Mr. Spangler respresented me in DUI. I was overwhelmed by the situation and he was knowledgeable, thorough and reassuring. His communication with me was clear and responded to my questions very promptly. He handled my case in an efficient, professional manner, and brought it to a quick and very satisfactory conclusion. I would definitely recommend him.

JR Spangler represented me in a highly contentious divorce, and again in a child support modification. His experience in family law made the process easier for me. JR handled my legal matters in a professional and courteous manner. He was honest and straight-forward with me while remaining sensitive to my emotions and frustrations. He responded to e-mails and phone calls in a timely manner and took the time to explain the process when needed. If I ever need legal representation again I will absolutely call on him. I have highly recommend JR to everyone who asks and know that others I have referred to him have been just as happy with his representation as I was.

My wife and I retained JR about 5 years ago for child custody. JR outlined a strategy based on facts and throughout a 7 day trial cross examined nearly 20 people. His controlled, uplifting demeanor was impactful because he's likable - yet can strike quickly with force. I was awarded sole physical and legal custody of my child. Yes, a man can get custody of his child in MN. Hire JR!
