the best decision you make.

I was on probation,second offense.Looking at jail time, big fine, and losing my job. This guy knows the courts and the system. He went to court many times to get me a great result and reduction in the charges with time served and a low fine. Worth the fee which was competitive anyways. Straight shooter.

I dont know what those others posts are about. Mr. Spivack told me exactly when and where to be at court, and was never late. I called him a lot and he was always patient returning my calls. The judges and prosecutors seem to know him. Not only did he get my charges reduced but he charged me way less than the other lawyers I spoke with wanted to charge me. He went to court four times until he got me the best deal he could. I have already recommended him to some family members.

I recommend Mr. Spivack wholeheartedly. He thoroughly investigated my case and found errors made by the police and persuaded the prosecutor to drop my case. He was always available and kept me informed. I'm surprised by the two negative reviews. Both reviews have exactly the same ratings - it's probably the same person who expected a guaranteed outcome.
