I thought I was ok with 3 beers in about 4 hours but got pulled over for weaving. Cops said I failed the field test but I thought I did ok. Referred to this lawyer by a family friend. Spivack jumped on it right away. He persuaded the prosecutor and the case was never filed. I already referred him to a friend. Glad I called him to make the situation right.

I have both commercial and regular licenses, a lot at stake. Would lose my job if I lost my licenses. Spoke with Mr. Spivack after talking to a bunch of other lawyers but he stood out from the rest. Very knowledgeable and no bull. I made the best decision for my career and family. Cops said I made a right at a stop sign without stopping first. Mr. Spivack wanted to confirm why the police said they stopped me. he personally went out to the scene, took photos, and also discovered a yield sign that didn't require a stop that I never saw and the police never mentioned. He convinced the DA to drop the case. I can continue to feed my family.

Theft wit two priors and looking at felony and prisontime not just county jail. I was scared and angry. I sought counsel from my pastor to support me and my family and then knew I had to find legal help. I felt I had no future. I rejoice in finding Attorney Spivack. He changed everything for me and my family. He talked with me about what could be done and what might happen. He kept me informed. That big electronics blue and yellow mega store said I switched tags but I did not switch anything. Attorney Spivack investigated the entire situation, got the store videos, and questioned the security store thugs. Attorney Spivack kept meeting and talking to the prosecutor until the prosecutor agreed to drop the case even though at the beginning of my case all that prosecutor wanted to do was talk about my past. Would recommend to anyone in need of help in this situation. He gave me my future and I am lucky to have found him.

New years bash and I only had one maybe two drinks but I am on prescribed meds for depression. Cops said I was swerving, but I dont think so. I usually drive careful. I was humiliated and upset facing the loss of my nursing licence and destruction of my career. Each call to other lawyers got me more confused and they were pushing me. No matter how I prayed I couldnt figure out the next step until I talked to Mr. Spivack. He spent an hour on the phone with me on my first call. Just getting honest and clear information gave me some relief. He spent a lot of time talking to me everytime I called and I called him alot. He alse explained the reality and possibilities of my situation as a nurse, with the DMV, with my licensing board, and with the Court every step of the way. He kept the nursing board from coming after me. Mr. Spivack saved my career and got the charges DISMISSED.

God Bless Mr. Spivack. I messed up big but with his help my family had a XMAS blessing.. Had a dui accident with injury. Tried to get rid of my weed but the cops saw it all. I resisted arrest, it was ugly and I was out of control. Cops wanted felony DUI and resisting with possible 3 or more years of prison. Attorney Spivk got me into a alcohol and drug program right away so my family would start to forgive me and then in court he got the charges down to a misdeamer dui, no jail 10 days community service. I was with my family for XMAS. Mr. Spivack was a godsend for me. God Bless Mr. Spivack, I know I said it before but he got me a new lease on life. Gene

So happy I chose Attorney Spivak for my DUI case. I got the best result and more than I ever hoped for because I had an accident and blew .09%. Mr. Spivack worked hard and persuaded the DA that the accident wasn't my fault and got the DUI dismissed. I plead to a wet reckless so no jail, no community service, no breath machine, no restitution to pay back for the accident and only a fine and a 12 hour class.

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.
