    • I recommend Samuel Spital.

    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.

    • I recommend Samuel Spital.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    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!

    • I recommend Samuel Spital.

    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.

    • I recommend Samuel Spital.
    • I hired Samuel 6-12 months ago.
    • Samuel handled my Licensing matter.

    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.

    • Samuel handled my Licensing matter.

    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.

      Lawyer Comment:

      We're sorry to read you report a negative experience, but certainly understand your feelings as it relates to your career. You put a lot of time into nursing and it is disappointing the BRN would not agree to a different result. Being under no obligation, however, it was your decision to voluntarily accept three years’ probation rather than proceed to a hearing to dispute the allegations. The settlement was not an outright revocation or suspension, and you were NOT required as a result of our compelling presentation, among other things, to participate in (a) ongoing therapy; (b) random alcohol and drug screening; (c) a nurse support group; (d) AA or NA recovery program; (e) completely abstain from any alcohol or drugs; and (f) submit to a physical exam and mental health assessment.
      We strive to satisfy every single client, but it is inappropriate for an attorney to allow his client to contact the prosecutor who filed the charges so she can discuss her case. We have reached out to provide further assistance, but we have not received a call or email. Wishing you the best.

    Sam,

    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.

    Dear Colleagues,

    I must say that I wish there was an option for more than five stars....

    I am an Orange County medical doctor and in situations that most doctors, fortunately, are unfamiliar, we need a man who makes it his mission to set the record straight, identify holes in the accusation(s), and identify strengths in our armor. Sam Spital has the grit, knowledge, and comprehensive understanding of the law that is needed.

    I would surmise that regardless of the profession, there is not a person more on top of his or her game when it comes to the representation of professionals before licensing board than Sam Spital. The unfortunate reality is that the boards that govern our practice have at their disposal virtually unlimited ammunition and financial backing to seek remedies for issues that come before them. The medical board presumes that an accusation before them demands a punishment, or, at best, a compromise. In other words, we are at risk of being condemned, or our good names muddied, even without fair process. Sam Spital is a man who levels the playing field and gives a voice to those of us who want only to do well and serve.

    Recently, I experienced a scare working with a county agency. I called Mr. Spital, who was snap to respond to my email inquiry, get me on the phone, and bring about calm and reassurance. For the next 8 hours I walked with more confidence. At the end of the day, I had learned that my fear about a medical board inquiry was unnecessary and that indeed I had nothing to answer to. Those 8 hours were far more comfortable because of this man.

    Had I to face a medical board inquiry, I would want to do it with no one other than this man in my corner. I would, if given the opportunity to recommend anyone to a colleague, look no further than this gentleman, Sam Spital. I wish you nothing but the best Sir...I am in your debt. Dr. C.

    I have worked with Sam on joint-defense matters, and his knowledge of the applicable law and the "rules of the game" in the jurisdiction we worked in was excellent. His number one priority is his client's defense. It is a pleasure to work with someone of his professionalism, attentiveness and knowledge

    Outstanding Litigation Defense. Sam resolved our Superior Court case quickly and wisely. I cannot imagine another attorney getting such a spectacular and winning outcome. Thank you Sam for your personal attention and settling this case for my family, and on top of that for about ten cents on the dollar. You are an amazing person and treated us as a close friend.
