I love Spencer Hecht. He has a no nonsense approach. He is tough, and tells it like it is. He is knowledgeable and can handle very tough divorce/custody cases. Our custody case wasn't ease because of the mental illness issues of my husbands ex-wife. Spencer was able to see through her BS and do what was best for my step-son. I would highly recommend him!

I first spoke with Spencer Hecht during one of the most difficult times of my life. I contacted his firm only days before my custody hearing, yet Mr. Hecht did not hesitate to take on my case despite the very short notice. At the time, I was unsatisfied with my current representation, and needed an aggressive attorney to attend an expedited hearing with me to regain custody of my child. Mr. Hecht was understanding and reassuring as I explained the details of my complex custody situation. He was knowledgeable about child custody and responded to my phone calls and emails promptly. After retaining Hecht & Associates, Spencer immediately paired me with a senior litigator of the firm to begin preparing for my case. He drafted a letter on my behalf to my former council and as a result I received a complete refund of the retainer I provided to this attorney. My experience with Mr. Hecht was nothing but positive and exceeded my expectations. Though he did not represent me personally, he made certain that my case received the immediate attention that was needed. I was represented by another professional, knowledgeable, aggressive member of his team that arrived to court confident and well prepared and I am thrilled to say that I was awarded Primary custody of my child! Every employee of the firm that I interacted with was not only professional, but helpful and I highly recommend Spencer Hecht of Hecht & Associate Law Firm to anyone seeking representation in a child custody matter. Their level of commitment and expertise exceeded my expectation. My child is now at home with me, and I could not be happier with the outcome.

When I first began using Spencer Hecht in early 2012, my life was deteriorating in front of me. My marriage had fallen apart and I hadn't seen my children in months. I needed an attorney that gave me the guidance and strength that I didn't have, and Spencer was that attorney for me. I have red the negative reviews on here and am truly surprised that these "clients" have so many negative things to say. Spencer was the most ideal attorney for my situation and was the bulldog I was looking for. In the end he fought for my kids like no other attorney would've and I got the best outcome expected, my kids home again. I will forever be grateful and urge all of the "clients" to take a look at what they were really looking for in an attorney, because Spencer is the best.
