Highly recommend
Hired Mr Spears last year when my ex wife tried to dissolve my current marriage. Ex took me to court this year for child custody. Went to court, Mr Spears showed style, grace, compassion and humor. I still have my children. Mr Spears kept in contact throughout the year, up to our court date. He even called on Saturday to see how we are doing. I would HIGHLY recommend his services to anyone needing family services. Definitely a 5/5.

Excellent service
Mr. Spears is extremely experienced and very forthcoming and prompt. He truly cares for his clients and the outcome of their cases. He won my settlement in divorce and followed through with another victory for contempt. I would highly recommend Don Spears for your representation.

Fantastic
Mr. Spears is a great attorney and his office staff is fantastic! I give Donald Spears a ringing endorsement. He is honest and forthright. He knows when to charge ahead and when to step back. I've consulted him on many issues and have always got good answers.

Don Spears- Best of the Best
Don is the Best of the Best. He has been my lawyer for family law for a couple years. He is a wonderful lawyer you can trust and will tell you information about your court case and be straight to the point. I have great faith in Don and his career as a lawyer. There should be alot more like you Don! Thank you for all your help!

Property & Lender Mitigation
D. Spears has successfully mitigated a very difficult real estate property situation for us. We had problems with lender(s), tenants, and even a department of the local municipality. His persistence over an extended period of time, has given us the best possible outcome. His knowledge and attentiveness through every turn has shown to be admirable. --Thank you.

Life Changing!!
Don and his staff had such a vast and in depth knowledge of family law that the word impressive does not do them justice. They communicated frequently with updates, showing my husband and I that our case was a top priority for them. They also responded to questions and concerns usually within a few hours, (even after hours). My husband and I now have full custody of my husband's children, which were in a very dangerous environment. Don and his staff has changed our life and our perspective on attorneys. They showed us that there are those out there that truly care about their clients and work fervently to get the outcome that's desired!!

Stamey vs Brunner / Timmons
My wife and I retained Donald Spears last October 2015. For 10 months leading up to the trial, Don and his office administrator Martha, provided prompt communication to our questions. The defendant and their attorney tried to wear us down with motions and delays, however they kept us focused and their advice was spot on. At trial, Don's experience was the major factor the court awarded a Judgement in our favor. We would highly recommend Don to our friends and family that need his services.

Caring and Vested in Clients
Mr. Spears and his team are very vested in helping their clients. He truly made me feel like he was helping his own daughter when he helped me get out of a bad marriage.

Litigation Attorney | Jan 19
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Spears is a lawyer's lawyer. His many years of experience combined with his countless successes make him an ideal fit for most civil litigation. I for one learned valuable information working with him that i just simply couldn't get anywhere else. A creative and "out of the box thinker," Mr. Spears not only knows the traditional ways of handling a matter, he can certainly find new ways to approach situations presented. I highly recommend Don without hesitation."
