Excellent Service
Mr Springer was an excellent lawyer in every way. He provided help for me regarding my divorce, and he was exceptionally patient, understanding of the law, friendly, and empathetic to all parties. He was super helpful and knowledgeable every step of the way, and always willing to talk about any particular detail no matter how complicated. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Attorney Springer fights hard and courageously for his clients
I had a situation in February 2015 where my job fired me because they said I failed a written test which qualifies me to do the Job. I pleaded with my employer telling them that I did pass this test and the Doctor even told me that I did. They even denied me the chance to see the test for myself. I really didn't know what to do at the time until Attorney Springer came in to the situation. One of the things that struck me about him is the fact that he listens to you very intently. He really wants to get all the facts down and start piecing everything together. When I told him everything..he immediately begin to work and gather evidence. He fought and got my test results and the test clearly stated that I passed the written test that was administered to me. We had to go to 2 hearings and won... and my job even denied me unemployment benefits and Attorney Springer even fought that and won. I would highly recommend this attorney to anyone. If your considering contacting him for his services, my advice to you is this...make sure you're case stands on integrity. If you go into his office trying to feed him a bunch of lies...he can see right through you. This is an honest man who operates on Integrity.
