We recently moved to California, from Virginia, and needed an entire set of new documents - wills, trusts, POAs, Advance Directives etc. Fortunately for my family, we called on Lindsay to help us with this task. We are overjoyed with the result. My husband and I, laymen, did not have a clue about what most of these documents signified. Lindsay took the time (for which he did not charge) to educate us about wills and estates so that we understood what we were signing. We are in our 70's and have signed several wills prior to this one; no one has ever taken the time to explain the difference.
Lindsay listened to us and made sure he understood our needs. Aside from his being a competent, smart (he attended UC Berkeley, and Georgetown Law) caring and fair professional, he has an easy going personality and is a fun person with whom to work.
I wholeheartedly endorse Lindsay!!!!!
We have known and worked with Lin for over 5 years. Whether it is an adversarial contract negotiation with a talent agent, an explosive disagreement with a litigious co-producer, or a dense exploration of legal semantics with real world consequences, Lin has solved all of our problems with unwavering calm, formidable intelligence, and persuasive congeniality. He is absolutely the nicest guy you will ever meet, and the lawyer you would least want on the OTHER side of the table. Or maybe you would. His smile has teeth. But it is a testament to his extreme talent and skill that he rarely has to use them. Lin appeals to reason, fairness and mutual respect. He goes for the win-win, and usually gets it. We truly believe Lin Spiller is THE BEST in the business and look forward to working with him as we produce our first feature film this year.
Lindsay has been one of the best assets to our TV show since it's inception. Attentive, caring, attention to detail, takes time to explain the process and tailor agreements and contracts to our specific needs. Hope he stays in business for a long time!
I was fortunate to have met Lindsay at a coffee shop a few weeks before I exited my former business. His card happened to be on my desk right when I needed it. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney to help work out a deal with my former partners. Lindsay was a master negotiator, getting me exactly what I wanted in our settlement. He always stayed cool calm and collected, and turned up the heat just enough when we needed to. Not only was Lindsay an exceptional attorney to handle the legal details, but he was an amazing friend to talk to during this stressful time in my life. Now that the past is behind me, I am thrilled to have Lindsay as my general council for my new company, and look forward to our continued relationship into the future.
Lindsay has been an amazing and critical part of my growing company. As I tell him (too often) I totally fall down when it comes to legal aspects of business. This is where Lindsay comes in, with a wealth of knowledge, patience, poise and a great sense of humor. My dealings with Lindsay have always been completely comfortable, and dare I say - fun! I look forward to our meetings and dealings, and plan on not only utilizing his services moving forward - but growing and expanding his role as much as demand dictates. I highly and continually recommend Lindsay Spiller - on an almost daily basis - and if you're reading this, contact him now. You will be glad you did.
Lindsay Spiller is a highly principled attorney who is exceptionally careful to learn what his clients need and can afford before he suggests anything. He is knowledgeable and timely. Lindsay helped me and my partner with stock transfer and retirement agreements, advising us about many things we hadn't thought of but were very important issues. His priority was creating a happy outcome for us, regardless.
Lindsay helped me in the early stages of the formation of my business entity. His expert assistance was a tremendous help and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a creative and caring attorney.
I sought Lindsay's advice on a producer's agreement that was offered to me and on a music licensing agreement I was offering to someone else. Lindsay has the rare gift of relaying complex legal concepts in easily understandable language, an ability which I view as extremely important when considering a lawyer. I would encourage those in the entertainment community especially to reach out to him with any legal concerns or questions.
Lindsay worked with me as an attorney on trust and business issues and highly recommend him. He explains the legal language in terms a lay person understands and is very careful to point out the implications of a contract, while keeping in mind that a business inherently has to operate with risk. In addition he does this with patience and humor and very high ethical standards.
Lindsay is the most personable lawyer I have worked with. Which makes what is often a tedious process palatable. His work ethic is superlative and I'm grateful for his patient persistence is working to the right outcome. I've worked with many good lawyers and Lindsay is one of the best.
