Stan instilled the confidence in me to face the rapist/minister who raped me; and meet him with the justice long overdue. The litigation/mediation process itself provided me confidence to assert myself. In doing so, I learned to protect myself from potentially abusive situations.
The settlement itself enabled me to close a very painful chapter in my life. I was able to finally move from my apartment (where I was raped) after many years of being surrounded by those painful memories. I’ve resumed my life towards exciting ventures. Finally I can work towards academic and career goals, so was cruelly interrupted by my rapist. As for the PTSD that I continue to suffer from, those painful flashbacks are now mostly replaced by the justice that Stan provided: Knowing that therapist/minister rapist no longer practices counseling. This has given me that long sought for peace of mind. Objectives were met that exceeded my expectations. Sheer serendipity describes how I found the most qualified, highly skilled counsel in Stan. You cannot find counsel than Stan Spero!

I have known and worked with Stan Speor for many years. His compassion with his clients is like no other I've ever seen or from other attorneys. His compassion far exceeds his law practice and extends into volunteer work to provide victims of abuse by professionals with resouces and support that helps them understand the what has happened to them and how to recover from such abuses.
Stan Spero has a special gift for listening. The most important element of healing is to be heard and understood. It is evident in the first conversation with Stan that you have found someone you can trust explicitity.
Stan is one of a kind lawyer who always stands apart from the rest.
