I highly, HIGHLY recommend Mr Spital! He is a very trustworthy and hard working man to make sure you get what you deserve! He made sure he took the time to explain every single thing and right I had! I seriously can't thank him enough!!!!
I highly recommend Mr. Spital for any nurse seeking expert counsel and legal representation, regardless of how big or small you think the accusations made against you are. As a registered nurse (RN) for the past 16 years, I received an accusation from the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) for the first time in my career. Under misguided advice from other RN colleagues, I did not seek legal representation immediately. Additionally, the documents provided by the BRN led me to believe the hearing did not require legal representation, as stipulated in their clause “may or may not need legal representation.”. Therefore, I thought at the hearing, I could share my side of the story with the judge and he/she would see why I believe there was a standing order to perform a Foley catheter on an immobile hospice patient for comfort and prevention of skin breakdown for end of life comfort, as initially oriented by hospice RN. This was the biggest MISTAKE I could have ever made. No matter how big or small you believe your accusations are, please seek legal counsel immediately. If you receive any documents from the BRN, I suggest that you giving Mr. Spital a call STAT. You will need the time for him to properly represent you. I called Mr. Spital on a Saturday morning and received a call back within 30 minutes. He even took time out of his Sunday schedule to provide additional advice. In addition, he provided pro-bono counsel all weekend and helped me navigate my discussions with the BRN deputy attorney. Because of Mr. Spital, I was able to understand my rights as a RN and my options. He provided countless hours of advice to help me with questions after questions as I was extremely uneducated in the ways of law. Without Mr. Spital’s advice and the help of God, I could not get through this difficult time in my life. Unfortunately, since my hearing was three weeks away from my initial contact with Mr. Spital, he could not represent me. However, his patience, responsiveness and expertise in this field leads me to believe that he is the best lawyer for this type of case against nurses from the BRN. I've interviewed at least three other attorneys, none of which come close to the valuable of service that Mr. Spital has provided. As the saying goes, “you get for what you pay for “. Do not hesitate to get legal representation from the best since your license deserves nothing but the best!!!
Within a few seconds of our initial phone interview, Mr Spital made all the difference in my feeling about my upcoming hearing and offered other great alternatives to the probation terms that the RCP board was offering me. Very smart, quick witted,and proactive in his advice and assistance. Nuff said!
I called Mr. Spital after researching and finding his name online. Our case? A contractor taking a sizeable deposit for parts, then failing to do any work or produce parts. I wanted to know if I had a suit and how to efficiently handle my problem. He answered the phone himself. After a brief conversation he recommended I file in Small Claims Court and also file charges with the District Attorney. He could easily have had me come to his office and charged me $$$ to tell me just that, but he saved my time and his, and my money. I will definitely call him again if need be.
Sam spent more than an hour on the phone with me. This was a cold call on a case that he knew he was not going to be able to take. His genuine concern and helpful information were so appreciated at the time because he not only freely imparted his knowledge(he does talk fast) but his encouragement as well. This was as important to me as anything else when most people can barely hear half the nightmare I've endured for nearly 3 years before cutting me off and dispassionately wishing good luck (and farewell). Thank You SAM!
Back in February I had a positive drug test. Sam gave me some helpful information over the phone. We talked almost everyday for about 2 weeks. I was fortunate enough that my test was mislabeled and did not have to take this to trial. Sam talks fast but is very knowledgable with the BRN. Sam would be the only person I would recommend for taking on the Board of Registered Nursing.
It is not everyday that one finds themselves fighting for their livelihood. It is a very unnerving process to say the least. When I found Sam, I was very skeptical. I felt he was most likely going to be “the typical attorney.” I found out very quickly I was wrong! Sam is anything but typical! There are truly not enough adjectives to describe him! I could verbalize all day long how intelligent, hardworking, dedicated, and empathetic he is, yet still this would not do him justice! Every claim made prior to mine about this man is very accurate. Sam Spital is truly a remarkable man, and spectacular attorney. It was such a blessing to find him. You will get the very best representation from Sam because he will settle for nothing less! Equally important is his impressive background. If you want peace of mind and the satisfaction of knowing that you have the very best; stop here, because you have found your man…without a doubt.
BEST LAWYER EVER!!!!!!!!! Makes you feel 100$ comfortable talking to him!!!!!!!!!!!trustworthy, honest straightforward, personable, down to earth lawyer, recommend to anyone who wants a lawyer that is reliable and there for you a 100% I REALLY,REALLY LOVE HIM!!!HE IS HONESTLY THE BEST !!!!! No matte what time I called even late hours he still answered He stayed after hours, even on weekends and even a holiday to accommodate me----who eles would do that? NO ONE!! am so grateful that I found him!!!!!!!He is in it not for the money but he generally wants to help people !!!!
This attorney promised a complete victory. The result was that I was very much misled. I paid almost $10,000 dollars and my result would have probably been better if I had represented myself. Mr Spital was 100% against me speaking to the AG myself. I trusted this attorney and now I have basically lost my license. Plus the fact that he kept asking me to spend thousands of more dollars for even more expert witnesses. I did as he advised and my result was a complete waste of time and money. As a former RN please do not allow this attorney to represent you. Seek anyone else.
Thank you for your time in reviewing the specifics of my case and personally responding to me multiple times on a holiday Sunday. You are an inspiration to me and what I want to be when I become an attorney. You are of the highest ethics and morale. Everyone should hire you should they happen to be in a similar situation as mine. You've given extremely valuable insight on my case and I am very grateful our paths crossed today.
