Mr. Spies provided outstanding legal counsel. Having never required legal representation before, I did not know what to expect, and given the seemingly limitless scope of the investigation, we had to be prepared for anything.
Mr. Spies spent a significant amount of time with me, going over evidence and other materials, and represented me very well during my testimony.
I felt exceptionally fortunate to have such a committed and profressional advocate as Mr. Spies and was grateful that he was able to serve as my attorney.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
