Attorney Endorsements

  • Maurice A Priest

    I have known Lindsay Spiller for over 40 years, and as a friend and fellow attorney I have followed his legal career from the beginning. I am not surprised by the favorable endorsements he has received from his clients on this Avvo website. Read them and you will understand why clients appreciate his advice and counsel. As an attorney for over 33 years, it has been my experience that many attorneys lack the social skills and empathy that clients need when confronted with a serious legal problem. Lindsay brought those skills and qualities to his legal career. His experience, expertise, and ability to succinctly communicate verbally and in writing makes him an effective advocate for his clients.
