My husband and I had an unusual legal issue that needed to be settled. It was also complicated by being out of state. Spencer was just great at listening to us and making us feel heard. He did the research necessary and we just always felt like we had a strong ally. We ultimately had him send a letter on our behalf, which was done on time and as expected. We found his billing to be honest and fair. I wouldn't hesitate to call him again.
Over the last 18 years I have had many occasions to consult Spencer Bergstedt for legal advise on both business and personal matters. I have always found his services to be exemplary. I would recommend him without reservation.
Run don't walk, run! Went in for a chapter 7 and had good feelings about after the initial meeting. Paid retainer, gave him all the necessary info and then did not hear anything from him for two months. After many attempts I finally went to his office and confronted him. I told him that we decided to move on with another attorney since we had such difficulty just being able to check in. He mentioned that he was "nearly" done with our filing work. Two days later we received a packet with our filing paperwork, much of which had incorrect info and looked to be hastily completed.
Long story short we hired a competent attorney, paid them and they took care of everything flawlessly! Still have not received monies from Spencer but more importantly a break down of what work was done. Very unprofessional!
I went to him for a bankruptcy in September 2012, he said it would be a simple Ch 7 and when I asked if it could be done before the end of the year he said yes. As of today, it has not been filed. I have had no correspondence from him since January 2013 when he emailed to explain why he hadn't worked on my case. No return of my calls or emails. He came highly recommended and my appointment with him gave me no impression that he would be anything less than good. I have asked for my file and retainer 2 weeks ago, and have heard nothing.
Many years ago, I faced serious and possible life threatening surgery. I had a lot on my mind at the time. Mr. Bergstedt was sensitive and responsive to my requests.. He helped me see the extent of what I needed to prepare for to feel secure that my wishes would be carried out should things not go well. Fortunately all is well and I want to thank him for his work for me and my family.
Spencer helped us set up a LLC for some vacation property and also did my in-laws wills. He was very thorough and easy to work with. he took all the stress out of what could have been a very stressful situation! Thanks, Spencer!
When dealing with the passing of my Father-in-Law last year, Spencer was as great help to the family and was able to deal with some last minute problems my farther-in-law forgot about.
He was very caring and a big comfort to my wife, someone who went way above the average attorney to help us through tough times.
Over the years our life changes left my wife and I with out of date wills. Our living wills were not up to the current state standards. We interviewed Spencer Bergstedt and liked his approach to helping us. Spencer asked a lot of questions and gave us a number of things we needed to think about before creating the new documents. He then drafted the docs based on our input and current Washington law. He presented us with the drafts via eMail which was more convenient for us and saved us a trip to his office. We read the docs in detail and through all our review, Spencer was there to answer questions and advise us. We are now done with the docs and sleeping better knowing our estate needs and medical directives are current and reflect our desires. We recommend Spencer and North Sound Law to all our friends.
Spencer helped me file for bankruptcy during a very difficult time. I didn't understand anything about the process when i started, but he explained everything in simple language and I was really confident I was doing the right thing. When you are in trouble this is the man to have on your side.
Spencer is a great attorney who has handeled several legal issues for me with great skill in a short time frame. He is clear, concise and truly cares about his clients. I can't say enough good about him and his legal abilities. I highly recommend him to anyone!
