Aronfeld Trial Lawyers In high school one of my dearest childhood friends, Carrie Marcus, was diagnosed with incurable cancer. At the time, I did not even know what that meant.
She missed most of our senior year. And when she came back to school she parked in a handicap space. She did not have the handicap decal and the school gave her a number of parking tickets. One day in class, she was telling this to our teacher. He told her to tell the principal. I asked if I could go and help her.
I went to the principal and “argued” her case. He could see that she was ill, far more than I realized and agreed to waive the parking tickets. She thanked me for speaking for her.
That event stuck with me in my life. I had an enormous feeling of happiness, knowing that I was able to help my friend. I was always told that I would make a good lawyer. No one ever said that I would make a good anything else. Not a good bicycle racer, football player, cook or doctor. It was always, “you would make a good lawyer”.
I was not sure I wanted to go to law school. I was intimidated by the big books that law students dragged around. My father told me I would love law school, I thought he was crazy since I always had hated school. He was right, I was wrong. Once in law school I decided that I liked the idea of representing people. Real Estate Wills and Bankruptcy never appealed to me.
Upon graduation from law school I decided to focus all of my energies into the representation of the weak, the hurt, the forgotten and those who cannot speak for themselves. I have refused representing big business, insurance companies or the government. To me, every client is Carrie Marcus and I am proud of it.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 1999.

An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Spencer's comment: “Nearly 15 years ago, I represented a little girl born with a severe birth defect. The doctor I sued and his lawyers filed a complaint against me with the Florida Bar for the aggressive way I handled the case. I was a young lawyer and the media was involved in the case. I am proud of how hard I worked for this girl and the result that we were able to achieve.”
