I will personally recommend you and your firm to anyone in need.
My family and I want to express my sincere appreciation to you for handling my case so personally and professionally. Your accomplishments are not simply attributed to expert leadership and hard-working employees, but you truly care about the person behind the case. You treated me with respect and empathy, always answering my question or concerns promptly. Your dedication to my case was over and above anyone else in your field (astoundingly often getting back to me on weekends and evenings.) So this is a thank-you note for representing me on my claim. I will personally recommend you and your firm to anyone in need.

Relentless Pursuit of Justice
Mr. Spizer took on my case about one year ago even though he and I both knew the challenges we would face in moving forward. Mr. Spizer did not waiver, he and his team moved forward with such conviction. I especially appreciated the level of communication Mr. Spizer provided... he was always willing to take extra time to explain things to me in layman's terms. I found Mr. Spizer credible and dependable, two characteristics that are difficult to find. He was relentless and unwaivering in my case, I highly recommend him!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Early in my career, I represented a major car company that was sued by a plaintiff represented by Greg. Even though I was a young attorney at the time, he always treated me with respect. But I now endorse Greg for another reason - it was his compassion for his client that inspired me to become a plaintiff's attorney, representing those who need it most. We still meet regularly to discuss war stories/cases, and his commitment to his clients has only grown."
