About Spencer

Learn Spencer’s areas of practice.

Spencer is a Super Lawyer dedicated to his clients and the rule of law. He has a passion for identifying, developing, and creating innovative solutions in order to ensure the best possible result for each and every client. Most of all, Spencer is an effective communicator with prosecutors, opposing counsel, and judges. He takes great pride in developing a rapport with all members of the criminal justice system and legal community. When facing serious legal issues, it is vital that your attorney is available to address your concerns and, is not only willing to, but also ensures that you are educated on the legal process and applicable law. Spencer’s honesty and integrity form the foundation of his practice.

Spencer earned his Juris Doctor from Michigan State University College of Law, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude, completed the Trial Practice Institute (TPI) certification program, and served as a member of the elite College of Law’s American Bar Association Negotiation Competition Team. He also received a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Michigan State University. He is licensed to practice in all state courts in Michigan, and has been admitted to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

Following law school, Spencer's legal career began at a prominent municipal and insurance defense law firm in the Detroit metropolitan area. Spencer is grateful for his time at this firm, where he gained significant experience providing counsel on a variety of legal issues impacting local communities as well as litigating complex civil matters in state and federal courts throughout Michigan. These first years in practice provided Spencer with invaluable insight into the operation of local government, and in municipal and police liability. Spencer's experience also includes complex family and property litigation, including real estate and commercial transactions.

Due to Spencer's experience and education in criminal justice, and his desire to help those accused as "criminals," Spencer's practice now largely focusses on criminal defense in Michigan state and federal courts. He has significant experience handling complex criminal matters as well as the expungement of criminal offenses in most district and circuit courts throughout the lower and upper peninsula of Michigan. Spencer is most proud of his time at the prestigious criminal defense firm of Lewis & Dickstein, PLLC, where he remains Of Counsel to the firm. Prior to starting Bondy Law, PLLC, Spencer spent time in the trenches at Lewis & Dickstein, PLLC securing dismissals before trial, winning at trial, and obtaining favorable results on appeal. Spencer is grateful for his mentors, Randall M. Lewis & Loren Dickstein who have been integral to his growth as an attorney and counselor. "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17.

Spencer's diversified experience and track-record of success in court provides him with a foundation upon which he approaches every case and legal issue with his firm. He approaches his cases with the attention to detail required for thorough, personal, and successful representation of his clients. Spencer is committed to providing compassionate and honest legal counseling in addition to vigorously advocating on behalf of all clients to achieve the best possible outcome. His reputation with judges and prosecutors for being a fearless and tenacious defender of his client’s interests has put him in the elite group of esteemed lawyers who can achieve extraordinary results.

Couldn’t ask for a better attorney
I was pulled over for a suspected OUI in Brighton MI by the Livingston County Sheriff's department. The police officer said that I had swerved into his lane, crossing over the double yellow lines. Once I passed the field sobriety, I refused to take a breathalyzer, and he took me to jail to test my blood for alcohol. I was released on bond the next day and was referred to Spencer Bondy. I chose to go with Spencer after he was recommended by a family member. I then did my own research and decided he would be the right fit for me.  Since I refused to take the breathalyzer, I was facing both a suspended license and an OUI. He helped me get my temporary license while we were awaiting the court date so I could still work and do everyday activities. He reviewed all of the videos and documents on my case extensively to assure the best outcome. He got both my suspended license and OUI completely dropped. Spencer was able to sift through every step that was made during the experience and found all of the mistakes that were made by the officer. He took the time to make sure I had the best possible outcome, not just a quick plead the case down and move on. He really cared. There were no points added to my license, my insurance did not go up, and I was able to continue working. During my whole time with Spencer, he was always in contact with me and let me know of any updates as soon as he received them. He helped me understand everything that was happening with my case as it was happening. He was available every time I contacted him and he always thoroughly answered my questions. I couldn't recommend anyone more than Spencer.

You have found the BEST attorney out there!
Attorney Spencer Bondy represented me at Novi 52nd district court, he went above and beyond to fight false accusations portrayed against me. In my case he was a court appointed attorney, and it was like a guardian angel was sent to me. I have no idea what my case would have been if i would have gotten anyone else! Spencer Bondy convinced me to fight for this and I’m so happy i decided to, he truly saved my professional life, these accusations would have ruined my career. When i got the news that my case had been dismissed the day before trail i was crying tears of joy. If you need anything hire Spencer Bondy!! He’s incredible and I don’t know where I would be right now without him.

Superb Representation Second to None
Spencer did a simply brilliant job setting aside prior offenses from my record. He was attentive to every detail, thoroughly prepared every step of the way, quickly responsive to any concerns, comprehensive and thoughtful in his legal briefs, and ready to go the extra mile when needed. While other lawyers were convinced that one of the offenses was not expungeable, Spencer did his research and applied brilliant legal analysis to set a new legal precedent for such cases. With his excellent representation, I felt at ease in the courtroom, even in front of notoriously challenging judges. Spencer was also reasonable and upfront in his rates and genuinely wishes to give his clients the best representation possible. He is energetic, highly competent, and worth the investment if you can’t afford to fail in handling your expungement matter.

Compassionate Professional Attorney
Mr. Bondy is not your typical attorney. He is compassionate, empathic, non judgmental, professional, well connected, and will go the extra mile for you. He genuinely cares about you and everything that relates to your situation. Mr. Bondy carefully explained to me step-by-step how my case would proceed, and it transpired exactly how he told me. There were no surprises. His fees are also very reasonable compared to others that I contacted. On a side note, I met him while he was doing pro bono work which says a lot. I can't say enough good things about him.

Expungement and Return of Gun Rights
Dear Spencer, I want to express my appreciation on getting my 2 50 year old misdemeanors expunged. Till I talked to you I wasn`t able to ascertain any information from personal research or another lawyer I temporarily engaged that gave me any confidence I was proceeding along the right path to get my gun rights back. Being located in Traverse City I finally realized I needed a lawyer that was a gun rights specialist and closer to the the districts where my offenses occurred.When I first contacted you, you provided me with clear distinct answers and what I considered a reasonable firm price. Frankly, I wondered how it was I wasted a year and a half going around in circles. Your professionalism was appreciated and keeping me informed at the critical junctures kept my faith that everything was continuing in the right direction. Thanks again. Sincerely yours, Gary Sevakis

Best In The Business!
Spencer Bondy is an amazing Lawyer! I retained spencer because of a operating while intoxicated charge. He went above and beyond what any other lawyer would do. Anytime I had a question or concern he would pick up the phone right away, or call me back immediately. Many lawyers just have one way of doing things. However Spencer was adaptive, he listened to my concerns and made a game plan accordingly. This resulted In an extremely favorable outcome. I can’t even imagine going through my case with out Spencer as my lawyer. I will forever recommend him to anyone I know.

Finally, a lawyer who cares!
Spencer got me out of a traffic ticket from when I was driving during a snowstorm and slid on an unplowed, icy road through a red light. The officer would not cut me any slack - even with a perfect driving record. Rather than paying the ticket, I gave Spencer a call. He was extremely helpful in helping me understand what I needed to do and handled the courts for me so I would not have to take any time off of work. Extremely kind and caring, he called me every time he had an update to make sure I knew exactly what was going on and any possible outcomes. He saved me from getting points on my license, paying insurance increases, and kept my driving record clean! He’s a great guy, very professional, and genuine. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney for any similar matters. 5/5 stars, I will definitely call him if anything like this ever happens to me again.

You have found the BEST lawyer!
Where do I start! First of all, if you were like me, and found yourself in need of a lawyer, and had absolutely no idea who to use, LOOK NO FURTHER! I started looking for a lawyer under the catagory that I needed help in, and I wanted to have one close to my town of South Lyon. There were zillions! I went to the reviews, and Spencer Bondy blew most of the other lawyers away! I called, and He answered!! I Immediately felt like he was going to work hard for me. He was honest about his fee, and if you have every heard the saying, "you get what you pay for", it is so very true with Spencer. He was able to get my charge lowered , and in the end NO probation, and NO community service. I never thought this was possible, and I should have never doubted that Mr.Bondy would work so hard for this outcome! My sentencing was a small fee, and TOTAL PEACE OF MIND, AND FREEDOM! He is respected by everyone at the 52-1st District court in NOVI. He is respectful to you and your family. His communication is spot on and one thing that I will never forget is, he makes you feel like you have a chance, that everyone makes mistakes, and EVERYONE can overcome them!!! I let this entrie experience consume me, and I leaned on Spencer to help. I am thrilled with the outcome! Mr. Spencer Bondy you are my Hero! Truly

You need legal help? you need Spencer!!!
About 20 years ago, I had been going through some things that got me into some trouble, ever since then I've been trying to find ways to get my life back, I talked to several other lawyers (who seemed to have no clue about the laws or related issues I was having). Then I found Spencer while looking for an expungement lawyer, JackPot, not only did he take care of the expungement, but also a couple of other things that came up in the process, he took care of those too. We talked about what could and would't get done, every thing he said he could do, he did. I can't say enough good things about Spencer, I will say, if I ever need legal help again, Spencer is who I'll call.

Excellence at its Best
I’m writing in regards of Mr. Spencer Bondy and his professionalism as a lawyer. I needed a lawyer to expunge 3 felonies from 30 plus years ago, which haunted me throughout my life. I searched the internet for attorneys and liked Mr. Bondy’s site. When I called him, he seemed pleasant and honest. The results were, he won my cases in Michigan. He is very responsive, honest, caring and very intelligent at his profession. I would recommend him to anybody. John

Thorough, Mindful, and Smart DUI Attorney
Spencer went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to my DUI case. He takes the time to develop a strong understanding of a client's situation and then combines this with great knowledge of what the court/judges are looking for. I was expecting a significant jail sentence but instead had the option of avoiding jail time. Spencer thoughtfully and meticulously created a sentencing memorandum pre-trial (which many other attorneys do NOT do), which materially moved the judge to go easier on my sentencing. I will continue to recommend Spencer to anyone who will listen - this is a man with the plan who will help you the most. One of the best decisions I've made in the last several years is going with Mr. Bondy.

Faced with an uphill battle
You would have thought that working with an attorney on a case that was over 30 years old, from across the country, on a felony VOP in superior court that included a bench warrant would have been stressful and problematic. However, I could not have asked better representation. Spencer Bondy was not only well connected in the circuit my case was out of (Pontiac, MI) but he kept me well informed throughout the process. Not only was my case dismissed, but it also ended with me having no conviction on my record. After 30+ years of this case hanging over my head I cannot describe the weight that has been lifted off my shoulders. When you are facing an up-hill battle and the odds are against you in a court room you want the best! There is no one better to call than Spencer Bondy. You are my champion!!! My sincere thanks and gratitude always.

WOW, you need Spencer on your team!!
Mr. Spencer Bondy worked nothing short of a MIRACLE in this case! It began with two felony charges in Washtenaw county and ended with the extraordinary outcome of, “probation”. We chose Mr. Bondy because of his reviews, professionalism , and ability to set realistic expectations. He has since exceeded all possibilities!! Our family was greatly affected by the circumstances of this case; however, without hesitation, Mr. Bondy stayed mindful of this emotional sensitivity throughout the entire ordeal. His communication was consistent and thorough, often breaking down complicated legal jargon into layman‘s terms. Furthermore, he was patient understanding and more than accommodating. We are extremely PROUD and BLESSED to have had Spencer Bondy represent us in our case. We thank you, immensely!

Excellent and Professional
Spencer, helped me with an ordeal with insurqnce companies. He was able to defend me perfectly in the case and had them all reduced to very minor charges when at first they were very serious. Spencer worked hard for me and I am positive he will work hard for you. He is blunt and to the point which in my view is what you need when dealing with courts or companies. I highly recommend Spencer for all your legal needs.

Spencer represented me on a Civil Infraction and Equipment Violation that I received through the Novi 52-1 district court on Christmas day. This all stemmed from an accident that I got into on my way home from the gym. Overall, Spencer met all expectations and relieved me from the headache of dealing with the courts. This allowed me to focus on my day-to-day obligations, while my truck was in the shop (an already frustrating experience). I have known Spencer for a little over 10 years – he has always had a passion for law and a dedication to his client’s wellbeing. This time was no different. I chose Spencer to represent me because I know that he is willing to go above and beyond to produce a positive outcome/result. Not only was he attentive and professional when working hand-in-hand with the prosecutor, but his communication with me was flawless throughout. Not once did I feel any doubt about Spencer’s handling of my issue. I would highly recommend Spencer for any traffic violation and/or criminal matter. He is a knowledgeable, compassionate attorney who is committed to producing positive results for his clients.

Spencer is an Excellent Lawyer
When I was contacted by the police regarding a potential felony criminal charge, I knew I had to find the best lawyer I could. After a number of poor consultations with lawyers who tried to "box" me into hiring them, I set up a consultation with Spencer over the phone. During our consultation, I could tell he was knowledgeable, personable, and respectful of the personal distress I was experiencing. I was confident that he would provide the best representation possible, and I was correct. Over the next few months, Spencer did an exceptional job. He was a fantastic communicator between me and the police and courts, and he took the time to explain everything that was happening and answer all my questions. On several occasions, he worked late or took my calls off the clock to take care of anything I needed and answer any of my questions. He was straight forward and transparent with me, I was always informed of all the facts and it gave me confidence that we were making the right decisions. In the end, the charges were reduced to only a simple misdemeanor and I fully believe Spencer's skill and tireless work ethic made that possible. I highly recommend him and I would absolutely hire him again.
