Sam and Elizabeth are an amazing team. They work extremely hard to achieve the best possible outcome and are always available to guide and support you throughout the process. I picked Sam and his team to help defend my nursing license against the Board. I am so glad I did. They worked tirelessly to advocate on my behalf. Whether you reside in the United States or Canada and have an issue or concern regarding a California professional or occupational license , Sam and his team are tenacious and will fight for you. They are truly extraordinary; I can't thank them enough.
YOU WILL NEVER FIND A LAWYER LIKE THIS. HE WORKS 24/7 FOR YOU. HE IS ONE OF A KIND. HE HELPED ME OUT WITH A CRIMINAL CASE AND WE WON WITH NO DOUBT. I HAVE 100% FAITH IN MR. SPITAL AND WOULD USE HIM AGAIN IN A HEART BEAT.
Samuel Spital is great and most knowledgeable lawyer but most importantly very honest and caring person. Mr.Spital gave me advice with my active businesses absolutely free of charge and spent his valuable time educating me on how to avoid future problems and build solid and reputable business.I am going to recommend him to all my small business friends.I feel like I made a new friend for life and have a strong legal representation in case of any issues arise in my businesses.Thank you Mr.Spital you are truly most honorable attorney I've ever met.
Sam is an incredibly helpful lawyer, who knowledge of dealing with complaints against your license. In the 10 years I have had my Landscaping Contractors License, we have never had a complaint filed against us. We are now dealing with a hostile client who is threatening and unreasonable. Sam has given me valuable advice, on his own time, to help me work through the situation to avoid going to the Attorney General. His advice is so valuable, and I appreciate that he took the time to help me avoid a legal battle. If we do indeed go into legal battle territory, I will call on Sam again to help me out of it, as I know he can do the job right.
Thank you Sam!

They are always available and respond to my many questions promptly. Since day one, he has proven he will do all he can to help my case and to go above and beyond. Thank you Sam and Elizabeth, I can't tell you enough how much it mean to have you on my side. You truly are the best.
Attorney Sam Spital and Attorney Elizabeth Brady were exceptional with handling my case. I currently possess a professional license; however, a poor lapse in judgment on my part late last year placed my license in jeopardy with the regulating Board. I was facing criminal charges for driving under the influence of alcohol; any conviction would require to be reported to the Board thereafter, which may result in the Board suspending or revoking my professional license. Losing my license could ultimately result in the loss of my employment, which would have been a financial hardship for my family and me, as well as created a more challenging position for me to seek employment elsewhere.
After conducting extensive research online, I sought the assistance and services of Spital and Associates, and was immediately confident that they would be able to provide the legal assistance needed in my case, based on numerous positive reviews that have been provided by their previous clients. Attorney Sam contacted me soon after I had submitted my inquiries online, and provided me with information regarding the legal process, as well as their past experience with defending a client who also possessed a license with the same regulating Board. Attorney Sam indicated that winning the case was not guaranteed, but he and his firm promised to strive in order to provide superior and dedicated service to obtain favorable results. After working with Attorney Elizabeth and Attorney Sam for a few months on my case, and upon submission of the documentation regarding my incident, the regulating Board informed me that they have decided not to pursue a Disciplinary Action on me, and that my license would not be affected by my previous actions.
I am extremely grateful for the assistance that Spital and Associates provided, and would highly recommend this legal firm to any professional who may be faced with the possibility of losing one’s professional license. Without the help of Spital and Associates, I would not have been able to retain my professional license, my employment, and my livelihood. Thank you again, Attorney Sam and Attorney Elizabeth.
Sam and Elizabeth, I can't thank you enough for all of your perseverance, strength, knowledge, and kindness. I would have been at a huge disadvantage without you.
Please be happy and know I am eternally grateful for you assistance.
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!
