• When I handed thousands of dollars to Mr. Spiegel for retainer in June 2016, he proceeded to do whatever he wanted or did not want to do. Face to face he appears competent but once leaving his office there was no follow through, he and his staff were unprofessional and lacked legal knowledge. Mr. Spiegel did not return over 90% of phone my calls or emails - I was left in the dark as he failed me and my case… my hands were tied once retaining him.
I fired Mr. Spiegel in November 2016 due to the overwhelming and extensive damage done to my case. This included misfiling with the courts, wrongful advisement for deposition, extending my case against my wishes/without consultation, missing case management deadlines “he” had authorized, acting on his own volition, ignored my refusal for closing conflict at opposing counsel’s office, not reviewing closing documents costing me thousands, left me in the middle of my deposition for personal reasons, non-preparation for court, non-preparation for Plaintiff’s deposition, and refusing to seek pertinent information which would resolve opposing conflicts in the case. As my lawyer, Mr. Spiegel did not inform me of my rights to whatsoever to an appeal when the judge conflicted his own prior orders he had set forth. To this day, I am still stuck in a case Mr. Spiegel extended that has no end in site because of he took it upon himself to sign a new case management with the opposing counsel without my authorization, against my wishes and without speaking to me about it as required by the judge. Once you hire an attorney you have no rights – only your counsel is heard and this one will do whatever he wants.
I am still to this day tied up in litigation thanks to Doug Spiegel.

I met Mr. Spiegel and his team the first day I came to him in search of a great divorce attorney. From the first day, Mr. Spiegel made me feel very comfortable and welcome. He introduced me to his entire team and they worked tirelessly on my behalf. I would tell anyone the only attorney I would turn to as my advocate is Mr. Spiegel and his ever present, professional team!

When I needed the legal help of a Lawyer, I was suggested to Douglas Spiegel by many. I am very Thankful for how he handled my case as well as how attentive he & his associates were. If I ever had any questions, they were answered within an hour of me emailing them. His Legal team was very quick to respond with both Professionalism & Care. I was kept up to date on the handling of my case whenever something new came up. I can tell you Douglas Spiegel & his associates worked tirelessly & around the clock to help me out. Couldn't have asked for better!

My wife surprised me with divorce papers on Jan 15, 2017. I needed an attorney and contacted Mr. Spiegel. He was able to see me the next day and I showed him the paperwork I received from my wife's attorney. They were asking from 50,000 as part of the settlement. I was told by my wife's lawyer that the prenuptial agreement that she signed prior to our marriage, was no good in Florida that is were Mr. Spiegel came in. He look over the paperwork and said the prenuptial was good and would hold up in court. He said he would send a letter to her attorney and keep me post which he or his staff did via email.
She settled for 15,000 without court action. Thanks to Mr. Spiegel for being, honest, up front and keeping me posted every step of the way. Not to mention the money he saved me.

Mr. Spiegel from the very first counsult helped me feel at ease with my divorce case. He was very attentive and timely with my questions that I had regarding my divorce. I would highly recommend Mr. Spiegel for any family law case. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and helping me understand my legal options during a very stressful time. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case and would not think twice about hiring Mr. Spiegel again.

I was beyond all reason. I had no clue where to start. My marriage was done. Never had seen it coming..Mr. Doug Spiegel took my case, even in the mental state I came to him in--and reminded me it was like any other negotiation, he took the burden and stress,and said "we just need to go thru the process". He and his staff kept me very well informed throughout the entire case. I was emailed everything that was received, court date on the docket, and more often than most...I appreciate the honesty, knowledge and experience...(Can't say some of it -I didn't really want to hear.) He has shown kindness and empathy shown in my time of crisis which I will always be grateful. I am very fortunate to have Douglas E. Spiegel as my attorney and I gladly would recommend hiring him and his office if you have a need for family attorney, as a matter of fact, I do, all the time!

Mr. Spiegel is honest, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable about Family law. He was always available to speak with me about my Divorce, even after business hours. I would recommend Mr. Spiegel to anyone going through a high conflict divorce. He will ease your mind and guide you every step of the way.
